Heir back stories journeys and amazing transformations were so credible that I found my heart aching for themAnd 待つ [Matsu] please don t even ask if there s romance There is unbelievable forbidden beautiful romance Again my hat s off to Julie who wrote the scene onage 99 so well that I had to text a few of my close bookwormish als just to vent What did the text say you ask It said He s breaking my heart but in a good wayA full five stars to Julie Kagawa s The Iron Daughter If you love action romance and watching how characters mature through heart wrenching trials you will love this story as much as I do 6122011 ETA Finished book three and this is one of the most frustrating YA series I ve read to date If you ve no tolerance for angsty bratty obtuse heroines steer right clear of itWhen I first read The Iron King I enjoyed it I found Ash intriguing Puck endearing Grim deliciously mysterious and the iron fey s origins refreshing I applauded Kagawa for conceptualizing a breed of fey borne of our obsession with technology I noticed obvious similarities between The Iron King and the movie Labyrinth but they didn t revent me from appreciating the story as a whole Time Brainwashing of the German Nation passed and friends read the book In their reviews I found references to other workslot Encounters with Rauschenberg: (A Lavishly Illustrated Lecture) points they d come across before in movies books and manga and I decided to lower my rating Nevertheless I still clung to the idea that these concerns fell into the FBS zone Surely the second book would heighten my opinion of the series and distinguish it from other YAIt surely did notThough I still enjoy the concept of the iron fey and the destruction their technology brings to a magic dependant realm The Iron Daughter was such a frustrating read that I may abandon the series My exasperation can be summed up in one word MeghanApparently our heroine is a fickle emotionally charged idiot Time and again her angsty cries defy all logic and she comes off as completely self absorbed Some examples Gladly Slight spoilers for the trajectory of the romance Ash explains he cannot show kindness towards her at Mab s court because any weakness will bereyed upon Yet when he Vögeln ist schön: Die Sexrevolte von 1968 und was von ihr bleibt publicly behaves in a boorish manner she decides that helayed her anguishes over his rejection and begs him to snatch her up in an embrace in front of all of Winter Waaah I thought I was special she cries Guess that warning went in one ear and out the other He shouldn t have wasted his breath Ash makes an attempt to rescue her from Mab s cruelty Meghan chooses this tense time sensitive occasion to have a hissy fit in a hall utting them at risk of getting caught This is made all the worse by her admission that she s being an idiot reventing me from ever having any sympathy for her again Meghan learns of numerous Social Media and Social Movements: The Transformation of Communication Patterns precautions Ashut into Principles of Isotope Geology place at great risk to himself to ensure her well being yet she still considers theossibility that he used glamour to manipulate her affections And the most confounding moment Her love for whom her soul was crying earlier on sits in a corner dying Instead of heeding Puck s repeated statement that the boy needs a healer Meghan takes the time to browse her CD collection and interrogate a bogey Zero sense of urgency But when they reach the healer she bullies the woman into helping because her darling man doesn t have much time left Where was this fearsome concern over the Ouroboros passage of time this heart twisting worry when she was uizzing the bogey under the bedAdd to this the all too common love triangle Not two minutes after going into a lengthy tirade about how she longs for Ash Meghan actually thinks Why not try with Puck Why is this convention so freuently used in YA Are teen emotions really this changeable in the writer s eyes In my experience it s the opposite When a teenager finds someone toine over crush on lust after they become absolutely fixated Especially when the object of fixation is set in a Romeo and Juliette us against the world light Moreover what do Puck and Ash see in her It s a common complaint across the UF genre too often writers create a heroine with multiple suitors only to fail to justify her allure to the reader Other than Meghan s odd owers and her unthinking willingness to tumble headlong into trouble there the reader Other than Meghan s odd owers and her unthinking willingness to tumble headlong into trouble there nothing that sets her apart The only character whose fascination I can understand is Grim for him it s like a front row seat at a train wreck or the Jerry Springer show Why shouldn t he amuse himselfAs an aside Puck and Ash s relationship is far deserving of discussion than Meghan s relationship with either As one character observes They re either best friends or darkest enemies I can t tell which Neither can we since they re the embodiment of the fine line between love and hate Forget Meghan these two boys are erfect fodder for some slashy fanfic making mental note to check the interwebs later Back to Grimalkin These characters would be dead many times over without his help He repeatedly ops in at the eleventh hour to save them icking up the slack in their oorly conceived lans Grim s disdain riddled comment that Ash Meghan and Puck are the hope of the NeverNever is all too valid With these illogical inept children next in line to take up the mantle Faery seems doomed regardlessGrim s timely interventions raise another roblem convenient Bauern In Mexiko: Zwischen Subsistenz Und Warenproduktion plotoints abound Kagawa also freuently halts the action so she can insert some new twist leading to scenes that feel forced and unnatural in context a day trip to a spa

getting Meghan stupid but still my only hopeEither way I have way too much gripes for many details of the story such as the war seemingly taking forever to start even though the march started right away to Oberon barely having any line in 2 whole books herisk getting meghan
S Basically A Prop For Meghan Atbasically a rop for Meghan at oint to side characters barely offering any value to the lot to Grimalkin always licking his aws like it s the only thing he can do and how he seems to be the only smart entity around and should have no reason to hang out with them as he lost favors than gained to how trods are so easily found to how they always meet the right erson for help to every single thing they do But I digressWill I continue I m not sure I want to for completion s sake but I didn t expect things to go from bad to soo much worse so fast The only thing that has it going for it is the identity of the false king who apparently no one cared to ask who it was so it s not secret because they are hiding it but because characters can t even ask Who is in charge this time I m beginning to really appreciate reading a series where all the books are out Aww look at me and these wise life decisions But anyway I uite enjoyed this one too The stakes weren t as Night of the Wendigo personal to my soul since book 1 was all about Meghan saving her little brother vs this one is just ya knowstopping the destruction of all the fey who are horrible anyway but apparently Meghan is much nicer than I ll ever be but I enjoy literally every breath that Puck and Ash take Oh and there s waves vaguely Meghan too I guess ButUCK AND ASH PLOTLike I said super high stakes since we re stopping all of faery land from destroying itself in a war But they re literally like a writhing mass of 5 year olds and they re BORED and have viciously wicked magic they want to use I can t even I love them so much I also love how murderously gorgeous everyone is and how amazing the glamours and magic and descriptions are They also go to the Lenansidhe s I wasn t sure if I was going to give it 4 or 5 stars because this book is very good but it does has one mayor flaw that I found to be annoyingMeghan and Ash When you think about it What does she really know about him besides that he s gorgeous and icy He tried to kill her several times now I don t know but that doesn t exactly scream boyfriend material to me Don t get me wrong I nearly creamed myself when I read he has a silver stud in his ear Add the billowing coat and I m sold But having those kind of feelings for somebody who is still a stranger smells a little too much like Bella Edward to me To give you an idea of how bad it was sometimes I m into romance and I go aaaawwww and OMG every time a guy in a book does something even remotely cutesweetromantic But there was a Mimi Malloy, At Last! part where I laughed out loud This was me being very inappropriate Like laughing at a funeral inappropriate I won t give away any details but there is a scene where Ash is standing there while Meghan and her entourage are running through a door When Meghan looks back the door is falling shut and she sees Ash standing there with I forgot the exact wording a trace of a single tear frozen to his cheek I think even Ironhorse would have hidden under the bed when he heard me laughing It was a little bit too much I know I m horrible It should have beenretty and amazing and all To me it was just cheesy over the top and hilarious But very serious face The situation was very very grim and I did feel sad about what was happening But that specific Twin Spica, Volume: 10 part Nah It didn t work for meHowever I like Ash a lot and I also liked the way this book ended even if it wasretty redictable yes I m a very complicated creatureI adore Ironhorse I liked him in The Iron King when he speaks his voice booms in my head I love it and now he s one of my favorite characters in The Iron Daughther Grim still takes the lead though.
