Book of the Week #17: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Title: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publication Date: January 2011
When I Read It: June 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads.com: 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.
Why I Loved It: Because it's about faeries, and the writing is awesome. Also, the characters and setting are so well written, it's easy to get lost in the world of the Nevernever.
My Review: http://cheezyfeetbooks.blogspot.com/2010/07/iron-king-julie-kagawa.html
Why It's Book of the Week: Because, as everybody probably already knows, The Iron Queen, the last book in the series, came out on Tuesday, so I think everyone who hasn't read the series should!
