    One thought on “The Iron Queen”

    1. Of all the books in 'The Iron Fey' series, 'The Iron Queen' is my favorite. This book is pivotal and takes the story in an entirely new direction. Not only is this book filled with action and adventure, but I finally got to see the romance between Meghan and Ash evolve.Not only does the relationship between Meghan and Ash grow, but Meghan undergoes a great deal of self-discovery and growth as an individual. 'The Iron Queen' really is Meghan's "coming of age" book. She grows stronger, both physic [...]

    2. OMG! That freaking ending! I can't even people, the FEELSI CAN NOT believe I have had these books for so long and they are so freaking awesome! I have so many books hanging out here with me that I haven't gotten to yet. How many more gems do I have? Being able to love so many genres of books is just amazing. Yes, you get the ones you don't like from time to time, but mostly they are so wonderful. I love to be taken away to all of these places and it doesn't matter if someone else loves the same [...]

    3. So, this is it. Wow!I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved this book. I know, this has been said many times before but I have to repeat it. This was epic!The Iron Queen picks up right after Meghan and Ash were exiled and tells the story about Meghan’s last fight against the False Iron King and her attempt to save the Nevernever. This was an epic story about bravery, loyalty, friendship, true love as well as despair, loss and sacrifices.All my beloved characters were back in this book [...]

    4. Ah, I’ve finally come to the end of this series (sort of). It’s quite clear to me that I really am not a fan of Julie Kagawa’s writing style but I’m always hopeful. Sadly, I have resigned myself to believing that this is not going to change, not now and not ever.There was nothing really offensive to me in this book as they were in the previous ones. The story moved at a decent enough clip, I suppose, though I find myself having to force myself to finish it because her prose is just so dr [...]

    5. 2.5This is way better than the previous installment, but since some chapters, though not too many, just three or four, were so boring as to practically compel me to skim through more than actually read them, I can't honestly bring myself to rate this 3 stars.“I wished that, for once, faery tales –real faery tales, not Disney fairy tales– would have a happy ending.”I wished that too, but Meghan didn't die, so, adios happy ending. There'll be other occasions.Okay, I'm usually not this hars [...]

    6. Everyone, this book BLEW MY MIND.0_0AmazingILLIANT.OVERALL, IF I DIED WHILE READING THIS, THEN IT MUST BE A GOOD THING.There was action adventure. I had a heart failure at the endingyah.But this had action, (meaning Ash and Meghan being badass) There was romance, (meaning they kissed and made me die multiple times)There was STUPID Oberon(meaning WHO'S GONNA F*CKING KICK HIS ASS FOR ME?!)And there was laughter, peace and (view spoiler)[ poor Puck ending up with nobody*sob* (hide spoiler)]Haha, YO [...]

    7. If you have not read this series please do! I am so very in love with it! This installment was probably my favorite of the three.I think one of my favorite parts of reading a series is watching the characters develop. And The Iron Fey series was an excellent example of that. Ash proved himself to be more than an ice cold heart, Puck's incessant mischief even gives way to seriousness and Meghan, once a insecure school girl, find courage beyond her means. It was powerful, I even cried goosebumps a [...]

    8. Final rating: 4/5 starsSo how the hell do i start this review???? Lemme see: A long, long, time ago, in a fae land not so far away, nevernever was under an attackNope, sounds like "Weird Al" Yankovic's song . So um lemme see. i know! With an interview!!The guest of this interview today is the book "The Iron Queen", for short IQ. IQ: So let's start from the beginning, shall we?ME: Sure :DIQ: So, for starters, how do you feel about me?ME: You were amusing, fun and lovely book, but i hated one thi [...]

    9. I.Am.Speechless. This is easily one of the best series I have had the pleasure to read. I read all of the books back to back and let me tell you! Nothing ever prepared me for this epic adventure let alone the ending! I struggled to actually sit and write a review for the first two books, because I was so caught upon the adventure. I knew there was no way I could write a review until I read all three of the books. So instead of just reviewing The Iron Queen, this will be an Iron Fey review. Got i [...]

    10. My review can also be found on Reading Lark: readinglark/2012/P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N. in EPIC proportions!BRILLIANT! I read the netgalley of The Iron Queen before the book was released (thank you Netgalley and HarlequinTeen!) it was so good I immediately had to reread the series up to and including The Iron Queen again. I am still blown away! Julie Kagawa is a master story teller. She has the ability to paint the scene with her words and describe the characters so richly, it's like a movie is playi [...]

    11. Beware of spoilers!This book completely flipped my views on the characters, the plot, the concepts, etc. I cannot believe how much I Pucking love this book. (view spoiler)[See what I did there. (hide spoiler)] It's insane. The characters I used to think of as annoying, clingy, boring, and dull, NOW I LOVE THEM ALL! My excitement for these amazing, dynamic, brilliantly written characters is unfathomable. I don't know how I'm going to write this review. I feel like such a moron because organizatio [...]

    12. The Iron Queen is one of the best fantasy books I've had the pleasure to read. Julie Kagawa took me on a journey that I can only describe as fantastical. The characters are incredibly realistic; vivid and rich with depth and passion. The world she creates is described so minutely that you can visualize yourself with Meghan right down to the acrid smell of iron. The emotions the story evokes run the gamut. This is one powerful story that deserves the highest praise. Ash and Meghan have been exile [...]

    13. The false king is still trying to take over the Nevernever and he needs one more thing to accomplish his goal: the power of the Iron King. The land is slowly getting poisoned, more and more fey are dying and something needs to be done soon. Meghan Chase, Ash and Puck are still banished from their homes, but that will soon chance once Oberon and Mab realize they need their help to take down the false king. They come to an agreement: The trio will no longer be banished, if they can defeat the fals [...]

    14. Now,I don't know if I'm in love or if I'm pissed. Oh well, I guess I can be both, right? RIGHT?I don't know if I should rate it 4, 4.5, 5 stars. No. Idea. Truth to be told, that was amazing. Meghan, Puck, Razor, Grim, Ash, and all the creepy little bugs and other creatures You're full of flaws, infuriating, you made me laugh, swoon, yell, cry, hope, dream, smile. I hated you. I love you all.This book is far from flawless, and contrary to many, that's not my favorite (nah, that's the first, I kno [...]

    15. ★Mini review: This book was epic; read it.★(!Minor Spoilers!)Well, well, well, Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, we finally know your True Name. Kidding, it's kinda cool actually. But I prefer Ash. Let's talk about the whole Ash-being-Meghan's-knight thing. I want Meghan to be able to kick ass on her own, so I wasn't entirely sure how to feel about that at first.I needn't have worried, though, because Meghan soon proved just how much she has grown since the first book. Who needs a knight when you're [...]

    16. The Iron Queen continues off the last time we saw Meghan and Ash. Exiled from Nevernever and into the mortal world. Everyday normal possibilities are discussed and maybe, just maybe Meg and Ash can live in peace. Yeah, if it was only that easy.The False King is still after Meghan and will do everything in his power to have her, for she possesses the key that will give him total power over the Iron realm.Join Meghan, daughter of the Summer king. Ash, her beloved and Winter prince. Puck, comical g [...]

    17. I knew it was coming but still was not prepared for the ending of this book. I love how it's all coming together. Puck just leaps off the page. The gremlins are so cute! This one is my favorite of the series so far. I adore Ash.

    18. I enjoyed both Iron King and Iron Princess, but IRON QUEEN is definitely the clincher. As can be told from my waxing on an on about Ash (see below if you don’t mind spoilers,) I am a big fan of his: Initially, I was all for Puck, but events in Iron Princess and Iron Queen have turned me into a card carrying member of team Ash. Though he is a big reason for my loving the series, he is not the only reason. Another reason is the fact that I cried. Now, I cry at the drop of a hat, but the events i [...]

    19. OhGOD! :O Face expression after reading this book:This freaking book had so many twists and changes, I am still shocked right now. Its really hard for me to dissolve all the book, especially the ending, inside me, right now. Things happened so quickly in this book, I was left with a shocked face in the end. Thus proving this book was total win.Lemme just say this. The Iron Queen was full of epicness. (if thats even a word) And I just want the damn fourth book right now! xD Things I loved in this [...]

    20. 4.5 starsThis was just as good as the first time I read it years back. It's so much fun following the characters (especially Ash, who's amazing) and watching Meghan grow into someone stronger (finally). Plus, the world-building is original and intriguing - I never felt bored while reading this.Well, it's onto re-reading the final book!

    21. 4.5 OH SHIT StarsOh nooooo.what the hell is that ending??Finally, as soon as Ash and Meghan find an ounce of happinessy sadness resultsH.Loving this and can't wait to see how this plays out in the next one!

    22. Favourite Quote: "His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. “I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I’m alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away.” One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. “I guess I should’ve warned you that I have a slight possessive streak.” The Iron Fey series is one of my all time favourites. So I was extremely exci [...]

    23. 2011: The third installment of my very favorite fairy and steampunk series featuring my favorite cat ever and the cutest Gremlin alive I loved The Iron King and just liked The Iron Daughter. The typical consequence following the law of paranormal trilogies would be that I tolerated The Iron Queen - for old times' sake. But no - I got to be surprised (although I sometimes feel so unsurprisable): In most parts I liked The Iron Queen almost as much as The Iron King and in some parts (i.e. the numb [...]

    24. *Actually 4.5 stars**No spoilers*Not writing a big review for this one. So one problem I've had with this series is that it's failed to leave me gobsmacked. Don't get me wrong, it is really good, and I like everything that happens more or less, but after I put the books down after a reading session it isn't leaving me sat holding my head together to keep my mind from blowing. Does that make sense? This one was gonna be another 4 star book until the ending. The end battle scene was just so great [...]

    25. This.was.epic!!! Simply epic. Julia Kagawa wrote an incredible third book in the Iron Fey series. I laughed and I cried - a lot! And I devoured every second of this book.Read Review at Bewitched Bookworms Iron Queen starts with Ash and Meghan being cast out of Nevernever and talking about what to do next. What live to life - a Fey and a Half Breed, what future could they have in the human world? When they reach Meghan's home, she's scared since it's been a year she was home. We don't have to wai [...]

    26. 4/5 🌟Dieser Teil hat mir bislang aus der Reihe am besten gefallen!Die Charaktere haben sich in eine tolle Richtung weiter entwickelt und die Beziehungen zwischen Ash, Meghan und Puck haben mir auch echt gut gefallen. Ich bin schon auf den 4. Teil gespannt!

    27. It’s strange how a journey can change you, what you can learn from it. ~Meghan, The Iron Queen~Meghan, wow you grew up. I still wanted to smack you sometimes, but I loved you. You showed me how important it is to fight for what's yours. No matter what's the cost. I adored your courage and hope. You're not a 16 years old teenage girl anymore. You're 17 now, and you're a warrior. This was my story, our story. I would find a way for us both to live, to be happy.Ash, I'd thought I couldn’t love [...]

    28. 4.5 stars How I enjoyed this book! I’d say it’s my favourite so far, but I have my hopes up for the fourth book, because so far my big problem with these books is one single person. Meghan. God. How she annoys the crap out of me. In this book she was slightly better I have to give her that. At least she wasn’t crying every five pages as usual. That’s an improvement. But she still is one of the most annoying characters I read about so far. Even though all that, this book was super awesome [...]

    29. I learned that love can transcend race and time, and that it can be beautiful and perfect and worth fighting for but also fragile and heartbreaking, and sometimes sacrifice is necessary. That sometimes it's you against the world, and there are no easy answers. That you have to know when to hold ond when to let go.God. Damn. It. Damn you, Julie Kagawa! What. Was. THAT?! That is not one, but two, TWO series where she has literally (I DO MEAN LITERALLY) killed me with the endings at the pique of th [...]
