    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—ironbound 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 stuck 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.


 My thoughts

Story: I read so many bad review for this book, I was hesitant to read this book at first. However, I wanted to finish this series, so I got the book. It took about a hundred pages to really get into this book, but after that the book picked  right up. The book was fast paced and had a lot of twists I did not see coming. I also loved the love triangle in the book. The rising tension with Puck and the heartbreak over Ash, was really great to read.

Characters: The characters were very solid in this book. However, I got annoyed with Meghan, when she didn't understand that Ash had to hide his feelings. He even told her why before they got to the palace. But at the same time it shows the great character development that Julie Kagawa put in this book. At the beginning of the book Meghan was this naive character, but at the end of the book she was this fierce character that showed no fear.

 Writing: The writing was great in this book. Nothing felt forced in the book. Also when you read this book you can see how much thought went into making the nevernever, and that is what makes a great book; authors really taking a moment to think about how the world is going to be. The nevernever was a really great world to read about.

Ending: The ending was really good. I love the sacrifices every one made and the loyalty that Meghan and Ash have for each other. It was heart melting.

Overall: This was an enjoyable book, and a good sequel to The Iron King, although I think it will be overshadowed with the next books. I did not give this book an A+ because it was a bit slow at first and I did not like the characters for awhile in the book, but those are really my only complaints.

This book got...
