The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

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—ironbound 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 stuck 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

 Summary taken from Goodreads 

This is the second in the Iron Fey series, and I think it was an improvement over the first.

War is breaking out between Summer and Winter courts. The Specter of the Summers, which has been passed between the courts for centuries to make the passing of the seasons, has been stolen from the Winter court. Of course, they blame Summer, especially after the murder of one of their Royals. Only Ash and and Meghan know the truth, that the Iron Fey is behind it all. And after a betrayal by one of Winter's own, no one will believe them. So now Ash and Meghan are on the run from their courts, risking their lives to steal the Specter back from the Iron Fey.

The action in this just doesn't stop. There is battle after battle, each unique and terrifying.

There was only one thing that really started to get on my nerves. Meghan jerking Puck around. Kissing him, then pushing him away saying she has feelings for Ash. It's clear the entire time that Ash and Meghan are in love and no matter what they say they aren't over each other. But she wouldn't just let Puck go. It pissed me off. Puck is my favorite character and he deserved so much better than the way Meghan treated him in this book.

Meghan and Ash are the epitome of star crossed lovers and I'm rooting for them! They make each other better and they are a great couple.

The ending made me very curious of how this books are going to progress and I can't wait to find out!
