Finished The Iron Queen on the 7th! Just getting around to writing a review cause I’ve been sick, meh.
Very good, but I’m so relieved that Ms. Kagawa didn’t end the series with this book. I started reading it under the impression it was a trilogy. Luckily, before I finished this one, The Iron Knight came out, so I had some idea that it would continue on. Unless of course, she was doing a Midnight Sun….fortunately not. =) I’m sad to see that the series is ending (apparently) with Iron Knight, but I see there’s also a collection of novellas just released too, so I’ll be checking that out soon as I finish the last book.
Unfortunately though, I did get the tiniest bit spoiled on something that would happen at the end of this book. But after speculating the entire time I was reading today, I still didn’t guess it 100% right and managed to be somewhat surprised at how it played out.
Overall Iron Queen was very enjoyable. I could say predictable in some spots, but whatever. When you deal with Oberon, Titania, and Mab, how is anything not predictable? But speaking of Mab…I really did like the brief glimpse we had of her actually giving a crap about her son for once. The Ice Queen melted just a little, aww.
As always, love the chemistry between the trio. And Puck. Gosh, I think he may have grown up just a little. Looking forward to seeing more of him and Ash interacting in Iron Prince, its bound to be awesome.
