The Iron King (Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa
Publication Date: February 1st 2010
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 363

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 I'm kind of slow on this trend but sometimes that's a good thing, because since they're four plus some .5's out there, if I really get into this book (when I do pick it up) I won't have to wait a whole year to get my hands on the next in the series.

Sometimes not following a trend can be a good thing. (:
