Where To Get It:

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.

Q1: There’s always a choice, Ethan, even if between running away and facing the thing that scares us head-on. Even if all paths lead to the same place. How we get there, and what we do on the way, that’s always up to us. ~ Kenzie

Q2: Normal is highly overrated. ~ Kenzie

Q3: I’m planning, not obsessing. There’s a difference. ~ Ethan

Q4: I’m the smart one, you’re the angry, stabby one. That’s how this partnership works. ~ Kenzie

Q5: Bad kitty! Evil, bad kitty! Drown in lake! Shave off fur! Burn, burn! ~ Razor

At this point in time, I’m starting to think “My name is…” is starting to become really basic.

But hey, I won’t complain. It’s been nearly two years since came out and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this one since… forever.

Anyways…

The very last book in the Iron Fey series starts off about a month after the lovely cliffhanger Kagawa left us in the second book – Ethan finds himself back in the NeverNever and discovers that not only is the world in chaos after the split second break in the Veil, but Keirran has declared war on all of the faery courts. Family drama at its best, right?

The Iron Warrior is perhaps one of the darkest, if not the darkest novel in the entire series (including the main arc with Meghan). Kagawa takes us on an adventure into the NeverNever as she did with the past books, but it is one really disturbing journey. We go into parts of the faery world that have not been covered and more obstacles in the Between where creepy carnivals and malevolent witches are involved in the process as Ethan and Kenzie try to stop Kierran from raging war on the courts.

All of the characters – at least, the ones that remain alive from the spin off and the main series all make some sort of appearance in this last book, and Kagawa introduces a few new ones that will never make a future appearance. There are so many feels and internal threats to kidnap Razor – he is absolutely ADORABLE and his tiny size makes him so much more adorable – that happen throughout the book.

It’s a sad thought to close the final chapter to the NeverNever, but The Iron Warrior is totally worth reading if only to see all of the major characters from both series once more.

Let’s talk about it!Did you read The Iron Warrior? Or any of Julie Kagawa’s other books? What did you think of them? Leave your thoughts in the comments! 🙂
