Memorable Quote: “But, as no one listens to the cat anymore, I will have to wait until we are completely lost to say ‘I told you so.”
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.
Every book I read in this series makes me love it even more. The characters are awesome, the plot fantastic, and the entire thing is highly addicting. As soon as I started reading The Iron Queen, I couldn’t put it down. It was non-stop action, romance, and humor. Puck would have me laughing one moment, then Meghan would be in a battle, keeping me on the edge of my seat. I never knew what was going to come next, and I loved that.
I’m Team Puck all the way. He’s adorable, and loveable in every way. The Iron Queen did make me like Ash a lot more-not that I didn’t like him as a character beforehand, but it took until this third installment for me to think of him as someone worthy of rivaling Puck.
I don’t mind books that don’t seem to have any filler space in them, no scenes that sound randomly placed and useless. However, a few points of the novel seemed rushed and not thoroughly explained. I would have liked for things to slow down a bit, just to give me a chance to get used to whatever happened or was going to happen. This didn’t annoy me enough to detract from my enjoyment, it’s just something that I noticed about the book.
The Iron Fey series is one of my all time favorites, and I’m so excited for the fourth book. I didn’t even know there would be another until I reached the end of this one, and that killed me. I can’t stand the wait. I’ve never been the most patient person, and this definitely doesn’t help. But I get to see more of my favorite characters, and that makes it worth it!
The Iron Queen is an awesome book that I really recommend. This is a great series, and the best that focuses on fairies that I’ve ever read. I give this third book 5/5 stars. It was amazing!
