The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

I was a little hesitant to pick up the galley and read it to be honest. Its not that I dislike this series but the books have never really stood out to me. I have a hard time getting into the faery world especially with all the different takes on faeries. However the third book is the charm. I really enjoyed the Iron Queen. I found it hard to put down as I tried to figure out how Meghan was going to beat the False Iron King. It was quite interesting. Amazon doesn’t have a summary so here’s mine:

Meghan, Puck and Ash once again find themselves in the middle of faery politics. Despite Meghan and Ash being exiled from faery Meghan is being hunted by the Iron Fey and has to fight back to save faery and to live her own normal life. Crazy twists and turns happen as they try to locate the False King and find a way to defeat him.

What was nice in this book was that there was less of awkward moments between Meghan and the courts. It was just Meghan and Ash or all three of them. So the reader really gets to see what the true Ash is away from Winter Court politics.

I also never expected the turns that the story took. That was pretty interesting. Some of the turns really shocked me.  I really don’t have any criticism of this book. It was a great read and I loved the story line and the different sides of the characters that I got to see in this plot. I will say the ending was another cliffhanger and I am now eagerly awaiting the fourth book which is entirely too far away J I give this book a 5/5 and recommend you pick it up as soon as it comes out!

  1. I really liked the first book in this series, and thought the second was just so-so. I'm a little leary about reading the third, but I'm planning to get to it soon.
