Keirran will unite the courts or destroy them. Meghan will have to choose between her kingdom and her son. Ash and Puck will fight together once more. The fate of the Nevernever rests on them all, and they're not going down without a fight.
Drama and action abound as the Iron Prince (the errant son of Meghan and Ash) declares war against the Fae as the champion of The Forgotten, threatening not only to tear apart the NeverNever but also the human world. Ethan, with the help of Kenzie and many of the Iron Fey series beloved characters including Puck and Grimalkin, is determined not only to save faery but also his nephew. The quest sees our heroes travel through perilous regions of the Nevernever, the Between and the Dark Wyld, culminating is a heart-stopping showdown.
Though I have to confess I felt the overall resolution of this specific trilogy plot was a bit lacklustre, The Iron Warrior is a satisfying ending to the Iron Fey series and I'm looking forward to Kagawa's next work.

Ethan Chase is a fantastic character. I really liked him when I first met him as a frightened four year old when he was kidnapped by The Iron King and taken into Faery in the first book of the series. Now he's seventeen and he's grown up into a wonderful young man. Brought back to life after dying at the hands of his nephew, Ethan finds himself on another dangerous mission. This time, there may be no turning back. But can he stop his nephew from bringing down the veil between the worlds forever?
I have become addicted to this series. I started reading this book as soon as I had finished reading The Iron Traitor and didn't put it down until I had finished it.
The story continues from the shocking end of The Iron Traitor. I enjoyed meeting all of the previous characters again: Grimalkin, Puck, Meghan, Ash, Leanansidhe, Razor and Kenzie amongst others, as well as the Thin Man, who has a larger role in this tale and is not as bad/creepy as I'd originally thought.
This story is again full of action, adventure, danger and romance. There are a few twists that I didn't see coming and a couple of shocks too. I love the witty dialogue between the characters and the vivid storytelling brought this book to life. I could picture the scenes in my minds eye with ease. In fact, I didn't feel like I was reading at all but watching a movie. As the story unfolded I found myself on a roller coaster ride of emotion and had tears streaming down my face on more than one occasion, as well as sitting on the edge of my seat at others. Ethan' s character has grown a lot. He has become more tolerant of the Fey and less fearful of them. However, Keirran has also grown somewhat in the course of the tale. He has made some huge mistakes, but I still feel that he has a lot to learn. Hopefully his family will help him as he deals with his new responsibilities as The Forgotten King.
It's rare these days to come across a series that grips a reader as much as this one gripped me (or so I have found). I shall miss these characters as they have become my friends. I reached the end of the book with bittersweet feelings; sad that the story (and series) was over, but happy that it ended on an upbeat note. I intend to visit this world as often as I can.
Julie Kagawa has written a fantastic Young Adult series. I love her writing style, which is fast paced and exciting. The flow was also wonderful, as each scene moved effortlessly into the next. She has found a firm fan in me and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future.
Although there is one scene of a sensual nature, it is not explicit. There are, however, scenes that are violent or a little gory. Therefore, I do not recommend this to readers under 15. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book if you love YA fantasy or paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton
The story continues on without any pause and you jump right back in. I missed being in the Nevernever and with the many amazing characters that Julie has created. This book focuses again on Ethan Chase and his intertwined story with his nephew Kierran. I could go into detail and gush about everything but I really don't want to spoil it for everyone who hasn't yet read The Iron Warrior.
The story is captivating, action packed and full of highs and lows for each character involved. Old familiar faces that we have come to love and hate throughout the series are threaded throughout this story and you will love each of them popping in. I can't go any further without mentioning Razor! I bloody love that little gremlin and want one for my own!
The continuation and conclusion of this story is epic! It would have been hard not to love all that was going on, even the darkest parts of the story. It was a very enjoyable read and I may even go back and read them all again!
