A modern Fae novel mingles with Shakespearean characters? Say "Hello" to one new series obsession of mine! From the first page of The Iron King, I was enthralled and thrown right into the book. Maybe it is indeed magical.
I liked Meghan's character. She had her strong points and weak points. Flaws and traits that stood out to make her seem real. She was a bit stubborn at times, casual, loyal, and brave.But, her driving loyalty and bravery became her weaknesses. Other points that made her feel as if she were real. These are traits that are found in people in the everyday real-world, and I quite enjoyed that. I wasn't reading flat, fake characters... or characters of people that were "just too good to be true". Prince Ash. Well, I would be lying if I said I didn't think fondly of him. I distinctly remember calling him: "literary eye-candy".
There were a few times, though, were I felt both his and Meghan's "feelings" were a little rushed maybe- but this tends to happen a lot in books as of recently and I've started getting to a point where I think that if the romance is done well, then I might not mind the rushing as much. It just depends, I guess. I was happy to see there was nothing major as far as romance- not a huge rush- and I don't want to spoil anything, of course, but glad to see that there's plenty of room for development for the coming installments that I still have yet to read.The details put into this were obviously done with great care and style. There were such rich descriptions- beautiful and vivid- I could practically imagine everything as if it were right in front of me.
It was action-packed and emotional. Compelling and heart-stopping.There really are no amount of other words to say other than: I loved this book! I certainly will be continuing on with this series and can't wait to read more!
