"My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn’darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…."
To cold 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 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. And along the way, Ash learns something that changes everything: a truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.
BONUS AUDIO: An interview with author Julie Kagawa and one of the narrators of the Iron Fey series, Khristine Hvam.

Of all audiobooks? I'm not sure. In the series? I thought it was one of the best books in the Iron Fey series, and that surprised me. I'm always a little put out when the point-of-view is suddenly changed, mid-series, but I found myself loving Ash a lot more after finishing this book.
Ash getting caught in the middle of a jealous showdown when an unexpected visitor shows up in Meghan's dream.
Not. Khristine. Hvam.
MacLeod Andrews has a great voice and does a great job narrating. His characterizations are very well done, but he doesn't quite get Ash's voice. I kind of felt like Ash was being voiced as a tough, New York thug...but an emo thug. I found it a bit odd. I thought he might have gone a little over the top when expressing Ash's despair and longing. I would gladly listen to another book narrated by him, however. He has a great voice.
No extreme reaction, but I was sad to see Meghan's and Ash's story come to a close (so Iron Prophecy was a nice bonus).
I wasn't sure how much I'd like a full-length Iron Fey book that's missing Meghan for most of the book, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Super exciting 4th adventure!
Iron Knight is in the top 20 of all fantasy/sci-fi books in my library. It is the fourth book in the series which tends to be boring and overdone by that time. This one is very different because it comes from a different perspective. There is much feeling and growth in the characters and you are cheering for how they come together as friends. I am actually on my second listen and it is better the second time. The voice performance is good, but it is a little difficult at first to get used to because the voices have all been done by a female(who did a great job) in the previous three books. I love it and I know I will listen to it again. If you love the Twilight Series, I think this one is just as good and maybe a little better.
I would compare it to Harry Potter in the 6th and 7th novels, with a mix of "The Mummy" and "Indiana Jones." It is also a love story and I'm not sure what to compare it to, but it was a very good love story, not too mushy but the end made me teary and that doesn't happen very often. It is also very funny.
None that I know of.
Yes, I could not stop listening to it. In fact, I am exhausted from staying up late trying to finish it (for the second time).
The whole series is fantastic. I love it. I'm so happy I own it and know that I can listen to it whenever I want. I know I will want to listen to it again.
