Summary from Goodreads:

My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

How can a book be so freaking good?! Honestly, I can't even begin to describe how awesome was this book. But yes, I know I have to try xD

So, at the beginning of this book we see Meghan and Ash returning to her house in order to keep their lives (human normal lives that is) going on, specially since they have been banished from the Nevernever... But this doesn't change the way Ash loves Meghan. It's amazing how much he have changed from the beginning of the series, you know? Before he was cold and distant and "cool" and now he is completely devoted to Meghan but he still manages to be cool, hahaha. And yes, in the end Meghan chose Ash over Puck and although I knew this was going to happen I can't help but feel a little bit sad, I mean, Puck is so cute and funny and annoying he is just great! Sorry, I'm not Team Puck or Team Ash, I love them both (and totally happy with that, hahahaha).

Back to the story (sorry!). Meghan's plan to live a normal life now with Ash don't last very long, The False King sent spider-hags to kidnap Meghan and bring her to the Iron Kingdom.

I think that in this book I loved the way Meghan changes, too. She is more mature in so many ways now and she starts to believe in herself too. Of course she would love to go back to her normal life but she also knows that by doing so her human family would be in great danger and that her friends in the Nevernever were going to suffer if the False King wasn't stopped.

The end of this book had me crying and mopping in my bed and thinking and re-thinking about the whole book. I believe that's why I'm loving these books, I just don't finish them and pass to the next read, I think about them a lot.

"The Iron Knight"... here I come! Woohoo!
