Description-

  • From the limitless imagination of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Kagawa, return to the world of The Iron Fey.
    In less than twenty-four hours I'll be seventeen.
    Although, technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in.
    In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself.
    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.
    Don't miss the first book in Julie Kagawa's highly anticipated new series, SHADOW OF THE FOX, AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2, 2018
    "Julie Kagawa is one killer storyteller."

    —MTV's Hollywood Crush blog
    "The Iron King has the...enchantment, imagination and adventure of... Alice in Wonderland, Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, but with lots more romance."
    —Justine magazine

    "A full five-stars to Julie Kagawa's
    The Iron Daughter. If you love action, romance and watching how characters mature through heart-wrenching trials, you will love this story as much as I do."
    —Mundie Moms blog

Excerpts-

  • From the book



    Eleven years ago, on my sixth birthday, my father disappeared.

    One year ago, on the very same day, my brother was taken from me, as well. But that time, I went into Faery to take him back.

    It's strange how a journey can change you, what you can learn from it. I learned that the man I thought was my father wasn't my father at all. That my biological dad wasn't even human. That I was the half-breed daughter of a legendary faery king, and his blood flowed in my veins. I learned that I had power, a power that scares me, even now. A power that even the fey dread, something that can destroy them--and I'm not sure I can control it.

    I learned that love can transcend race and time, and that it can be beautiful and perfect and worth fighting for but also fragile and heartbreaking, and sometimes sacrifice is necessary. That sometimes it's you against the world, and there are no easy answers. That you have to know when to hold on...and when to let go. And even if that love comes back, you could discover something in someone else who has been there all along.

    I thought it was over. I thought my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices for those I loved, was behind me. But a storm was approaching, one that would test those choices like never before. And this time, there would be no turning back.

    My name is Meghan Chase.

    In less than twenty-four hours, I'll be seventeen.

    Déjà vu, right? Shocking how quickly time can pass you by, like you're standing still. I can't believe it's been a year since that day. The day I went into Faery. The day that changed my life forever.

    Technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age, or you age so slowly it's not worth mentioning. So, while a year has passed in the real world, I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in.

    In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself.

    Beneath me, the tatter-colt's hooves clopped against the pavement, a quiet rhythm that matched my own heartbeat. On this lonely stretch of Louisiana highway, surrounded by tupelo trees and moss-covered cypress, few cars passed us, and the ones that did flew by without slowing down, tossing leaves in their wake. They couldn't see the shaggy black horse with eyes like hot coals, walking along the road without reins or bit or saddle. They couldn't see the figures on its back, the pale-haired girl and the dark, beautiful prince behind her, his arms around her waist. Mortals were blind to the world of Faery, a world I was a part of now, whether I'd asked for it or not.

    "What are you afraid of?" a deep voice murmured in my ear, sending a shiver up my spine. Even in the humid swamps of Louisiana, the Winter prince radiated cold, and his breath was wonderfully cool against my skin.

    I peered at him over my shoulder. "What do you mean?"

    Ash, prince of the Unseelie Court, met my gaze, silver eyes gleaming in the twilight. Officially, he was no longer a prince. Queen Mab had exiled him from the Nevernever after he refused to renounce his love for the half-human daughter of Oberon, the Summer King. My father. Summer and Winter were supposed to be enemies. We were not supposed to cooperate, we were not supposed to go on quests together and, most important, we were not supposed to fall in love.

    But we had, and now Ash was here, with me. We were exiles, and the trods--the paths into Faery--were closed to us forever, but I didn't care. I wasn't planning to ever go back.

    "You're nervous." Ash's hand stroked the back of my head,...

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books cmmace - I have heard so many great things about this series, so it is on the top of my "to read" list. I know it is set in a fairy tale place so if you like the brutal truth behind these worlds I would also want to check it out.

    Though this third volume doesn't bring the Iron Fey series, which began with The Iron King (2010), to a conclusion, faery-human cross Meghan brings part of her arc to a pleasingly unexpected closure. With Ash, boyfriend and coldly beautiful prince of the Winter court, Meghan begins her new exile in the mortal lands. Faery isn't ignoring her, though: With Meghan holding all of the power of the defeated Iron King, it seems like everyone's trying to kill or recruit her. Meghan, unwilling to bring all this faery madness down upon her mortal family, doesn't return home. She does, however, rescue her long-lost adoptive father, who'd been taken by a faery faction in her childhood. The requisite angst provided by the trio of lovers—Ash, Meghan and Meghan's best friend Puck—spices up the battles, magical journey and coming-of-age. Meanwhile, talking cat Grimalkin has his own motivations, setting the scene neatly for volume four. As in the rest of the series, the Iron Fey provide the most originality to this faery adventure and magical romance. Clockworks golems, musket elves and beetle tanks provide a touch of steampunk. Fans of Melissa Marr—and of Kagawa—will enjoy the ride, with Meghan's increased agency and growing power showing the series' maturity. Finally more than just a love triangle. (Urban fantasy. 12-15)

    Gr 7 Up-Meghan Chase is turning 17 in the real world while her boyfriend, Ash, the "Ice Prince," lives on forever like all Faeries. After her last quest, Meghan thought that her time with the fey, her enemies, was over. Despite her wishes and hopes, she gets a rude awakening when she discovers that a new Iron King is bringing Nevernever to the brink of complete destruction. After the battle with the Iron King, Machina, Meghan and Ash were exiled from Nevernever, banned from ever returning again. But with the return of the Iron King, the Winter and Summer armies, led by Oberon and Mab, need Meghan's help and lift their exile judgment. Will Meghan find the courage to stand up for Nevernever again? Will her feelings for Ash get in the way of her mission? Meghan's struggles are intricately laid out in this constantly moving tale of true love and dedication. Sequencing of events is perfectly lined up to keep readers wanting more. And despite being part of a series, it stands on its own.-Kathryn Kennedy, Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, GA
