Review: Iron Knight (Iron fey #4) By Julie Kagawa

Iron KnightI might be a little biased. But before you roll your eyes out, hear me out.

Team Ash. I am definitely on his side, all the way. But for you Puck-lovers out there, it’s still A-Okay cause instead of having a Meghan heart Puck situation, this time it’s an Ash and Puck kind of love affair. Those two spend quite a lot of time together. You get to see what they’re like without Meghan and even before she existed. There are a lot of secrets revealed that were not addressed on previous books. Btw, this is Ash’s POV hence the solo book cover.

Engaging. This isn’t a surprise, since most of her (Julie Kagawa) works are innate when it comes to good writing. It’s her usual style that gets you to open the book and immerse yourself into the fantasy realm. Every chapter, my feelings and emotions get scattered; it’s all over the place! I have these mixed emotions and I have to pick them up, only to get the routine started for the next chapter or so.

Okay, this is the only book review I have for the whole series, which is crazy considering it’s the last book. But I was never into goodreads before, and I never even thought of sharing my opinions out in public or, worse, the Internet, but things change and now I’m here.

This is my favorite, numero uno, YA series/books. And that’s coming from a person who snobs a lot of YA and fantasy—it’s just not my genre. I try to read “beginner” type of fantasy because I find it difficult to appreciate it since it’s far from reality and I get very doubtful. But ever since I started reading this series, I realized how different it is compared to other genres—it stands out. This is what people call an “escape.” This is why there is such thing as “fiction.” And we owe it all to fantasy.

Rating: ✰✰✰✰✰

Do I like it: Is that even a question?

Recommended to: To people who are in search for the purpose of fiction

(Fullybooked, Paperback, P 599)

Below are books from the series.

Btw, brief 101 of what this series is about. This has something to do with Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream, wherein characters from the play are incorporated in the story including Puck, Oberon and Titania. The story follows a girl, Meghan, which is believed to be not as human as she appears. On a dramatic turn of event, his brother, Ethan, is captured and kidnapped. So then she is forced to a wild and one-of-a-kind adventure. (In other words, just read it)


Below are information about the first book, which is Iron King (Iron Fey #1) by Julie Kagawa

Publication: February 1st 2010 by Harlequin Teen (first published January 1st 2009)

From Goodreads:

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.


Waiting On Wednesday: Talon (Talon #1) by Julie Kagawa

Talon (Talon #1) by Julie Kagawa

Publication: October 28, 2014

From Goodreads:

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon’s newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember’s bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.
