The Iron Knight

Author:  Julie Kagawa
Year: 2011
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen

This is the fourth and final book in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. The Iron Queen "ended" Meghan Chase's story but it left Prince Ash hanging. Since Meghan accepted her destiny as the Iron Queen, Ash was unable to be with her because, being a fey, he could not live within her Iron Kingdom. In The Iron Knight, Ash and Puck set off to the End of the Nevernever so that Ash can try to become mortal and gain a soul and spend the rest of his life with Meghan.

This is Ash's story. I loved the way that Kawaga changed points of view and showed us how Ash was feeling. I loved seeing the story from his point of view and watching just to see what ends he would go in order to be with Meghan. It took courage for Kagawa to come back and do another Iron Fey story without her main character, Meghan, featuring in the story at all and it worked. This was probably my favorite story of the four. These books aren't great fiction like To Kill a Mockingbird but they are very entertaining, quick reads that are romantic - a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
