The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)Title: The Iron Knight
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: HarlequinTEEN
Release: October 25, 2011
Pages: 361
Series: The Iron Fey #4
Synopsis:
Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.

Unless he can earn a soul.
To cold, emotionless 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 solemn 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. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.

And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Review:
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.
