Review: 4 Stars - The third book in the Iron Fey Series, By Julie Kagawa – The
Iron Queen – tells the continuing tales of half human, half fey princess Meghan
Chase. It’s thrilling, adventurous, emotional, and humorous all around amazing
series for fans of YA Paranormal.
Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grim are back and I have to say better
than ever. This new journey takes them through some tough times, as the
Nevernever is being consumed by the Iron realm. Both Winter and Summer courts
are at war with the Iron Fey to try to save their world and their lives.
Meghan is continuing to evolve and grow and you can see the
difference in her from the first books right through the heartbreaking, tear
jerking ending of the Iron Queen. I should mention that this is one of those
endings that I wouldn't have been able to deal with well if I didn't have the
Iron Knight to pick up and read back to back with this one. Meghan is such a
strong female character who has quickly become a favorite of mine. Her
interaction with Ash, Puck and Grim is highly entertaining and often sweet.
However, it’s her selflessness and all that she’s willing to give up for those
she loves that make her memorable and heartwarming character.
Ash and Puck have also grown by leaps and bounds from the
first time we've met them. Especially Ash who’s hard exterior has always been
tough to crack. It’s those little glimpses that we get to see, because of
Meghan that give Ash a depth that I looked forward to reading more about in the
And Puck, he’s charming and as always entertaining. Yet he’s
changed as well. You can feel his sadness through his usual banter and carefree
self. And then I can’t forget to mention Grim. He’s the same, with the
exception of one scene towards the end that started the water works flowing. Yep,
while reading this book, I’ll admit that I did shed some tears here and there.
But, anytime a writer can affect me emotionally with their writing and
characters as Kagawa has, makes for a good read.
All in all, if you haven’t picked up the first book in the
Iron Fey series – The Iron Daughter, what are you waiting for? These books have
a little bit of everything and then some. And if you have started this series
and haven’t picked up this one yet, be sure to pick it up AND the Iron Knight
at the same time. Trust me; you’ll thank me for this. So, I’ll leave readers
with one question – if you have started or read this series, are you Team Ash or
Team Puck? Me, I’m an Ash girl, through and through.
