Where Have You Been, Ash? Iron Fey Series

Let it be said that sometimes The Bookish Snob is a little *cough* slow to catch on. All this year, I've been seeing the hype around the Iron Fey series, seeing Team badges for Ask and Puck and I promise, I made a mental note to read the series. But one thing led to another and before I knew it, the books got buried under others and forgotten.

I was on Facebook the other day and the wonder Stacey Clifford posted a quote from the series. It sparked my interest and after chatting back and forth with others, I decided to start reading. HOLY FREAKING COW! Bad Bookish Snob for being a procrastinator!! At first I thought, "Hmmm this Puck is amazing. So funny and with a cocky swagger... how will Ash ever compare?" Then the man himself appeared and the rest is history! I swear the Winter Fey had me from hello *insert swoon* so much that I've dedicated the rest of the post to little snippets from him that I loved and I hope anyone reading, who has been putting this series off like I did.... STOP! Hahaha

"Something cold touched my cheek, and I glance up to see snowflakes in a lightning-riddled sky. It was eerily beautiful, and I shivered. "What will happen then?"
Ash steepped closer. His fingers came up to brush the hair from my face, sending an electric shock through me from my spine to my toes. His cool breath tickled my ear as he leaned in.
"I'll kill you," he whispered, and walk away, joining his brothers at the table. He did not look back"
~ The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

"What do you want of me, Meghan?" he asked, a low thread of anguish flickering below the surface. Tears blurred my vision, all the fear and heartache of the past few days rising to the surface.
"Just you," I whispered. "I just want you."
He closed his eyes. "I can't do that."
~ The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

I will add though, this part by Puck KILLED me and put tears in my eyes:

"I would have gotten you there!" Puck roared. "Me! You don't need his help! Don't you trust me to keep you safe? I would've given everything or you. Why didn't you think I'd be enough?"
~The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I'll accept any "Told you so's" now LOL

Lol fear not Belinda, I still haven't read this series either even though I own all three books.

Based on the quotes I need to have read this one ages ago though. I best get caught up before the fourth book releases.

Deea said...

Oh, God... Been there, done that. *blush* And now I'm almost the last person on Earth who hasn't meet this Ash yet.:)) I guess it's time to stop procrastinating too and catch up. Yeah. Soon. I promise. In a few days or so. But hey, look on the bright side! We get to read all the books back to back and enjoy the awesomeness that is Prince Ash more!:D

I'll come back to chat. Promise. Thanks for the snippets!

*heart breaks again* Ohhhhh, Ash. Have you read the rest of the series? Because he gets more amazing. <3

Must Love Books said...

Ash, Ash, Ash, Ash, Ash *swoon* I fell so madly in love with him. Have you read the rest of the books yet? He gets so unbelievably amazing in Iron Queen. I don't know how anyone can be team puck when there is ASH!

Belinda said...

@Alexa - You SO need to start reading! Ash AND Puck are amazing and I'm so conflicted because they both just tug on my heart strings. I went into The Iron Daughter a firm Team Ash but now I'm wavering. Puck can lay the swoon on pretty good!

Belinda said...

@Deea Hahahaha I'm glad to see I'm not the only procrastinator! I've had all the books on my Kindle and finally started reading. I can't wait to see whether you'll fall head over heels in love as well :)

Belinda said...

@Lucia - I'm in the middle of The Iron Daughter at the moment and I'm in knots. One moment I'm sighing over how awesome Ash is and then I'm frustrated because he becomes cold. My BFF keeps telling me "Belinda, he's as tortured as they come... keep reading!" And then there's Puck. There was this scene that just broke me! Can I have both?

Belinda said...

@Must Love Books He gets better???? I can't wait until I read it then. I got approved to review The Iron Knight and I heard it's in his point of view. Do I need to prepare myself?

It is an amazing series! Plus Iron Knight is ALL about Ash! The books is beyondd AMAZING.

Amber @ Awesomesauce said...

This was a great post. I loved the quotes. I am going to start The Iron Queen next!! I love me some Ash. I almost forgot how much!!

Kristina's Books & More said...

Ash had me from, "I'll kill you." Love him!!! Both guys are great characters. I'm currently in re middle of The Iron Queen.

Sassy said...

I'm so glad your loving them girl. What till you read The Iron Knight, nothing but Ash! I've even dedicated my FB page to him and that book Lol. TEAM ASH!! ;D
