I almost stopped listenening to this book early on, because of the "love language". I am not a fan of expressions of undying love and the same trite gushing that happens in any books. I understand deep love and don't need to be reminded of it by describing the physique and characteristics of the loved one over and over. I felt like this book was written by a teen. A teen that has read a lot, and took a little from many books and made it her own. I would not recommend it to anyone, but I didn't hate it. I used to read harlequin romances as a teen and I wouldn't recommend those either. I just don't like books that are gushy. There was a lot of action, and the book hinted at a previous book and a later book, wihich I don't feel interested in reading.
I like the quippy dialogue with Puck, the condescension from Grimalkin, and the beautiful images are all my favourite parts of this novel. I like Ash and Meghan being together the least. They both seem to get less interesting and a lot more repetitive when they are together or are thinking of being together.
I would have made the love triangle less one sided or I would have done away with the triangle entirely. Ash's overwhelming broodiness and angst is really unappealing.
Grimalkin, as performed by all three voice actors performing the Iron Fey series: Meghan Chase arcs, is the best character. The voice they chose really emphasizes the qualities of the character himself.
I would definitely go and see any movie in the Iron Fey series. It would be a beautiful looking movie, even if it wasn't a fantastic story.
Meghan continues to be the faultless, and fairly uninteresting Mary-Sue she has been since the last novel.
I listen to the audio verson and follow along with the book. Helps me because I don't read that well and listening while following along works for me.
I love Khristine, she brings characters to life with her voices.
No, but I read it in one weekend.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Preteens and maybe even teenagers
My biggest problem with this series is one second it seems like its for a young audience then the next second we are cursing our fool head off. Pick on or the OTHER! It wasn't a bad book if it was meant to be a children's book but with the bad words I assume that's not the audience it was meant for.
Therese Plummer she could of really brought this book to life were as this narrator just wasn't suited for this type of book.
Maybe the one at the prom were the guy is groping the girls but and all the curse words. I have no issue with the cursing but this book would of been way better with out it. It just did not fit in with how childish the book itself seem to be.
I normally finish a book in 1 day 2 at the most depending on the length, that being said I struggled with the first half of this book for a week. It bored me! It had a few moments that caught my attention but seemed to go faster then they came. The second half of the book I listened to in a day because I told myself I had to get done with this book! ( I do not like to start on another with out finishing what I already started) but I did read 2 other books trying to make myself read/listen to the second half of this one. *sigh*
The second half was a lot more entertaining! THANK GOD! It did have a very good ending which made me want to actually read the 3rd book which I started seconds after finishing this one. ( So far its a lot better and DANG me for my need to know what happens....I'm too noisy for my own good lol).
Do not get me wrong this book is good, its just that I started with this writer on a more recent book that I loved! The Immortal Rules ! <<<<so good. So I kind of set myself up for disappointment....this must of been some of her first works so I wasn't expecting the more quirks of a new writer.
A great second book to the series. The character flow well and again I just couldn't wait to get to more of the story.
Great book and really enjoy the Narrator, Khristine Hvam. Continues the story while keeping your interest and leaves you wanting to read the next book.
I really like the narration style, but the story line was frustrating. If the author had allowed the heroine to mature a little it would have been a much better read. I think this story is designed for the teen reader and should not have been listed as a romance.
After listening to Book 1- Iron King... I really was looking forward to next book. It did not disappoint me .
it was easy to get into the story with the reader. The story was good enough I want to read more.
