Iron King by: Julie Kagawa

Publication Date: February 2010

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

My thoughts: This was quite thrilling  At times I felt i couldn't breath. This poor girl has had it rough. Losing her father with no explanation, her mother remarrying and the guy barely pays her any mind. 
And it only gets worse as it goes along. But she saved the day. Of course she didn't do it alone and had the help of several key characters   But facing death and everything was worth it just to save her little brother and to begin unraveling her past and her future. 
There is a love triangle kinda hiding in the shadows of this and who she goes with will be key I think. 

My rating: 5 stars
