My Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
What can I say? I loved The Iron Daughter. I think Meghan has grown up quite a bit since the first book, though I knocked off half a star because there are times when she's annoyingly needy. That being said, I like Meghan as our main character, and I felt that I could understand her choices and actions. The balance between action and romance was just perfect for me in this book, with little pinches of humour here and there (Grimalkin, gotta be my favourite character). As a Team Ash-er, I have to say I thought the reappearance of Puck and the absence of our Ice Prince would be the worst part of this book, but I was wrong. Puck, as much as it pains me to admit, is a great character; funny, laid-back and just what Meghan needs after all she's been through (I'm still Team Ash though, and I was happy when he came back). I also enjoyed reading about Meghan and her newfound ability, and I liked learing about the divide between the Iron Fey. I have a theory about why Meghan has this new ability, but I can't say why because it's too spoilery (even for me :P). So if anyone wants to discuss ater they've read the book, feel free to get back to me! And the ending, wow. Wow wow wow. Hats off to Julie Kagawa. She knows how to suck you in and then leave you hanging. I wish The Iron Queen weren't so far away!
All in all, read this book if you enjoyed The Iron King. And if you haven't read The Iron King yet, what are you waiting for?
