Summary ( 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:
The beginning of the book starts off where the last one left off basically, Meghan in the Winter Court. However, in the beginning of the novel she isn’t that strong heroine I grew to love. Oh no she’s a whiner baby. She spends most of her time in the Winter Court complaining about how Ash is ignoring her. That drove me CRAZY. If she loves him she should have LISTENED to him when he told her that he was going to have to do that while they were in his neck of the Nevernever because it wasn’t safe for her there if he showed his true feelings. But did she listen to the man she loves? Of course not, so she spends a majority of the beginning complaining about everything. When she does leave the Winter Court to go on the next adventure she becomes her old awesome self and the book starts to become as unputdownable as the last one. All my favorite characters are back including Puck, Grim and Ironhorse and with some new enemies and some new friends the middle and end are action packed. Will I tell you about that action? No, because I’m afraid I’ll spoil it. Rest assured though that if you like The Iron King and can make it though the whiny beginning this will not disappoint!
