Why I read it; Second in a series, Netgalley review book
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, iron-bound 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 alone 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.
This book took me longer to read than I wanted and not because the story wasn't great, life and kids and surgeries just slowed down my reading. I really liked the second book in this series, it was interesting and the story kept moving and never got dull. There was a lot of detail without getting boring and I was able to get a clear picture in my head of the story and the characters. The whole teenage girl finds out she isn't all human in love with two guys who are so in love with her they would die to save her story line is a little over done for me but everything else about these books is creative keeping you guessing and hoping to the very last page. This is a series that I am excited to keep reading and I look forward to reading other things written by Julie Kagawa.
