Today in YA History: August 1, 2010 – ‘The Iron Daughter’ published!

August 1, 2010: The second in the “Iron Fey” miniseries by Julie Kagawa, The Iron Daughter, is published with Harlequin TEEN.

Summary from Julie’s site: Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan’s own fey powers have been cut off. She’s alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can’t help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

The fourth book, The Iron Knight, will be released October 25th, 2011. So in the meantime you can catch up on The Iron Queen, The Iron Daughter, and The Iron King! Plus, Julie offers a free ‘Iron Fey’ novella–Winter’s Passage–over at

Be sure to check out the whole series at your local bookstore!

Happy book-day to Julie and The Iron Daughter!

  1. Just managed to purchase the Iron Daughter, and the Iron Queen & Iron King are on hold at another book store for pick up tomorrow. My 11 year old granddaughter is about to get all three next weekend when she visits. I am so excited. Thanks!

    1. :D That is sooo exciting!! I really hope she loves them! They have been getting a lot of interest and press. I wonder if they’ll make a movie some day? There’s even a fun “behind-the-scenes” on making the cover for the next book, “The Iron Knight”, over on Julie’s site I believe, or otherwise available on YouTube. EM, thank you so much for sharing! I am glad that these moments in YA history are being enjoyed AND getting great YA novels into the hands of new readers. :D
