Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

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.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book. The cover is gorgeous so there’s always a plus. Mrs. Kagawa has the art of writing down to a T. The flow to the story is great and never gets boring. There is something interesting going on throughout the story. The secondary characters are well developed and aren’t left wanting. The first time Robbie goes into the Fairy world and Meghan sees him for his true self, I could see the transformation in my head. Now that’s a really good writer and it stuck with me. Let me just say that Ash is every good girls dream of a bad boy. First, he’s a prince and not the goody goody type either. Second, he has some really cool talents with ice and he’s willing to use them. Thank god for that, I so hate when a character has cool powers and whines about them. Meghan is your typical teen, not really all that popular and kinda the outsider. So I think there are a lot of kid’s that could relate. This story surprised me and it didn’t go where I thought it would. It’s fresh and different from anything else that I’ve read. In a good way. Read this book, young or old! No disappointments from this one.
