Review: Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I'm always a fan of faerie books, so Iron King was right up my alley. 

The story line is pretty good. On her 16th birthday, Meghan Chase discovers she is not only half human, half fae, but that her father is famous, dangerous, and royalty. He is King Oberon, and that makes Meghan a fae princess. She travels with her best friend Puck to the Nevernever (the faerie world) to save her little brother, Ethan, who was kidnapped and replaced by a changeling.

Along the way Meghan stumbles through Fae life making deadly mistakes, interesting friends, and many enemies. One of those enemies is Ash, the prince of her father's rival court. Meghan and Ash soon fall in love though it's a death sentence for both of them.

I enjoyed the Iron King, but I was a little put off by the graphic imagery in some parts. It's not that bad and there is little to no swearing. I just don't enjoy scenes with people being in so much pain it brings "ecstasy" and so forth.
