The Iron Fey
review 1: Can you believe that the third story in The Iron Fey series is more affecting than the others? I was almost drawn to tears at the end! We see Meghan trying and failing to wield her Summer and Iron glamours (powers) and her constant worries over the land of the fey, because as the Nevernever dies, so do the faeries within it. She might consider herself to be a human and wish for things to return to normal, but the fact remains that she belongs to this new world and her heart is set on some of the beings in it. Grim is back with a vengeance! Yay! And there are crazier characters to accompany him, like Razor the eccentric gremlin. The gremlins remind me of the houselves from HP, slaves of the iron master. Ironhorse died in the last book, but I was glad to see his 'spirit' aga... morein, which was sweet but a leeetle creepy.Puck is around as always, as is Ash, but the character that showed the most change and strength was of course Meghan. In Iron Queen she realises that she can only expect the boys to protect her for so long. In the end she needs to learn how to fight, and I enjoyed seeing how she takes charge of her situation and makes her own decisions despite being the half breed in a strange land. Ash’s belief in her is inspiring, and if I was unsure about being Team Ash before, there is no doubt now!Now for the heartbreak... We all knew it was a love that wasn't meant to be, but having it confirmed is far worse. I won't spoil it too much but I hope Ash keeps his promise!Favourite Quotes:"I don't see how you mortals do it, these feelings you must endure. They will ruin you, in the end..." [Puck]I couldn't let him go. Gods forgive me if I was being selfish, but I wanted nothing more than to stay with him forever. [Meghan]"For the record," Grimalkin stated as we ventured, single file, into the black, "I do not think this is a good idea/ But, as no one listens to the cat anymore, I will have to wait until we are completely lost to say 'I told you so.'""Why do you think I brought you that creature, human? To keep up my stalking skills? I assure you, they are quite adequate already. Please attempt to use the brain I know is hidden somewhere in that head..." [Grim]"Do try to stay out of trouble, human. I will be terribly annoyed if you manage to get yourself killed." [Grim]"I love you, Meghan Chase," he murmured against my skin. "For the rest of my life, however long we have left. I'll consider it an honor to die beside you." [Ash]
review 2: 3.5starsAs always I have to say Julie Kagawas world building is just so amazing and captivating!I found this book a lot slower than the first 2 and actually didn't pick up till about page 200 for me. But, the last 150 pages were just WOW!!! I would have bumped this to a 4.5stars if it wasn't slow for a majority of the book. However, that is not to say that it was bad..it was still amazing, but it just hard to grab my attention. Can't wait to pick up The Iron Knight!! less
