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.
Things are coming to a head in The Iron Queen, the third installment of the Iron Fey series as Meghan finds her dangerous adventure in the never never is not quite finished. She and her friends realize a new enemy arises to take over the faerie realm, destroying the old faeries to make way for the new. Meghan is once again thrust into a nearly impossible mission to save all of faerie even though her relationship with the race is on shaky ground. Being the awesome character that she is, Meghan puts her misgivings aside to tackle this new foe head on.
Like its predecessors The Iron Queen was an amazing book that left me captivated. From the characters, to the world building and the plot everything was well developed. The tangled romance between Ash, Meghan & Puck grew even more intense as they each grew into their characters and figured out what they really needed and what the difference was between loving someone and being in love.
Julie Kagawa has a gift at creating awesomely unique stories with something new and exciting happening at every turn leaving me breathless with anticipation at what will happen next. As the world of never never gets deeper explained we learn more fascinating new stories and creatures.
I really enjoyed stepping into Kagawa’s world and I can’t wait for the next installment where we get to see never, never through the eyes of Ash in his own journey in The Iron Knight. Now that will definitely be entertaining.
