Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa

I waited almost exactly nine months for this book to come out. I fell in love with this series in December and was lucky enough to get the arc of Iron Queen, horrified with its ending. And then I learned that this book was coming out so I waited...but actually having the book was a shock. It seemed like this day would never come. But it did.

Ash, the sweet winter prince is searching for a soul to return to his love Meghan Chase. My heart absolutely ached during this entire book. Ash is absolutely incomparable to all the other YA guys. He struggled, he suffered, he endured, he loved, he fought...and he learned what it was like to truly become a human with a soul. He deserved a happy ending.

I was kind of upset that Meghan wasn't in this book as much but this was to be expected. She already told her story, it was Ash's turn.

Puck was so much more enjoyable in this one. In the Iron Queen, I was annoyed with him but seeing him around Ash and basically being his best friend was great. Anyone can tell that they really cared about each other and I'm hoping he has the chance to tell his story. Plus he was downright hilarious at times.

It was also great seeing Grim again. But what to say about him? He's a cat...he got some of the best lines. And seeing him fight with the Big Bad Wolf for the entire journey was great. I love me my wolves though ;)

There was another character that I will not say the name of due to spoilers. But she was definitely a pain for the first half of the book, at least to me. The second half though, I felt like she redeemed herself and it made me sad to see what was going to happen to her.

Overall, I loved this book. It was absolutely the perfect ending to this series in every possible way. The writing was amazing, the plot was strong, and the message was clear. I absolutely love Kagawa and I am so happy that she did not leave things the way they were with Iron Queen. Cause true love deserves to win once in awhile. I can't wait for her new vampire series and her side series with Meghan's little brother Ethan, who basically started this whole thing!

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Yes it WAS!


Lindsay Have you read her excerpt of her newest book?


Gabrielle Carolina Lindsay wrote: "Have you read her excerpt of her newest book?"

I have, but I'm more excited for Ethan's upcoming series more than anything. : )


Lindsay Me too! I'm wondering if he'll be friends with Puck...and who he'll possibly be with as well.

I'm hoping *SPOILER TO ALL NON-LINDSAY'S* Kierran and maybe some other tykes will be around. ; )


Lindsay Oh my gosh yes! Kierran! I was so utterly shocked when I read that *SPOILER TO ALL NON-GABRIELLE'S* Ash and Meghan had a son that was devilish and very Puck-like...oh my gosh I am hoping they have a million children lol

You know... that kid is 1) Summer. 2) Winter. 3) Iron. 4) Human and now 5) "Unique"

That's a pretty powerful boy. I'm sure Julie knows this, now I wanna see what she'll do with that!


Lindsay That is true, I never thought about him that way. I really can't wait to see where she goes with him. And Ethan as well...I'm wondering who he could possibly fall in love with.

Someone new, I think. Summer, probably. Or Iron? Wow. That would be weird/cool!


Lindsay IRON! That would be insane! But very cool :)
