Book Review: Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

My name is Meghan 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 stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I’m not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

The Iron Fey is nearing the top of my all time favorite series.  Often sequels in a series don’t get better but this is not the case with the Iron Fey series.  I loved this book.  I rarely reread books but this is a series I want to reread.  Julie Kagawa wrote an engrossing tale.  I had thought this was a “trilogy” and that the Iron Queen would be the end of the series.  Not so and in this case I’m thrilled because I really do want more of this series.  Up next is the Iron Knight – Ash’s story – just wish there wasn’t a wait because I want it now!

Bringing me lots of smiles and a few tears this was a well written sequel full of twists and turns.  I don’t want to give any spoilers so I’ll just say this is an fabulous book I thoroughly enjoyed and I’m sure fans of the first 2 books won’t be disappointed.

The Iron Queen will be released on February 1, 2011 by Harlequin Teen.

Rating: 5 Stars – It’s not often I give a 5 star rating to a young adult book that has language, sex &/or violence but I’m making an exception for The Iron Queen – I loved it.

Content: Some mild language but it didn’t seem to be a prevalent as in the first 2 books. Perhaps the difference is simply that I read this book and listened to the audio of the first 2 books in the series and the language stands out to me more when the narrator shouts it in my ear.  There is another content issue that might concern parents (not graphic) but it would spoil the story if I shared more than that. Ages 16+
