Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen (Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third book in the Iron Fey series and definitely my favourite so far. The only negative I have is that the fourth book, Iron Knight isn't due to be released for ages!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC for review to be able to read this one a little early and hope I will have the same opportunity with Iron Knight or the wait will kill me...

The Iron Queen picks up right where the Iron Daughter left off and is even more action packed. It also has more romance and heart wrenching decisions to be made by Meghan- who has grown and matured drastically through the series. She still has lingering insecurities but when needed she shoves them aside and makes the best decisions she can at the time. When she steps up to it, she's definitely a force to be reckoned with!

Some of her most difficult decisions are made for the 'greater good' and the decision to release Ash from his vow when she thinks she is going to die is definitely one of those. and would have been a tearjerker if I was more of a cryer...

Grimalkin remains mysterious and pops up just when he is needed throughout the book. I really hope Iron Knight will shed some light on exactly what he is and his role in the bigger picture as I am intrigued.

Plus there's a healthy dose of Ash and Puck throughout the book to keep a girl happy!

Another great installment in a fantastic series. If you haven't read them yet you really should give them a go!

The Iron Queen is due for release in Feb 2011.
