About The Iron King:
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.Source: Info in the About The Iron King was taken from GoodReads at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6644117-the-iron-king on 02/07/2011.
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.
I really enjoyed the writer's style, the way she wrote about the backgrounds of the Nevernever and characters. It was hard putting the book down just to go to bed. The first few chapters was a bit confusing because, I first thought that I am reading an old fairy tale and not a new and fresh story. What I mean by that is, is that the writer used old fairy tales and it did not feel that it was her own and that it started to become a bit predictable for the ending of the book. But the more I read the more the writer started to make it her own and that is when I started to enjoy the story.Books In The Iron Fey Series:
There was however one character I did get annoyed with and that was Meghan Chase. I find her weak even though she has incredible powers. This character also cry to much in every chapter and that she does come across as someone that is blind to her surroundings and predicaments. Even into the Iron Daughter Meghan still has not grown up yet and still cry and hide to mush. As a reader I just could not get into Meghan's character.
But apart from Meghan Chase I fell in love with the books and the characters, the story is well written and very addictive.
I am looking forward to The Iron Queen to come.
