The book stretched a bit longer than I would have liked, but it was fun to read regardless! I really felt the suspense, action, and adventure pulse through the pages as if it was a movie! Again, I would recommend this whole series to those who have (or haven't, but want to) read A Midsummer's Night Dream by William Shakespeare. Faeries just seem more interesting when they are bloodthirsty and vicious, no? My favourite character would be Grimalkin, because "he is a cat." Does his name have anything to do with the reference of Graymalkin? In Macbeth? Perhaps. 4/5

The second book of the series and just as good as the first one 'The Iron King'.

Was really good. I love how it isn't a cliched faery book. Looking forward to reading the Iron Queen.

I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first one. The romance and love triangle really picks up here. There was some teenage angst a little but the story picks up a little after. I like how Meghan starts to realize how she needs to start to fit in Faeryland and learn a few tricks. If you liked the first book you'll like this one, too.

This is the second book in the series that started with The Iron King. As it begins, Meghan is being held prisoner at the court of the Unseelie as a result of her promise to Ash. But Ash seems to be distancing her, and she isn't sure what to do about it. When the transfer of the scepter of the seasons happens from Summer to Winter, Meghan is hopeful for a change, but instead the scepter is stolen. The Summer faeries are blamed, but Meghan knows it was the iron fey that is responsible.
With her fey powers sealed, Meghan is helpless to join the fight to recover the scepter, or is she? With the help of her friends, and others she didn't expect to assist her, Meghan finds she has new powers she didn't suspect, and they may make the difference in defeating the iron fey in this battle.
Her love for Ash is also tested here, as is her friendship with Puck.
A good read, that definitely moves the story along.
