The Iron King series surely had come a long way. I remember the first time I picked up the first Iron King book. I was entranced by the cover and the story; it immediately captivated me from the first page. I never ever thought that there would be a better book than the first one and then came Iron daughter. I was nervous because there’s this epidemic going around with books. Don’t you just hate when books goes from good to a complete mess? Yeah that’s basically what the epidemic is. I am happy to say that the second book didn’t made me want to vomit, in fact it was much better than the first book, so that lead me to the third. I had really high expectations for this one and it met all my expectations and I’m pleased to say it left me breathless and wanting for more.

I loved how Julie Kagawa developed her characters. Starting off with Meghan, she definitely became more independent and strong as a person and I loved that. Puck, I love Puck. I am slightly disappointed she didn’t end up with him because well, he’s always been there for her, and really guys? Who doesn’t love a fun, mischievous, loyal guy who would give up everything for the girl he loves to be happy? If you do, there is seriously something wrong with you. Ash, I have to admit I was slightly piss off with ash in Iron daughter but he definitely stepped up his game and sorry puck but I think Ash is better off with Megan.(yes! I said it, sorry team puck fans I’m a traitor) you could see their passion for each other as chapters pass. Anyways, let’s move on to my most favored character in the book, Grim. I just love him, His intelligence and the sarcastic tone he has is quite adorable and it captures my heart. I love how he acts like he doesn’t care about anything, when in reality he does. The new characters had interesting personalities too and I’m excited to learn more about them in Ash’s story the Iron Prince.

Iron Queen was never boring and it flowed really well. Everything was just well organized and put together from the first two books. I could tell that Julie Kagawa worked really hard to make this happen. I am so glad to be able to be one of her readers/fan. She has become one of my favorite authors ever and I am definitely looking forward for her future works especially the Iron Knight, Ash’s story. <3 I recommend her series to you, because I’m quite sure that you won’t be disappointed.

Quotes Angelica Liked

Julie Kagawa
“My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours.”
Julie Kagawa, The Iron Queen

Michele (Reading Lark/CanadianTwiMom) Angelica, The Iron Fey series is my most favourite YA book series... EVER!! I agree with everything you said... although I've always been Team Ash... I still LOVE Puck too! Incase you didn't know, Julie is putting out a free online novella on June 1st called Summer's Crossing (you can't buy it in book form... info on her blog/website). It's PUCK's story, and takes place right after the events of TIQ. It'll bridge the last book to The Iron Knight due out in the fall. :)
