I mean, that ending..... are you serious right now?



Well, lets move away from that for a minute and let me crack on with it.

First: This cover is freaking amazing! I'm totally freaking in love with it. ❤ That is Keirran on the front and he's making it look even better - BUT - I want to kick him from one end of Nevernever to the other end!

Let me add an excerpt that you might not want to read because of **spoilers** from the other books.

I know that not all children turn out to be like their parents, but man, that Keirran is something else. It's the equivalent of Bill and Hillary Clinton having Justin Bieber as a son.

Judge me how you will, but not since Harry Potter #5 have my feelings been so heightened by the events of a book. I want to punch someone (Keirran). I want to yell at him. I want to pick him up and shake some goddamn sense into him. I want to hold Annwyl's hand and stay with her into that sad goodnight. I want to sh

Damn, Julie Kagawa has done it yet again! Oh, when will I ever stop putting myself through this author's miserable world? That freaking ending. I mean, what. the. hell.

Our beloved Kenzie and Ethan are back in the human world. For a short while, at least. Then Meghan showed up claiming Keirran is missing, a certain Thin Man is following Ethan, and the most worrisome of all... a Fading Annwyl.

This has been another crazy ride. We were taken into the Between, back to the wyldwood and even get to rev

So apparently I wrote this long lost reaction as soon I finished reading the book. And oh boy did I laugh at myself for being so emotional. So enjoy reading a emotional wreak's reaction, my fellow readers.

WHAT IN THE NAME OF FUCKERY FUCK WAS THAT?
I want to bitch slap Keirran so hard that he will feel the antagonizing pain deep in his coal black soul.

You know what? Julie Kagawa is an evil genius. If that wasn't evident with the ending in The Iron Queen or even with The Immortal Rules, she definitely drove the point home with The Iron Traitor's ending. I'm a little stunned this time around because I'm left wondering how she'll manage to end this thing in the next book. You'll have to excuse me if this review seems a little scattered, but the last few pages blew my little socks off into next Tuesday.

It's interesting that I'd have such a strong

Firstly, Ash is still the best. Sigh.

“A silhouette was striding down the center of the road, heading for the alley we’d just vacated. Lean, tall, a long black coat rippling behind him, he was instantly recognizable. Even from this distance, I could see the glow of his sword, blue-black and deadly, and the glint of a cold silver eye.”

I never thought I'd ever...EVER...want to throw a Julie Kagawa book against the wall...The Eternity Cure came so close...but this...THIS...nearly left my fingers. Not because I hated it but because I loved the story SO much and yet, in the last two pages of the book, Julie proceeded to tear my heart out and eat it for dinner. Yes...the dreaded cliffhanger that Julie dreamed up in this one was a doozie.

Keirran, you bad prince! I hope Ash would freeze you near death. Not cetrain death because you are Meghan and Ash's son and I adore them. Plus, you'd suffer more if you stayed alive and watch your kind treat you as a traitor.

I enjoyed this more than the first book, which I found absolutely rubbish. Not that this was great but it did manage to be somewhat entertaining in places. So yea, that was something at least.

-What's what: Ethan and Kenzie are back from their silly adventure in the Nevernever, but Keirran (Meghan's son/Ethan's nephew/half fae/douche) is missing. His faery girlfriend (Annwyl) is desperate to find him, she asks Ethan and Kenzie for help, they agree. Time is running out for Annwyl though, s

Dit is weeral een schitterend deel van deze serie! Julie Kagawa weet echt hoe ze de aandacht van de lezer bij het verhaal kan houden. Haar schrijfstijl leest lekker vlot. De karakters die ze creëert zijn allemaal geweldig en lijken tot leven te komen als je aan het lezen bent. Toen ik eenmaal in dit boek begonnen was, kon ik het moeilijk weg leggen. Het duurde wel eventjes voor het verhaal op gang kwam, maar daarna was het razend spannend! Dit was een zalig boek en ik kijk er al naar uit om het ...more

I have finished the book around a month or two ago when I got my dirty paws on the silvery ARC. And since then, considering how my mind tends to deceive me into remembering every little thing, I still am overwhelmed by the emotion The Iron Traitor left in its aftermath.

In a very rare occasion I end up liking all the characters in a book, and it was one case where I felt connected with each of the four MCs. I felt their ego, their sentiment, their anger and desperation, love and hatred. I wanted

This was a good book. Let me put that out there. It was really enjoyable, the cast of characters was great to read, and the story was exciting. Julie Kagawa is a great author, and the faery world is something unbelievably imaginative… I just don’t feel as attached to the world as I do her Blood of Eden series.

In the first book, I loved Ethan’s narrative and how different it was to Meghan’s. He was the grouchy teenager who just wanted the fey to leave him alone. But after his unwanted adventure w

As I've said many times before, Julie Kagawa is one of my all time favorite authors. I will gladly read anything she decides to write, and I'm really excited for the new series she has coming out soon. In the meantime, reading the Call of the Forgotten series so far has been completely enthralling. Admittedly, I was slightly less enthused about The Lost Prince as I was with all her other books, but that was mostly because I was getting used to the new characters and didn't really like Ethan much ...more

Because I just couldn't wrap my mind around what I just read in those final pages... I never thought that would happen!

Reaction #2: Murderous rage

Because Julie couldn't do that! She just COULDN'T! I know it was something that was bound to happen, but come on, finishing a book with that kind of cliffhanger can cause serious brain/emotional damage to a person (And I HATE Keirran, with all my he

There should be a warning label on some books ‘SERIOUS CLIFF HANGER’ this, if you haven’t guessed is one of those books.

I have enjoyed all of the Iron Fey books and The Iron Traitor is no exception to that. Julie Kagawa is doing a great job of showing us two ways to deal with what is ultimately the same problem. Both Ethan and Keirran are in love with girls who are most likely doomed to die soon. How they deal with the situation is completely different. While Ethan is about support and living ev

Initial reaction: Dude, that ending. That cliffhanger (but a darned good one). I think this series is shaping up to be a new favorite for me, and I loved this book, but I just have to say two things in the aftermath of reading this book:One: Keirran's an idiot. Two: Poor Ethan.

They changed the title from The Traitor Son to The Iron Traitor...

Interesting....



Update #1: 3/2/13

Ugh, something I been meaning to say about this book's old title. It said The Traitor Son, and everyone jumped to the conclusion that it was Keirran, myself included when I finished The Lost Prince... Maybe the title didn't mean Keirran since the first one wasn't about him, maybe Ethan gets marked as a traitor... to his family and/or humans and now with the title change, The Iron Kingdom...

Julie Kagawas "Das Schicksal der Feen" ist der zweite Band ihrer Jugendbuch Fantasy-Reihe "Plötzlich Prinz". Als riesengroßer Fan von Julie Kagawas "Plötzlich Fee" Reihe, konnte ich meine Finger natürlich auch nicht von ihrer Spin Off Reihe "Plötzlich Prinz" lassen. Leider ist diese bislang noch nicht 100%tig überzeugend, wie die Reihe um Meghan, Ash und Puck.

bijna einde boek. Julie Kagawa verbaasd me elke keer opnieuw. ik kan haar onvermijdelijk toevoegen tot mijn favoriete auteurs. toen ik begon aan de iron fey reeks was ik bang voor de kwantiteit: zou het niet te kinderachtig zijn? zou het lukken om te lezen? is de hoofdpersonage wel ok genoeg?
nu ik voor de eerste keer een reeks doorlees aan 1 stuk ( meestal geef ik het heel snel op), moet ik zeggen dat iron fey wel leuk is. en het helemaal niet kinderachtig is.

The thing with Kagawa is that she so perfectly balances myth and originality to create a series that you don't put down. It took me 3 hours to read this book and I was then up to midnight doing homework because the book is just so good! I won't spoil anything but read ASAP and then message me when you need to join the support group.
