Title: The Iron Queen
(The Iron Fey Series)
Author: Julie Kagawa
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.
I recently read the Iron Fey series and just had to write a post about it. The series follows the adventures of Meghan Chase, a half human/faery princess. During her time in the NeverNever, the land of the fey, she meets Ash, a handsome prince of the Unseelie Court. With Ash and Puck, aka Robin Goodfellow her best friend, she presses forward through challenges, gaining insight into heart’s desire and magical abilities.
For those of you who haven’t read Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series, you should check it out. This series was fun to read, but I wasn’t ready for The Iron Queen to end the way it did. I was holding my breath towards the end, wondering how it would play out.
The author posted information on her website about a fourth book in the series titled The Iron Knight which will be dedicated to the faery prince, Ash (I’m definitely a team Ash person). The Iron Knight will be a continuation from The Iron Queen from Ash’s point of view. The fourth book sounds interesting and I’ll watch for its release on October 25, 2011.
Readers will be happy to know that Summer’s Crossing, a FREE novella (until June 2012) in the Iron Fey series is available for download at enterthefaeworld.com.
A Midsummer’s Nightmare?
Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon’s right hand, bane of many a faery queen’s existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl’s death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone’s come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck’s help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.
