Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars.

Oh Ash. You make me swoon you brilliant winter fairy.

Touch her, and I’ll cut off your testicles and put them in a jar.

Megan is the daughter of King Oberon. When her little brother is kidnapped and replaced by a changeling, Megan has to travel to the Nevernever in order to rescue him. Along the way, she finds out secrets about her origin, and her kin.

I’m well aware that I am late to the game, but I really enjoyed this book. It was fun. While riddled with clichés, it’s all the ones I kinda love. There’s romance, humor, adventure, danger and even a bromance to swoon for.

What I liked:

– Ash and Puck.

– The trods.

– The world building.

– The Plot.

– Grimalkin

To be absolutely fair, it is not the best book of all the best books in the world.

In fact, it caters to a whole other target than me.

But with that said: I enjoyed Kagawa’s writing, her imagination and most importantly, her characters. It’s a book that I would have re-read over and over as a teenager, and I might even still.

I’m giving it five stars based on the fact that I really enjoyed reading this.

Recommended for: Young Adults. Urban fantasy lovers. Bromance shippers. And those who just like an entertaining read.
