The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

From Goodreads: My name is Meghan Chase.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

I officially love the Iron Fey series!  I was sucked back into the story immediately and didn't want it to end!

The Iron Queen picks up shortly after The Iron Daughter finished.  Banished from the faery world with Ash, Megan wants to return home to her family.  But as soon as she arrives she realises that her presence may bring harm to her family instead.  The False King wants Meghan and will stop at nothing to get her...

Full of action, romance and humour (usually from Puck or Grimalkin) this is everything I hoped it would be.  I love how Kagawa manages to draw me - all the characters have come to life for me and I adore each and every one of them - including a couple of new characters we are introduced to in this.  And I think Meghan really grows in this - she makes a lot of sacrifices to make sure every one she cares about is safe.

If this had been the final book in the series I have to admit I would have been disappointed in the ending.  As it was I was super pleased to have The Iron Knight on my shelves to read straight away - I think if I'd had to actually wait for it I may have spontaneously combusted!

I'm really looking forward to finding out how this all ends for Meghan, Ash and Puck!
