Review- the Iron Knight


The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)


Title: The Iron Knight
Author: Julie Kagawa


Summary:
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


Review:
I am SO glad I finally read this series! The entire series was great, and this book just was the icing on the cake!

The Iron Knight is told, not in Meghans POV like the first 3 books, but in Ash’s POV. You follow him as he goes on this crazy journey to try and find a way to become mortal and gain a soul so that he can stay with Meghan in the Iron Realm- a place most fey cannot go.

He, along with Puck and Grimalkin (and even the Big Bad Wolf and a surprise guest-someone we thought was dead) try to find a way to the end of the world where he will have to face some terrifying challenges to earn a soul. On the way, they encounter many strange and frightening fey that attempt to stop them.

The story had everything. A moral about what it means to be human- weakness, conscience, mortality, and how even a human (someone with no fey powers) can overcome everything with the right amount of heart and soul. There was non stop action.

Even the romance was there. Though I will say I was surprised Kagawa tried to incorporate a triangle, even when we all know how much Ash loves Meghan. That being said, at first I hated how the story was going and was disappointed with the entry of this girl until I realized I really liked knowing the history of her and her story. (sorry I cant say much without spoiling it. )

I also loved that we got more of Ash’s history when he was earning his conscience back, as he had to relive every mistake and wrong doing he ever did.

I loved everything about this book. I can find NO downside.

  1. I absolutely loved The Iron King, but I hated The Iron Queen. I might read the Iron Knight just for Ash.

  2. Great review! I finally read the first book and while it was a little disappointing (I don't really like Meghan) I do want to read the rest of the series.
