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. - Good Reads

 In the end of The Iron King, Meghan, keeping her promise, followed Ash back to the Winter Court. Ash is acting like a total jerk and ignoring her, which leads Meghan into the depths of despair. It got a little bit too pitiful for me in this section of the book. But it did come out for the better and I definitely was feeling the Meghan and Ash relationship by the end of the book. 

There was a love triangle in this book that I was a little disappointed about. I knew from the get go that it was set up for this, but it still made me feel bad for Puck. Especially because Meghan led him too much. But there is a lot more Puck in this book and more dimension to his character.

I loved learning more about the Winter Court in this book and meeting the new characters. The secondary characters really, really, really make this series pop. I just love Grimalkin! And Ironhorse was a surprising loyal addition who I grew attached to throughout the book. I loved the CAPS! Hah!

Overall it was a very good book. Kagawa really upped herself from the The Iron King.
