The Iron King - Julie Kagawa

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.

I know that many people love this trilogy, but I am not one of them. I just couldn't finish this book. I got about half way through, and then I just stopped. When I first began reading The Iron King, I was sucked in by this overly detailed world about a changeling, and then I just got incredibly bored with the amount of detail. There was just way too much detail about every little thing and the over use of detail drew away from what would have been a great story. Because of the detail, the pace of this story just slowed down so much that I found myself skipping entire pages of detail just to get to two to three sentences of dialogue.

Maybe I'll pick up The Iron King again, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon.
