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:
My name is Meghan Chase.I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.
My opinion:
Is crying in a dark corner while writing this review. Why?? Julie just broke my heart!!! The ending nooo.... okay breath, breath. Okay now for the review.
In the begining we see Ash and Meghan going to the human realm in order to live a normal human life (I can just imagine Ash, actually wait no I can't...) but... they are interrupted just as they arrive by the False Iron King trying to kidnap Meghan in order to obtain her power.
Meghan is growing up (soo proud of her :)) she's brave and loyal and I have to say she can kick ass.
I can't believe that after all they've been through the Fey would have the guts of asking from them yet another sacrifice, but there you are, that's Fey for you....
I've loved Ash from the begining (dreamy eyes) and Puck grew on my slowly but shurely, and now I can't decide which is my favorite, so I'll keep both of them^^
I can't wait to read Iron Knight!!!!
I give it 5 stars.
