The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter

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, iron-bound 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 alone 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.

First and foremost, what another wonderful cover for this one! I got this on my Kindle so I couldn't actually SEE the cover but I just admired the pretty picture. Anyways, moving on.

This second installment is better than the first. I got a bit annoyed because there was too much Ash, too little Puck (Team Puck) and the end...THE END! What a cliffhanger, my gosh. I can't wait to read the third book.

Vague review but basically, a good sequel. The only thing that bothered me was Meghan at some parts. She was a bit whiny and whatnot but I got over it (I just wish SHE would).

In one sentence:
"A stunning sequel to a wonderful series."

I HAVE TO START THIS SERIES! It's not often that the second book is better than the first, so I'm glad to hear it!
