The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Published: January 25, 2011
Genre: Young Adult fantasy
In less than twenty-four hours I'll be seventeen.
Although, technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in.
In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself.
MY NAME IS MEGAN CHASE.
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. (Summary from author’s website)
The Iron Fey series continues with The Iron Queen, the third book in the series by Julie Kagawa. Megan Chase, the half-faery half-human exiled daughter of a faery king, continues her story right were The Iron Daughter left off.
She thought she was returning to her normal mortal life. Things are never that simple with the fey around. Her journey continues as she must find a way to save those she cares about and stop the war that rages in faery, again. This time though, it is all up to her, and everything is at stake, her life, her friends, all of faery, her best friend Puck and her love Ash.
I don’t want to give too many spoilers away to those that haven’t read the rest of the series and I really don’t want to spoil this one for any of you, so I’m keeping this review short.
All our favorite characters are back and will leave you laughing, tearing up and wanting more. The Ash vs Puck debate can rage on again. Many questions are answered, though sometimes you may wish they weren’t. Get comfy, because you won’t want to put this one down. A thrilling book from start to finish!

About the Iron Fey series:
In The Iron King, debut author Julie Kagawa introduced a new, evolved order of faery. In less than twenty-four hours Meghan Chase will be sixteen. Countless stories, songs and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset. But Meghan suspects that it won’t be that way for her. After all, Meghan has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagine.
In The Iron Daughter, Kagawa explores love and betrayal in a faery world gone mad. A half faery princess, half human girl becomes a pivotal part of a deadly conflict between two warring factions of faery.
The winds of war gather in Kagawa's newest novel, The Iron Queen. Meghan Chase thought they’d left Faery behind forever, but pressing matters cause the three exiles to be summoned to war. A new alliance is made, along with a few contracts, of course, and Meghan, half Summer faery princess, half human, is pressed to choose Fey over her mortal beginnings. Will she abandon her human heart for an iron will that will help her survive? For as Meghan can confirm—in real life, unlike books, faery tales don’t necessarily have happy endings.
