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.”
Meghan has to come to terms with who she is, and how to blend her modern, human self into the traditional Faerie world.
The imagery and depth in this story is beautiful and sad.
Can the old Fey ways survive in a world dominated by iron and technology? Will their rulers be too stiff and unmoving to adapt to this new threat?
The implications can be seen in our world, where we value modern technology and shun imagination and fantasy.
I felt with Meghan as she had to make her choice. I cried with her at the difficulty of the task.
I cannot say enough how much I loved this novel. I could not put it down.
Kagawa did not spare anyone — reader or character — in this story. I felt like the consequences of the choices would impact me as well as the characters. And the decisions were hard and tough and real.
I don’t want to give anything away about the plot, but let me just say: The Iron Knight cannot get here fast enough.
