The Iron Queen

8685612Goodreads Synopsis:    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.

My Thoughts:

-    THIS WAS AWESOME! The ending is SO epic! This is definitely my favorite in the series. 

-    I had a total girly gushing moment when Ash became Meghan's knight. 

-    I really love that Meghan learned how to fight. Her whole character development has been awesome. She is so strong and confident now. She doesn't need to rely on Ash or Puck, and I think she grew more in this book than she did in the previous two. 

-    Ash was getting a bit too possessive and protective, and it was making me gag and roll my eyes, but the issue was addressed, which surprised me. I'm really impressed that Ash and Meghan hashed that out. They respect and love each other. Their relationship rocks!  

-    I think it is really unfair to keep bringing Ariella up. Okay, we get that it was a hard thing for Ash, now move on! Bringing up old girlfriends is never a good idea in a new relationship.

-    I had no idea how the battle between the Fey and the Iron kingdom would be solved. I was surprised at the end, and I love being surprised.

-    My heart aches for Ash! Dang it Meghan!!

-    I liked learning more about the Iron Kingdom, and I have a new found respect for it. Obviously it wasn't going to go away, but it isn't evil either. The gremlins were fun.

-    The false king's castle is totally Howl's castle. 

-    Puck kinda bugged me in this book. His jokes go a little too far, and he was a major third wheel. 

-    The battles were a thrill. It reminded me of some of the Lord of the Ring battles. I loved the chaos, and I think the author did a nice job of writing the action scenes. 

-    Oh the ending! I could feel my heart thumping in my chest, and I had to remind myself to breathe. AH! I'm dying! I need the next book NOW!

  1. This is as far as I got in the series. I didn't read past the third book. I just never made time and started to read a lot of other books. I really do enjoy the series though and she get back into reading it.
