363 pages
Published February 1st 2010 by Harlequin Teen



Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something 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.

My Thoughts

It's been awhile since I've posted and since then I've read all of the Percy Jackson books and I've ultimately obsessed with it so excuse my somewhat detachment in this post. :3

This was another one of those books that I've been looking for, for a while. Surprise, surprise. I've heard a lot about it and was kinda weary when I began reading it and boy did it live up to my expectations. 

Megan Chase is just your average girl who feels just a little out of place. With Her best friend Robbie, a fairy in disguise, right by her side. What she doesn't know is that her father is actually the fairy king Oberon and to save her missing brother she must visit the Fairy World and find the Iron King. Although things don't go as smoothly as planned. She risks death, loss, and even falling in love.

The entire plot was awesome and the characters were so likable. Not to mention the whole Robbie vs Ash thing going on. That was hilarious. x3 Is there anything better than two hot guys fighting over you?  The world of fairy's was just as awesomely created. Everything was really oddly placed and surreal when you read it that you couldn't help but want to go there. To put it lay man's terms, it was awesome.

Cover/Title: It's really pretty and the colors are really eye catching. It's just one of those things that can carry a series.
