Review: The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn'darkmyr Tallyn.

I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her.

My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…

Oh Julie Kagawa, why did it take so long for you to write a book as awesome as this. Why couldn't you just write from Ash's point of view from the start, you would have had me from book one!

What I loved about this book was that it cleared up what had happened to Ariella and we also got an insight into the relationship between Puck and Ash (I love their kind of bromance!), Ash was a much better narrator than Meghan and I was into him and his quest way more than I ever cared about Meghan.

We meet some other characters that I really liked and some that I hated being there, which I won't name but you'll know if you read it. these were strong and pretty well developed characters and we also see deeper into Puck and Ash. I loved the rivalry between the Big Bad Wolf and Grimalkin. 

There was a little more action and adventure in this one, which I loved, I loved the trials that ash had to go through to become human and the indecision he faced after each one, but I also loved the happy ending. I never thought I'd ever be that glad to see Meghan but yes, I was. 

Overall, the Iron Knight was a fantastic finish to a series and I kind of want more Ash books!

Overall Rating: B+
