{Bookish Review} The Iron King (Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa

(The Iron Fey #1)
Genre: YA Fantasy/Romance

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.

Help! I'm hooked onto this series again.

I first read this book in 2012. This is a book on how a mortal girl, Meghan Chase, travelled into the Faery realm against all odds to save her little half-brother Ethan from the clutches of the Fae. Of course she had help of 2 boys from opposing Courts in Faery, Puck from the Summer Court and Prince Ash from the Winter Court and a witty cat, Grimalkin. 

Through this treacherous journey, Meghan  learnt the truth about her own heritage, the secret behind her closest friend in the mortal world and the impending danger that was approaching them all in the land of Fae. What is she going to do to save her little brother? What are the sacrifices to be made?

I simply enjoyed the characters' interaction, which can be really funny at times with a prankster around an icy prince. The author is really good at pulling me into the story, making me feel what Meghan was feeling and how anxious I was to see her succeed in the trials. I'm really glad I picked up the series again. Off to the next book!

My rating: 5🌟
