Book 45: The Iron King

theironkingThe Iron King (The Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa

 

I liked this book, but I didn’t love it. I was very impressed with faeryland and all that it encompasses. The love story (and triangle) didn’t really draw me in. Now I love me those brooding, silent, heart as cold as ice guys, but I didn’t feel the chemistry. And I think I’ve been to use to strong-willed females that Meghan was more tame than I’m used to. But she did pull through at the end, I liked how she commanded the roots to constrict the Iron King, and very dramatically stabbed him with the Witchwood, that was a beautiful scene. Hopefully when she is dragged into the Unseelie Court, she’ll walk in with loads of dignity and sass.

    When I read this book, I went through a phase where I adored faeries. However I found it a bit disappointing, and whilst I agree the faery land is impressive, the storyline wasn’t as strong as it could be. It didn’t make an impact the way other books have. If you want an awesome faery read, I would strongly recommend the Need books by Carrie Jones, the first two are particularly epic. Your insight into this book has been pretty cool and I may read it again, you know , give it a second chance 🙂

      This was actually my first foray into faery fiction, and I liked the concept of faeries and fiction, so I’ll definitely add that series to my to-read list. Thank you for your comment! I’m glad you liked my post:)
