Summary from Goodreads:
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—ironbound 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 stuck 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.
Review By Alaiel Kreuz:
After a whole night reading the book (with my fiancé sleeping in our bed and my doggy and I in the couch) all I can say is: AWESOME! Seriously, I wish I could create a new world for this book like Barney in HIMYM created "possimpible", hahahaha. Don't pay me to much attention, I'm sleepy. But yeah, I'm sure you want me talk about the book so here we go:
At the end of the first book we saw Meghan saying good-bye to her family to go fulfill her promise to Ash: she is now in Winter Court and is Queen Mab's prisoner...
Somehow she expected that by doing this she was going to see Ash more but turns out that they see each other only a few times and Ash is always cold and distant.
Trying to forget Ash' behaviour she speaks with Queen Mab about the Iron Fey but it doesn't work, the Queen does not believe a word she says and when the Scepter of the Seasons is stolen the Queen vibrates with anger.
And so the war between Summer and Winter Courts begin. Now is up to Meghan and her friends to recover the Scepter of the Seasons, if not the war with not only affect their world but the human world as well...
The writing, once again, is wonderful. Julie, I believe, is a master creating and showing us the world she created. The way I could feel Meghan's difficult times trying to understand her feelings for Ash were touching and the way I laughed with Puck and Grimalkin have not price.
Nothing more to say, I'm going to read "The Iron Queen" today. If by any chance you don't have the books yet please, I'm begging you here, buy them now!
