Rating: LOVED

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.

After I turned the last page of The Iron Daughter I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the third installment in the series. Now that I’ve electronically flipped the last page of The Iron Queen, I don’t know how I will wait for the fourth book that I didn’t know of until a few weeks ago. Julie Kagawa must. write. faster. Yup, The Iron Queen is that good.

Once again, Meghan Chase is dragged into the Nevernever by the false king. The Nevernever is quickly detoriating and the faeries will soon fade into nothingness. Unless if Meghan can kill the false king. Both the Summer and Winter courts have no one else but Meghan to rely on. Their lives lie in her hands.

In my opinion, The Iron Queen is the best out of all three of The Iron Fey books. The ending is really nice – beautiful, sad, and happy at the same time. Meghan’s character has really matured since we first met her, and I like her character more than ever. And of course, there’s Puck and Grim, who add the perfect touch of humor and lighten up a lot of the most dire situations at the most unexpected times.

I love the cover of this one. Its brighter than the other two. And the title fits Meghan perfectly. You’ll have to read The Iron Queen to know what I’m talking about. The release date’s not too far away, so be sure to pick it up on February 1st! You won’t regret it ;)!

  1. So glad you loved this one. I happen to know I have the first two under the Christmas tree and can't wait to read them. It's good to hear that this book is even better than those two! Thanks so much for the review!

  2. I have sat down twice to read this and kept getting interrupted. Now that Thanksgiving is over and kids back in college, I can get the time to pile up and finish it. I enjoyed the novella so much and have really been looking forward to the Iron Queen for awhile. Glad to see that you enjoyed it.

  3. So glad you think this one is the best of the 3! I can't wait to read it, everyone's reviews have been glowing:) I love that Meghan matures with each book, I love when that happens with characters:) Great review Hafsah!
