About the author:
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.
Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon puppy.
What goodreads says:
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.
My love for this series gets bigger and bigger every day :) I have to say I'm so glad it was chosen as BNC of the month last November otherwise I might of not read it until... well I don't know although maybe it wouldn't of taken my that long... but with all the new books coming out.
Okay so of to the book. What can I say the Winter Court is awsome in it's evilness :) Meghan is captured in the Winter Court with no powers and completly alone, as her Winter Prince Ash, doesn't seem to like her anymore... (bad Ash ^^)
Meghan tries to warn Queen Mab about the Iron Fey but she doesn't listen to her (not surprising really Queen Mab doesn't really listen to anyone) But when the Scepter of the Seasons is stolen it's up to Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grim to rescue it, with the help of other friends on the way. I have to admit I cried alot and the ending? Well the ending was perfect but heartbreaking.
I've also finished The Iron Queen and Summer's Crossing so I'll post a review in a mo'.
I give it 5 stars.
