Third Book

Ivy has to risk everything to try to save her winter knight not caring what repercussions there could be for her court, her people, or anyone else she cares about. I understand why she would want to risk so much for someone she loves but still some of her actions frustrated me so much especially after everything her mother the queen did to try to protect her and their people. One moment it seems like she is going to win and be alright the next it seems nothing can go right and she will lose everything. Though this desire to save her knight makes even more trouble between her and her betrothed. Ardan keeps showing more and more of who he truly is and that there might be something redeeming there. I am curious to find out what will happen next and how things with this love triangle will continue.

Desperate Times, Desperate Defeat

The Winter Court stares down the barrel of upheaval in this third installment in Bekah Harris’s IRON CROWN FAERIE TALES saga.

Harris weaves narrative magic in an entry of this story that culminates in a dire endgame hatched by Ivy Hawthorne’s wicked aunt, who stands to gain the winter throne if she wins a deadly contest with her sister, and Ivy’s mother, Queen Lyric.

Simultaneously, Ivy’s desperate attempt to save Barrett Forbes generates even more conflict within Ivy’s betrothed—the Unseelie Prince, Ardan.

GAME OF SHADOWS is a winding tale of alternating victory and defeat—one that lands Ivy in a difficult position, where her duty and her personal convictions continue to be at odds with one another, and where her decisions will continue to play a role in deciding the fate of the kingdom she is destined to inherit.

Nikki Delgado continues to mesmerize with a voice that has become as tied to this story in my mind as its own characters. I can’t get enough of this intriguing world Bekah Harris has imagined!

Love this series!

This is an incredible series! The writing is sublime and transports you immediately to a new world and an incredible set of characters. I was so impressed with the first two books, and this one is no exception! I’m a huge fan and look forward to finishing the series.

Game of Shadows

I really loved this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire book. Princess Ivy must go and rescue Bear and her Nan from Alena. Queen Lyric is forced to challenge Alena to the Game of Shadows to try to and stop Alena for good. Secrets to the heir of the Seelie Court and so much more. I can't wait to see what happens next!

3.25 STARS, ready for the game ★★★✩✩

This book is for you if… you've enjoyed the series so far and want to continue supporting the characters on their journey.

⤐ Overall.
Well, I did like the story of Game of Shadows, mostly. Some things didn't make sense to me. The one I can recall still is that a very certain character had a distinct change in behaviour that just happened a little too fast to be authentic. It also didn't fit with his past actions either. Since all the books in this series are super short, however, it's not like I can complain too much about it - it's just what happens.

On the plus side, I really came to appreciate the overall diverse dynamics of Bekah's plots, which is especially outstanding if you consider the limits of the format Bekah tells the story in.

Yup, that's it. That's the entire review. Enjoy this floofy pupper instead:


⤐ What’s happening.
Being the princess of the Winter Court is not exactly what Ivy thought it would be:
⇢ time to get aquainted with being a fairy
⇢ gets to know her real family
⇢ intimate moments with Bear

But actually, it's a little something like this:
⇢ enemies around every corner
⇢ abducted loved ones to rescue
⇢ everyone she knows is in danger

So begins her quest to save her kingdom, her family, and her love.
