The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Cover via Goodreads

Rating: 4/5 stars.

I’m not going to add anything new to the table with this review, but I’ll throw in my two cents – I enjoyed this story about faeries that utilized A Midsummer Night’s Dream as its framework.

The writing and the plot complemented each other splendidly. Kagawa’s prose is refreshing and easy to read while still including moments of magic that made the wondrous land of Nevernever come alive. The story is a combination of action and adventure and romance – beginning with sixteen-year-old Meghan Chase being whisked away into the world of the Fae in search of her brother – and resulting in many more trials, ending in a battle with the Iron King himself.

One of the best faerie books I’ve read to date, I’ll have to add two books to my to-read list: The Iron Daughter, the second book in the Iron Fey series, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, so I can read more about the Fae in a literary piece.
