3.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure July 12 2010
By J. Scully TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iron Fey, Book One May 8 2010
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding out you're a fairy... July 29 2010
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Q: Book Addict Aug. 25 2010
By Mrs. Q: Book Addict TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Title: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 363
Source: Personal Copy
Category: Young Adult
Rating: 5/5

Synopsis:

Meghan Chase has always felt like an outsider, a nobody. Her best friend Robbie is her one and only friend. High School seems unbearable, and the only thing Meghan is looking forward to is obtaining her drivers license. Her step-father scorns technology, and her family has little money. Meghan feels almost invisible on a daily basis, even in her own home. Her High School crush teases and taunts her. These problems only scratch the surface. Meghan's life may seems boring, simple, and non eventful but her world is literally about to change. Her four-year-old step-brother has gone missing. A horrible, misbehaved changeling has taken the form of Ethan. Only Meghan is able to see this is not her true brother. She should have listened to Ethan when he was afraid of the monsters in his closet. Meghan has just turned sixteen, and she thinks she going crazy. Robbie also has a secret, he is not who he seems. Before she knows it Meghan enters the faery world. Dangerous, manipulative creatures are lurking every where. When Robbie is hunted by a dark prince, Meghan is forced to brave this nightmarish world by herself. She makes a deal with a talking cat named Grimalkin who promises to help her find Robbie. Meghan soon finds out she is the daughter to King Oberon, and despised by his Queen. As much as she wants to find her brother, no one seems to be interested in helping her. Meghan must escape the Seelie court and find her brother in Nevernever land. Along the way, she has Ash, the Winter Prince and Grimalkin. Both have their reasons for helping her, both seeking their own reward.
