It starts out pretty slow but once you give it some time you will get caught up in it.
Really compelling storyline--a little bit different from the norm. This author created a believable world filled with fey and danger. I enjoyed the intricate storyline and in depth characterization.

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.

I don't want to write a long review, but Julie Kagawa wrote a brilliant story and Khristine Hvam does a fantastic job reading. Loved every bit of it!
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.
Nothing wrong with the narrator. This story was not for me. Meghan, the main character, would often change her track of thought. She would be in the middle of describing what she was seeing n than jump to thinking about how her life was n how boring she is. I can't describe it.... The story felt choppy, like the author was too excited about showing the readers an amazing world n stumbled all over her words. Needless to say, most of the time, I was freaking confused. Anyways.... I think this would have made a much better movie than a book. It also felt, at times, a little juvenile.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer .... Something totally different from this.
Grim. He was the only character I liked. I only liked him because, to me, he was copied straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Grim was exactly like the Cheshire Cat.
I was disappointed. I had high expectations for this book. At the end it was just an ordinary story.
Yes I would this is in fact going in my "CLASSICS" so that I can listen to it over and over. I love the freshness of the story and the way there was always something new around every corner. I like the fact that the characters were brought about and we were always discovering more about each one. Love the bit of the fae lore that you can glean from this first book and it was just something I could and will listen to again.
The dance with Ash.
Where Ash told her he may have to kill her if his queen wishes it.
no I did not cry but it made me go straight to amazon and download the next book the minute I finished this one and be thrilled I could get the whisper sync with it.
I love it and I will check out the books for adults too lol but I am really enjoying the young adult right now.
Yes and again and again and again.
I love Khristine. I love how she brings the character's to life with her voices. Makes the book even better.
I finished this book in one weekend.
By far one of my favorite Fey books. The characters are imaginative, funny and likable. I didn't want to put it down.
I almost did not purchase this book because of all the negative reviews. But when it went on sale I purchased it. I am glad I did. I was glad to have a new twist on things. I have listened to a lot of supernatural books and I liked this one. It started off a little slow for me and about an hour into the story I stopped the book and switched into another one. Then came back to this book. I loved it, and can't wait to listen to the next one.
