The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

From Goodeads: 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—ironbound 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 stuck 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.

I'd forgotten how much I had enjoyed The Iron King, but quickly remembered how much I love this series as soon as I started reading this.

The story begins with Meghan paying her end of the bargain she made with Ash in The Iron King - finding herself a 'voluntary' prisoner to the Winter Queen. Feeling deserted by Ash, who has grown seemingly indifferent to her now, she finds herself in the middle of a war between Summer and Winter - but she knows the real danger is from the Iron fey...

I seriously love Meghan! She's strong, determined, kind - I just really like her. I also really, really enjoy her relationship with Ash. He really tries to push her away in this - and you understand why - but there is just something about those two! And well, he is rather gorgeous! *swoons* Plus I love how much you can see that he does care for Meghan - even if he doesn't want to.

I also adore Puck! How could you not? And I'm glad his feelings get explored in this too. And Grimalkin is still on fine form! 

As for the ending - I loved it! And yes, I picked up The Iron Queen straight away!
