Dusty Reads (7)

My pick this week:
The Iron King
(Iron Fey, #1)
Julie Kagawa
Released February 1st, 2010
by Harlequin Teen
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.

Since the Iron Knight - book 4 in the series - has just come out, I figured it was time to admit that although I have the first three books on my home shelf, I haven't picked it up yet. I didn't even know it was so popular until a month ago when I started seeing everyone talking about the new release. I had bought this on Kijiji (Canadian's Craigslist) because it was cheap and it looked promising. I'm glad I did, though because I definitely want to read them soon.

The Iron Fey series includes:
