Format: Paperback
Ever since her father disappeared when she was a young girl, Meghan Chase has felt like an outcast and a misfit. Then as her 16th birthday approaches, weird things begin to happen. Her four year-old brother Ethan seems to be possessed, and Robbie, Meghan's best friend since childhood seems to know more than he's letting on. Meghan is left reeling when Robbie reveals a strange and deadly new world that exists alongside our own. In order to save her brother, Meghan embarks on a perilous journey filled with creatures and beings she thought only existed in fairy tales.

The Iron King is a high-stakes adventure, filled with a variety of interesting characters. Meghan is a likable protagonist, who grows over the course of the novel, and has the potential to become a truly fascinating and powerful heroine as the series continues. The supporting characters are well-developed and highly entertaining, and even though they were plucked from other stories (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Alice in Wonderland) felt unique. I must admit to liking the supporting characters even more than the main character! The author does a wonderful job of describing the faery world in magnificent detail, but I did find a few situations or plot points were lacking in explanation, and some scenes that should have been emotional did not manage to elicit the expected emotion. Despite these small issues, the story was interesting and fast-paced with plenty of surprises along the way.

The Iron King was a captivating and entertaining story, and I can't wait to read more of Meghan's adventures in the next installment in the Iron Fey Series.

Format: Paperback
At the age of six Meghan's father disappeared while they were at the park. He was never found. Her mother moved them to a small, out-of-the-way town and remarried. Now Meghan Chase has a four-year-old half brother, Ethan, whom she adores. Other than with her best friend, Robin Goodfell, Meghan has always felt different than everyone else. On the day before her sixteenth birthday, which no one but Ethan and Robin seem to remember, Meghan begins paying more attention to what is around her. If only her humiliation at school could be simply a hallucination, like the gremlin she saw in class.

When a dark and handsome stranger begins watching her, Robin becomes very protective. Robin Goodfell is really Robin Goodfellow, also known as Puck. Meghan believes it all a prank until Puck takes her into Nevernever, the land of the Fae, and escorts her to King Oberon, her biological father. Puck had been sent to the mortal world and tasked with protecting the king's daughter. Meghan wants only to rescue her brother and go back home. Ethan had been kidnapped by a new breed of faery. To save Ethan, Meghan must convince Puck to help her escape her father, avoid being killed by Queen Titania and her minions, deal with an enemy prince named Ash - who's attitude toward her keeps running hot and cold - and find out where her brother is.

Can Meghan rescue her brother? Can she keep Puck and Ash from literally killing each other? Does she dare give her heart to a prince who might enjoy seeing her dead? And most of all, if Meghan manages to survive through the overwhelming obstacles before her, will her life ever be the same again?

**** FOUR STARS! Action, drama, suspense, and magic all blend together in order to serve a delicious banquet for readers to consume and enjoy.

Bought this based on the excellent reviews it was getting in industry mags, and deeply regret it.

I hate to stop a book before I'm finished it, but this one I did. First I started skimming. Then I got to the major battle. Then I tossed the book across the room because I couldn't believe how lame it was.

Meghan Chase's father disappeared when she was young. Now she's 16, and she's just discovered that her best friend is Puck, and she's part fairy. He's forbidden to bring her into fairyland, but when her younger brother is kidnapped by the fey, she twists his rubber arm and he does it anyhow. Then a never-ending series of episodic adventures begins, all of which follow this pattern: Meghan does something she's been warned not to, Meghan gets chased by something, Meghan gets saved by something else. Over and over and OVER. Plus there's a tortured fairy prince who maybe wants to kill her, but he's so cute!

That's where I had to start skimming. Based on my reading of the final battle, it only went downhill from there.

For a really good YA fairy tale, try any or all of O.R. Melling's fantastic books.

A new take on an old tale. Fae stories are cluttering my bookshelves and I love them all, but Julie Kagawa blew me away with this one. I loved the imagination and ingenuity throughout this book. The characters are fun and had me laughing throughout. The love triangle is brewing for the next book and I already have my side. A great book on so many levels.

What can I say about Iron King?? WOW- I am SO glad I picked up this book!!! LOVED IT!
I think I had this book sitting on my shelf for almost a year now, not really wanting to read it. I'm not really into the fairy-books much but boy, am I glad I read it.

The story is about Meghan Chase a girl seemingly very normal at first glance, but going through the story Meghan ends up discovering her connection to the fey world. Her little brother Ethan, got kidnapped and taken into the fey world and Meghan is ready to do anything to get him back. When I was reading the parts with Ethan my heart sank at the thought of that cute little kid alone with vicious faeries. I had to glance at the last page(which I don't do anymore... too many spoilers) just to see if Ethan got back safely, or else I would be too preoccupied with his state rather than focusing on the story.

The story was fast paced, things happened... a lot! I believe Meghan got herself almost killed, a bunch of times throughout the book, which gave you nice action scenes and you got to see Ash in a few of them!!
By the way...I'm team ASH..(fanning herself) But you also got to see a lot of the fey, bad ones & good ones, and different kind of creatures that live in the Nevernever(fey world).

Meghan doesn't only have to worry about her brother but herself too, since she got to Nevernever pretty much everyone wants her. She has to stay alive and focus on finding Ethan without getting distracted from Ash...

Oh, Ash... I always liked seemingly cold characters that warm up to the potential love interest but Ash is pure ice...which I love!! He is the son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie court and freeking produces ice from his hands!!!!
