Review – The Iron Raven by: Julie Kagawa

You may have heard of me…

Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Prankster, joker, raven, fool… King Oberon’s right-hand jester from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The legends are many, but the truth will now be known as never before, as Puck finally tells his own story and faces a threat to the lands of Faery and the human world unlike any before.

With the Iron Queen Meghan Chase and her prince consort, Puck’s longtime rival Ash, and allies old and new by his side, Puck begins a fantastical and dangerous adventure not to be missed or forgotten.

We are back in Faerie for this grueling adventure featuring none other than the famous Puck! The Iron Raven showcases a lot of internal struggle but I was SO happy to see the whole gang back together again.

I adored seeing Meghan and Ash again. As much as I loved Puck in previous books, I almost felt like they were the highlight for me again in this book. Puck struggles with himself so much in this book that I just felt like I couldn’t connect with him as much as I had in previous series.

With our “love interest”, Nyx, she seems amazing, but I didn’t feel the sparks between her and Puck. At least not until the very end. She seemed “so old” with the way she spoke. Granted, I know she is “old and wise” but Puck is so youthful and I guess I expected something similar for him. I hope their connection becomes stronger in future books.

The very last paragraph was definitely a kicker and made me very excited for the next book. I think Julie did an amazing job of bringing her readers back into a world we all know and love. I am super excited to see where she takes this series!
