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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
From In Bed With Books
In this latest installment, Meghan is being held prisoner by the Queen of the Winter Court and Ash's warnings are hitting home with his indifference. As tensions between the Summer and Winter courts explode into the threat of war, Meghan will have to tap into her unexplored powers. Problem is, a spell has cutoff those powers.
Lots more surprises in this book compared to the previous book. Not only that, the author has an uncanny knack for manipulating emotions through her words. In book one, I was Team Ash, not seeing Puck as a romantic interest, no matter that he did have feelings for Meghan. In this one, I totally flipped to Team Puck, surprising myself. Then at the end, I switched back--ugh. Who knows how I'll feel in the next book. Either way, this has become an addictive series and I look forward to reading more.
With a rave review, why the four stars? I found too many lulls in the story where I started skimming. If these had been cut, the story would have been much shorter, but way more intense. Even with the lulls, I'm a fan until the end.
Here are the current books including the novellas:
* The Iron King
* Winter's Passage (1.5)
* The Iron Daughter
* The Iron Queen
* Summer's Crossing (3.5)
* The Iron Knight
