The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Meghan Chase has been banned from faery land.  She might be half-elf, but she fell in love with the wrong faery and got thrown out of the kingdom.  So why was she invited back?

This is Book Three in the Iron Fey series and I got my ebook copy from Net Galley and Harlequin (thank you).  The book will be published at the end of January.

If you have not read any of the earlier books in this series (or even if you have), you're in for a treat.  This is the land of fey, with Puck, magic, three warring sides and impossible love.  All Ms. Kagawa characters are strong, committed to their causes, and often have conflicts between themselves.

Meghan is summoned back to the land of the fey because she's the only one who has the mixed powers needed to defeat the false Iron King.  She's already found out she can't go home.  Home is no longer home when you've become part of the fey.  She'd bring trouble upon her family.  But her new quest might kill her, her lover and her friend.  However, she really doesn't have any choice...

The story is fast paced and a very good read.  The story didn't end how I would have liked it, but it sets up a new tale for the next book.

I highly recommend this series if you like fantasy and the fey.  I thoroughly enjoy reading Ms. Kagawa books.  Why not visit your local bookstore and get the first two in the series?  Then you'll be up to speed when Book #3 hits the shelves.  I know I'm already looking forward to Book #4, The Iron Knight.

Happy reading!
