Iron Queen; Julie Kagawa + Giveaway






















About the Iron Fey Series:


In The Iron King, debut author Julie Kagawa introduced a new, evolved order of faery. In less than twenty-four hours Meghan Chase will be sixteen. Countless stories, songs and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset. But Meghan suspects that it won’t be that way for her. After all, Meghan has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagine.


In The Iron Daughter, Kagawa explores love and betrayal in a faery world gone mad. A half faery princess, half human girl becomes a pivotal part of a deadly conflict between two warring factions of faery.



The winds of war gather in Kagawa's newest novel, The Iron Queen. Meghan Chase thought they’d left Faery behind forever, but pressing matters cause the three exiles to be summoned to war. A new alliance is made, along with a few contracts, of course, and Meghan, half Summer faery princess, half human, is pressed to choose Fey over her mortal beginnings. Will she abandon her human heart for an iron will that will help her survive? For as Meghan can confirm—in real life, unlike books, faery tales don’t necessarily have happy endings.

My Review


Have you read any good series lately? It became hard to find an original series that has some depth and worthy written on the pages. Thank Heavens for Julie Kagawa and her imagination.  I was given the chance to read the entire Iron Fey series. It was awesome. Each book seemed to make it just a bit better then the last. This is not a series you can just pick up the currently released and read through like you know what's going on. I do recommend reading the first 2 before.  You wouldn't want to miss out anyways.

    Meghan being the Main Character was awesome. She managed to portray a strong heroine fighter and a quick mind. I FINALLY enjoyed a female character without shaking my head in disgust. Did I forget to mention the guys? I did?  Well there is a few worthy of swooning. You can't go wrong if you're Meghan Chase. The battles are also note-worthy. I found the action right on. I don't care for books with to much or to little of fighting. I guess there is a fine line for me. The ending of the Iron Queen was a cliff hanger but you can love them or hate them. I am loving it...After all that means there will be another addition to the series.
