Review: The Iron Knight, by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4)
YA Fantasy Romance
Official Blurb:
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.

What I thought:
Wow!!! I don't even know where to begin with this book! I have to say, first of all, I was really excited to read it because it's in Ash's voice. He's by far and away my favorite character in this series, so that had me getting giddy right there! Then I read the blurb and I was terrified-quaking in fear of the trials I knew that must be coming. So when the earc arrived from Netgalley my love of Ash won out and I dove in immediately.

I think I loved this book from the first word.
