What Say You Saturday - The Iron King

(Picture - Credit to Ren)

Ren @ Ren's Rambles has created a weekly meme for bloggers. I think it's a fantastic way to get opinions on books you are on the fence about reading AND it's a great way to fangirl (or boy) about books you've read and really loved. Or didn't love. Either way! Want to play? Here are the rules:
  • Pick a book that's already been released (any genre is fine) that you've read and have a strong opinion about OR a book you are on the fence about reading & want more opinions on.
  • Create a post with the book's cover, title, and author, and explain your feelings for the book or why you aren't sure about reading it.
  • Include a link back to Ren's Rambles in each post.
  • Put your post up on Saturdays and link up in the linky at the bottom of the current What Say You Saturday post on Ren's Rambles. Link to the post itself, not just your blog.
  • You may use my What Say You image as long as you credit me for it or feel free to make your own.
  • Visit the other posts and give your opinion on their choices!

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.

If you can believe it, I have yet to read this series. I'm not big into the whole Fae thing, so it's turned me off of this one. I've heard some good things, but I need a few more opinions. Convince me, people! Why should I read this series?? I think if I do, I'd like to find it on audio. That might help me get through it for sure. Let me know!!

Happy Saturday!


  1. Oh, man! I had some terrible experiences with fey books a few years ago and it kept me from checking this out for ages. What can I tell you now that I have...?

    Do it. Do it NOW. You are missing so much!

    The Iron King is totally and utterly fabulous. It starts out a tad slow, but by the time you start finding out what is really happening you'll feel as if your fingers have been glued to the book or enchanted so that you are obsessively turning the pages. Funny, exciting, beautiful, exquisite, romantic, memorable... Whatever you are looking for, this book has it. (It even has a talking cat.)

    I could go on all day about how much I loved The Iron King, but ultimately it's up to you. Although, I will likely be doing a giveaway related to it in the future, so if you don't end up rushing out for some reason (even though you should!) you could always keep your eyes peeled for that.

    Anyway, now I'm just rambling so I'm gonna stop. I just hope that my words have effectively conveyed the love and enthusiasm that I feel toward this book, because it totally blew me away. :) The only reason I gave it four stars rather then five was that I wanted some breathing room for the author to be able to get better.

  2. I haven't read this series either. I had gotten the last from NetGalley, but couldn't get the others from my library in time. I may have to try & get them. Especially after Kathy's comment. The Iron Fey was actually my first What Say You Saturday(& most popular). Haha Where was Kathy then? ~LINK~

  3. I'm trying SOOO hard to start this series but someone has ruined the only copy the library has of the first one, and they havent ordered more yet. wtf! So frustrating! I dont live in a big enough town to buy it here either. sigh.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
