You cannot help but love the dynamics between Kagawa’s characters! You want to root for them and see them win! But the ending of The Iron Queen just broke my heart! I wanted to see Ash be with Megan they deserved it after everything they went through! And of course the one and only Puck I did start out rooting for him in this little triangle but I think he is just friend zoned for life here! Lol
I liked that The Iron Knight brought Ash and Pucks full story to light and see them work together. This book though had great action scenes and was funny at times more than the other books were, it was also moody almost self broody. But that comes with a story about Ash! Besides all that I would have liked to see more of what happens after Ash’s journey. Luckily there was a short novella called The Iron Prophecy to give you a little heads up on what goes on after Ash and a Megan are together again. Good reads all around!
My Rating: 3Stars
My name – my True Name – is Ashallayn’ darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…
To cold faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.
Then Meghan Chase – a half human, half fey slip of a girl – smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.
With the unwelcome company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end – a quest to find a way to honor his vow to stand by Meghan’s side.
To survive in the Iron Realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.
