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 herirrevocably 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.
The last book of the Iron Fey series. I was so excited to read this because I loved the previous books. And I'm glad to have finally read it. Of course courtesy of NetGalley! :)
The Iron Knight started where the Summer's Crossing left off. So I suggest you read Summer's Crossing first. The book is in Ash POV so I expected it to be interesting. The story is about Ash's quest to become mortal so that he can honor his vow to Meghan - and that's to be with her in the Iron Realm. It's kinda slow at first but as the story went it will keep you interested.
This final installment of the series will not disappoint you. It's kinda refreshing to have Ash's point of view. In the previous books, we saw him as a quiet guy who would always keep his feelings to protect himself. In this book, you'd know his true feelings and his true identity. Also, I like Grim and the Big Bad Wolf's bickering! They really entertained me a lot in this book!
I was surprised with the twist! I don't want to be a spoiler. I just didn't see that coming. Initially, I thought that revelation will complicate things. But there's a purpose why it happened. I'm not that satisfied with the ending! I want more!
I'd still say The Iron Knight is a really good ending for the series. Ms. Kagawa was able to capture us with this Faery series. Thank you and We want more right??
