Preview — The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4)
To cold faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thoug...more
Love this book, my favorite of the series!!!! I feel I understand Ash and his perspective on things much better now. Ms. Kagawa has done it again!!!
Ash was much less... romanticized in this book, which makes sense and I'm glad that Ms. Kagawa did that. If he was still like the "perfect" guy, that wouldn't make logical sense. The way she built his character in this book, you saw his strengths and weaknesses and how they made him the complete person---fey?--- that he is. I al ...more
Simply put... PURE PERFECTION!
Story telling does not get any better than this...
I am utterly struggling for the right words to adequately review the brilliance of The Iron Knight, and the series as a whole, and do it ANY justice, so please bear with me.
How could Julie Kagawa meet the excellent story telling of The Iron Queen and her previous books in her series? While, from past experience, I had no doubt she could... I was still amazed that SHE DID... so expertly and so eloquently as only a ...more
Brief recap of what this story is about: to be with girl, boy has to acquire a soul. To do so, boy must pass an unspecified test. Girl has to do absolutely nothing in the meantime.
For the first 2/3 I was so bored that I wanted to gouge my eyes off with a ...more
It's always sad (and a bit scary) to say goodbye to a favorite series. Last books come with such emotionally-fueled expectations. And after, some authors leave you feeling wrung out and crushed, while other authors make your heart sigh with happiness and contentment. Whenever I read a last book, I'm always overwhelmed with that feeling of Please don't ruin what you've created. Well, I am ecstatic to say that in The Iron Knight, Julie Kagawa gives us the per ...more
This will be a really difficult review to write...this is my fifth time of rewriting it actually.
I enjoyed the book, and i loved the story. It's a roller coaster of emotions (as a matter of fact, i cried, laughed like crazy and was pissed off and raging a lot).
But! But! And more but! there is a reason it's not higher than 3. The reason lies in our famous ice prince of the Winter court, Ash.
There is just one thing for certain. You will either hate or still love Ash - or be stuck ...more
Well, that what's happened to me after reading The Iron Knight.
I feel in love with this series right from the very first book. One after the other getting stronger and better. So when I heard the last and final book was on it's way I was excited to see how it would end and sad to see this beloved wo ...more
I must say I have taken a brave attempt to write the review of The Iron Knight when I’m out of my words how to praise this book. How can I describe how much I loved this book when I’m still lost in thoughts and my hands are numb and shaking to write ...more
I’m very thankful that Julie Kagawa didn’t leave us the bittersweet ending of Megan and Ash story in the 3rd book (The Iron Queen) for making this 4th . . . [drum roll] The Iron Knight!
As the final installment of Iron fey series, Ash must take an impossible journey to find his way back to Megan. Since as Winter Fey he cannot survive in the Iron Kingdom and being a human is his only choice but will it be that easy to be human or more gaining a soul? Does he understand what that solution really me ...more
Julie Kagawa is a god.
This series is easily my most favorite series of all time. And Ashallayn'darkmyr Tallyn is easily the best hero in all of YA fantasy. Just when I thought I couldn't love him more, I read this book. I realize now that love is an understatement for what I feel about Ash.
There wasn't a single part of this book that disappointed me. And the ending...oh... <3 Thank you is all I have to say. Thank you ...more
I was not a big fan of the first two Iron Fey books, but The Iron Queen completely stole my heart! Those of you who've read it know all about the beautiful romance, the fierce battle and the bittersweet ending that ensued. I suspect many of her fans were unhappy with the way Kagawa wrapped things up. In fact, some were probably even outraged, but not me – I loved it. That’s why I wasn’t too thr ...more
"I’m almost there. Wait for me just a little bit longer."
I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this review and I don’t even think I could write a review that will do this book the praise it deserves but I will say this, The Iron Knight had everything I could have asked for and more. Julie Kagawa has utterly surpassed my expectations and blown all previous books away with her truly amazing writing, her creative imagination and her gift ...more
I'm going to have a MASSIVE book hangover from this series.
This review is full of spoilers (Don't read it if you haven't finished this book;))
(view spoiler)[The Iron Knight = An emotional roller coaster of epic proportions.
One minute I was laughing at Puck's jokes, the next I was dying inside because I felt so sorry for Ash.
Puck and Ash are my favorite characters in this series. ...more
The plot of this book was so predictable and dry. And that whole End of the World thing? Reminds me of the final bosses in the early Final Fantasy series. Yeah, call me not impressed. Everything seems so rehashed and overdone.
Do you remember what I said in my previous review?
“But anyway, the ending while actually resol ...more
***Please note: It's been a while since finishing this book and I did not include many details in this review.
Initial thoughts after finishing the book:
Somebody get Stephenie Meyer on the phone because this is how you add onto a trilogy without completely screwing your characters over. This is how you make a semi-insta-love relationship awesome. This is how you end a love triangle. And this is how you write a freakin' book!
4 stars seems too low and I think I love Iron Queen a little more (whic ...more
“I promised I’d find a way for us to be together, I intend to keep that promise.”
I should have read the Survival Guide to the Nevernever first before I prowled into the book. Iron Knight is a non-stop action/adventure. Ash is so serious in keeping his promise that he was willing to go through everything as quickly as he should, and travel the extra mile needed to gain a soul. A ver ...more
The Iron Knight, was everything I could have imagined and more. Julie Kagawa has written such a beautiful series, which has come to be my favorite series of all…The Iron Fey series. No one can deny how amazing this series is, and now it is all over. Although I am sad it is over (more like depressed) Julie Kagawa has written the best final book anyone could even imagine. The romance is more beautiful then ever, the action is better, all our que ...more
See, I was going to write a real review for that one and not a compilation of my
I chose Chelsea's review because she perfectly captured what I felt reading this book... and because she's an amazing friend. Go read her review people <3
So, Chelsea, you're famous ma belle <3 a ...more
This book had such a perfect ending! <3
I can't believe it's over :(
I love this series. Just love it. The characters, the story, their adventures. It's addicting!
What was so great about this book? We finally got to peek inside the mind of the Winter Prince himself. That aspect alone was enough to get me to read this book. I’ve always been an Ash fan, and reading this book was like being a kid in a candy store!
I missed Meghan. In the beginning of the book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book. I was craving that Ash/Meghan interaction. That tens ...more
The voices agreed, laughing at me, mocking my quest. I didn't deserve a soul; I didn't deserve happiness, or peace. Why should I get my happy ending, when I'd left a swath of horror and destruction behind me wherever I went?
Hmm. I'm going to marry Prince Ash some day...and then I will be his queen. >.< Can I just be honest? Even after finishing this three nights ago, even after finishing another book last night by another author...when I logged on here to write this review, cl ...more
Julie Kagawa herself revealed in the interview at the end of this book, that The Iron Knight was written because her editor convinced her Meghan and Ash should not be broken apart.
Shame on you, editor.
So what should Ms. Kagawa do in order to get Meghan and Ash back together? What should she do to give her editor and all the Ash/Meghan shippers the Happy Ever After they want? Let's do a checklist:
(1) Put Ash on a ...more
I sort of wish I had not gone through it so quickly though because now I understand how that green JFL mascot* feels whenever it wails after each episode, "It's Over!" But, I am happy... really, I am beca ...more
