#43: The Iron King - Julie Kagawa




Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

AUTHOR BIO:
Julie Kagawa worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, until she sold her first book and stopped training to write full-time.


My Opinion:
I feel a tear prickling the back of my eyes as I set the book down. The sacrifice and bargaining that was made and upheld throughout the story, was heartwarming and heart-wrenching all-at-once.
I really loved this book, and can't wait to get  my hands on the next one.
I heard many reviews before I got to read it, and every one of them lived up to the hype! It really is a well written, and fantastical adventure. The hint of romance is always in the air, but for me it was more the fantasy element. I told the hubby, it's like reading Salvatore's books, without so many descriptive words, and that is really how I swallowed it.
I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy like R.A. Salvatore, or Weiss and Hickman. It has the same fantasy elements, characters and such.

5/5

Recommend? YES!!!!!

    1. I agree. This book was fantastic. After reading it, I bought the entire series. I'm in the middle of The Iron Daughter. Finished Winter Passage and I loved it too. My heart went out to Meghan but also Ash and Puck.

    REVIEW:
    I sorta hated the beginning.
    Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
    It doesn't take long to get light though.
    Thankfully.
    Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
    Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
    This is the eighth and final season.



    REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

    REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


    It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
    What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
    The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
