The Iron Knight Review

The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

Find it and pre-order it on Amazon:

The Iron Knight (Harlequin Teen) [Paperback]

Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.

Unless he can earn a soul.

To cold, emotionless 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 solemn 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. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.

And then Ash learns something that changes 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.

What I gave it: 5/5 Five out of Five!!!!!!! This book doesn't even have words for it!

Where I got It: NetGalley

My Thoughts:
This. Book. Ended. Perfect. I am a huge fan of this series and I am so glad Harlequin Teen approved me to get an ARC of this book! The author wrapped up this book up perfectly, with just a nice amount of loose strings that will both leave us happy with the ending, and hungrily wanting more! I would love to go on and tell you guys about this book, but unfortunately I can't, But to this people out there who are fans of this series, this book will not disappoint! About 1/4 of the way through I was baffled. My jaw literally dropped to the floor, and my mind was being pulled a million miles an hour in different directions because of this shocking thing. It was that big, and just made you think back on the other book. There was basically every type of emotion in The Iron Knight, from laughs to crying. It tugs on you're heart strings, and makes you wonder. Julie Kagawa has made these characters so real and complex, it feel as if they book is happening in real life and you're just watching. We read this book from Ash's point of view so we get greater insight from him, and learn some big things that make him who he is. We learn so much about Ash, that at some points I cringed into myself because I wondered how he could live with him self. But the last book The Iron Queen and this one have earned a top place in my favorite of 2011, and are going to be one of the first books I buy, once I get some money. This book, and the rest of the series is a must read for Fey lovers out there, and I'd suggest you go out and buy them!
