The Iron Prince -- my nephew -- betrayed us all.

He killed me.

Then, I woke up.

Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion an

I have no doubt that Julie is working her head off trying to find the perfect ending to her first and wonderful series. We don't want the book rushed and I know the wait is soo annoying (i really do, I check back here almost everyday for updates) but it will be done, all we can do is be patient. (less)

Kierran. What the hell.


Did your parents ever discipline you? Why would you do that? I just...I just can't.


I'm so upset right now.


Ash and Megan better put their foot down and ground that kid. For life. In the dungeon. With no supper.

I'm so happy with this whole series! From the first 4 books and the continuation in the last 3 books! ❤️

This book was so good! I mean there was a war and some peeps died and stuff you know. BUT, overall it went back to being wonderful and I teared up a little.

It really was a happy ever after for almost everyone.

If you have been meaning to read these books I would recommend them. I wasn't sure I would like them since I have had them so long and my thoughts change about books - But nope, I loved

"This is a war, Ethan Chase. And you are not like your sister. You do not commend the power of Summer and Iron. You do not have the son of Mab and the infamous Robin Goodfellow at your side. You are a mere mortal with no power of your own, a girl who is dying and a gremlin. How do you expect to make things right, Ethan Chase? How do you expect to stand against the Forgotten and their queen?"

I was a little startled when I saw the page count was 330 pages. The Iron Knight was like 40

I am sorry, but did she just say not one, not two, but mo-fucking three deaths?
If she even dares to think about killing off my babies Ash, Puck or even Meghan asdfghjkl-
I am done. Ladies and gentlemen. I. AM. DONE. Body and soul.
And Evil? Man, you are right next to Lucifer atm.

I hope, dear God, that Keirran will have an epic character development on the 3rd book because holy freaking cow, that boy....

That stupid, selfish,reckless sunnavamuthafuckinbeetz. The only reason why I'm giving him a chance of redemption is because he's still so young, and young people do stupid things.

But goodness, his stupidity caused a war AND FUCKING MURDER.


Also, if Julie Kagawa doesn't revive Ethan, I will go shitbricks.

So the day has finally come. The day I finished the last book of my favorite series... I will miss my faeries... :(

Hanging with Ethan, Kenzie and Keirran was an amazing experience and I would do it all over again if I could.

This world, that Julie Kagawa created, is my favorite world of all the fictional ones, and while other bookworms are waiting for their letter from Hogwarts, I am waiting for a faerie creature to come and take me to NeverNever. I could be a slave to faeries, I don't mind! I c

Second book:
Things went from poop to sh!t to sh!t hole.
Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, Kagawa goes, "Oh yeah, well, take this!" and throws in another plot twist.

“Had that been Meghan and her knights, come to save me?"

This was a really good end to the series, and I enjoyed it.

I liked Ethan in this book and I was so glad that he was okay after the events at the end of book 2! That cliff-hanger was a bit of a killer, but I was glad that things worked out okay. Ethan really held it together well in this book, and really pu
Spoilers for the Iron Traitor in this review

Suprise! Ethan lives after being stabbed by that brat, Keirran. He wakes up to a world in chaos after the veil disappears, so naturally Ethan rushes in to save the day.

Alright, let's get onto the good stuff. I have read several books about feys in the last few years and nothing comes close to Julie Kagawa's NeverNever. Stepping back into NeverNever reminded me how much I missed the snarl and tangle of the Wyldwood, the steampunky streets of Mag Tuiredh
Review: 1/2/2016
New year, new book finished.

Now having a two years hiatus from the iron fey (yeah, you read that right. TWO years away from this series!) I have come back. So, I picked this up without rereading any of the previous books to refresh my mind because to an extent the authors write their books in a way that it hints at past events to jog your memories so I let Ms Kagawa do it and what I forgot, oh well. This is a tale of the Forgotten so I think I'm granted some leeway in my forgetti

The very last Iron Fey book. Never again will I return to this magical world. No more faeries, no more talking cats and to just stick the knife right into my heart- no more Ashallyn’ darkmyr Tallyn. Is everybody just a little bit depressed, everybody with me? Great, now onto the review!

So after the literally ‘killer’ ending of The Lost Prince we find out that Ethan is in fact not dead whew, the Veil between humans and faeries was temporarily lifted during Ethan’s ‘death’, The Dark Muse/The Lady

I am reading you for the probable fifteen pages of Puck.

Update 10/4/16:

It is with a bittersweet feeling that I have finished the last book in the Iron Fey series. Farewell to the magnificent world built upon lore and Kagawa's originality; goodbye to Robin Goodfellow. (Spoiler: Shakespeare's rendition of him is not as hot as Kagawa's. I mean, unless you get turned on by donkeys.)

Compared to the previous books in the series, it was easier to appreciate Ethan and Kenzie for their realistic teenage

Updated November 7, 2015:
The Iron Warrior is gripping, emotional, shocking and amazing. Ethan wakes up after nearly being killed by Keirran and learns that the Forgotten Queen has gotten stronger thanks to the Veil being temporary broken that has allowed the humans to see the world of Faery. Now the fully powered Forgotten Queen is on her way with her army to destroy the Faery Courts with Keirran leading the way. To stop the Forgotten Queen and save Kierran and Faery, Ethan, Kenzie and his frien
Final rating: 3.5/5 stars

“I thought you didn’t believe in fate or destiny.”
“I don’t.” Kenzie shrugged. “There’s always a choice, Ethan, even if between running away and facing the thing that scares us head-on. Even if all paths lead to the same place.” She paused a moment, staring up into the canopy, her voice going soft. “How we get there, and what we do on the way, that’s always up to us.”

Since this is a conclusion of a series I have been reading for years, I will write only a shor

-Wasn't entertained by the story much, it mostly consisted of drawn out action scenes and Ethan/Kenzie searching for various people and going from place A to B to C, it just wasn't interesting.

-Enjoyed the world and some of the secondary characters, they kept the book from being 1 star instead of 2.

-Still didn't like Ethan all that much, he was a lot better than he was in the first two books though. His bitterness and self-pity was still there but to a lesser degree. It didn't help when

Puck winked at me. "I'm sure I'll see you again, whether you like it or not."

"Yeah," I deadpanned. "So looking forward to it."

Puck laughed again. "Don't you forget it. Until the next adventure kiddos."

Sticking his hands into his pockets, the Great Prankster sauntered off, whistling until he reached the edge of the trees and vanished into the shadows.

The first part of the series will always be my favorite but I loved this world and I'm glad I got the chance to be back in it. Ash,
The end. Fin. Ende. Final. Whatever language you're using - the meaning won't change. The epic series is over. Am I sad? Yes. It was a long journey and a memorable one. Did this book disappoint me? Yes. Do I feel sorry for reading it? No. This book is a good buy. Was it a necessary book? No. The first four books were perfectly enough to put an end to this journey, but Julie Kagawa decided to prolong it. I enjoyed this new trilogy but it did not evoke the same feelings. I was happy to see old fri ...more
November 14th 2015: *sigh* It's the end of an epic era.

EDIT: Okay, it's been a while since I finished this book, and I thought maybe I should say more about the ending of one of my all time favorite series. BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. Seriously, I don't. Not without spoiling, anyways. And I feel like once I start, I'll never stop.

So I'll just say this. Give this series a chance, guys. Even if you're only slightly curious, DO IT. If you love it, that's awesome. If you hate it, that's absolutel

I can't even. The Iron Warrior was so much better than I thought it would ever be! I cried, I laughed, experienced all the crazy adventures with the characters and now my beloved Iron Fey series is truly over.

I will miss the beautiful faery world - Nevernever, all its dark corners, disputed courts, strange creatures and all the secrets it holds. I will miss the characters so much - Meghan, Ash, Puck, Grimalkin, Ethan, Kenzie, Keirran..

I am so annoyed.
I'm upset that no one kicked Keirran's ass.
All talk and no play, children. It's like you live by this rule.

Oh shit.
I almost forgot this existed.
I def know I liked The Forgotten Crown better than The Iron Warrior ugh
Edit: I'm kind of worried now. Already, she's played the I-Killed-You-But-Surprise-They-Aren't-Really-Dead card twice.

I have a love/hate relationship with Julie Kagawa.

I got a copy of this book via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.


The Iron Fey was one of the first young-adult series that I loved. It was flawed, but I loved the characters and the world-building with all my heart. Even now it's my favourite series about Fae. However I've always thought that the spin-off wasn't half as charming and compelling as the original series. Ethan, Kenzie and Keirran pale if compared to the original trio and it speaks volumes the fact that the thing I loved

“Puck laughed, shaking his head at the prince's expression. "Looks like you just got scolded by a gremlin, Your Magesty," he chuckled and crossed his arms. "Ah, can't say I'm not gonna miss you two. We had some fun times, right, princeling? Sadest past is, I won't ever hear ice-boy complain that I'm corrupting you again. But, I guess all good things mus come to an end."
