[Julie Kagawa] à The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1) [writing PDF] Ebook Epub Download à Something was happening, something strange and creepy and terrifying, and the scariest part of all was that it wore a familiar, ordinary face3 1 2 stars.
While The Immortal Rules series is still Kagawa s winner for me so far, I was actually really pleasantly surprised by this book Almost everyone I know picked up this series a few years back and I deliberately avoided it YA paranormal with a love triangle Yeah, no thank you But I ve been meaning to see if I was wrong ever since I really enjoyed The Immortal Rules and this first installment is bursting with Kagawa s trademark humour and a likable cast of secondary characters It s far from perfect but I ve heard it s the weakest book of the series We shall see.
The foundations of the story aren t breaking any new ground an awkward teenager called Meghan Chase discovers that the world isn t quite what she firs Wow As many others have stated, at first glance THE IRON KING appears to be your typical faerie book Summer court Check Winter court Check Shakespeare esque characters Check Yes there are similarities, but these lie only in the bare backbone of the story Yes there are those faerie courts and A Midsummer Night s Dream characters Oberon, Titania, etc , but they are necessary for the make up of the story From here on out, Julie Kagawa makes THE IRON KING shine in the already faerie inundated YA world Julie Kagawa writes in a style that is easy and refreshing to read She doesn t weigh you down with a barrage of information, rather, she slowly immerses the reader into her world, page after page Descriptions flow off the page and her tone is never stilted It s narrated in first person point of view, through Meghan s eyes, and I found t DNFI tried I really, really tried.
But this just wasn t my jam I picked it up at least three different times and no dice Onward XXXXXXXXXWhen you are interested in a book by an author you ve never read beforewhich is priced at 7.

I ve had The Iron Fey series sitting on my Audible shelf for quite some time Paranormal Fantasy isn t my go to genre, but I was curious about this series after seeing some great reviews for it Yet, every time that I was in the mood for this type of story there always seemed to be another book released that was higher up on my TBR priorities I finally got around to listening to this audiobook on a recent cross country family road trip Since my children, as well as my 89 year old grandmother, were in the car, my usual smutty romance selections were off the table After all, I wouldn t want to be responsible for giving my grandmother a heart attack and I certainly wasn t prepared to answer any questions that might arise from my children related to something they mi Before everything else,I need to express my strong belief in the existence of fairies,because they would perish without our dreams and thoughts and hopes.
I ve got your back guys,I will not let you fade into oblivionYeah,Mom,Ethan s turned into a monster and my best friend thinks he s a faery.
How was your dayAs you can see,Meghan s life is not that simple.
She used to be the girl that lived by the swamp,an outcast,until her 16th birthday,when a creature disguised as her little brother tried to eat her and her best friend revealed to her that he is an ancient faery protecting her.
Then she visited the Summer Court,found out her father was a Faery King,his wife was not particularly happy about her and she started a dangerous journey to find her baby brother,accompanied by trickster Puck,a talking cat and a brooding dark prince.
I know,the brooding dark prince part is the
NO I almost DNF ed this one It just irritated me to no end But then I met Ash He deserves the 3 stars here 3You know, sometimes less is.
The Iron Fey universe obviously doesn t know of the concept less Up to 40%, the heroine sees about a 150 different creatures, a bit less in the second half but overall she sees a million of them and they re all described like crazy I know, now you re thinking, Blacky you re a moron or your brain is non existent for not being able to cope with a hundred million creatures in one book, but let me tell you how it is to read about it.
she sees a weird creature it looks like this and this and does that and that.
she sees two creatures that try to kill her and they look like this and this and do that and that.
she sees one creature that helps them and he looks like this and this and his house looks like that a I have a vague memory from my early teen years that haunts me to this day there I was, reading The Iron King as it had just been released I turned the last page, smiling to myself, and thought, Wow, what a fantastic book Meghan is so amazing and smart, and Ash is so dreamy I wish I had two handsome, perfect men chasing after me Then, out of nowhere, a disembodied hand materialized in front of me and smacked the living daylights out of my face, like so The Supernatural Slapping Incident of 10 has remained a mystery to me until today, when, upon rereading the Iron King for a BR, I unraveled the very fabric of the universe to reach back in time and give mini me a big ol slap for ever enjoying this book.
Because, seriously, what is there to like The plot is clusterfuck of cliches Final rating 3 5 starsFinal rating for the whole series 3.
5 5 stars To venture in a world of The Iron Fey, you must proceed with this knowledge 1 This is not a book about fairies like these Imagine evil well, not all of them are evil ELVES, so called FAERY or plural FEY.
2 They don t have wings well, most of them don t and there are many of them like dryads, goblins, gremlins, kelpies, ogres and so on and on.
3 In this world, fey are not to be trusted They will always go for favors and bargains and never ever never say thank you to fey.
4 There is a neverending hate between Summer Seelie and Winter Unseelie court.
5 There is one extremely annoying, stupid and idiotic heroine, but nevertheless interesting just ignore her and you will be fine.
6 You will without any doubt fall in love with two heroes they will make you swoon.
I know that a lot of people might be surprised that I like this book, considering I tend to rip other fantasy YA to pieces I just don t think it s bad I don t think Meghan was annoying, she reacted appropriately freaked out at times, but that s reasonable I think Ash is HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG there s a reason he s one of my 3 book boyfriends Grimalkin is absolutely a devilish little delight Puck was a bit grating, but he was appropriate, given his character The Nevernever is enchantment itself The only thing that really bothered me was the fact that Ash and Meghan seemed to fall for each other so easily, with so little evidence Overall, this is still a rock solid book that I evidently love through an unprecedented three readings original review I don t think Meghan Chase Has A Secret Destiny One She Could Never Have ImaginedSomething 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 HomeWhen 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 ChangeBut 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
