Phew. So, another Iron Fey book. Let me say, that I seriously cried in the last few chapters. Only a little, but still. So heartwrenching. I did like it better than the first two books, I really felt the character development and the drama. However, for me it just didn't cross the line to a five star novel.
Basically, Meghan has to fight yet another Iron King, and let it be said that, to me, it was painstakingly obvious who that new Iron King was. But whatever. Meghan behaved quite dense at times, especially around Ash so I just kept thinking: Come on, not all 17-year-olds are that stupid!
But I think I fell in love with Ash a little. He's pretty dreamy, willing to sacrifice everything for Meghan. I feel like it's okay for him, since he is many hundreds of years old, so the sentiment is not as cheesy as if it came from, say, Meghan. (cough)
Oberon and Mab are starting to get on my nerves, but maybe with the outcome of The Iron Queen they'll start behaving a little better in "The Iron Knight", which I will start in a few hours.
But my favorite character in the entire series (if you don't count Ash) is defintiely Grimalkin. He reminds me a little of that cat in Alice in Wonderland, but I really like him and his sarcastic comments.
The ending of The Iron Queen was possibly a little ... too much. I would have accepted it as the end of the series, but since there is still one book left, it probably would have been better to make it a little less perfect/"thick".

Is crying in a dark corner while writing this review. Why?? Julie just broke my heart!!! The ending nooo.... okay breath, breath. Okay now for the review.
In the begining we see Ash and Meghan going to the human realm in order to live a normal human life (I can just imagine Ash, actually wait no I can't...) but... they are interrupted just as they arrive by the False Iron King trying to kidnap Meghan in order to obtain her power.
Meghan is growing up (soo proud of her :)) she's brave and loyal and I have to say she can kick ass.
I can't believe that after all they've been through the Fey would have the guts of asking from them yet another sacrifice, but there you are, that's Fey for you....
I've loved Ash from the begining (dreamy eyes) and Puck grew on my slowly but shurely, and now I can't decide which is my favorite, so I'll keep both of them^^
I can't wait to read Iron Knight!!!!

I found myself skipping pages. I could not get into this book and found it trying to be disney fairy tale, but with inappropriate juvenile language. There is a talking cat and spiders that says "my precious." Trying too hard to be epic like Lord of the Rings, but this book felt flat. The best part is the last? I never got there. Too boring to get me there. Skip Iron Queen. Go watch Labyrinth instead. 1-star because I'm angry with the overhype and review padding by bloggers who wanted to be on Harlequin Teen's freebie books list. I will never trust book bloggers who give Harlequin Teen books a gushing review ever again.

Call this clean? Meghan turned seventeen. She's an immature seventeen too who cries throughout Iron Queen. Ash is a character like so many other in Japanese cartoons. Watch Adult Swim or SyFy and you will see a Dime-a-dozen Ash characters. He is supposed to have been married and now is in love with a girl who just turned seventeen and have sex? What is Julie Kagawa and Harlequin Teen saying to teen girls? The author intended this for juveniles since "Awesome" is written in Iron Queen over 70 times. Was this the same book that bloggers read calling this epic and tearjerker. I'm mad at these bloggers who get free copies and gush about a book everyone else has to shell over $50 for (that's the cost of this whole series) when it is not that good. I would never trust what book bloggers call epic ever again.

Overhyped by bloggers who are ignorant of racial slam on Asians. Words cannot describe the offensiveness of Iron Queen. The author took the plots and characters from Japanese comic books and video games and call it her own. She change the characters to white ones instead of Japanese, but Meghan has Japaneses girl manners. Ash is like Japanese soap opera guys. Nothing new, except she made them white. She even misuses Japanese culture and intermix Japanese with Chinese customs. Shame on making Meghan a white blonde girl with Japanese girl traits just to sell books but sell out the Japanese and Chinese cultures.
