Since I am in Kansas City for two weeks.... I have had ample reading time on the plane, and at night.
My sister in law Tiffany texted me a few weeks ago telling me about a few new series of books that are Young Adult -- and were SOOOOO good! So, I went about my business requesting them from the library, and just last night I finished the series so far of the Iron King. I'm not normally into reading fantasy books. In fact, I believe this might be my first fantasy book I've ever read. I don't consider Twilight fantasy, but maybe it should be???
Written by Julie Kagawa ... it's a fantasy/faery type of book. Meaghan Chase is about to turn 16 years old, and all of a sudden she's starting to "see" weird things ... creatures! Turns out, her biological father is a King of the Summer Faery -- so she's part faery and part human.
I realize I'm butchering this little book report up BIG time (I never said I was good writing book reports .... I just like to read them and tell you to read them yourself if I think it's good). So, do me a favor. Go to the library or book store and find The Iron King by Julie Kagawa ..... read it. If you like it, read The Iron Daughter. AND if you like that one, read The Iron Queen.
Yes, there is a love interest with the main character. I have to say I'm 100% Team Ash. You'll know what I mean by the time you read book 3. Can't wait for book 4 to come out!!
Here is a brief summary I have taken from Julie Kagawa's site:
