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.
Okay, I’m not going to lie… I was less than pleased with this book’s ending. THANK GOD Kagawa wrote a fourth book, or, seriously, I would have thrown something. Why? Because this ending wasn’t satisfying. In fact, it was the opposite. It was gut wrenching, rip your heart out, sad. It left a hole in my heart. I’m serious. It really did. But… I can’t tell you why. Just rest assured, the fourth, and final book in the series, The Iron Knight, comes out tomorrow… and it will put some balance back into your world. I promise.
Now… this is a very well written series. Kagawa has a very vivid imagination, and I truly love her writing and her characters. I found this novel to be more on par with The Iron King, meaning I liked this one better than The Iron Daughter, and I still stand by previous statements… Puck, by far, is still my favorite. I love the correlations between him and Shakespeare that Kagawa throws in throughout the series, and I love his nonchalant, cunning ways. He’s a great guy, and I really think Meghan would be better off with him, however, Ash has started to grow on me a bit. Finally, I know.
Yes, I still find Ash moody and overbearing, but his other side seems to come out more in this novel, and I’m beginning to see what Meghan sees in him. He can be nice, caring… though he still seems to be a little despondent at times, making rash decisions that caused me to keep backtracking and renouncing my feelings for him. However, by the end of this novel it became apparent that he truly does care about Meghan, hence my ultimate hatred of the ending. However, that’s all I’m going to say about that. Three and a half stars.
