Summary: 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.
Another review that is too long overdue – to the point where I read Winter’s Passage after I read this and its review has been up since the end of November. Eugh. I just warn you that this might be a horrible review for the pure fact that it’s been almost 2 months since reading this novel.
I really enjoyed reading this book to the point where I can’t wait to read The Iron Queen ASAP – which luckily I can courtesy of netGalley! This book in the series had more adventure and action in my opinion, and it just seemed to build more on the amazing debut novel of Julie Kagawa.
I liked how Meghan was built up more character-wise in this novel and how she has an even bigger inner conflict between Ash and Puck – I’m still on the fence with this one.
Ugh. See, this is why I need to stop waiting to write reviews. I feel horrible that I can’t think of anything else to say. But I promise that the review for The Iron Queen will be much, much better. Stay tuned for that.
So, for now, I’m giving this an 8/10. It was a good book in a great series. Oh, and the cover is gorgeous!
