Meet Meghan. A normal girl who lost her daddy when she was 6. Really, he just disappeared when she went to get ice cream and he was never heard from again. After that catastrophe her mother moved her to the outskirts of a little town in the middle of nowhere and remarried. Then her best friend in all the world, Robbie, starts getting very protective of her when she starts noticing things that just couldn't really be there....could they??
She finds out real quick that the man she thought of as her daddy was NOT her dad. Turns out she's the daughter of a faery king and she's being used. By everyone, except her best friend. After her little brother is kidnapped and taken to the Nevernever (by a type of evil no other fae could face, other than herself) she is determined to get him back. Even if her best friend wasn't supposed to allow her to go there (good thing he doesn't mind a bit of mischief).
Finally finding their way into the Nevernever, she sets out on an adventure she never thought she'd have. And she'll find out what it feels like to love a winter prince, who may just be her death.
The second book in the series is called, "The Iron Daughter" and is also very good. This is a great story to get lost in!! The 3rd book, "The Iron Queen", is due to be released in February 2011. Cannot wait!
