YA Giveaway - The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Harlequin Teen, I have a terrific contest for everyone. In preparation for the launch of The Iron Daughter (August 1), the second book in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, I have a copy of The Iron King and a $25 Visa gift card to give away. Just leave a comment telling us something about the last YA book that you read. Contest open to US and Canadian residents. The winner will be selected August 4.

I read and enjoyed The Iron King when it was first released, but being the delinquent that I am I didn't post a review. I will be posting a review for The Iron Daughter before August 1. You can read a couple of excellent reviews of the book at Tynga's Reviews and Anna's Book Blog.

You can visit the book's official website here or Julie Kagawa's website here.



ABOUT THE IRON KING

In less than twenty-four hours Meghan Chase will be sixteen. Countless stories, songs and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset.

But Meghan suspects that it won’t be that way for her.

After all, Meghan has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined….

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and a pawn in a deadly war.

Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

ABOUT THE IRON DAUGHTER

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan Chase 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.

ABOUT JULIE KAGAWA

Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine, she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish and the odd eel.

When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks is at an all-time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian shepherd who is too smart for his own good and the latest addition, a hyperactive papillon puppy.

  15. I don't read that many YA's but I just finished Hearts At Stake by Alyxandra Harvey. It had good and bad points. I liked the characters, but the plot seemed a bit muddled to me. I'd probably rate it a 3 out of 5.

  37. The last YA novel I read was Hearts at Stake. This one was cute and the plot was very fast paced. Don't know if I'll continue the series because I found out the focus shifts to two new characters in the next book and I generally like to stick with the same characters throughout a series.

    I read an excerpt of Iron King and this one held my interest so I would love to win this one.

  47. I can't remember the title of the last YA I read. I know it was a paranormal and that it was written by an author whose adult novels I have read. The one before it was The Iron King which I really enjoyed (the cover kind of turned me off so I bypassed it many times for other books, then it turns out I really liked it)and have The Iron Daughter on my wish list.

    Man, I've read a lot of YA lately, it rocks. I just finished The Iron King, Winter's Passage, and The Iron Daughter last week (all from Net Galley). Excellent world building and let's face, not nearly enough Shakespeare related material out there, LOL! I've read Once Dead, Twice Shy, and the entire Soul Screamers Series. Now if I can find time to write all of the reviews!

  65. The last YA book I read was Other by Karen Kincy. I loved her world of "Others" (anyone who is not fully human) and that the entire world knew about the Others. She writes a great novel about discrimination and how to be true to yourself.

    This is a great giveaway. Thank you for a chance to win such fabulous prizes. I love The Iron King and have been wanting to get my own copy for a while now.

  67. My last not adult reading was Runemarks by Julie Harris which is a bit younger than most YA so that probably wouldn't count. (it was good though) Before that the only other YA I've read recently is Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine which was also very good.

  88. Well I never read just one book at a time. I usually tackle 5-6 books, switching books every couple of hours/days. So the last batch of YA novels I read were:

    Adios To All The Drama - Diana Rodriguez-Wallach (Excellent conclusion to a coming of age series, based on a young girl of mixed heritage being sent away to Puerto Rico one summer to be with the other side of her family, and her life changing radically.)

    North of Beautiful - Justina Chen Headley (Excellent novel on a young lady who has it all, intelligence, humor, good looks. If only she didn't have a large port-wine birthmark on her cheek. It's about her struggle to give in to society and be rid of the stain or to embrace her beauty, marked and all.)

    Name of the Wind - Patrick Ruthfuss (The beginning of a story about one of the most magically gifted of our kind who becomes one of the most notoroious our world has ever seen. I'm eagerly awaiting the second book in the King Killer Chronicles.)

    Skeleton Creek - Patrick Carman (Terrifying interactive story utilizing both book and internet references to frighten readers curious enough to turn the page.)

    Burned - PC Cast & Kristin Cast (The seventh in the series... continuing from where our heroin's soul had been shattered, where allegences were made with unlikely characters, and where one with the power to see the future blurs the lines between what could be and what is. Will the House of Night crumble? Has the Vampire High Counsel given way to evil? What has become of the High Priestess?)

    Lastly...

    The Lightbearer's Daughter - O.R. Melling (The third in a series that explores the enchanting world of Faerie, set in Ireland. It's impossible to describe without ruining what has happened in the previous two books. All that can be said is Melling has you spellbound from the first page and takes you into Faerie and you find yourself betwixt and between!)

  117. I just finished (about 1 hour ago) "The Amaranth Enchantment". I thought it was a very good read and I recommend it to others.

  118. The last YA book I read was My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent. It was a great addition to that series.

    Thanks for the contest!

  119. I just finished Vampire Kisses. It is probably a youth book not young adult but it was entertaining and a good introduction to paranormal for a young reader.

  120. I have no idea if I'm in time to enter this, but I'll try anyway!

    The last YA book I read (that I am reading right now) is The Darkangel by Meredith Ann Pierce. It's a fairytale-type story about a slave girl whose mistress is stolen by a beautiful-but-deadly darkangel, who reduces all of his brides to wraiths. The girl decides to try to kill the darkangel, but is captured by him instead, and must look after the bride-wraiths and spin them clothes out of her own feelings with a magical spindle.

    I'm only a small ways into it, but I did read it about 10 years ago. Not that I remember much. What floors me is that I never realized that this is both a fantasy AND science fiction book. The days/nights are referred to as day-months months, and another character tells a story about how the Heaven-born came to the world and terraformed it. Cool beans.

    Thank you muchly for the giveaway!

  123. It was a fun read and really crossed the fantasy/YA divide. Although, I would suggest renting it from the library instead of purchasing it.
