"The Iron Queen" by Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey, #3)

(If you haven't read the first two books and 1.5 in this series, you should probably look at those reviews first! The Iron King, Winter's Passage, and The Iron Daughter.)
"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."-goodreads

I thought I liked the Iron King. Then, I thought I liked the Iron Daughter even MORE. I thought The Iron Queen couldn't get much better than those? Right? Wrong! The Iron Queen was way better than the first two, and I adored it! Now, let's talk about why.

SURPRISING TWISTS. Jeez. If nothing else, this series is filled with some pretty epic twists. The end, for example? I did not expect that to happen to Meghan. Then I thought she was dead. Then I was surprised AGAIN. But, that's the thing, because there is WAY more to this series.

The modern world/faery world, that the whole Iron Fey series is set in is very different from anything I've ever read before. As I've said before, the world is probably one of the most fascinating parts. And, naturally, I love Meghan and Ash. Puck is still really funny. I felt kind of bad for him at times, as I did in The Iron Daughter. Also, has anyone noticed that Ash and Will from Clockwork Angel are very similar? They are to me, anyway.

If this review seems kind of random, it's because I'm trying VERY hard to say nothing that will totally spoil at least the first two books. So, it's kind of a mini-review. All I can tell you is that you absolutely must read the Iron Fey series if you want to read a fantasy that's quite different. Love it. The Iron Queen is the best one of the series! Mrs. Julie Kagawa is REALLY awesome. Just saying.
