The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Summary Provided by Harlequin Teen:
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.

My Thoughts:
Love, Love, Love. I love Meghan. I love Puck. I REALLY love Ash. I love everything about this book. I love the cover, the page design, the plot, Nevernever. I even love the big, bad, evil Iron Fey. Which really, The Iron Fey aren’t “bad”, there just different and trying to survive too.

In the third book of The Iron Fey series, it’s up to Meghan, Puck, Ash, and Grimalkin to go into the heart of the Iron Fey realm to stop a war before all of the Winter and Summer Fey are destroyed. I never had any issues with Meghan as a character, and she just grew so much more in this book. She’s even more kick-ass then before! Puck was still the same funny, Puck, but I think he was a little rougher around the edges. Then there is Ash, beautiful, amazing Ash. All I wanted to do throughout the entire book was hug him. I also love Puck and Ash’s scenes together. It’s so funny how much they hate each other, yet care about each other at the same time.  

I enjoyed seeing a softer side to Queen Mab. She really does love Ash, and I liked seeing that play out.

Watching Meghan and Ash love story unfold was heartbreaking. She being a Summer Princess with Iron Fey powers and him being the Winter Prince, you knew the odds were always against them. I still have hope for them.

Julie Kagawa is an amazing storyteller. She created this vivid world of Nevernever and really brought it to life in her writing. I felt like I was there with the characters, experiencing exactly what they were going through. No moment is boring in The Iron Queen, there is so much action and plot twists that there is no good time to stop reading. You just have to keep on reading till you hit the last page. This is a series that just keeps getting better and better!

The next book, The Iron Knight is Ash’s story. It should be out later this year, but I am not sure if I can wait for it. Maybe I could break into Harlequin Teen and steal the manuscript. Yeah, that’s what I am going to do! 

Love, Kristina
