The Iron Knight Review
Reading Level:Young Adult
Last book in Iron Fey series
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
This was seriously the best way to end the series. It was beyond amazing. This was basically all Ash. The author said she wrote it for all the Ash fans. I think it's perfect for both Ash and Puck fans cause both of them play a big part in it. You have no idea how sad I am to see this series end. It was so amazing and original. I can honestly admit I cried when it was over. Twice .I'm gonna miss it.
So in this we follow Ash along with some friends on his quest to become mortal. Ash was a different person in this. I saw another side of him. I don't think when he started his quest he realized how hard it would be. I really liked how we learned more about him and his past. Puck was his usual adorable and hilarious self. I kinda think he should have a spin off. I would love that. Grimalkin kinda annoyed me actually. I loved him in the other ones but for some odd reason he bothered me in this. Probably because he was always disappearing during fights. Ariella was probably the most annoying person ever. I felt bad for her but she wasn't very nice either. I'm gonna miss all these characters with all my heart :(.
Overall this book was amazing. Its incredibly unique. I'm sad but also super excited to see what this author has planned next :). 5/5 Stars
