The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen (Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa.
Publisher: Harlequin Teen.
Pages: 358.
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 Queen is a fantastically epic and explosive addition to The Iron Fey series. It’s adventurous, romantic, intense, ass-kicking, heartbreaking and nail-biting and a lot more things that I can’t even begin to think of because I’m still missing pieces of my brain from when this book BLEW MY MIND.

Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grim are stuck in their most dangerous and risky situation yet, one that could mean lives lost and the NeverNever destroyed. It follows the same perfectly set pace of the first two books, but I was literally twitching with anticipation; I couldn’t read fast enough. But when it did end … holy crap, I was devastated. I was sobbing. I was a blubbery mess for at least an hour. I’m going to be an impatient crazy person waiting for The Iron Knight to be released. (And seriously, how many of you are just as excited as I am to see Ash’s point of view?)

And the romance … *sigh* Usually, I’m not a fan of the cheese, but I made an exception for Ash and Meghan. Those two were so gooey and cute that I giggled like a toddler every time they did something sweet.

Overall, The Iron Queen is, simply put, brilliant. This review might not have been insightful or critical, but I think my love for this series is clearly obvious and that’s all you need to know. If you haven’t read these books yet, you’re missing out. I recommend this series a million times. Even if you’re not a fan of faeries (I wasn’t either, but look at my crazy rambling of love for this series!) I urge you to give them a chance.
