The Iron King: The Iron Fey, Book 1 | [Julie Kagawa]

The Iron King: The Iron Fey, Book 1

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.

Publisher's Summary

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny - one she could never have imagined….

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

    "Backside story to a timeless classic"

    Great alternate story based on a timeless classic "A Mid-Summer's Night" Love the way modern technology has been spun into the world of the "Fey".

    Story
    "Great story and amazing narration!!"
    Would you listen to The Iron King again? Why?

    Yes I would, the narrator was amazing and brought every new creature Meghan encountered to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was immediately pulled into the magical world that Julie Kagawa has created with this Iron Fey series. I found myself wanting to keep reading and keep discovering all the creatures that lived in the Never-Never.


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Khristine breathed life into every creature Meghan encountered, there was always a clear distinction on which character was speaking because of the wonderful narration and repertoire of voices that she brought to this story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I was sad.... I was happy... I was excited... I basically felt every emotion imaginable with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book reminded me of Alice In Wonderland mixed with The Chronicles of Narnia. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone that loves a good faerie novel. Pick up this audiobook and let your imagination soar. On a sidenote, I must say that Khristine Hvam does an amazing thing with narrating this book. The audiobook was fantastic! One of the best I have heard thus far.

    "Awesome"

    This was a great book. I never got bored or wanted to fast forward the narrative. This was more of a PRODUCTION then just a read. Julie Kagawa is an excellent writer and Khristin Hvam is a fantastic narrator! Ready for book 2!

    "Fasinating!"

    When I first started listening to this I was captivated by the idea of the Never Never and the Fae. A unremarkable 16 year old girl is destined to change the Fae world forever. Loved listening to this book!

    "Must Read!"

    This is a must read series! The story is well written, the characters are likable from the start. The narrator is great! What is really great...this is not just another fantasy story. There is enough reference to the familiar to keep you going, but the content keeps turning so you really have to hang on.

    Love it!

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.
