What Kind Of Review Can You Expect?


If I could describe what kind of reader I am, I would hands down say I was an emotional one. When I read I want to fully experience the book, from the emotions coursing through the characters to reacting to the twist and turns of the storyline. I'm looking for those books that fire up my imagination and leave me breathless when it's over. It's for this reason why the reviews I write aren't so much what I think and are more on how I feel. My hopes in sharing my review in this way is that something will spark an interest and have you wanting to have the same experiences. This isn't to say I don't have issues with grammar, word choices etc. Trust me I do and most times all it takes is waiting for the story to grab hold for it not to matter. When I do include things about what I thought about the book (for example I've included comments about word choices and being too descriptive), I only do so because it directly affected how I felt. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

The Iron Queen, by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen
YA Fantasy/Romance
Official Blurb:
My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.

What I thought:
I don't even know where to start with book except to say, "Oh my holy heck....if Ash gets any hotter I might lose my mind!!"

I was thrilled to read this book and find myself in one of my favorite places, "Ash-land," once again!  I was really afraid to read this because the second book ended up with "my" beloved prince getting his girl and I was happy with that.  I worried that storyline would fall apart in book three, and well, you will just have to read it for yourself to find out what happens.

This book didn't let me down though, and I was on a swoon fest roller coaster from the get go! Iron-ically, (bad pun I know) I read this book at the same time as my BFF and we read at the same speed, so it was massive doses of swooning and sighing times two...think Ash Fest in stereo!!

We devoured this book in one sitting and now find ourselves waiting with baited breath for the final installment in this series, The Iron Knight.  Oh...did I mention that book will be in Ash's voice? Oh HECK YEAH!  So don't be calling, messaging, or dropping by that day because I will be behind closed book covers with a certain unseelie prince, hopefully having the time of my life!

Read this series!! It's full of great characters, love triangles, snarkily delivered lines, and terrific battles!! I for one can't wait to see how it all ends!! :D
