The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
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.
