Opening Lines: The Iron King stood before me, magnificent in his beauty, silver hair whipping about like an unruly waterfall. His long black coat billowed behind him, accenting the pale, angular face and translucent skin, the blue-green veins glowing beneath the surface.

Memorable Quote: “You’re here, and the only dance I want is this one.”

Favorite Characters: Puck and Charles

Summary:

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is a 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.

Review:

I am in love with this series! I’ve only recently dove into the many YA series that deal with fairies [actually, the review I'm posting tomorrow is on another fairy book]. The Iron Princess, which picks up  where The Iron King left off, tells more about the world of the Nevernever and leaves the reader begging for more. Unfortunately, the third book, The Iron Queen, doesn’t hit stores until February 2011.

Meghan is trapped by Mab, the Winter queen. Ash is ignoring her, Oberon can’t help her, and the Winter fey unanimously want her dead or worse. Left to her own devices, Meghan can only hope that she’ll survive the ordeal, and won’t be turned into a living ice sculpture.

In this novel, there are red-eyed iron horses, gremlins that live in iPods, and a world between this one and the Nevernever. As the tension builds between the Winter and Summer armies, will Meghan be able to prove that the real threat is the Iron fey? Or will all of the ‘old faeries’ soon become extinct?

Filled with battle scenes, romance, and several pages of quote-worthy wit, The Iron Princess is a book you defintiely have to check out. I give it 5/5 stars.

    Came across your post and it reminded me I really need to start this series! I have the first two books but have not had a chance to read them yet. I’ll have to move this series up on my list – it sounds really good!
