Format: Paperback
Ever since her father disappeared when she was a young girl, Meghan Chase has felt like an outcast and a misfit. Then as her 16th birthday approaches, weird things begin to happen. Her four year-old brother Ethan seems to be possessed, and Robbie, Meghan's best friend since childhood seems to know more than he's letting on. Meghan is left reeling when Robbie reveals a strange and deadly new world that exists alongside our own. In order to save her brother, Meghan embarks on a perilous journey filled with creatures and beings she thought only existed in fairy tales.

The Iron King is a high-stakes adventure, filled with a variety of interesting characters. Meghan is a likable protagonist, who grows over the course of the novel, and has the potential to become a truly fascinating and powerful heroine as the series continues. The supporting characters are well-developed and highly entertaining, and even though they were plucked from other stories (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Alice in Wonderland) felt unique. I must admit to liking the supporting characters even more than the main character! The author does a wonderful job of describing the faery world in magnificent detail, but I did find a few situations or plot points were lacking in explanation, and some scenes that should have been emotional did not manage to elicit the expected emotion. Despite these small issues, the story was interesting and fast-paced with plenty of surprises along the way.

The Iron King was a captivating and entertaining story, and I can't wait to read more of Meghan's adventures in the next installment in the Iron Fey Series.

What can I say about Iron King?? WOW- I am SO glad I picked up this book!!! LOVED IT!
I think I had this book sitting on my shelf for almost a year now, not really wanting to read it. I'm not really into the fairy-books much but boy, am I glad I read it.

The story is about Meghan Chase a girl seemingly very normal at first glance, but going through the story Meghan ends up discovering her connection to the fey world. Her little brother Ethan, got kidnapped and taken into the fey world and Meghan is ready to do anything to get him back. When I was reading the parts with Ethan my heart sank at the thought of that cute little kid alone with vicious faeries. I had to glance at the last page(which I don't do anymore... too many spoilers) just to see if Ethan got back safely, or else I would be too preoccupied with his state rather than focusing on the story.

The story was fast paced, things happened... a lot! I believe Meghan got herself almost killed, a bunch of times throughout the book, which gave you nice action scenes and you got to see Ash in a few of them!!
By the way...I'm team ASH..(fanning herself) But you also got to see a lot of the fey, bad ones & good ones, and different kind of creatures that live in the Nevernever(fey world).

Meghan doesn't only have to worry about her brother but herself too, since she got to Nevernever pretty much everyone wants her. She has to stay alive and focus on finding Ethan without getting distracted from Ash...

Oh, Ash... I always liked seemingly cold characters that warm up to the potential love interest but Ash is pure ice...which I love!! He is the son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie court and freeking produces ice from his hands!!!!

My Review: Let me just preface this review by saying that there are two reasons why I picked up this book. First, I was utterly captivated and totally enthralled when I read the first two books of Kagawa's The Immortal Rules (I eagerly bought the third one recently and it's on my To Be Read pile). Her writing, characters, pace and plots were truly fantastic in that series. The second reason why I picked up this book is due to the rave reviews about the very popular Iron Fey series in general. That's got to count for something, right? Um, unfortunately no.

Expectations aren't always a good thing. I brought a digital copy of this book on my recent trip to Florida to visit my parents but sadly I have to admit that I didn't love this book and really struggled to get into it and through it. I honestly feel like I'm betraying the author because I so adored her other series but I can't honestly give this book a glowing review.

I also finished this book wondering if I had read the same book that so many other reviewers had read. My response to this book was that different. Granted I wasn't the sole person who didn't love this book but by and large the vast majority of reviewers on-line loved this book.

Let's get through this issues I had with this book:
1. "We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto". Or maybe we are?! -- My preconceived notions going into this book were waaaay off. I get that this isn't the awesome perfection that is Kagawa's The Immortal Rules but I will admit that I was expecting something much edgier.
I liked the premise of the book and was on board with it until Meghan goes to rescue a loved one who has been taken.
