Book Beginnings Friday: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa



"Why should I trust you?" I snarled at Ash. I was completely aware that I was being an idiot, that we needed to get out of there before anyone saw us, but it was like I'd eaten spill-your-guts, and words just kept pouring out.

-The Iron Daughter (Prologue) by Julie Kagawa (August 1st- Harlequin Teen)

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, iron-bound 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 alone 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.

Ohmy. I should not have read that - I don't know if it spoils anything as I haven't read The Iron King yet. I hope not!
