The Iron Knight

Prince Ash will go to the ends of the earth to be with the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly where he ends up. In a quest to retrieve his soul and become human, he brings along lovable, witty Puck, the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin and the Big Bad Wolf. Whoever else joins him on his journey might come as a bit of surprise. 
At this point you're probably asking yourself: why would Prince Ash want to become mortal? Simple! True love! Amore! He can't step foot in the Iron Realm as a faery because it will suck the life out of him. The solution? Become a human. Sure, you have to subject yourself to colds, headaches and crazy hormonal cravings (okay, maybe only girls fall into this category) but you get the idea. 

The Iron Fey Series was one of my favorite YA series of last year, so I was surprised to see a fourth installment after the trilogy wrapped up nicely in the Iron Queen. Personally, I found Prince Ash's POV a little boring, but he IS an Ice Prince, after all. My favorite characters in the book will always be Grimalkin and Puck (what is wrong with Meghan - I'll take a crazy, redheaded mischief-maker after an "ice-boy" any day, lol). But joking aside, it was an old-fashioned quest plot line that used all of the best elements of fairytales to get the job done. I liked it. It was fun, and I still think Puck is the best character.....just saying....

Get fictional - it's fun! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
