Books I’ve Enjoyed: The Iron Fey Series
I loved this book so much. Puck’s wit definitely was a high point, but I also liked the budding relationships.
I adored this book so much more than I can really even verbalize.
The fey world and the human world are so vivid and I love how much it is grounded in reality by the descriptions of normal, every day things. It really helps you to imagine that a world like this really could be hidden right inside our own.
Although some of the early Meg/Ash stuff was getting on my nerves, I loved this book. One thing that also bothered me was how the important stuff from the bridge novella, Winter’s Passage, was also inserted into this book. I sort of feel like I wasted my money buying the novella.
Otherwise, this was a nice 2nd full installment in the series. Even though I didn’t like the angst between the lovers early on, I did like where they ended up. The ending was awesome, though a bit heartbreaking.
Puck is still one of my favorite characters(even though I’m not hoping for them to end up together), so I was glad when he showed back up, though I wish Meghan would be more considerate of his feelings.
The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved this book, I really did. I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed through parts of this book.
Many bits of it were very rewarding, regarding Meghan’s family relationship and her relationship with Ash.
I adored Ash in this book more than in any of the others.
I get that it isn’t ‘over’ and there is still one more book, and I loved how Meghan’s skills grew, but I constantly wanted to strangle her.
The fact that I feel so strongly about this book, shows how good it is and how well written it is and how vivid the characters are, but I just did not feel very satisfied with what happened.
