The Final Iron Fey book....

First thoughts:
I fell in love with Ash all over again, reading in his POV was better than I imagined. And to really see inside his mind and know what he was feeling was something that allowed me to know Ash even better. And imagery in here was very detailed and imaginative. Kagawa really painted us a picture to the landscapes that the characters had to cross. I was torn between emotions in this final book, so much happened and I felt the loss right alonside Ash. I really thought this was a very good conclusion to the Iron Fey series.

Short summary:
Ash is on a mission to become mortal, he wants to find a way back to meaghan so that he can be by her side and truly be the knight he wants to be. But he can't do that being a fey. The Iron would kill him and so Meaghan banished him in turn so that she wouldn't lose the one person she loves the most. But little does Meaghan know that Ash is going to literally go to the end of the world to become mortal so that in turn he can be by her side.

Ash embarks on the long and hard journey with Puck the laughable jokester, the big bad wolf who literally is one of the scariest wolfs out there, the cat we all know and love who would soon leave you in danger only to save himself and the last person someone they all thought was long gone but has mysteriously shown up. The five of them make their way to the end of the world, they encounter the River of Dreams, creatures who are tiny but vicious and various other obstacles, one being a set of trials he must pass in order to become mortal. But the hardest obstacle yet is whether Ash TRULY wants to leave behind his heritage and become something he used to despise himself; a mortal human.

Last thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book and series and was sad to see it come to an end but like all good things they all have to end sometime right? Kagawa is a gifted writer and has a way with description that I envy and in this last book she gave the greatest gift she could ever give; she took us inside Ashe's mind and allowed us to see who he really is. Can't wait to see what else this author has in store but for now will be satisfied with what I have been given. I'd recommend this series to any fey lovers and can't wait to see what others think!
