Book 57: The Iron Knight

16 Jul

theironknightThe Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4) by Julia Kagawa


I loved this not as much as I loved the Iron Queen, but more than the first two books. I get to hang out with Ash, one of my favorite broody boy characters. We leave off from Meghan kicking him out of her realm (in the name of love no less), and there he is, trying to find his way back to her. swoon* Of course he has to have his trusty best friend/arch nemesis, Puck, along for the ride. Lots of cute banter moments. Add in Grim, the cat, and the big bad Wolf and we’re almost complete. But there seems to be some romantic drama lacking so let’s bring Ariella back from the dead, oh you know the first girl Ash loved. She was good, I didn’t dislike her, even though I thouroughly ship Ash/Meghan. Now our gaming party is complete to seek a way for Ash to gain a soul and make his way to Meghan. My favorite scene had to be when Ash, and Meghan are by the pond. She just found out that Ash is back with Ariella, and OMG my heart was just breaking when she gives him up, again. I won’t lie, I teared up a little when she said, “What we had was a dream and it was beautiufl, but it was just a dream. It’s time for us to wake up.” And as heartbreaking as that line was my favorite line had to be, “I cam home.” Oh Ash. *sigh

Book 56: The Iron Queen

I loved loved loved it! There was not any unnecessary drama, and just the right amount of action. Meghan has her sweet brooding prince, (did he get even more cute and likable in this book, or was that just me?) Ash, and you know they’re not hiding it, and it’s all so adorable. Puck is able to shove his love triangle-y feelings aside, so they can be besties. Meghan definitely grew into herself, the “year” that she has been in Faeryland. She gets Ash to teach her how to fight, talks shop with the royals with her emerging the victor, and finally kicks some serious ass with her use of magic. My favorite scene would have to be when Meghan is laying at the base of the tree, and with her dying strength uses her Summer/Iron glamour tag team to heal the Iron Kingdom. It is just a very beautiful scene in my head.


Book 53: The Iron Daughter

We start off in the Unseelie court and Meghan is miserable because Ash has seemingly abandoned her. She was very very annoying in the beginning, but I guess that’s heartbreak for you. And gosh, no wonder guys think girls are so flighty, kissing Ash one day then making out with Puck the next. But sad to say this story does not end well for the nice best friend type guy, and Meghan chooses the Ice Prince. But you know he did kind of give up his whole world for you, so it was not really a choice. On the plotier side of things. We found out where Meghan’s “dad” had been for the last 10 years. And maybe the best part of the whole book, Meghan is the yet unknown queen of the Iron Fey. I’m pretty sure she broke through her magic seal, so not only does she have her summer powers but she can also control the iron glamour. So exciting. Awww IRONHORSE! No!



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.
