read kindle ☆ The Iron King Paperback ´ moneyexpresscard ¼ Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imaginedSomething has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six She has never uite fit in at school or at homeWhen a dark straS a pawn in a deadly war Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart Wow As many others have stated at first glance THE IRON KING appears to be your typical faerie book Summer court? Check Winter court? Check Shakespeare esue characters? Check Yes there are similarities but these lie only in the bare backbone of the story Yes there are those faerie courts and A Midsummer Night's Dream characters Oberon Titania etc but they are necessary for the make up of the story From here on out Julie Kagawa makes THE IRON KING shine in the already faerie inundated YA world Julie Kagawa writes in a style that is easy and refreshing to read She doesn't weigh you down with a barrage of information rather she slowly immerses the reader into her world page after page Descriptions flow off the page and her tone is never stilted It's narrated in first person point of view through Meghan's eyes and I found this great because she had a voice that was believable and easy to relate toThe thing I loved most about THE IRON KING was its multiple story lines Meghan embarks on a journey that takes her far and wide to diverse regions of Faeryland and all over America There wasn't just one set plot where she travels into the Summer court and stays there for the rest of the novel Nope her uest brings her from one plot to another from one crisis to a new one from one mission to the nextTHE IRON KING has a action and adventure feel to it though that is not to say it didn't have romance There was a love story but it did not overwhelm the fantasy like realm of the Nevernever faery land and its uniue and engaging inhabitants First off I love the feel of THE IRON KING It's like a uest in the sense that Meghan the main character encounters all sorts of odd and malicious beings along the way as she nears her main goal Unlike many faerie books out today there was SO much going on And in a good way The story wasn't just about faerie drama and court intrigue although there was a good portion of that in the beginning which was actually done in a superb way There was a lot of fighting which was written well so it wasn't boring usually I dislike fight scenes for their dull descriptions and constant sword clashing etc but in THE IRON KING I was actually very very enthralled The romance was very well done as well There was a love triangle going on although that was subtle and not very well emphasized because one love interest took the backseat to the other in a good way I love the push and pull the chemistry between Meghan and the guy which was very believable and made it all the satisfying when they admit their feelings sorta And the characters I loved them all which is a rarity in these types of books where only the main character and one or two others stand out and all others are only fleetingly described or mentioned Meghan has a companion in a Cheshire like cat named Grimalkin whom I adored and all the other characters were well fleshed out to the point where I could visualize them in my mind and understand their actions THE IRON KING is reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland in that there is this feeling of being in an alternate and extremely uirky and surreal setting which is true to an extent because a lot of the novel takes place in the Nevernever home to the faeriesAlthough THE IRON KING is only 368 pages it was 368 pages of captivating adventure and page turning action I wholeheartedly recommend this to all those who love faeries and ok everyone else too
