Starting The Iron Fey

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
: February 1, 2010 by Harlequin Teen
Series: The Iron Fey #1
I feel like I'm way late to Julie Kagawa. Not that I haven't wanted to read her for years, it's just that it's taken so long for it to happen. But better late than never, right?

This book surprised me, in that it wasn't quite what I expected it to be. It reminds me a lot of Alice in Wonderland, except with fairies or fey. It was just a lot more adventure that I anticipated, and I'm not quite sure what to make of that.

I think what was difficult for me is that Megan travels to so many different places that it was hard to really get a grasp and picture each one. At times I'd start to feel transported, except that we'd be moving somewhere else and I'd have to figure things out once again.

I did have quite high hopes for this after hearing so many people rave about Kagawa. So while I really did enjoy my time in the land of fairies, it didn't quite live up to my expectations. But there are a ton more books in the series and I definitely plan on continuing. Hopefully next time since I'm a little more familiar with the surroundings, it will read a bit easier for me.


Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!


  1. I've never read this series. I'm not in the mood for faeries right now but I'll keep it in mind.

  2. I haven't read this series either but I've heard of Julie Kagawa,
