Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Spoiler Free Book Review
I bought this book with my own money. 

 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.

I was at first a little scared to read this. It had been a year since I read The Iron King, and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get into it just as I had before... Well, boy was I wrong!

The Iron Daughter did not disappoint at all. The cover is still as beautiful as it's predecessor, and the characters were just as enjoyable. Even if it has been a while since you read The Iron King, Julie makes no mistake as to fill you in on what has happened but not up to the point where Julie is drowning you with recaps of her previous novel. The world of the Nevernever never ceases to fascinate me. Julie Kagawa's splendid writing pulled me in, just as she had worked her magic (or shall we say glamour?) over me in the first book. The fighting scenes were absolutely exciting and my heart raced like there was no tomorrow. My heart did race for another reason though and one other reason only: romance. There are many heart wrenching, tear jerking moments as well as moments that make your heart beat so hard you're practically giggling and squealing like a little girl.

In all, the sequel was just as, in a lack of better words, amazing as the first one. It was extremely hard to put down and when I did have to put it down, I couldn't stop thinking, "What's going to happen next? Ahh, I need this book in my hands. NOW." I have high hopes for The Iron Queen. This book shall also go into a list of my all-time favorites.

Rating: 5 Stars+ ★+
How was my review? I shortened it a lot, and I didn't really get into details. Do you guys prefer short & sweet, long & detailed (like The Iron King), or perhaps something in the middle? Let me know~
