Meghan is now the Iron Queen. That means, Ash can't be with her, as long as he's a fey, he'll never be able to survive in the Iron Kingdom and be with Meghan. As long as he's a fey.
And that's why Ash has embarked to a journey, along with Puck and Grimalkin, to the end of the world, and be a human -- it's the only way.
But as Ash gets nearer to his goal, things come in his way. A legend willing to go with them, a past he thought will always remain in the past, the life he was brought up and many more.
In the end, it will be Ash to decide if what he chose just to be with Meghan would be the life he really wanted.
If you haven't started reading The Iron Fey series, don't you think this cover is enough to convince you to do so??? This guy is totally hot! It really suits him as Ash.
Anyways, back to the story...
There are a lot of happenings in this book, and it feels soooo llooonnggg.. Maybe because I was waiting for the scenes with Ash and Meghan. And I'm warning you, it's not that much in this book. But I swear! It's all worth it.
It's nice to see Ash and Puck together, working on the same goal. Though it breaks my heart on what's Puck is doing, you could still see the camaraderie between the two, even though it's being hidden behind all their "fights" and "angst" toward each other. Also, I was able to have the opportunity to see different sides of both of this amazing guys. You'll see a Puck so serious, and fill of regrets. And you;ll see a vulnerable Ash. An Ash who love so deep.
From here on onward, I won't be able to write a proper review without some spoilers... so BEWARE OF SPOILERS if you continue reading..
There's a big surprise in this story and I didn't like so much. Yes, it's Ariella. When she returned, and the way Ash acts toward her is so annoying. It makes me wonder, If Ash have known that Ariella is alive all this time, Would Ash still fall for Meghan? It would be nice to know that even with Ariella in the scene, Ash would still choose Meghan. Although, I don't blame Ash that much for acting that way. He had believed Ariella is already dead for thousand of years, and in those years, he's suffering. Though Ariella is nice, I can't help but hate her. Every scene, I was wishing Meghan would just pop out there and end everything right there and then!
There's a lot of action here as well. And not the usual war we've seen in the past books. A very good type of action that suits well in every character. In the end, it became so intense and very dramatic.
The ending is the best ending I've ever read so far. It's better than any fairy tale. It's not that cheezy, but it would make you go head over heels for Ash. He's the best knight ever!
Then, at the last part, it keeps me wondering. Is Grim Ariella's cat???
