J'ai adoré cette saga, j'avais commencé en français pour me plonger dans l'anglais avec le tome 3 et celui-ci... Impossible d'attendre! je les lirai en français dès qu'ils sortiront et je m'en réjouis vraiment... car j'ai manqué plein de petits détails avec cette version originale, mon anglais était suffisant pour comprendre mais pas pour "tout" comprendre!
Si vous ne l'avez pas lu, n'attendez plus une seule seconde et LISEZ-LE.
Cette sage est géniale, merci Julie.
Je suis une fan inconditionnelle de Twilight et je pense sincèrement que cette saga avec mon beau Ash rivalise.

“I will be with her again, or I will die. There aren’t any other options”
This is Ash’s journey to find a way to gain a soul so that he can survive the Iron Realm and stand beside the woman he loves. But what must a Faery do to be able to host a soul. The trials will be difficult and heartbreaking. I initially loved seeing the world from Ash’s perspective but I came to really miss Meghan in the story. We get a few glimpses of her but she is missing from the story until the end, for good reasons, but I still missed her.
Ash must also come to terms with the love that he lost so many years ago and his feud with Robin Goodfellow. I really loved Puck in this story. It is clear that Puck is very much in love with Meghan still but he puts everything on the line to help both Meghan and Ash so they have a chance at happiness. We also get to see the loss of Ariella from his side.
“You don't think I regret what I did, every single day? You lost Ariella, but I lost you both! Believe it or not, I was kind of a mess too, Ash. It got to a point where I actually looked forward to our random duels, because that was the only time I could talk to you. When you were freaking trying to kill me!”
Grimalkin of coarse has the key to finding a way to become mortal and will be going along for the journey. He in his great Cat fashion has a wonderful way of looking at the situation. It is often entertaining and slightly frustrating for the other characters involved. The journey is also joined by the big bad wolf of tales.
“I swear there must be like some secret code. All mysterious ancient temples must have a minimum of at least seven thousand steps to the front door.”
It is a journey of seven thousand steps or more. There are a few parts of the story that dragged a little for my and that was mostly due to the emotional angst that Ash was feeling. After being so sure of Meghan in The Iron Queen it was difficult to watch him waver. But in the end there will be no doubt as to who he is meant to be with.
I honestly only have a few small issues with the story but they are all hinged on wanting to see more of Megan and Ash together. This Journey has come to an end and it was a great ride. I look forward to reading the other series set in this world in the future about Ethan and get a peek at Meghan and Ash in the future. It was a beautiful tale with sacrifices, pain, hope and a love so strong it would go to the end of the world.
Ash was always a point of controversy for me when reading the first 3 books. They always hinted something more complex was going on beneath the surface with him, but since the books were all in Meghan's perspective, it didn't really allow us to get to know him. We only got to know him through Meghan's eyes, and unfortunately we don't learn much. So Ash always felt a bit 2-dimensional to me. He felt like a stereotypical brooder to me. There was potential there, but it wasn't fully explored. The Iron Knight throws that all out the window.
I'll say from the get go that Ash's perspective is very different from Meghan's, and it can be jarring. His narration also lacks the sense of awe and joy that Meghan's has. He's still a fullblown brooder. But he's a more interesting brooder. Some people were disappointed Meghan was hardly in this book much, but I'm glad she wasn't. Meghan's story is over. Ash needed his own story to really feel like a fully fleshed out character. And flesh him out Julie Kagawa did.
One thing that's weird to adjust to is actually seeing the fact that Ash does have a much softer emotional core than he lets on. His exterior, what Meghan sees is just constant brooding. He's still the angst master here. But he's also much more vulnerable. It was nice to see a more complex side to Ash that we hadn't really delved into before. This book also delves deeper into his past and relationships with Ariella and Puck, which was great to see. Having his relationships outside of Meghan delved into much deeper was important. We also just learn more about him in general. And not all of it's pleasant, namely his past. Ash was not a good guy for a long time. But I think delving into his dark past made him all the more complex.
Lastly, I want to commend this book for its explorations of what it means to be human in its last half. The first portion of the book was a bit slow, and Ash's brooding started to become a bit much. But the last half is really when Ash starts to develop as a character, as he tackles the ghosts of his past and the pain, but also joy, that comes with being human. However, there is one fatal flaw with the second half, and that's the ending. It was plenty fluffy and cute at the very end, but I feel like Ash didn't really have to sacrifice anything to reunite with Meghan. He grew as a character and is a better man for it, yes. But without giving away too much, one of the facets of being human he had learned to accept gets thrown out the window. I feel like Ash did earn his soul, but that Julie didn't go all the way with it. So that was a disappointment.
But overall, I really enjoyed this. It has a slower pace and is more linear than the other books, but I feel that was warranted here. Meghan's story was one of learning to accept responsibilty and destiny, so the epic narrative served it well. Ash's journey is a more personal one, of discovering just how far your inner strength can go. And it was a great change of pace.
Objecting to this state of affairs, Ash is determined to do the impossible. So, accompanied by Puck, Grim and eventually a few others, Ash sets off for the End of the World to gain a soul. Yeah, going to the End of the World to earn a soul sounds really corny, but it actually, to my surprise, works. It is very well done and cleverer than I thought possible. It is a bit strange to hear the story from a perspective other than Meghan's, but Ash is an interesting narrator, and I didn't mourn Meghan's absence over-much. Because, let's face it, the interaction between Ash and Puck is one of the things that make this series great. And there is a lot of that here.
The story of Meghan has progressed in such a way I cannot wait until I get to the next book. The supporting characters of Ash and Puck as well as the Iron Kingdom setting helps solidify this series as one of the best I have read.
I try not to give spoilers away in my reviews but I am stoked Ash actively pursued a way to be with Meghan. To have Meghan be with anyone else, or even alone, would be devastating to the story. You cannot go wrong with this book!!
