Publication Date: January 25th by HarlequinTeen
copy provided by publisher through NetGalley
goodreads,amazon (paperback and Kindle version) and I’m pretty sure there will be an audiobook version. 

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.


This.was.epic!!! Simply epic. 

Julia Kagawa wrote an incredible third book in the Iron Fey series. I laughed and I cried – a lot! And I devoured every second of this book.

Iron Queen starts with Ash and Meghan being cast out of Nevernever and talking about what to do next. What live to life – a Fey and a Half Breed, what future could they have in the human world?

When they reach Meghan’s home, she’s scared since it’s been a year she was home. We don’t have to wait long for Meghan being attacked – again from Iren Fey. This is when she realized that her journey has not ended yet and that she has to face the Iron Fey once more. Yet, she has no clue how big the threat became and lives and a whole world depends on Meghan’s courage and decisions.

Meghan is grown up and so much more than in the first book..
Love that girl! 

Gosh how I loved this girl! Meghan in this book is not the Meghan we got to know in the Iron King. She’s grown up, the happenings in with the Iron Fey and the Iron King changed her, made her even braver. She begins to realize what she can do, what powers lay inside her and that she has to use them. I adored her bravery and also her loyalty to people that were nothing to her only a year ago, yet Meghan would do anything to defend them. She stands up and faces her destiny.

Ash 
*swoon* 
*droll*

… he’s the wonderful Ice Prince Meghan fall in love with and he is all that she could ever hope for. FInally separated from the cold Unseelie Court Ash begins to lighten up. His love for Meghan is endless and he would do anything to protect her, to make her happy – he would even give his life for her. Always by her site he also encourages her to fight, to go out of her comfort zone to be the girl she was ever meant to be. But he’s also insecure and scared and that makes him even more adorable! His possessiveness makes him the guy every girl dreams about. Truly, I was Team Ash right from the beginning – now I’m even more!

Puck and Grim the 
most awesome side characters – ever! 

Puck and Grim are the ones that makes you laugh when everything seems darker and darker, they are the light source in every Iron Book so far. Grim is his usual annoying, sarcastic self that tries to hide how much he cares for Megh and Puck (although heartbroken form Megh’s choice) will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Incredible! 

While reading this book, I felt like a movie is running behind my eyes. Julie managed to describe the places Meghan, the boys and Grim have to visit so that I was always stunned in amazement thinking how that would look on a big screen. This.Would.Be.Incredible! Truth to be told, I was thinking more than once on Lord of the Rings and the epicness behind those books and those movies. Julie Kagawa created an epicness herself with this series!

Crying… a lot! 
Get ready for it! 

I was sobbing so hard during the last 10% of the book. Get your Kleenex ready when getting to this part, I promise your eyes will be red after you finished this book. The end will leave you speechless, I promise you this too! You will be torn between how you wish this book will end and how you know this book has to end. Let me just say this: If I wouldn’t know that there will be “The Iron Knight” coming out next year, I would be desperate!

Yes, in case you haven’t heard it yet, there will be a 4th books (and I just recovered from fainting after I heard that) and it will be from Ash’s POV.. *faints again*

Bottom Line:

The Iron Queen was the epic, enthralling and heart breaking third book in The Iron Fey saga. You will cry from heartbreak and you will fall in love with those amazing characters all over again. If you haven’t started the first book yet, get it – you won’t be disappointed and love this amazing and wonderful world Julie Kagawa created.

Here a quote to swoon over… 

“You are my heart, my life, my entire existence.”

Seriously, if you haven’t start this series. What are you waiting for??
Go and get the first books already!!

Here are some linkies.

And of course I have some Team Buttons for you, 
grab them and show your love!!!

and last but not least, the official trailer…

Ok guys are you excited as I am that the Iron Queen will be released so soon? 
But I’m waiting desperately 
for The Iron Knight to come out..
I’m utterly and fully 
in love with those books!

  1. I can't wait to start reading about Meghan and Ash! This book sounds so great. I really need to read faster and get these review books read so I can concentrate on my own stash for a little while. Thanks for a great review Danny, even though you made me even more restless about starting them lol.

  2. I am reading the Iron King right now…. better late than never! I have the Iron Queen waiting to read for a review so I knew it was time to finally get my booty in gear. Can't wait to plow through the first two to read the 3rd. Great series so far

    Ahem! You aren't doing an ARC giveaway or something??? I was so looking forward to it. Guess I'll have to wait these last few days. I know it will be good. Julie Kagawa has not let us down, though I was disappointed to know there would be two more books in the series. Now don't get me wrong. I love her work and want to read more. I just like conclusions. And I wanted my HEA. And I'm pretty sure it's not coming with this one if the next one is called Iron Knight. Though I have no idea who the Knight would be. Ash is a Prince. And Puck is anything he wants to be. So is there a new character??? Can't wait!

    As always Danny, you leave us in anticipation!

  4. It's only one more book. and I can assure you that the ending is OK, even for me who is heavily romantic and neeeeddds a perfect HEA. Don't fear it and read it, you'll know what I mean once you finished it. Gosh this book was epic!!
