2010 Harlequin Teen, YA PNR, 363 pages
Hear, hear, sometimes the impossible does happen. I will step down from my high throne where I say that PNR YA never manages to snare me, because it did. It finally did.
It just had something about it that made it impossible for me to put it down. I just could not let go of this story. I also liked that it was so easy and just flowed. And I always did like wicked fairies.
But now I will rip it to pieces because that is what I do when I like a story. Why oh why does immortals fall for silly young girls? Really?! If Ash is that old I would think he would rather fall for a woman than a 16 year old girl. Also why is Ash still young? I could understand an immortal girl being young forever, I have not changed that much since I was 16. I can into myself quickly, my face may just be a bit sharper and I liked a bit older, but still. But a boy? Who in the right mind wants to stay a boy when he can be a man? Can Ash even shave yet? Also, their love story, suddenly it just was *eye roll*
There now I complained a bit. Did these things ruin it for me? Absolutely freaking not. Who cares about silly immortals who should know better. Summer and winter fell for each other, awww, loving that. Meghan was nice, Ash was secretive, Puck was fun, the cat was great, the evil guys were evil, the pace was good and I truly enjoyed the ride.
Luckily I had the library get book 2 at the same time so I will start that one soon and see what happens to these people. How it all will end I have no idea of.
Yes, I do recommend it.
Iron Fey #1,5
2010, 59 pages, ebook
What can I say about short stories...well, it was nice to read it after having read The Iron King, I got to read about the way to the Unseelie court. Of course that just made me wonder where exactly book 2 begins.
I felt the connection between Ash and Meghan a bit more in this one, and I also thought Meghan was a bit too nice. Take the chance and run girl. Especially if your man says he will kill you if he must.
I am not a fan of short stories but it worked, still I was not taken by it as I was with book 1.

It was not as good as book 1, something was missing for me, but still this was a really good book. Often book 2 is a let down and this did not happen here, I was just bugged by a few things. But it still had me caught in its grip and would not let go
I think most of my problem was the love triangle. It is so done, please, no more. If you love someone you love that someone, especially when you do anything for said person. You do not suddenly start thinking if you love this other guy. Why the girls do not get dumped I do not know. Is anything worth that heartbreak. How do you know she will be true in the future then? Ya heroines has commitment issues,
And I do get why Ash is cold in this one, but Meghan does not seem to grasp the danger of the Winter court. Come on they might eat ya. He is playing it safe. Sure he is arrogant but still, she should get it. But then she is a bit headstrong.
But still I like it, and that does not happen often with YA books like this series. Kagawa is just that good. Even if I wish it had been as good as book 1, but at least it made me want more.
Nr 1 yes, 1,5 ok, book 2, nah
