The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

My name - my True Name - is Ashallayn’ darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…

To cold faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.
Then Meghan Chase - a half human, half fey slip of a girl - smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.
With the unwelcome company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end - a quest to find a way to honor his vow to stand by Meghan's side.
To survive in the Iron Realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice. @goodreads 

OMG! I love Ash so much and I love this book so much ♥

This book picks up basically where the Iron Queen ended. Ash and Robin Goodfellow are going on quests in Nevernever. Ash is looking for something and they have the help of that sweet ish kitty, Grimalkin =)

And I love Nevernever. You just never know what kind of wonderfully, magical stuff you will find there. And things that want to eat you but we won't mention those!


On this journey, the friends run into all kinds of crazy stuff. At one point the run into a huge wolf that helps save them from a giant troll or whatever he was, I forget. Anyway, come to find out the wolf was sent by Ash's mom Mab to help him on his journey. I guess a mom is always a mom even if she did disown you.

And then . . .

someone else returns that really made me mad at first. I was mad as hell because I didn't want that person in the picture, but it turns out that it was fine in the end. Things happen for a reason and it was all good.

Ash has to journey to the end of the world in order to take some tests and if he passes he will get his wish and be able to be with Meghan again. It was a very trying time but love does conquer all, at least in books =) I'm so very happy with this ending and this book is wonderful!
