THE IRON QUEEN by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
Harlequin Teen, 2011
Young Adult Fantasy


Fans of the Iron Fey series are in for a treat with this one. In my opinion, it's the best book so far. Meghan's character grew in ways I'd been hoping for since book one, and also in ways I didn't expect. The love triangle between Meghan, Puck, and Ash reaches its boiling point. And the mystery behind her dad's disappearance when she was six is finally explained.

Plus there is a slew of new characters, new settings, and new drama. And the ending? Holy amazeballs, Batman, that was one awesome ride! Summer, Winter, and Iron face-off in every sense of the word. Can't say much more without giving anything away. Just... WOW.

If you haven't read this series yet, you are supremely missing out. This book ends with an epilogue that bridges into book four of the series, THE IRON KNIGHT, which looks to be just as delicious as the previous three... and it's told from Ash's point of view. Say what? Julie Kagawa, you are full of awesomesauce.

5 of 5 stars. Recommended for people who like fantasy, romance, combat, and fast-paced, intricate plots.
