Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: February 1st 2010
Author Website
Available: Amazon|Barnes and Noble
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
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.

My Take:

I couldn't help but admire the cover while reading this book. I first heard through Twitter about this book a few months ago the buzz drew me in. Meagan in the beginning felt like the character that would end up changing more by the end of the book. I couldn't help but feel some connection towards the males, on one hand you have Puck who is the best friend, the one who is always there even when you least expect it. On another hand you have a prince named Ash who at first meeting you don't know who would want him but like an onion Ash has many layers and he can change your mind and be the caring type but the next second he is back to his masked self. I understand it took me awhile to get into the story because it felt like some information was missing. By the end of the story I felt this need that I needed to finish the whole story. So far
there are 3 books already out and the 4th is coming out soon, can't wait to see more of Ash, Meagan, and Puck because with these three the world could end up ending and still they would find a way around it. Could you tell which mystery guy I like in this one yet or maybe you'll find out later....

5/5 Stars
