Review - The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey #2)


Description 

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.







My Thoughts/Review


This books takes place after Meghan is in the Unseelie Court. It does go through her mind and shows Ash taking her there and what happened when she first arrived. Her time spent in The Winter Court is awful, Ash pretending he doesn't love her and then all hell breaks loose the night the Scepter of Seasons is stolen by the Iron Fey. A Winter Prince turns traitor and Ash has to help Meghan escape. Puck comes back! I am totally team Ash but Puck is so funny and awesome all in his own right. Meghan is left to find the scepter as a war breaks out between summer and winter. As Meb thinks summer stole it. Meghan and Puck along with Ironhorse who has vowed to help her create a plan to get it back. Ash goes his own way, telling Meghan that they simply can't be together. Their courts won't allow it.

Things kept getting in the way of their plan, Ash is turned into a puppet by the false Iron King and Meghan has to save him with an iron power. Do they ever get the Scepter of Seasons back? Does Ash and Megan get to be together? Does our heroes get to stop the war? You're going to have to read this book to find out.

I love The Iron King, it was awesome, but to me, this book was so much better. More action, more romance and the steaks are higher because not just Ethan is in trouble, but all of the Nevernever. Ash is just perfectly Ash and I love him in this book. The writing is flawless as what I've come to expect from this author and it's so easy to follow.

I know a lot of people don't like reading about fey or fairies very much but this series is just too good not to read. Give it a chance and I know you'll love it... or at least love Ash or Puck, or both. Both is good.





Favorite Quotes


1) “You're kind of blind, you know?" Puck whispered, smiling to soften his words. "I wouldn't defy Oberon for just anyone. But, for you..." He leaned forward, touching his forehead to mine. "I'd come back from the dead for you.”


2) “She pulled up Ash's shirt, revealing a layer of gauze that was just beginning to seep blood onto the mattress. "At least the bandaging was done properly," she mused. "Very nice, clean work. Your handiwork, I presume, Goodfellow?"
"Which one?"
"The bandage, Robin."
"Yeah, that was mine, too.”


3) “Why am I so drawn to you?" He muttered, almost to himself. "Why is it so hard to let go? I thought... at first... it was Ariella, that you remind me of so much. But it's not." Though he didn't smile, his eyes lightened a shade. "You're far more stubborn than she ever was."
I sniffed. "That's like the pot calling the kettle black," I whispered, and a faint, tiny grin finally crossed his face, before his expression clouded and he lowered his head, touching his forehead to mine. "What do you want of me, Meghan?" he asked, a low thread of anguish flickering below the surface.

Tears blurred my vision, all the fear and heartache of the past few days rising to the surface. "Just you," I whispered. "I just want you."

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda
