Iron Fey #1
2010 Harlequin Teen, YA PNR, 363 pages
What can I say about short stories…well, it was nice to read it after having read The Iron King, I got to read about the way to the Unseelie court. Of course that just made me wonder where exactly book 2 begins.
I felt the connection between Ash and Meghan a bit more in this one, and I also thought Meghan was a bit too nice. Take the chance and run girl. Especially if your man says he will kill you if he must.
I am not a fan of short stories but it worked, still I was not taken by it as I was with book 1.
Iron Fey #2
August 2010, 359 pages
It was not as good as book 1, something was missing for me, but still this was a really good book. Often book 2 is a let down and this did not happen here, I was just bugged by a few things. But it still had me caught in its grip and would not let go
I think most of my problem was the love triangle. It is so done, please, no more. If you love someone you love that someone, especially when you do anything for said person. You do not suddenly start thinking if you love this other guy. Why the girls do not get dumped I do not know. Is anything worth that heartbreak. How do you know she will be true in the future then? Ya heroines has commitment issues,
And I do get why Ash is cold in this one, but Meghan does not seem to grasp the danger of the Winter court. Come on they might eat ya. He is playing it safe. Sure he is arrogant but still, she should get it. But then she is a bit headstrong.
But still I like it, and that does not happen often with YA books like this series. Kagawa is just that good. Even if I wish it had been as good as book 1, but at least it made me want more.
Nr 1 yes, 1,5 ok, book 2, nah
