Review: Iron Knight by Julie Kawaga

Iron Knight by Julie Kawaga
Published Date: October 2011
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Grene: YA

The Story:
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.

My Review:  Wow, Ash.  Yep, I think I would love him too if he did that for me, what he did for Meghan Chase. 

The journey he goes on, he has many helping him out, Puck and Grimalkin, plus a person he never thought he'd see again.  But that's the only spolier I'll give you!!

I love this world that Julie Kawaga created.  I have always loved nature, and fairies, but this whole series has brought some insight into what others see around.  There are so many similarities I see between this series and real life.  But then again, it's like with almost any book, that you see into it more than maybe you should.  But in anycase, this is a great finish to the Iron Fey series!!  You won't be dissapointed!!

  1. I like hearing Ash's POV with his story. The relationship between him and Puck is one of the best bromances I've encountered.
