Review: Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

Name: Iron Knight
Author: Julie Kagawa
UK release date: Out now!
UK Publisher: Mira

Summary: Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.

Unless he can earn a soul.

To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.

Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.

Review: Its never easy when a book series you fall in Love with comes to an end. When you have read about and fallen in Love with these characters over the years and then have to say goodbye... Nothing lasts forever but I can say that while the Iron Fey series lasted it was one of the best journeys ever!

Ash is back and even more amazing than ever. I think Julie writing the last book in his POV was an awesome move and one that really paid off. If you loved Ash in the first books then you haven't read anything yet until you start this novel. His bravery, his handsome face, and just an amazing prince to be around made this book such an enjoyable read.

While there were some real shockers and some heart-wrenching but yet exciting moments I can honestly say Julie can write her butt off!  The plot is once again just as amazing as the rest of the books in the series. It was cutting edge, suspenseful and sometimes spine chilling. I think Julie has yet again written a jump out of your seat novel. Such a fascinating memorable read that I will never forget.

Julie has created word images so vivid that it is almost like watching a movie. She takes you for a romp through NeverNever with Ash, Puck, Grimalkin and some shocking characters you didn't see coming themselves in a action packed suspenseful event that had me second guessing things and crying my eyes out.

There are few new enticing characters in this novel I would be here all day if I talked about them all but I will say this: If you like heroic, challenging, attractive and amazing characters then this is the book for you.

As I say goodbye to these characters I want to say thanks to Julie for bringing these characters to my imagination and I cannot wait to read what else she has in-store! So until next time.....
