Review: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Paperback, 384 pages
Published February 1st 2011 by Harlequin Teen 
The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey #3)

My name is Meaghan Chase.

I thought it was over.That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stay by my side. Drag me into the core of a conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back

What a book! Julie Kagawa has done it again! I actually finished reading The Iron Queen a couple of days ago and decided to take my time writing my review. I want to scream at the top of lungs at how good this series is. This was an phenomenal addition to her Iron Fey series. 

The Iron Queen is so full of action and different type of emotions that I was a mess reading it. And I mean that in a very good way. If it wasn’t one thing, it was another. It was nice to finally see Ash and Meg’s relationship grow and see how strong the two of them became. Together they really were ONE.  Their chemistry felt so real and I couldn’t help but feel jealousy towards Meg LOL. Ash is just perfect in every way. Throughout the first two books you find out that Meg is always worried about everyone else but herself. She has such a huge heart and in The Iron Queen her character does not change. 

I actually bought the first two books in the series for my cousin to read because I just had to share this series with someone else. Someone who can scream with me at how GREAT/AMAZING/ AWESOME and FABULOUS this series is! This has to be my favorite out of the series so far. When I finished reading The Iron Queen I was very upset at the ending. To my understanding, The Iron Queen was supposed to be the final book in the series. So I was a little confused with the ending, but then I find out that there is actually going to be another book in the series from Ash’s point of view. Which totally made sense and now I LOVE the ending LOL. The next book will be called The Iron Knight and I cannot wait to read it. Every book that Julie Kagawa writes for this series just gets better and better. I can only imagine what’s to come! 

Seriously, how many times can I tell you how much I LOVE a book? LOL Well I love it! And I think everyone should add this series to their TBR pile.
