Review: The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa
Title: The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #3)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Goodreads Summary: The Iron Prince—my nephew—betrayed us all.
He killed me.
Then, I woke up.
Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever.
Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase.To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore.
Rating: 5+ Stars
Review: Julie Kagawa has been my favourite author since I started reading, and I've read all of her released books. On this note, I give you my review of The Iron Warrior:
As with everything Julie Kagawa, I was hooked on the first page. Finally, I thought, it's Saturday, and I can read full time. So I picked up The Iron Warrior and begun to read. I spent the whole day reading (instead of watching PLL like I usually do), and I loved everything.
Keirran has changed a lot since we last met him in The Iron Traitor. Ethan has also long since grown up from the Ethan in the original Iron Fey series, the Ethan who was nothing more than Meghan's little other.
Kenzie and I share many traits, and I think it is that plus her illness that makes me really admire her. I don't love Ethan as much as Ash, but I understand why she would fall for him; after all, Ash is already taken.
Meghan is another character that has changed a lot since The Iron Fey Series, and she has definitely become the queen she was meant to be. Unfortunately there was next to no Meghan/Ash drama as they were only at the sideline, and the story was heavily centred on Ethan.
Julie Kagawa has never ceased to amaze me. She will definitely remain my favourite author for years to come. She has something special, and I'm addicted to it. It's unique to her, and I love it so much.
Recommended for: Anyone who loves YAPnR, you MUST read Julie Kagawa.
