The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King:
Some thing 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.

Julie Kagawa has added a unique tale to the realm of the fey. Her Iron Fey are able to withstand, and flourish at the touch of iron, and it is slowly killing the Nevernever realm of the fey. With the advancement in technology the Iron Fey were born from the imaginations of humans. We are taken on a journey through the Nevernever to rescue Meghan's younger brother, Ethan, who was kidnapped and replaced with a changeling, Meghan discovers that her best friend, Robbie Goodfell, is none other than Robin Goodfellow or (better known as) Puck. Puck leads Meghan into the faerie realm where they encounter many friends and foes as their adventure begins. Meghan discovers that her biological father is none other than the Summer King ruler of the Seelie Courts. Along the way they meet Ash, prince if the Unseelie Courts and son of Mag, the Winter Queen. Meghan, Puck and Ash join forces in the search and rescue of Ethan, each page is filled with adventure and peril for the trio as they traverse the Nevernever, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Meghan's story and am looking forward to what happens next in The Iron Daughter.
