The Iron King

6644117Goodreads Synopsis:    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.

My Thoughts:

-    This was better than I expected. I was expecting a sort of fantasy, but instead I got a fun paranormal. 

-    The story is like a combination of Labyrinth, Paranomalcy, Eyes Like Stars, and Alice in Wonderland.

-    I guess it would help make the story more awesome if you are familiar with A Midsummer's Night Dream. I am not, but I still understood it and enjoyed it.

-    I liked the characters a lot. I think Meghan was a typical teenage girl. She was a bit whiny at times, but I liked her overall. Ash and Puck were fun characters. Neither stole my heart, but they were fun. My favorite was Grim. I love that cat!

-    I won't say who or how, but that was not a very believable death. Of course they weren't dead!

-    I really liked the Nevernever. I thought the author did awesome creating this paranormal world. It sounds beautiful.

-    I liked how everything resolved, but I'm eager for more!
