The Iron King Book 17
The Iron King, Julie Kagawa's brilliant debut novel has a slow start but once it gets going it really gets going. And honestly, it took about 200 pages for it to become the kind of novel I like to read, but I think if my tastes were a bit different I probably wouldn't have even found the start slow. Her descriptions of the different characters main character, Megan Chase encounters on her quest to rescue her younger brother from his supernatural abductor are brillinatly creative. More than that it uses fey lore with an innovative twist. YA paranormalcy is genre of choice but after a while all the plots begin to look the same--not true of the Iron King. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
