The Iron Daughter, by Julie Kagawa (Harlequin Teen, 2010)

Making good on a promise, Meghan, recently revealed as the half-human daughter of King Oberon of the Summer Fae, has become an uneasy “guest” in the Winter Court of Queen Mab, where she must deal with court politics and prejudice. An on-again off-again forbidden romance with Prince Ash both comforts and confuses her, but even that’s a distraction from the true threat of the newly-discovered Iron Fae, whose very natures will destroy all of Faery if left unchecked. As the wildcard, it’s up to Meghan to change the course of events, but it may cost her her heart and soul. There’re some pleasing twists in an otherwise fairly-predictable storyline, but the entire concept of the Iron Fae elevates this to a worthy level. It’ll be interesting to see how it all pulls together in the next book.
