So, this is a tough one for me... I'm going to go with an easy way out I think. Erica from The Book Cellar was really pushing me to read The Iron King this summer - a book I would have read eventually, but I think her badgering really made me read it asap.
I really enjoyed it and was glad I finally got around to reading it. I'm sort of a moody reader so I don't always have a plan to what I read and I'm definitely thankful Erica kicked me in the butt and made me pick up this awesome book.
Meghan Chase has never fit in at her small-town high school, and now, on the eve of her 16th birthday, she discovers why. When her half brother is kidnapped, Meghan is drawn into a fantastical world she never imagined--the world of Faery, where anything you see may try to eat you, and Meghan is the daughter of the summer faery king. Now she will journey into the depths of Faery to face an unknown enemy . . . and beg the help of a winter prince who might as soon kill her as let her touch his icy heart. The Iron King is the first book in the Iron Fey series.
