Meghan begins this second book in The Iron Fey trilogy imprisoned by the Winter faery Queen, and deserted by Ash, the Winter Faery prince she thought loved her. Worse, war is about to break out between the Summer and Winter Court, and there seems to be nothing Meghan can do to stop it. No one will believe that the Iron Fey exist, and her magical powers have been cut off.
Once again, the world-building in this series is astounding. The action is intense and neverending. Every character--even those with bit parts--is vividly realized and simply springs off the page. And best of all, the romance is emotionally intense. Ash is a strong, ethical and very sexy romantic hero.
Julie Kagawa is an outstanding writer, and I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys excellent urban fantasy with a really good romance subplot.
