The Iron King – Julie Kagawa


This book directly lands you in the world of faeries, bogeymans, goblins, cait siths, in one word- in the ambience of great comedy play “Midsummer’s Night Dream”, written by Shakespeare. I would say, this book took me to my childhood, where I used to dream about all those faeries and monsters and used to love that ” Tinker Bell” faery.

Just read it and again you’ll start feeling and dreaming about another world of faeries and feys, that exist, somewhere, simultaneously with our world. So, this novel is about a girl called, Meghan Chase, who is half-human, meaning half fey, half human. But, she is as ignorant about this real identity of hers as we are in the beginning of the book.

She comes to know about her identity, when she goeas on the quest of finding her blue-eyed, four year old, brother, Ethan (whom the Iron king kidnaps and exchanges him with a monster changeling). Thus, Meghan enters her fey world with Puck (Robin Goodfellow) who has been her friend since so many years, under the garb of human mask. She gets to know about the rivalry between “The Summer Courts” and “The Winter Courts”, and her own identity, that she is he daughter of King Oberon.

There she meets Grimalkin, Ash and other characters, but only the Winter King Ash, Grimalkin (cait sith) and Puck, help her to find Ethan. She finally, gets successful in relieving Ethan from the clutches of The Iron King (his court of iron feys, is the third world, that surviving in the faery land without the two courts knowing about it).

Loads of hurdles and difficulties, shefaces during her quest an of course, like any girl, fallsin love with our handsome king charming, Ash, who also reciprocates the same feeling for her. Her journey in the “Nevernever”, the faery land is scintillating, exquisite and amazing.

An awesome book to read and experience the faery world!!
