This thread will be long as it will continue reviews from all the Iron Fey books so far by: Julie Kagawa they are geared towards young adult but I have found many adults enjoy this series as well.
Description of Amazon's Site:
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined… Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
This was a great story not your normal happy light book but more action adventure and darker forces type story. The descriptions were great and I felt like I was walking along with Ash and Meghan. I also enjoyed the talking cat who helped her as well. I think anyone young and old will love this story. The climax of the story is great building up the anticipation of rescuing Ethan from the changeling in his place. Definitely something I could loose myself in time and again. I rate this a 5 cup book definitely.
Is the short novella fromJulie Kagawa which details the move from Meghan's home to the Winter Court where she has a contract to fulfill. Along the way she gets confused with the signals coming from the Winter Prince Ash. Kind of reminds me of Romeo and Juliet. I would definitely read this inbetween The Iron King and The Iron Daughter. We also learn that Puck's fate hasn't changed much he's still in a coma like state. As always I love these covers with this series and the story telling makes you feel like you are going along for the ride. A 4 cup book, as I wish it was a little longer than it was.
This book follows Winter Prince Ash and Summer Princess Meghan as they are in Winter Court where Meghan is reminded that she is only half fae. She gets treated poorly through out this, when someone decides to storm the court and kill Sage, Ash's older brother. Ash decides to get Meghan back to her court where she would be safe under the care of her father. Rowan Prince Ash's other brother has teamed up with the Iron Fey to conquer the Nevernever. Where they meet up with Puck who's trying to bring Meghan back to her side. The three decide to stop the Evil Virus as she had at one point infected Ash with Iron.
I really enjoyed this story the action was great as it has been through the beginning. Now the two main characters, Summer Princess Meghan and Winter Prince Ash find themselves exiled to the human world. I am curious to see how that will play out especiall y with Ironhorse stating to Meghan that she was the Queen of the Iron Fey. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out The Iron Queen. I rate this book 5 cups. Great read for anyone.
My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.
Ash, Meghan and Puck join up again to eliminate the Iron King, by this point Meghan is finding herself more attached to Iron then the other books. Meghan is also having more control issues with Summer against Iron magic. I enjoy this series and really love the characters the Ice Prince, and the ever lovable Puck who does anything for a laugh. I can only imagine how the Iron Knight will play out. As Ash seems on a mission and how it will turn out is anyone guess. I also find when I'm reading these books I can just breeze right through them. Definitely worth the read. I could see introducing this series to my kids when they are teenagers. I think they would enjoy this series. I rate this book a 5 cup book, I have loved all these books. Never a disappointment.
A Midsummer's Nightmare? Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon's right hand, bane of many a faery queen's existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl's death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone's come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck's help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.
An ebook exclusive novella from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.
I loved this book, as the two boys who use to be friends are working with each other to best the Summer Queen. While you are reading from Robin Goodfellow's perspective I enjoyed seeing them somewhat get along. It does show how they use to be very close and even Meghan can't separate what friendship lies deep down. Definitely different then the books that are told from Meghan's prospective. This one was purely about the guys. I laughed and could feel the missing element from the trio. Be interesting to see how The Iron Knight plays out.
I am reading soon I hope the Iron Knight. I got it through NetGalley just haven't read it yet.
