From Debbie Wiley Book Reviews
The Iron Queen
by Julie Kagawa
review contains potential spoilers from THE IRON DAUGHTER and THE IRON
KING. Please read those two books for the history.
Meghan Chase and Ash have been exiled from the world of Faery for
refusing to deny their love for one another. Settling back into the
human world sounds like a difficult task but one they are willing to
do… except the world of Faery isn’t yet done with Meghan. Will Meghan,
Ash, and Puck survive the battle that is to come?
THE IRON QUEEN is the third book in a series and is best appreciated
within the context of that series. However, Julie Kagawa does provide a
quick recap for readers who want to jump into this third book.
Julie Kagawa has crafted a fascinating world as she incorporates the
Iron fey more and more into the storyline. I like the twist she takes
with the world of Faery in this latest installment. Unfortunately, the
story itself doesn’t seem to develop as quickly or as well as in the
first two books. Rather, there seem to be bits and pieces dangling that
never fully develop or drag on just a bit. The romantic angle is
starting to become annoying rather than sweet or even a tense triangle
whereas the storyline with Meghan’s dad seems unfinished. However, the
conclusion leaves me with some hope that the characters will begin to
grow a bit more with the next installment.
