Book Review: The Iron King
Book: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy (YA)
Page Count: 363
Favorite Character: Robbie/Puck is my favorite. I love Ash, but he isn't my favorite, I'm sure that will change in later books as everyone seems to adore him.
Plot: (From Goodreads)
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
First off, I love faeries so I knew I was going to really enjoy this book, and I did. The writing was good, not the best, but I did enjoy it. And Meghan, the main character, is fun and interesting to read about, I enjoyed watching her devlop and grow in this book.
The faerie lore in this book was fun to learn about and the adventure that ensues as Meghan tries to find and rescue her brother is a really a lot of fun to read about. It's very faerie heavy, though, so if you don't like that particular creature, then this might not be for you. But, overall, it's a good book.
