Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10–In The Iron King (Harlequin Teen, 2010), Meghan Chase, half Summer faery princess, half human, thought she had defeated the Iron fey. When they steal the Scepter of the Seasons from the Unseelie Court, where she is being held prisoner, she realizes that the battle is far from finished. She escapes, along with Ash, an Unseelie prince. To find the scepter, they journey through the faery and human worlds. Meghan must learn whom she can trust and to rely on her own smarts. After a slow start, the action picks up. The romance between Ash and Meghan intensifies, resulting in a cliff-hanger that sets the stage for a third book in the series. Fans of the first one will eat this up.–Ginny Collier, Dekalb County Public Library, Decatur, GAα(c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

More About the Author

Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn't getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time (okay, at least the illustrations did), but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a
real job.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, an obnoxious cat, an Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and a hyper-active Papillion.

Sigh. I really wanted to love this book as much as I loved Iron King...I really hoped the things that bothered me in Iron King would sort of fade into the background in this second installment of the Iron Fey trilogy. But unfortunately the reverse happened.

My main issue is with the heroine, Meghan Chase. I didn't love her in Iron King, but the jury was still out. After finishing Iron Daughter, I'm afraid I've pretty much lost hope. For one thing, the damsel in distress situation that was a bit of an aggravation in Iron King only escalates in Iron Daughter. In the rare instance that Meghan actually manages to hold her own in a fight, it's not really due to hard work and determination (i.e. strength of character), but rather the sheer luck of spontaneously to be able to use iron glamour (a very intriguing, unusual, and useful skill which Meghan seems, for the most part, far less interested in investigating than she is in pining away for the various dudes in her life...harrumph).

Though she can generally be relied upon for the damsel in distress scenes, Meghan is for the most part not a consistent character; her choices and actions are often not what we would expect given the way her character was developed in the previous book. Her concern for her brother, which was the driving force of Iron King, is now put on the back burner, though his safety is far from secure. I really hate inconsistent characters (unless the tendency towards inconsistency is actually part of the character) and so this was a serious stumbling block.

*Spoilers below (vague ones)*

Equally grating was Meghan's endless angst over the whole Ash thing. When Ash spurns her, she's all "woe is me, I have nothing to live for now; I wish I were dead.

Most young girls would fall head over heels for a book about a normal girl who turns out to be a faerie princess, gets pursued by two gorgeous faery guys (one is a prince and the other is the most famous faery ever), gets to go to her school dance with said gorgeous guys, has not one but two makeover scenes, and finally gets to ride a unicorn into battle!

I'm a huge fan of paranormal YA even though I'm well into my twenties, and there are many great titles that readers of all ages love. I wanted this book to be another addition to that list, but when your not exactly thirteen anymore, you might find THE IRON DAUGHTER somewhat lacking.

Like the first book in The Iron Fey series, The Iron King, the main plot and unique world building of THE IRON DAUGHTER are excellent. After the demise of the Iron King in the previous book, the Iron fey are divided and half are planning another assault to takeover Faerie, destroying both the human and faerie worlds in the process. Megan and her friends (Ash, Puck, Grimilkin, and a few others who might surprise you) take up the quest of stopping them. A string of somewhat disjointed scenes (see the first paragraph) lead them to a massive battle scene that easily trumps The Iron King's excellent final fight.

I had hoped that Meghan's adventures would have matured her and given her more insight into the guy she claims to love. Sadly, she was as juvenile as ever mouthing off and foolishly jumping to the wrong conclusions time after time after time. Which made it all the harder to understand why Puck openly threw his hat in the race for Meghan's heart in this book.

I wasn't big on THE IRON KING. As I was interested in the quest, I decided to try THE IRON DAUGHTER anyway. I didn't finish it because the first part did nothing to change my mind about the series.

Meghan Chase and Ash are together now, but because of their agreement she must stay in his mother's treacherous Winter Court. He gives her several warnings about the situation she's gotten herself into. Instead of trusting him, Meghan proceeds to draw attention to herself and their relationship.

There could be potential in the court. After all, Ash has several conniving brothers who aren't happy that the youngest is the favorite. The queen herself has all those issues with Oberon. But the Winter Court is quickly dispensed with (and several potentially interesting characters - as set up in the beginning - are killed) and the real story begins when Meghan continues her quest.

At this point, I closed the book to go do something. It's been quite awhile now and I haven't bothered to pick it back up and doubt if I ever will. I know several people have been enjoying the Iron Fey series, and more power to them. But I don't think Julie Kagawa's works are for me.

Understand that my personal review is significantly different from other reviews I've read on this series. It's just my humble opinion that the blatant lack of originality casts a dreary shadow over the world of the fey in Kagawa's Iron Daughter.

We spend the first part of the book with Meaghan and Ash running from place to place while being chased by basically everybody. The entire time they are lustfully despising each other while Kagawa insists upon trying desperately to convince readers that they are actually madly in love with each other and it's merely fate that keeps them a part. I'm thinking maybe a play on Romeo and Juliet but with this new twist combining Ash's deeply rooted reluctance and Meaghan's desperate attempts to hold on. There was nothing that made me feel or see any real love between these two. It was almost as if Kagawa is trying to literally force the two together to prove a point. There's nothing that might lead me to believe that Ash might be worth the trouble or that Meaghan might be worth the trouble to Ash. Then, there's this constant reminder of Ash's first and TRUE love, Ariella. What girl in her right mind wants her true to love to be mourning after some other chick? That's not fantasy...

It was the same old, same old in every chapter. Ash and Meaghan run and hide, then they do it again, Ash fights in all his radiant glory while Meaghan plays damsel in distress--as she has the entire time including book one. She gets herself into trouble and her two lover boys come to her rescue as she stands idly by and whines "Oh, what will "I" do if "I" lose Ash...Puck...Ethen...my parents. Then a little tiny trick by Meaghan always saves the day after everyone else has done everything else and is usually near death.

Which book is which?
Book 1 = The Iron King
Book 2 = The Iron Daughter

Winter's Passage is a novella / short story that serves as a bridge between books 1 and 2.

Gosh I can't wait!
I am also very excited for the Iron Daughter! I really wasn't much into Faeries and all that before I read this book, but after I read it I became a lot more open to this sub-genre in teen paranormal. I really liked Meghan and am really looking forward to what happens between her and Ash!

Oh my god! I NEVER thought Iron Daughter was going to end like that! So beautiful and sad at the same time. The moment he said "I love her." it was clear that it was going to be one of my favorite books. Ok, enough sighing, back to topic^^

The Iron Daughter Review
The original poster probably has an advanced reader copy (ARC) of the book. Publishers often send out ARCs for review... in the YA world, many of those ARCs go to book blog review sites. You can find numerous reviews of the Iron Daughter out on blogs, and the author has several posted on her... Read More
