The Iron King – Julie Kagawa

    A fantasy series called Iron Fey that is a book series that I have started to read and I read the first book The Iron King in march. I thought I could share my review on it and later on when I have read the three other books, I can write a final review on this series.

    I decided not to read all books in a row, cause there are other books I want to read first :) But I sure will pick up the second book soon.

    Notice, I have this series in Swedish so that is why it doesn’t say The Iron King on English on the cover.



    First of all, let’s look at the cover. I mean, it really is gorgeous with lovely colors that capture your eyes and the other books in the series have covers in the same gorgeous style. The word fantasy hits immediately when you see it, right?! :)

    The only thing that bothered me a little was some of the Swedish translation of a few words. Why translate the word Iron King to Swedish?? It sounds so silly to me. Sometimes I think you don’t have to translate absolute everything, cause it doesn’t sound good when you read it and I think it’s unnecessary. Beside from that I really liked it, it was an easy book to read.

    This is really a typical story that suits young adults (YA), as it’s a story with teenagers including the main character Meghan. But I am over 30 years old and I liked it anyway. For my part, it doesn’t matter what age the books are most adapted for as long as the story is good :) If you like fantasy, want to dream about other worlds, I find the Iron Fey series and this first book Iron King is a good alternative. It’s a sweet story and I like the beginning of it.



    MEGHAN CHASE HAS A SECRET DESTINYONE SHE COULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED. Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth.

    Cause Meghan is the daughter of a mythical faery king and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face and find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
