From the limitless imagination of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Kagawa, return to the world of The Iron Fey.
In less than twenty-four hours I'll be seventeen. Although, technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in. In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself. MY NAME IS MEGHAN CHASE. 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. Don't miss the first book in Julie Kagawa's highly anticipated new series, SHADOW OF THE FOX, AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2, 2018 "Julie Kagawa is one killer storyteller."
--MTV's Hollywood Crush blog "The Iron King has the...enchantment, imagination and adventure of... Alice in Wonderland, Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, but with lots more romance."
--Justine magazine "A full five-stars to Julie Kagawa's The Iron Daughter. If you love action, romance and watching how characters mature through heart-wrenching trials, you will love this story as much as I do."

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".show more

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!!!!show more

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 more

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 more

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 more

The Iron Fey became easely my favorite series. It contains an intelligent heroine, a sexy Ice Prince, and cool fairies. The Iron Queen is the third book of this series, and I absolutely loved it. Meghan and Ash are together in the "human world". Meghan is excited and scared to come back with her family, but she also knows how difficult it's for Ash to be here with her. It's almost impossible for them to be there. Ash is very in love with Meghan but also feels sad about leaving his world. But just when Meghan is about to reunite with her family, they are thrown again into the fairies world. I was looking forward for them to came back. I knew it was impossible for them to live the happily ever after with the humans and I was expecting more of the Iron Fey. There was a war waiting for them at the Faeries world, and the Summer court and Winter court have made an agreement to fight together against the Iron. But they are loosing, and Meghan might be the only one to save them I'm going to focus more on the characters before I give more spoilers. I have always been Team Ash (maybe I waver a little bit at The Iron Daughter) and of course I loved Ash and Meghan's relationship. Finally they could be together! But I was still missing Puck and I was happy to see him again. Also, Meghan has become one of my favorite heroines. At first she was naive and sometimes too weak, but in this book I met a new Meghan, who grew up and was brave, smart and strong, and finally took the reins of her life. I read this book fast, and I would have read it faster if I didn't have to study. The journey Meghan, Ash, Puck and even Grimalkin (I love you!! *fan mode*) had to made was epic. I knew it was difficult and someone was probably going to die. It was funny and sad, I laughed and cried, and I couldn't believe the ending (perfect but still unbelievable). Obviously I can't wait to read the next one, The Iron King, Ash's story. Overall, it was amazing! I can possible express how awesome is Julie Kagawa's story, and if you haven't read this series, you should! You are going to love more
