Sarah Reviews: The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa

Hey guys! I know, 2 reviews in one week! It has to be a miracle...Anyway, the next series I'm reviewing is The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa. This series is four books, The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen, and The Iron Knight. The first 3 books are in Megan Chase's POV and the last one is in Ash's POV, but will get more into that later. Here's a summary of the first book:

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.

This series was very interesting. I had not really ever read a story that takes place in this kind of world. It is not about the types of fairies you are used to. These "faeries" are manipulative and not always trustworthy. You might recognize some familiar names such as Puck, Oberon, and Titania if you read "A Midsummer's Night Dream", but this is way more interesting! Meghan is such a strong character! Throughout the story, her growth was evident as was Prince Ash's. Ash is so mysterious and brooding (like most YA boys) yet Meghan brings out the best in him and helps show him that it is ok to show your feelings. I originally thought the loved story was rushed and unrealistic. In the beginning, I really wanted her to be with Puck. However, as the story progressed I realized how both Meghan and Ash needed each other. Not only are the character relationships great but the plot and writing style are so engaging. I could not put the book down and just flew threw this series! However, the 4th book was more of an in between/companion book to introduce the spin off series. I enjoyed seeing from Ash's POV but got bored quickly and wanted to see what Meghan was doing. However, I still really enjoyed the series. I laughed, I cried, and had a good time. These are really fast reads and if you are into fantasy or enjoy a good adventure don't hesitate to pick this up! You won't regret it. Here are my ratings for each of these books:



Until next time fellow readers, never trust a fey...
