A special Thank you to Harlequin and Net Galley for sending me this book to review.Publisher's Summary:
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.
WOW! This next installment is awesome! We finally get the character development that I so wanted. I got to know the characters better along with all the adventure and danger they get into! Really enjoyable. This series is going to be big. If you like faeries then this is for you.
What I liked:
ALL the romance! WOO HOO! I love a book with some kissing, and this love triangle is sweet! I didn't know who I was rooting for until the end. I just like both the boys. I'm a sucker for anything romantic!
What I didn't like:
There were parts where the charcters were just waiting around for something to happen. Just waiting. I thought that would be a good time for something romantic, since they weren't doing anything else...but we were just waiting. Other than that the book was great! I really enjoyed it!
WINTER'S PASSAGE,a free novella in the Iron Fey series will be available for download June 1st. It takes place between THE IRON KING and THE IRON DAUGHTER and follows Meghan and Ash on their perilous journey deep into the heart of Winter. Check out EnterTheFaeryWorld.com for more details.
Sounds like a good read. Not sure it would be my cup of tea but I might give it a go.ReplyDelete

Argh... I have to read this series! Usually I don't go for fantasy books but it sounds like I have to make an exception.ReplyDelete
I'm a fantasy junkie! Got into it a few yrs ago and now I can't stop! I love everything about it.ReplyDelete
This series is great, and I can't wait to read the free novella on June 1st! If it's free it's for me! I know there is going to be some really great things that happens between Ash and Meghan!! Woo hoo!! There had better be loads of kissing....
I need to get these two books and read them.ReplyDelete
