Overview

The Iron Prince—my nephew—betrayed us all.

He killed me.

Then, I woke up.

Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world was cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. Now she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Faery—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever.

Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase.To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the fey and human worlds will be changed forevermore.

This is the third book in The Forgotten Trilogy but the seventh book in the Iron Fey series. I loved it! Ethan Chase is a fantastic character. I really liked him when I first met him as a frightened four year old when he was kidnapped by The Iron King and taken into Faery in the first book of the series. Now he's seventeen and he's grown up into a wonderful young man. Brought back to life after dying at the hands of his nephew, Ethan finds himself on another dangerous mission. This time, there may be no turning back. But can he stop his nephew from bringing down the veil between the worlds forever? I have become addicted to this series. I started reading this book as soon as I had finished reading The Iron Traitor and didn't put it down until I had finished it. The story continues from the shocking end of The Iron Traitor. I enjoyed meeting all of the previous characters again: Grimalkin, Puck, Meghan, Ash, Leanansidhe, Razor and Kenzie amongst others, as well as the Thin Man, who has a larger role in this tale and is not as bad/creepy as I'd originally thought. This story is again full of action, adventure, danger and romance. There are a few twists that I didn't see coming and a couple of shocks too. I love the witty dialogue between the characters and the vivid storytelling brought this book to life. I could picture the scenes in my minds eye with ease. In fact, I didn't feel like I was reading at all but watching a movie. As the story unfolded I found myself on a roller coaster ride of emotion and had tears streaming down my face on more than one occasion, as well as sitting on the edge of my seat at others. Ethan' s character has grown a lot. He has become more tolerant of the Fey and less fearful of them. However, Keirran has also grown somewhat in the course of the tale. He has made some huge mistakes, but I still feel that he has a lot to learn. Hopefully his family will help him as he deals with his new responsibilities as The Forgotten King. It's rare these days to come across a series that grips a reader as much as this one gripped me (or so I have found). I shall miss these characters as they have become my friends. I reached the end of the book with bittersweet feelings; sad that the story (and series) was over, but happy that it ended on an upbeat note. I intend to visit this world as often as I can. Julie Kagawa has written a fantastic Young Adult series. I love her writing style, which is fast paced and exciting. The flow was also wonderful, as each scene moved effortlessly into the next. She has found a firm fan in me and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future. Although there is one scene of a sensual nature, it is not explicit. There are, however, scenes that are violent or a little gory. Therefore, I do not recommend this to readers under 15. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book if you love YA fantasy or paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton

I want to read this one because I like all of the rest of her books she has a way of writing that just really enjoy its fast-paced its fantasy that I can easily understand the world and I can picture what's going on and her characters are so well crafted. This one picks up right after the ending of the last book and its pretty naturally gives reminders of what has happened and the implications of the oncoming war. Ethan died for a few minutes and the veil was down so the human world saw the fairies and even though they forgot right after that gave the Forgotten enough power to start the war and cause general chaos. Kierren, Ethan's nephew and former friend is one of the leaders of the forgotten and he is the one that killed Ethan in accordance to the prophecy and that also put Ethan's older sister Megan the Iron Queen at a huge disadvantage because it's her son that is she is going to have to fight against to protect her people and her land. There is a lot of character development in this one, not just with Ethan, but with all of them. Once again, we get to peek at how Ash and Megan are, and Puck and our beloved cait sidhe. There are steps forward in the romance with Ethan and Kenzie, and I loved the moments they had together stolen in their quest to find Annwyl (Kierran's love that is fading, and only kept alive by the cursed amulet that has stolen Kierren's soul). Once they find her they have to find a plan to convince Kierran to destroy the amulet, and hopefully stop the war that the First Queen and her army of Forgotten to stop before the veil is destroyed. I flew through this one. There was a great mix of characters and action that makes me love the fantasy world that Kagawa has written. The ending was good, but I did have some issues. There weren't easy answers for Kierran and his fate after making such bad decisions and treason against the courts. The leaders don't forgive or forget. Also, the open ending for Kenzie and Ethan is where I found my problems. I wanted definite and their future to be more defined, I would have been more happy with theirs if the epilogue wasn't there actually. But overall, I am satisfied with the ending to the series, and will miss these. Bottom Line: Love the characters, romance, and world.

The very last Iron Fey book. Never again will I return to this magical world. No more faeries, no more talking cats and to just stick the knife right into my heart- no more Ashallyn’ darkmyr Tallyn. Is everybody just a little bit depressed, everybody with me? Great, now onto the review! So after the literally ‘killer’ ending of The Lost Prince we find out that Ethan is in fact not dead whew, the Veil between humans and faeries was temporarily lifted during Ethan’s ‘death’, The Dark Muse/The Lady is now more powerful than ever and is ready to wage war against the Seelie, Unseelie and Iron Courts to reclaim the Nevenever and become the one true Queen, and lastly, that Kierran my sweet little Kierran is now a complete and utter lunatic who has lost his soul and is now the champion of the Forgotten and leading this whole damn thing. Ethan must travel through the Nevernever, the Between and the Dark Wyld in order to try and save the world of faerie. In a wicked twist of fate Ethan discovers that he must destroy the amulet his Guro made for Kierran, in order for Annwyl to avoid the Fade. The amulet is now eating at Kierran’s soul and the longer he is without it, the more likely that his new darker, merciless side is going to be permanent. However the amulet is not easily destroyed and the process might well be impossible, also can anyone really destroy the amulet knowing that Annwyl's life will end without it? I absolutely loved coming back to the Nevernever and being reunited with some of my favourite characters from the first series. The plot as always was well paced and filled with action, adventure and plot twists that you never see coming, Kagawa doesn’t pull any punches with this last book, sacrifices must be made, bargains are made and lives are lost. The Iron Warrior was a strong final book and I was so sad to see it end. For me there was far too little Ash & Puck but this wasn't their story and to be honest there could be a whole book dedicated to them and I would still say the same, the characters from the original series will always be my favourite and it’s going to be so hard to let them go. Although I do think it’s only right and long overdue that Puck has a series of his own, surely? His short scenes and one liners just make the book for me! Also Ash will continue to be the love of my life

I can remember reading The Iron King. That book was my first introduction to the magical world of Nevernever. All of the characters in this world including fey, Mab, Puck, and Ash to name a few. I missed reading a few books in this series, including the two prior books in this part of the trilogy that is Ethan's story. Meghan, the Iron Queen's brother. So having not read the other two prior novels, I really was not familiar with the prophecy or Meghan's son, Keirran. Although I had not problems jumping right into this book as I got to visit again with other characters that I have grown to love from this series. I do agree with another reader that I found Ethan to not be as strong POV as Meghan. However, I did find this book to be a good ending to this series. I am sad to leave Nevernever and hope that maybe someday I can revisit it again.
