The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Summary (From Goodreads)
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
This book turned out much better than I thought it would be. I had originally gotten the book just so I could have a quick read before I had a chance to get anything else, but I ended up not wanting to put it down.
Julie Kagawa did a very good job at putting a modern twist on the classic faery stories and leaves you gasping for more the entire time. At least, that's what happened to me.
I really recommend adding this book to your to-read list, along with every other book Ms. Kagawa has written, because I can tell you for sure that the others are on mine.
Recommended for: Ages 13+
