Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.

Unless he can earn a soul.

To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.

Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.

With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side.

To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.

And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

I just loved this book a bunch! The Iron Knight isn't my favorite book of the series, but it's definitely up there in my favorites. I've been putting off writing this review for a LONG time now. I just couldn't think of anything good enough to say about this book.

But I did go to a Scott Westerfeld panel and heard about how we can also express how we feel through pictures. So I went into writing this review in a different way.

When I flipped to the front of the page I saw the name, Robin Goodfellow:

I then read that Puck and Ash are working together:

And when Ash gets all determined to do anything, and I really do mean ANYTHING, to be with Meghan again:

When Puck, Ash, and Grimalkin start their journey into finding Ash a soul:

When someone tries to interrupts me while I'm reading about how much Ash loves Meghan:

When I finish the book and realize that this is the end of series:

But when someone asks me why it's so awesome all I can sort out was:


Seriously, go get this book.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
