Pledge your allegiance to the Iron Court!

As you know there has been murmurings on the Twitterverse and other places for a while about the Court Blog Tour, you can visit the link and find out who reigns supreme with Iron and where those wussy little Summer and Winter supporters throw in their hats. I feel very privileged to be a part of the Iron Court because obviously that is the most superior race of fey. Each tour stop listed will have something super special to give away. So check that link and make sure you know what is up. You can also check out Grim and Meghan talking about the tour over on Julie Kagawa’s blog.

A Plea for Iron Court

Everyone always flocks to Ash and Puck and their cutesy little fey ways but no one loves Machina. As you can see above he is quite a bit hotter than even I had imagined him and since book one I have been a loyal Iron Court member. If you are getting tired of parlor tricks and icy swords you can skip on over here to the Iron Court where technology reigns supreme and we are always plugged into something.

The Iron Court hate is a bit hypocritical! Why? Because fey do not exist without humans. We in the times of old imagined the Summer and Winter Courts and therefore Ash and Puck and their brothers and sisters were born. However we live in technological times now, how can we loathe what each and every one of us reveres? We brought Machina, Iron Horse and his crew into existence so we are responsible for their creation.

How many of you are reading this on a lap top, desk top, iPod, mobile phone, tablet computer or some other wizardry of technological advancement? I say be true to yourself! Join the Iron Court for you love of everything tech and become a part of the winning team. And oh, we shall win.

Otherwise go live in Amish country and stay the heck off my gadgets! Every time you touch an Apple product a new Iron Gremlin is born.

Leave your allegiance to Machina the true Iron King in the comment field.

Review: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

From Goodreads: My name is Meaghan Chase.

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 stay by my side. Drag me into the core of a conflict so powerful, I’m not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

This is the third book I have read and reviewed by Julie Kagawa. I recently learned that this series is continuing and I couldn’t be happier. With every book I read I am more entranced by the world that Kagawa has weaved with her unique look at technology and her stunning use of Fey lore.

Kagawa is a masterful story teller and I am so happy to have found her series. Meaghan has grown so much since the first book and I feel as I have watched her grow up and into the kind of heroine that deserves to win the fight and the boy. In this latest installment of the Iron Fey series all is decided but not without friendship, love and sacrifice.

Meaghan realizes that it might just be that even though her and Prince Ash are exiled from the Nevernever she still may never be able to go home to her human family. The False King is hunting Meaghan down, he wants what he believes she stole from him, the Iron Glamor, the power of The Iron King Machina that Meaghan battled and killed with the wooden arrow and her Summer magic.

I can’t go into very much detail without ruining the plot of the story so just rest assured fans of the Iron Fey series that you will be once again blown away by Kagawa’s plot and torn into a million pieces by Puck and Ash. Each book in this series continually shapes the characters and is even more impressive than it’s predecessor.

I am waiting on tenterhooks for the next book titled The Iron Knight and all Goodreads has as information on the book is two words “Ash’s story.”, and a release date of 2011.

If you enjoy Faerie lore or fantasy at all and haven’t picked up the first book in this series The Iron King, or the second The Iron Daughter do so now you will not be disappointed! review of The Iron King and The Iron Daughter. Just like the content inside the books each cover for this series is continually more visually pleasing. I cannot wait to see the cover of The Iron Knight!

FTC Disclosure: I downloaded an egalley of this book from Netgalley.
