It's difficult to find a sequel that is as good or better than the first book, but Julie Kagawa has achieve it.
As stated by the synopsis, we find Meghan, trapped in the Kingdom of the Fairies Winter. In the first book she didn't attract me much, but in this book she is much more clever and crafty, and definitely has matured. I felt much more comfortable reading her.
In my opinion, the main theme in this book are Meghan's feelings toward Ash and vice versa. Both are from different courts (summer and winter) and can not be together. It is very painful is to read the actions took by Ash, and Meghan suffering. Definitely broke my heart, and I think the author did an excellent job describing the feelings between them.
The "war" between Ash and Puck was excellent. Before, Puck did not have a chance with Meghan, but now everything has changed. While reading the first book I was quite sure that Ash was my favorite, but this book played with feeling so much that at one point I preferred Puck (yes, I know, what was I thinking? But let me tell you, he is hot!). Deciding between two boys is difficult, especially when you think you're so in love and suddenly have feelings for another.
I love the way the author describes the Fairies. There are not those little magical creatures, beautiful and harmless, but rather powerful beings, naughty, and more dangerous than we think. Feelings are the human's weakness, and they do not mind using them for your benefit.
Definitely, I enjoyed this book much more than I imagined. And though the end left me a little off base (I didn't think something like that could happen), I liked it and left me wanting more. I have no idea what I can find in the next book, although I got some hints along the reading.
Simply I can't say anything bad about The Iron Daughter, so it deserves the highest score.show more
