TBR TUESDAY: The Iron Knight by Julia Kagawa

Okay, so first let me be honest here. I avoided this series for a looong time. I mean... come on, faeries? Way over done. And anyone that knows me knows I am not into those prissy elitists with sparkly wings. Thank God The Iron Fey is SO not that kind of faeries--I found that out the day I needed something different to read and decided to bite the bullet and order The Iron King. I've been following Harlequin Teen on Twitter forever, and I figured I'd listen to all the hype about this series. Let me tell you, I am SO glad I did! I devoured the first two. I need to read The Iron Queen ASAP.

From the enterthefaeryworld.com website (where you can see the superstupendousabsolutelyfreakingamazing BOOK TRAILER!):

Ash is about to learn something that will change everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

From the Harlequin Blog(where you can also read an excerpt!!):

My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn’darkmyr Tallyn.

I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court.

And I am dead to her.

My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…

To cold 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.

With the unwelcome company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end—a quest to find a way to honor his vow to stand by Meghan’s side.

To survive in the Iron Realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

  1. I loved the first three books in the series, but they are intense. For that reason I've been dragging my feet when it comes to starting on this one.

  2. I happened to be lucky enough to read an ARC of this one and OMG! It's so good. Great choice for TBR Tuesday, AE. I honestly think it's the best of the entire series. I can't wait until it comes out so I can read it over and over again.

  3. Okay, Ann... I'm not much of a faery girl, but you might have sold me on this one... I'm thinking I'll check my library to see if they've got it available. Thanks for the recommendation!

  4. Envisioning Ash like the cover model means I'm going to have to jump back into the series. I enjoyed the first one, but haven't made it to the rest yet. :(

  5. Oh I love this series too and the Iron Knight is the best of the four books! Glad you joined the ranks of the Iron Fey lovers!


  6. After reading all of the previous books in the series, I couldn't wait to get to this one. The story has been wonderful and kept me wanting more. I am so glad that Julie Kagawa decided to do this 4th book, and it is fantastic in Ash's POV. This was a great conclusion to a very excellent series. I was so wrapped up in this book, and enjoyed getting to know Ash from inside his own head.


Breaths that matter...
