I wanted to give this book five stars I really really did, but some parts of the story I just found missing something. Maybe because I'm older then a high schooler, and some of the love triangle storyline is just not for me anymore. I enjoy the throwback to Shakespeare. I had to read a lot of his work during school.
Khristine Hvam performance was great! She brought the characters and story to life.

I loved this book because I friends, am a dreamer. If your into the make believe, fairy worlds, knights, mischievous friends w/ cool abilities, princesses and finding out what you hoped was always true really is, this is the book for you. Hey, life, real life, its hard and serious and ugh, at times, while it's a gift, can be draining. This series takes you to a place you always hoped existed. A place that is full of magic or as they say "glammer." Now, I'd never imagioned it as life threatening but I'll take what I can get.
The only thing that made me question if I was going to like this series but eventually fell away was this; the author uses characters from A Midsummers Night Dream as a foundation. At first I thought, how unoriginal. This world is so amazing she seriously could have made up her own as all the other characters are completely her own and absolutely amazing! But, as I stated above, it fell away as I continued to read. It was a foundation to the premise that what we read is actually truth and this world exists.
I'd love to start my day as I always do only to find out I'm something so much more interesting than I thought I was.
It's got adventure, some romance, fight scenes, cool characters and a world so creative you'll want to live there.
I'm a long way from a teen but I love this book and the series. The characters are interesting and compelling. It has romance and adventure. I have a huge crush on the Winter Prince and Puck! The narration was great, capturing all the different characters. I especially enjoyed the cat.
I've listened to the whole Meghan Chase arc of the Iron Fey series now including The Iron King, Winter's Passage, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen, Summer's Crossing, The Iron Knight and Iron's Prophecy. Largely due to this book and, if we're entirely honest, the sale recently on the titles. I am also going to continue listening to the Iron Fey series in the new Ethan Chase arc.
Julie Kagawa paints lovely word pictures and her battles are suspenseful.
Khristine Hvam performs each character in a distinct voice which makes a conversation between characters a lot easier to follow. It also makes Grimalkin a lot more entertaining.
It was expected and inconclusive - as is expected from the first title in a series.
She does distinct voices for all the characters.
I would definitely go and see this movie. It would be beautiful and it would have insane special effects and, I have a feeling, great music.
This is good for anyone that likes love triangles, or can get past a love triangle and likes Fae stories.
Loved the book, loved the narration -- and I've just started book 4, so obviously I became invested in the characters. Don't let the bad reviews throw you off...I really enjoyed it.
Loved the story. Modern vs. old fantasy. It's a good time for elvenkind and their worlds.
Iron Druid series.
Yes, but there's no denying that nasally hnnng is rather annoying, especially since it comes and goes. She's a wonderful actress but at times her voice sounds like she's got the worst cold ever! She also can't pronounce the word "feral."
Not extreme, just enjoyable.
I'm always happy to find a new series. I'm looking forward to the rest of the books.
I would recommend this book to my teenaged daughter.
I love the fantasy of it all. The familiarity of Oberon and Mab but with the twist of the Iron Fey is very intriguing.
The narrator does a good job of speaking for all the characters and still sounds believable.
It just me
I am in the middle of it right now, can't wait to pick it up again.
I am not sure about her voice.. Don't love it but learning to because of story..
Look... What was that??? Did you see that??? AM I GOING CRAZY!!
NOT FOR KIDS YOUNGER IN 16.. BAD LANGUAGE!!
Sewing is Fun
No,there is to many books out there to read
It was just fun.
I got a smile now and then
Megan could be a little more in charge
The storyline was intriguing at the outset, and the characters were certainly interesting. But the unfolding of the story didn't quite live up to the expectation that was set with the description. Eventually, the story got to the point where it just went on and on, and I was wishing it would just wrap up and send everyone home!
The narrator spoke well, and with good enunciation. She was youngish-sounding, however this fit well with the book and I think she did quite a good job.
