Katiebird Reviews The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa

The Faery realms have always weathered the clash of Summer and Winter fey, the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. Now a new breed of faery has emerged to challenge both… to their peril. Forged by Man’s insatiable pursuit of technological superiority, the terrifying Iron fey are massing…and the fate of all faeries hangs in the balance. The greatest weapon in this epic magical war? A half-human teenage girl.

Honestly, I really am wondering what the hell I was reading when these books came out back in 2012-2013. Well..there really is only so much time in the day to read, so I will have to forgive myself for not starting this series sooner. With each book, I fell more in love with the characters and their lives. It will be no surprise to anyone who has read this series to hear which book is my favorite!

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

To be completely honest, I haven’t truly started reading this book, but it’s been on my TBR list for years. That’s right, I have books on my Kindle app that been there that long. I am a huge fan of Julie Kagawa, so I am excited to dive into this series…

a court of thorns and roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

I had something in mind to review this week, but started this book a few days ago. I could not stop reading after the first couple of chapters. It is so good that I decided to write this post immediately after finishing!
