Review: The Iron King

I am 38 years old and I like this book.

The synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

This story drew me in. Meghan is a likeable teenager and sort of an outside, much like I was. Her good friend, Robbie,  is very protective but who doesn’t want a protective good friend?

The story picks up when strange things start to happen around the house and at school. Meghan soon discovers that she is the daughter of the king of the Seelie Court of faeries.

The journey begins and I have been sucked in for the ride. The friends of Meghan include some great characters, who are taken from stories like The Midsummer’s Night Dream and Alice in Wonderland.

My favorite has to be Grimilkin, a cait sidthe. Puck, Meghan’s friend and Ash, the wickedly handsome Ice Prince round out the group.

This book will take you to Neverneverland when you read it. You will want to continue with the next book, The Iron Daughter, after you finish.

I have already requested The Iron Daughter from the library.

This gets my approval.
