#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.

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:
    Such great animation!
    There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
    Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
    This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
