Since a picture's worth a thousand words and all that, allow me to sum up everything that happens in The Iron Daughter.
Girl meets Boy.
Girl becomes obsessed with Boy.
Boy treats Girl like crap and tells her to leave him alone, after insulting her in front of everyone.
Girl does not react like this, as any self-respecting female would have.
Or even this, which would have sufficed.
Girl decides to weep instead.
Friend falls for Girl.
Girl pines after Boy anyway.
Boy tells Girl they ca ...more
Meghan and Ash. When you think about it... What does she really know about him, besides that he's gorgeous and 'icy'? He tried to kill her several times now. I don't know but that doesn't exactly scream boyfriend material to me.
Don't get me wrong, I nearly creamed myself when I read he has a silver stud in his ear. Add the billowing coat and I'm sold. ...more
What a complete disappointment compared to the utter bliss I felt from the first one. Meghan is the reason why I gave this book a two! I shall proceed to have my fangirl moments and my complaints now:
1. You see, the first 114 pages were decent. However, I must say I had a deep longing to see my Puck! I couldn't stand it. I did not laugh or giggle once throughout the beginning, considering that Prince Ash is an absolute bore.
When Puck finally made his grand entr ...more
'The Iron Daughter' begins with Meghan in captivity at the Winter Court. Ash has transformed into someone unrecognizable, denying any feelings for Meghan and turning his back on her. As his antics become crueler, ...more
Short but detailed recap:
I'm so pissed off right now.
"You don't need a machine gun to kill a fly."
No, but you'd probably need one to kill a Meghan, so I'd keep it within reach.
"I’m not some squealing cheerleader you have to babysit."
On this one I agree. In comparison, cheerleaders have so much dignity that th ...more
When I first read The Iron King I enjoyed it. I found Ash intriguing, Puck endearing, Grim deliciously mysterious, and the iron fey’s origins refreshing. I applauded Kagawa for conceptualizing a breed of fey borne of our obsession with technology. I noticed obvious similarities between The Iron King and the ...more
That's the TL;DR version of the review. The longer version is a lengthier rant of sorts so strap on, if you're ready!
You would think the sequel could not get much worse considering the first book had already a bunch of cliches, but somehow... just somehow it beats it by far. The Iron Daughter is full of predictable "twists", there is absolutely no mystery in anything, because everything is so obvious from the moment the first hint comes up, but of cour ...more
And I loved The Iron King's mythology, charcters and plot, so I did have to wonder could Julie Kagawa do that all over again? Well,YA Fantasy Fans, she did even more!
What I loved about The Iron King was the mythology -- the nod to traditional faerie lore and then the completely justified and believable addition of an Iron Court. This tilted the familiar power struggle betw ...more
This one was a suprise. The first one, it was really good but I never thought I'd give the next one 5 stars, but it really was amazing so I couldn't help but giving the highest rating there is.
So, the book picks up from where it left off in the first book. Ash delivers Meghan to the Unseelie Court. What happens next is for y ...more

Guys now I'm going to review this book and yeah let's use pros and cons to make it a teensy bit organize...shall we?
A Buddy Read with the awesome MacHalos!!!
This could have been so much better than it is... I don't know, maybe it is a case of "it is not you, it is me" situation, but I didn't really enjoy it at all... I appreciate the thought and work that has gone into creating the book and the series as a whole and the previous book was not bad at all, but this one somehow took the air out of my enthusiasm for it. It could also have to do with the type of relationship that is portrayed in this v ...more
I am so impressed because this was just soooooooo much more interesting and better than the first one. This was just coooooool ♥ (while we are at it, i dont even know how to write this review properly).
So...before you read this one, i suggest you read the Winter's Passage which is kind of necessary because it shows how Ash feels for Meghan and his warnings to her about Winter's court (which she, of course, ignores) and the trip to the Winter's court, with a danger around ...more
The beginning of the story started with Meghan staying in Tir Na Nog, the Winter Court, where Queen Mab is the monarch. ...more
In this book it was as if Meghan’s character had taken a complete U-turn. She wasn’t your kick-butt heroine in the first book either but she was even worse in this. Firstly, I had mentioned the same in my review of 1st book as well - that Meghan and Ash didn't exactly lack ...more
I enjoyed this one better than the first.
I quite liked the end, however I think that the book would have had more impact without the epilogue.
I prefer Julie Kagawa's Blood of Eden series. To be fair, I am not that interested in The Fey fantasies, while I can't get enough of vampires.
The Iron King (The Iron Fey #1) - 2 stars
The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3) - 1.5 stars
The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4) - 1 stars ...more

The Iron Daughter leaves off right where the The Iron King stops. That being said... You might not want to read the rest of this review if you haven’t read book number one, because it might be a tad bit SPOILERY!
You’ve been warned.
I loved Meghan in the first novel.... but at the beginning of The Iron Da ...more
Despite the fact that I feel Meghan obsessed a little too much over Ash (especially in the beginning), this book was amazing. The character development, plot and storyline made up for most misgivings of Meghan's flaws. I'm really looking forward to reading the 3rd book!
Can you see the horror? I think we need an exorcist here...please...somebody, HELP!
I actually like the setting about feys, I also like the description about the otherworldly landscapes and the different fey kingdoms, I enjoy the concept about the Iron Feys and the little twists and turns the author had offered.
But what I can't stand is Meghan, the main character, acting like a w ...more
Ok, um...let’s see..First off: I really, really liked this one. I absolutely love the world Kagawa has created and all the characters in it (IRONHORSE, YOU SERIOUSLY ROCK!). I love Ash, he makes my stomach do flip flops and my pulse race and I devoured this book just like its predecessor. There’s a but, though. Unfortunately, there were a few things that bothered me.
1. Meghan told Ash too soon that she loved him. I cringed and smacked my forehead when I read that part. They di ...more
I have a feeling that nobody would get anything done without Grimalkin, or whatever its name was.
Most of this book went something like this: "Hey, let's get ourselves in hopeless situations and wait for the cat to show up and save us."
I'm kidding, of course. This book was really fun. The writing in this is so good; it's so easy to picture the Nevernever. (I don't ever want to go there. Never, ever, ever..)
It's creepy as hell. And things ...more
You're kidding me - right?
That is not how you write a sequel!
I am beyond disappointed by this novel. It was simply a chore to read. And there is purely 1 reason for my general dislike of the novel:
A.k.a. The Bella Swan of the Iron Fey series. I couldn't stand to read about her. She was just so irritating. I get it - you're in love with Ash - but I mean, c'mon. Have some self-respect, girl.
Look. I love romance. I'm the romance kinda gal. If there isn't romance in a book, I'll make romance. ...more
But when your mortal enemy back and steal a very valuable item that incre ...more
Wow! I'm blown away and in complete awe of this book!
I don't want to say to much about the story itself since everyone just needs to pick this up A.S.A.P, but I will say that it's Incredible!
Julie Kagawa has out did herself. To every reviewer who said The Iron Daughter was better then the first, wasn't kidding!
I am in love with this series, this book, these characters.
With hauntingly rich and vivid writing Julie has once again captured the attention ...more
It was all so stupid. There's nothing good to say about it. Meghan is a moron. If it wasn't for her merry gang of followers, she either be dead or someone's slave by now. Whenever something happens someone always pops up at just the right time to save her. People continually warn her that Fairyland is dangerous especially since she doesn't know the rules and customs. Apparently she isn't capable of heeding anyone else's advice. She makes one mistake after ano ...more
