Redonk Nutshell: Banished fairy prince vows to find a way to become human in order to be with the woman he loves

The Iron Knight is the epic conclusion to Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series.  Go here if you’re not familiar with this series before reading on for a quick catch-me-up.

Let it be known that I am Team Ash, all the way.  I was psyched to get my grubby paws on this book because more than anything I wanted Ash to have his happy ending.  Does he get it?  *evil cackle* Like I’m gonna tell you.

I will say this much: The Iron Knight will leave you satisfied, feeling like a fat kid at a cake buffet.  We  delve deeper into Ash and his past, and along the way we get more Puck-isms, more Grimalkin, and a surprise appearance of new characters.   Let’s not forget adventure – a healthy dose of what we’ve come to expect from Ms. Kagawa.

We learn why Ash is so tormented, and on his journey to become human, the fairy prince finally learns what sacrifices he must make in order to fulfill his wish to be reunited with Meghan.  The question then becomes whether or not this is what he truly desires.

The Iron Knight is a wonderful conclusion to The Iron Fey series.  From what I understand, there will be additional books in the same world but featuring Meghan’s little bro.
