drey's thoughts:
I picked up Julie Kagawa's The Iron King because I really liked the cover. And what I found was an amazing story about a sixteen-year-old girl whose life changes drastically when she finds her brother stolen by faeries and replaced by a changeling.

Meghan Chase is having the worst birthday ever. She is completely embarrassed at school, and comes home to find her mother injured, her brother missing, her best friend isn't human, and faeries exist. When she goes looking for him, she gets entangled in the world of the fae, where everything can be bargained for, and nothing is what it seems.

The Iron King spins a magical tale that conjures the fantastical along with a quest. I had visions à la Alice in WonderlandLabyrinth, and The Chronicles of Narnia floating through my head while reading this one, and loved how today's modernity is represented in the Iron fey. I cannot wait for more.

This book is out of my comfort range, but so many people have loved it, I feel like I need to give it a try.

sometimes that's the fun of blogging, though, isn't it--finding things that are out of your comfort range and giving it a try? :)
