My name is Meghan Chase.Top Two Favourite Quotes...
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.
#1 “You are my heart, my life, my entire existence."
#2 His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. “I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I’m alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away.” One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. “I guess I should’ve warned you that I have a slight possessive streak.”
The Iron Queen is really the first time we get to see Ash and Meghan publicly as a couple, and I think this really changes the dynamic of the novel. Both of them are no longer afraid of hiding their feelings and that really builds a strength in them not only individually, but as a couple as well. Their relationship becomes stronger and more intense in more ways than one and I can't even begin to explain how much more attractive "Openly emotional Ash" is! It's also nice to see Meghan grow in each novel as she is constantly trying to figure out her place in the iron fey world.
Of course, I can't go without expressing my complete bookworm love for both Puck and Grimalkin. One thing this series has always been able to do for me is make me laugh! The comedy is witty, sarcastic and very clever! I don't think this series would be the same without this humorous bickering and frequent one liners woven into the both the plot and characters' personalities!
I'll finish off with this-- if you haven't read the Iron Fey series (or The Iron Queen in particular) then you're completely missing out! It took me longer then it should have to give these books a shot, but once I did, I never looked back! Faeries have never been so badass! Have you read The Iron Queen? Who's your favourite character?
