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.

My Review:

That is not the end! That is SO not the end! It is not allowed to be the end! (I feel justified in saying this because there’s a note at the back of the book that says there’s at least one more.) Leaving aside the fact that I have loved the idea of the Iron Fey from the very beginning, this book was amazing! I had a hard time putting it down!

All of your favorite characters are back for more, and this time they’re all where they’re supposed to be –  Only there’s one problem. A false king has taken over the Iron Fey and he’s threatening all of Nevernever. Oberon and Mab have joined forces and asked Meghan to help them defeat the false king, but all she wants to do is go home.

I’ll be honest, when I picked it up I didn’t remember a ton from reading the first two and what I did remember kept getting mixed up with the other series’ about fey I’d been reading (I flew through several fey/fae books right in a row last fall, and they kind of combined in my head). But it only took a few pages to get me right back into the story and remembering what happened before. In fact, I’m impressed that so much happened in this book – it feels like forever ago that I started it, even though it was only a few days. The book is jam-packed with action and plot twists, a very fast paced read. At the same time it is filled with emotion – I nearly cried twice, and the last time I cried at a book was when **SPOILER** Dumbledore died. I just don’t cry at books, so the fact that she was able to make me tear up is a huge accomplishment.

I’m not going to say much more, because honestly, if you’re looking at this review you’ve probably already read the first two. If you haven’t START THERE and do it NOW! These fabulous books will NOT disappoint!

Oh and isn’t the cover pretty?! All of them really – so gorgeous!
