The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Follow Your Heart!
Meghan may have destroyed Machina but that hasn't stopped the Iron fey. With a new Iron King the Iron fey will stop at nothing to destroy the Winter and Summer fey courts and are causing chaos in the most devastating way possible. Unfortunately the Winter and Summer fey still doubt the Iron fey's existence as only Meghan, Ash and Puck seem to be the only ones to have encountered them first-hand and are therefore the only ones who can stop the ruthless Iron fey.
However Meghan is trapped in a world of inescapable cold with no one to trust surrounded by curious and malicious fey of every sort imaginable. Ash is growing ever distant from Meghan becoming hard and cold with her, leaving Meghan to slowly doubt his love for her. And Puck is still unconscious within a tree somewhere leaving little chance of anyone knowing the truth of what has happened and returning what was stolen, preventing a war that everyone seems to want and stopping the unstoppable force that is the Iron fey from destroying the Nevernever.
The Iron Daughter is a story of love turned cold, of trust turning to betrayal and of the whole world coming down around you. But it is also a story of old friends returning and old enemies uniting in a quest to save all. This is where unexpected feelings, past secrets and old friends only complicate an already impossible situation. That of Meghan caught between two worlds and two boys, where she must make a choice knowing that someone is going to walk away with a broken heart; if she's not lucky it will be her own.
