Goodreads Info:

 Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.


Unless he can earn a soul.




To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.


Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.


With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side.


To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.


And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

My Thoughts: (I gave this book 4 stars)

Wow, just wow! The Iron Knight surpassed my expectations for being the final book in the series. The whole book was so beautiful written from the front page to the ending word. I am so very sad to know that this is the end for our friends we grew to love in Never Never. I wanted to read it again and again so I could deny myself that thought. I found myself crying in the end of the book it was just so astonishing and memorable. You will want to read the whole series again to have the feeling of these wonderful characters always in your mind. 

This book is taken from former Prince Ash's POV and I must say I was not sure how I would like it because up until now I was loving that Meghan was telling the story but it was really fun and refreshing being told from someone who you find has lost so much and yet has so much to gain. In this book we find out more about Ash's life before he meet Meghan, and also there is a new friend we meet along there journey to where Ash need to go to earn a soul so he can be with his true love Meghan forever. Ash will be put through many test and trials though-out the books which will be the true test for his love for Meghan. I love that fact that someone comes back into the story, someone who you never would think would. It is great to hear it from Ash's POV and feel how he feels about this someone is has missed for so long... but what about Puck? Well, Good ol' Puck is still there and helping along side Ash even until there very end. Although it leaves me feeling like will Puck ever find love as Ash has? I still had a few questions after I finished reading but for the most part I totally loved The Iron Knight. Julie Kagawa has done it again. I could never do a prefect review for this book or any of her books to do Julie's written work justice but let me tell you one thing - The Iron Knight as the rest of the series is by far the best books I have read in a very long time and I would so recommend them to anyone would wants to get lost in a world of fairies, monsters, magic, battles, mythical creatures, but most of all LOVE!
