Synopsis

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. 

For Meghan is the daughter of a mythical faery king…and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Don't miss the first book in Julie Kagawa's highly anticipated new series, TALON, AVAILABLE OCTOBER 28, 2014

Yet another YA novel that really starts with a great premise, then turns predictably into a love triangle. This is not the story for someone looking for a strong female protagonist, as much as the author tries. The lead character bumbles along in the first book of the series, which is understandable, but continues to rely on everyone else throughout the rest of the series, making you wish that there was more going on in her head than which boy to hook up with. Disappointing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I bought it thinking that it would be ok, I wasn't sure on what I wanted to read next, but I was immediately drawn in to this delightfully clever world and couldn't put it down. I'm very glad I read it and am not-so-patiently waiting for the next book in the series to be published.

Bought on a whim as it was cheap in an offer. I found it an enjoyable read. Engaging and gripping. Even though it is a young adult book, I feel it has appeal to adults of fantasy fiction. Worth a read in my opinion.

This book was a great read, I read it in one sitting. Trying to imagine what I would do if I was in her shoes was part of the fun. By the end of the book I was already ready to buy the next. I recomened this to anyone who wants a different kind of book to read.

I read many Fantasy novels and Julie Kagawa writes on the same level as Greats as Tolkien, Terry Brooks and Piers Anthony. When you read this one, you will want to read the rest of hers.

I really like this series. At first I felt that I had already read it. It was very familiar to another series I had read, but it quickly changed directions for me and I was sucked in. I couldn't put it down and had to read the whole series right away. Each book the story gets better.

I usually didn't go for YA fiction, but this one is an exception. I love how the author introduce 'different' kind of fey than most other fey stories. Although the end is hanging (I'm not fond of cliffhangers) but I guess it's worth it.

It was really good, once you start reading there is no way to put it down. You get involved very fast with the story and the love triangle is so romantic. It earned my expectations and more. Describing it in one word: AWESOME

One of my favourite fae series! Beautifully descriptive writing, lots of drama and just enough steam to keep you on the edge of your seat. Meghan is a strong young woman who takes control of her destiny and takes you and your emotions along for the ride.

This series is a unique twist to the whole faery YA paranormal genre. It's an easy read for both teen and adult readers. One little warning : you'll get sucked into this series (and the spinoff series).

I love this book! Julie Kagawa puts a really unique spin on faerie lore that made me fall in love with her imagination. Her writing brings the characters so much to life that I find myself thinking about them as if they're a real part of my life. I can't get enough of this series!

It was really good how the author came up with a completely different type of fey that are made of something the original fey would get badly hurt or die if they touched it. It was a really good twist and i cant wait to read the final book (iron traitor) and see how it all ends.
