#124: The Iron Knight - Julie Kagawa

(Affiliate link)


From Amazon:
My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn’ darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…
To cold 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 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. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

My Opinion:
Swooning!!
I love this series! No, really, I'm not just saying that... I LOVE it! I even have the hubby reading it... though he's still on The Iron Queen
I'm glad I have Iron's Prophecy, novella, and The Lost Prince, eBook, so I can keep reading about these characters. I can't get enough!!
At the end of this book, while I love them all for one reason or another, Grimalkin is still my favorite! Sassy one that he is, but he makes me laugh. He definitely reminds me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. In fact, when I read, that's kinda who falls into my mind, only fatter and furrier. Not sure why the last two attributes, but that's my imagination at work!
Okay, so recently I saw someone give this book a "meh" review. I am totally thinking this lady didn't really read it, or maybe she just skimmed through.... because I really felt like this book answered a lot of questions I had unanswered. It also let us see through anothers' eyes when we saw through one person for the past books. IT was a refreshing change. At any rate, boo on this lady for not probably giving herself to this book or the series. It deserves a heck of a lot more than a "meh".
I guess you can tell by my rant that I love the story, but more-so the series. It is a series that I recommend to anyone. If you have imagination, like fantasy, and enjoy magical adventures filled with action, then what are you waiting for?!

5/5

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.
