YA Recs: The Iron King

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Summary:

When Meghan Chase’s brother is kidnapped, she must venture into the world of the fey. She soon discovers she is the daughter of the legendary Oberon and a pawn in the war between rival faery factions.

Why I liked it:

I was a little wary of this book when I started it. I’m still a little burnt out on paranormal love triangles and portal fantasies have never really been my thing. However, Julie Kagawa has a crisp writing style that drew me in instantly. This book is basically A Midsummer Night’s Dream meets Labyrinth. I appreciated Meghan’s evolution as a character. A lot of the other characters are very powerful, so it would be easy for her to take a back seat to them. I may add that after book one, I legitimately don’t know who I’m rooting for in this love triangle (besides Meghan. I always root for her). I’m excited to pick up the next book and keep reading.
