This book totally surprised me. I did not like Iron at all in the first book and expected to hate this book. I hadn't figured in how much I would like Dawn. She is just really smart and a perfect match for Iron. The title says it all. This book also introduces us to Ice and Coal who are in the next 2 books. At least in this book Iron didn't seem oblivious to Flint and Steel having human women like in the last book.
