Book Review: The Iron Daughter, by Julie Kawaga

The Iron Daughter
Julie Kawaga

Picking up a sequel to a book is like putting on favorite, fuzzy slippers; or better yet, it's like seeing old friends after a long absence. They're comfy, you know them well, and they give your the warm fuzzies. Reading the Iron Daughter gave me that same feeling.

Meghan, Ash and Puck are all back, though the situations have changed. Meghan and Ash are at odds, and Puck and Meghan get closer than ever.

Being that I'm Team Ash, I kinda missed him for the chunk of the book that he was MIA, but I love how he comes back!

We meet new characters, all richly drawn and developed. New twists are revealed, and our characters stayed true to their roles from the first book. There's betrayal, there's love, there's action, and there are wicked fey all over the place.

The book starts with action and maintains its momentum throughout. This is a very good sequel to a very good first book.
