Details 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.
Iron King devoured me from the start to the last drop of it.
But whats best about this book? is that it bring all my favorite childhood stories along with a twist on modern day.
Most fae books share some similarities but Kagawa manage to outstand them in her own kind of way. She created an entirely new world and theory behind the magical, and somehow still manages to make it come alive in your mind like you knew it existed all along which is totaly amazing.
And the characters? well let just say that they are easily attached with. Each character epecially grim and puck are extremly likable.
GOSH, after reading this book I have new version of Puck "Robin Goodfellow" in my mind now. Not the one in the midsummer night's dream old movie. bah! anyway, cant wait for the next book.
