Description of the Book:

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.

Pre-Read: I am reading it for a challenge lets see if i like it

While Reading: 

  • Grimalkin reminds me of the Cheshire cat from Alice and Wonderland
  • I like Puck I think he would make and awesome love interest but ash is cool too
  • Yay I love Mab
  • I don’t really like Queen Tatiana
  • Ahh a Kiss 🙂
  • NO ASH WHY?!?!?!
  • Awe Pack Rats Rock

Overall Thoughts: This is an amazing story. I’ve never really been into fairy stories. The moment i started reading I wanted to know what would happen next. This is a wonderfully written story that makes me want to believe in fey and have the eyes of a child because lets face it kids minds and hearts are open to more things they can’t see. That I think is what drew me deeper into this book. That and the fact that there is this beautiful world that the main character, Meghan, can’t even believe in Julia Kagawa is great. I love her anime references. I love the setting of the story. I loved that slowly Meghan learns to believe in things she never believed in before. I think everyone should read The Iron Kind simply because it rocks and i think that it will awake your inner child’s imagination. I Loved it and cant wait to find out what happens next.
