The Iron King is a fast paced, magnificently written story that kept me turning the pages. The settings are exquisitely detailed without being overly wordy and even the supporting characters are dynamic and real. The heroine is tough, stubborn, and somehow vulnerable at the same time, and much more empowered than the female leads that I've found in other YA novels. While there is a wonderful romance woven throughout the tale, this is not a story of a teenage girl pining over the mysterious bad boy she can't have. There is a ton of action and adventure, including beautifully crafted and thrilling fight scenes as Megan journeys through strange and dangerous lands to rescue her brother. All told, the Iron King exceeded all my expectations and, I think, stretched the genre in new and exciting directions. I highly recommend it.
