The Iron Knight

5 stars - It was Amazing!!

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.

I just can't believe that I've already finished the Iron Fey series!  It's such a great series and I really loved reading it.  The Iron Knight was a great ending to this series.  I loved how this book was written from Ash's point of view because we are so used to seeing books written in a female's point of view.  It's really nice to see what our guy characters are thinking every once and awhile.  The characters in this book were great once again and of course some new characters are introduced.  Plus some more from the past...  You wont see Meghan a ton in this book but she is still in it.  

It starts off with Ash and Puck looking everywhere for Grimalkin and eventually finding him.  Of course it isn't an easy journey with the danger involved and the boys relationship.  Throughout the journey Ash is forced to decide whether he still or should be with Meghan along with whether he should still keep Puck as his enemy.  There is action and suspense all the way to the end.  I loved how we were able to read about stuff from Ash's past and just see how he has grown.  It was really great and made me appreciate Ash even more.  And even though I know everything has to end, Im going to really miss reading more stories about Ash, Meghan and Puck.  Especially Grim, haha.  

The Iron Fey series was great and I just really love how Julie was able to make me feel for the characters.  And how I was able to feel sad when they were sad or happy when they were.  I feel that for books to be amazing this type of relationship with the characters is key.  So anyways The Iron Knight was a great ending to the series and it was really fun to read.  I think that anyone who loved the first three books will love this one as well.  There are new characters and characters from the past and just so much suspense and love.  Its a great mix of everything.  I'm really looking forward to reading The Lost Prince (the first book to a new series that isn't out yet) and Iron's Prophecy which has to do with Meghan and Ash.  So check this book out and I hope you like it as much as I did.  I'll definitely read this series over and over again!
