A quote:
I wished that, for once, faery tales – real faery tales, not Disney fairy tales – would have a happy ending.

Thoughts (Vague Spoilers):
Expectations: GREATNESS. Wow. I expected this to be as good as the first two books in the series, but this caught me by surprise. It’s even BETTER. WOW.

About Setting: Ohhh, the lovely world of fey. More parts of the kingdom of the Iron Fey are explored. The clock tower? I imagined it rusty and ancient and full of ticking clocks. It looked like a scene from a movie!

About Characters: There was major change in all the characters, which meant I fell in love with them more and more. Meghan’s strength changes (for the better of course) and she grows into this strong, adoring heroine that I didn’t see coming from the very beginning of this series. She was clumsy and gentle and also screamish before. She still is -- I think there’s a part of her that always will be -- but she’s grown to take better control of that. Ash and Puck are still so adorably amazing, yet I’ll forever be Team Ash. He’s changed in a way that reveals him so more of him is shown. He’s more comfortable. Through Meghan, that’s only possible. As for Puck, I still love him and his sense of humour, but he’s changed as well. He isn’t as wild and free as a bird like before, but he continues to become the comic relief of the series which I’m glad of. GRIM! I will cry with joy at the mention of him every time. His entrances are always the best and you can’t get enough of him. There were also new characters introduced such as Glitch, Razor, and the Clockmaker.

About Plot: Nevernever is in ruins while the war is in the works. Both the Summer Court and the Winter Courts must prepare for the oncoming attacks. Everyone is in battle mode so there is bound to be some epic action scenes. And the new fighter in the crowd? Meghan Chase, who’s learned how to fight! Man, is she the awesome heroine or what?!
And the ending = heartbreaking!!! I’m just hoping that this series ends nicely! Oh my gosh, The Iron Knight...I’ll be waiting for you!

Overall Rating: Y Y Y Y Y
Five stars, guys. Obviously. I mean, who wouldn’t love this series? It’s the bomb! You will love it! Please, please, please try this series if you haven’t already! It’s my only suggestion at the moment.
