The Iron Queen

Thanks to NetGalley, I got to read this book early.

My thoughts:
Meaghan Chase is once again thrown into the world of the Fey trying to save the day. It may be too much to ask for her to save everything though but she is certainly going to try. I love how Meaghan grew in this book. She can now stand in a fight. She still stands up to everyone but has a little something behind that bravery now.

I was incredibly impressed with Ash as well. I’m not sure how anyone can be team Puck any longer. Ash opens up to Meaghan. He loves her and it shows. Don’t get me wrong, that ice Prince makes an appearance but he can’t stay mad at Meaghan. His character development was so enjoyable.

Puck did a good job of keeping everyone laughing. I was glad that he didn’t disappear into the Nevernever. How much fun could the Iron Fey series be without Puck?

And then there was Grimalkin. Who can forget the cat? I loved this character as much as ever. Julia does a great job of capturing the essence of a cat in the personality of Grimalkin. He still disappears when trouble appears and is still the one with the answers. He made the last line perfect without even being present!

The book had me in tears at times as well as beyond happy at other times. I enjoyed the twists and turns and only once wanted to throw the book. (What good book doesn’t deserve to be thrown at least once, right?) At times I wanted to yell at Meaghan and at other times I was so proud of her. And of course, I was thrilled that there will be a fourth book, The Iron Knight, Ash’s story. It’s about time he got more attention, Meaghan has had enough.

I gave this book 5 stars and I would recommend it to anyone. I have started getting my students as well as fellow teachers interesting in the series.

Enjoy the read!
