Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. 

Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

I'm not sure if I liked it as much as the first one. However, this sequel in The Iron Fey series is full of adventure and a little romance.

Perhaps I really anticipated reading the next book because I really loved the first one. In this book, Megan was already trapped in Tir Na Nog and missed Ash terribly. Of course she had to keep the other side of their bargain. Ever since they arrived there, she hadn't seen Ash anymore until she was summoned by the Winter queen. There were lots of revelations here. The other two princes of the Winter's side were also introduced - Sage and Rowan. Sage's character, although short-lived, was described as awesome as Ash. Rowan was a bad ass, you'll know why. I thought Grim was already out of the picture. I liked his character and dialogues. It made me happy when he was included again. I didn't expect Ironhorse to be included in their action-packed adventure.

The romance part, which reminded me of Twilight (~coughs here~), was the spice of the story. I really hate Megan for taking Puck for granted. Duh! Puck, you don't deserve someone like her. Megan was selfish, sometimes idiot and didn't seem to give importance to Puck's feelings for her. She said she loved him but of course that was only as a friend. Ash was the love of her life. Fine.

I didn't quite understand how she became the iron daughter. It was not given that much emphasis but I thought it was just an introduction for the story for the next book which is The Iron Queen.

My favorite part was the ending! Wow! That's just awesome. The idea of Megan and Ash together at last is adorable. I got so excited and I couldn't wait for the next book.
