Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa: Book Review

Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

Released: October 25, 2011
Publisher: Harlenquin Teen
Pages: 361
Rate: 5/5
Note: If you have not read the first three books in The Iron Fey Series, I suggest you not read this review.

Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing. 
Unless he can earn a soul. 
To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought. 
Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive. 

With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side. 
To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale. 
And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the 

ultimate sacrifice.

okay so I had read this book a couple weeks ago. I just now got to reviewing it. As you can see from my rating I loved this book. When I had finished The Iron Queen, I thought that was the last book, and I was not happy with the way it ended, I wanted to have a noce closed and happy ending. But then I found out that there was another book, and I was so happy! I could not wait to get my hands on this book, and let me tell you Iron Fey fans, you will not be disapointed.

Julie Kagawa did a phenominal job on her writhing. It was amazing. All the Team Ash fans this book will not disapoint.

On to the plot. I really thought it was going to drag on a bit, but it never got slow. That's what I loved.  This book is about Ash going to try and find a soul to be with Meghan, as it says in the synopsis. But along the way he goes through some major obstacles. One in particular that real shocked me, and threw a major curve in the plot. Now the characters were Ash, Puck, Grim, and others. Ash really grew in this book, we sae some major character development, also with Puck, Grim was the same from the first three books. 

With all of that being said I really loved and enjoyed this book, and would reccomend the sereid to everyone it is so good.
