Blurb from Goodreads:
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 Review:
Breathtaking. Thrilling. Heartstopping. The stakes are higher than before. The Iron Daughter is a fantastic spin of action, romance and heartbreaks. Meghan was a mess in the first few chapters of the story. She was crying a lot in The Iron Daughter but thank god she snapped out of it and was the old Meghan we all loved again.

Ash is brilliant as always. I love how the challenges, obstacles and conflicts he faced in his relationship with Meghan were played out. It breaks my heart and there are questions swirling in me wanting answers.

Puck is the joker of the group. He is simply adorable and awesome as always. Although I do love him, my heart belongs to Ash.
All the characters that were in the first book are back: Grimm, Ironhorse and as well as new characters.

And I am so fond of Ethan, Meghan's cute 4 yo brother. Although his scenes were brief, he has always left a deep impression upon me. I can't wait to read the spinoff series focusing on an older him.

The Iron Daughter was simply wonderful. The pace was fast and 'read till' can't put it down' exhilarating. The Iron Fey series is a simply MUST read. Go grab it now!
