This is the 3rd audiobook I have ever listened to and I absolutely loved it! It was extremely well done. Khristine Hvam did an amazing job with the voices, pacing, everything. The story was very good. Kagawa does a beautiful job building a unique, yet believable Faery world. I adored this story and the rest of the series. The Iron Fey has become one of my favorite series to date. Highly recommend at least starting with the audiobook as there are a lot of gaelic terms that could be difficult to pronounce which slows down reading. =)

Let me start off by saying The Iron King is a wonderfully written book, and Julie Kagawa has created a great new world within it. It took me a little longer than usual to really get into it, but that was about me and not the book or the author. Once the story took a turn and Meghan Chase and Puck made it to the world of fairies, I was forced to ignore my day-to-day stresses and focus fully on the story.
Meghan is my favorite kind of heroine. She cares more about her family's and friend's safety more than her own. She proves this time and time again in ways that make the story interesting and intriguing...and worth continuing.
I love the triangle between Meghan, Prince Ash, and Puck and look forward to seeing Puck's next move. He does not seem like the kind of man to go down without a long and hard fought battle.
This book is so good that I immediately bought the next three in the series in order to find out where Meghan's promises - and heart - take her next.

Even though I really loved this series, it was more for YA, which is great, but I;m more of "in the heat" kind of book gal... that being say, this book has storyline that is loving, sad, wonderment and strong bonds of friendship. The story moved a little slow for me, but it did keep me interested through out, it makes you wonder....the what if?? this is a great series for young adults, no bad laungue, no sexual content , just a very good story of friendship, love and loss..
I really like this story but some of the parts are frustrating. She is a little slow and getting things but it still is a great story. It is read Very well. I am looking forward to the next book.
Of course! It is a unique story that combines the upsurge of technology and waning of imagination and folklore in a fairyland setting!
I loved the Fey characters and the Ever, Ever world! Megan Chase really comes into her own as a heroine who is half human and half Fae. Her love of her brother, Ethan and persistence in trying to rescue him from Faery World is inspiring! It reminds me a lot of the movie "The Labyrinth" with David Bowie where he steals her baby half-brother to lure her to his world because he is in love with her. Combining that with the technological fey and Shakespeare's Faery court made it a wonderfully rich with adventure!
it's a book that you won't want to put down. I hope that all of the books in the series will be on audio. and that audiobooks will carry them. I would recomend this book to anyone I know.
Ok story line, not a riveting book where you can't put it down. Will read the next one to see if it develops more. Wish the author had more of a sense of humor. Something I would listen to full the gap if I did not have something else that I know was better such as a book written by Brandon Sanderson - Mistborn or Jim Butcher - Dresden Files.
Sure. I could give her a chance because I'm a sucker for paranormal romantic novels.
not exactly but I don't mind doing it in one sitting especially towards the end of the book.
The story was pretty slow in the first half of the book. I guess the author wanted to add some mystery to the novel. Also, the first half of the book is more for the giggly teenage girls than for a young adult in her early 20s, but it does get better. There were times when I wanted to throw up in the first chapters but I got over it.
Yes, it is well written and interesting.

Puck and Ash.
It is a easy, predictable book that you can easy follow even when distracted. It was well written and has more action then I would expect.
