Review: The Iron Knight

The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)

The Iron Knight
Julie Kagawa
Publisher: HarlequinTeen
Release Date: October 25, 2011
Pages: 361

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 Chases--a half human, half few 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.
Withe the (unwelcome) company of his arch rival, 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, not 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. 
I am probably one of the only ones who isn't in love with this series. I like it, I do. But I am not as intense about it as other are. Nevertheless, I was excited to get back into the world and read the final installment of this series. 

This wasn't my favorite book int the series. I still liked it; it was very enjoyable. I just didn't think it had the same quirkiness as the others. 

The main reason of this is that the main character in this is Ash, not Meghan. I love Ash and loved getting inside his head. He was so heartbroken and my own heart went out to him. Although I missed Meghan, I did quite enjoy the story from Ashe's perspective. 

I love the world that Kagawa has created, and I was most excited to dive back into it. I loved the adventure in this book. Though it was serious at times, it was still really fun. 

I am very happy with the ending of the series. Though it wasn't my favorite, The Iron Knight was a good addition and ending the the Iron Fey series.
