About: Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
My thoughts: I didn’t know how I’d like Ash and Megan as adults but I like them very much. This isn’t like Kagawa’s shorts, this one is actually quite long and took me a couple of sittings to finish it.
This part of the story follows Ash and Megan to their first Elysium at Tir Na Nog. Yep, Ash is facing Mab and Megan is facing Oberon. Nothing goes as planned and a plot for the next three books is revealed in a big way.
Having recently finished The Lost Prince by Kagawa, I was very happy I read Iron’s Prophecy. It filled in a blank in my head and so through Ethan’s story I kept thinking about the prophecy. I think it was a very good lead up and tied the two series together beautifully.
My only nitpick is not knowing how much time had passed since the end of The Iron Knight Sure, Megan is pregnant and it’s her first Elysium so I can assume it’s a year, but in Faery time moves differently so I would have appreciated a road sign somewhere.
Either way, Kagawa stuns us with her lyrical prose and I love reading everything she puts out there. Look for my review of The Lost Prince soon! Also, on a personal author note, Kagawa had shown me how to add another three books to my own The Ferryman and the Flame series. I think I might be still writing parts of this story twenty years from now if I don’t watch it.
