Preview — The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Knight
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...more
This book picks up basically where the Iron Queen ended. Ash and Robin Goodfellow are going on quests in Nevernever. Ash is looking for something and they have the help of that sweet ish kitty, Grimalkin =)
And I love Nevernever. You just never know what kind of wonderfully, magical stuff you will find there. And things that want to eat you but we won't mention those!
On this journey, the friends run into all kinds of crazy stuff. At one ...more
Picking up where 'The Iron Queen' and 'Summer's Crossing' left off, Ash and ...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 ...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
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 ...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 2. 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 ...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 ...more
"I will be with her again, or I will die."
(this gif is everything)
Yeah, I know that there was all that oath thing, so he was obliged to keep his word, yadda yadda, but stil: gag.
I did like Ash as main character more than Meghan; not that it took that much, considering that when I began to read The Iron Knight I could formulate just one intelligible thought, and it was: No more Meghan for a while. Yes. Yes ...more
I must say I have taken a brave attempt to write the review of The Iron Knight when Im out of my words how to praise this book. How can I describe how much I loved this book when Im still lost in thoughts and my hands are numb and shaking to write ...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 ...more
Im very thankful that Julie Kagawa didnt 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 ...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. Thats why I wasnt too ...more
I just don't care about anything that happens here. I am not interested in the story and characters.
I am very disappointed with this series, everyone seems to love these books but I can't bring myself to care for this story. Although, to be fare, I must admit that the fey has never been a favorite fantasy topic for me, unlike vampires, who are my number one fantasy beings.
Despite being left unmoved by the Iron Fey series, Julie Kagawa's Blood of Eden series is still one of my favorite ...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
So, how did the last installment fare? Judging by my 2 stars, not very well, but let us start with the positives (+negatives)!
1. THERE IS NO MEGHAN CHASE. I cannot stress this enough, because despite Meghan's efforts to prove to us how different she is from ...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
"Im almost there. Wait for me just a little bit longer."
I honestly dont even know where to begin with this review and I dont 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 for ...more
I liked Ash in this, and I felt sorry for him too. It didnt seem fair that he had to sacrifice so much to be with Meghan, when all he wanted to do was to love her and protect her. We also didnt get much from Meghan at all in this book, which was quite a change.
The storyline in this was about Ash trying to become human so that he could return to Meghan and live with her in the Iron Realm, which ...more
Plot - 4.5 out of 5 stars
Really enjoyed it. It was exciting, action-packed, mysterious with a great mid-way plot twist and a very sweet and satisfying ending.
Writing Style - 4 out of 5 stars
It's very simple but with very beautiful and detailed descriptions. Every time there is a POV change, there is a slight change to match the voice of the person. Within the story, there's a lot of foreshadowing to later plot points which are a bit easy to catch on to.
***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 ...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 ...more
I promised Id 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 very ...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 ...more
