Ahh...Iron Fey series...how I have missed you! It seems like it has been forever since I got to read about some of my favorite YA characters: Meghan, Puck, Grimalkin, and, of course, Ash. This series absolutely captivated me last year so I was super excited to see that Kagawa was writing a spin-off and providing readers with another novella showing Meghan and Ash's married life.
This novella is full of action, suspense, and plenty of foreshadowing for the next book in the series, The Lost Prince. Basically, it tells the tale of Meghan and Ash reacting to a foreboding prophecy involving their unborn baby. The newlywed couple decides to travel to some of the outer portions of the Nevernever in order to find out more about what the fates have in store for their future.
What really carries this story is the characters. Meghan is continuing to learn how to deal with her new role as Iron Queen while trying to balance her marriage with Ash. Ash is as wonderful as always with his fighting skills and devotion to Meghan. It was also great to see the re-appearances of Puck and Grimalkin.
The setting of the book is as fascinating as ever with Kagawa's descriptions being detailed without being over the top. The Nevernever comes alive through her words and it is wonderful to re-visit this dangerous, but beautiful world. The plot is nothing unusual in the world of the Iron Fey, but it is still entertaining and action-packed. The shortened format does not allow for much embellishing, but this story doesn't really need it.
All in all, this is an enjoyable novella that gives Iron Fey fans a nice epilogue for the characters that we have come to know so well. It also provides great background for what Kagawa is planning to do with the spin-off series.
If you are a fan of The Iron Fey, this short read is a must. Once I started reading it, I was transported back into this wonderful world and I instantly remembered why I loved it so much. You won't be lost if you skip this gem, but there are a few interesting secrets revealed in the Iron Prophecy that will shed some light on what Ethan is in for in The Lost Prince. Enjoy!
Yes. The gang's all here, and it made my heart all kinds of happy to see the four of them traipsing and fighting their way through the Wyldwood like old times - even though they find themselves knee deep in danger facing impossible, almost hopeless, odds once again. It's a happiness tinged with a healthy dose of melancholy, because it is, in a very real sense, their final bow - the last chapter to their story, and it makes me miss them like crazy.
But while an ending, Iron's Prophecy also serves as a beginning, a bridge, for Kierran & Ethan's story in The Lost Prince, so it ended up being very bittersweet for that reason.
Is Iron's Prophecy something you must read? Well, I haven't yet read The Lost Prince, but I'd imagine from the importance of what's revealed in Iron's Prophecy that, yes, this little novella is pretty necessary in the grand scheme of things. But that aside, I mean, it's Puck, Meghan, Ash & Grim... why wouldn't you read this?!
Also, just a small aside. How cute are Meghan & Ash? Seriously, they are one of my favorite YA couples... EVER. I just love them together and how they make each other better and stronger, how they respect and love each other unconditionally. And in Iron's Prophecy you get a lot of good Meghan & Ash moments.
Overall, a bittersweet and poignant "passing of the torch," Iron's Prophecy effectively brings to an end one story and sets the tone and premise of the next.
