The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
I love Julie Kagawa. She is simply epic at writing; there is no other way to explain it. In this epic conclusion of the fantastic Iron Fey series, providing the idyllic answer to any fan of the series' prayers, providing us with one last adventure with Puck and Ash. As with all of her books, Julie has this way with words that is nearly indescribable. She sets the world so you can not only see it, but you feel it too, plus they have the darkness and depth that a lot of books struggle to achieve. The story was good in this book, but not quite to the same standard as the rest of her series. With this story, there were too many slow scenes, not to say there were no exciting scenes, but there were simply too many slow ones thrown in the mix. As for the characters of the book, we don't get to see much Meghan, but we do get to spend a lot of quality time with Ash and Puck, and as a bonus for Team Ash, the book is set in his point of view. I would recommend this book to any fan of the series, especially those who favor Ash. Iron Knight gets a 4.5/5 and a guarantee that I will be reading any book Julie puts out in the future.
