Join Meghan, Ash, Puck, Grimalkin, and the entire Iron Fey cast for this final epic journey into worlds where imagination knows no boundaries…– GoodReads
Before we start, if you’re curious, here’s my review for The Iron Raven & The Iron Sword:
Onto The Iron Vow!
Once again we’re thrown back into the magnificent world of Faery that Kagawa has built. She’s brilliant and I love her and we even get to see a whole new part of faery.
This book picks up where we left off in The Iron Sword just as book two picked up where one left off.
First book was Puck’s perspective, the second was Ash’s so we end the Evenfall books with Meghan’s perspective which is fitting.
The doomsday threat is now being faced. They jumped through a portal to Evenfall and we finally get to see it and whoa, it is as nightmare-ish as could be expected.
Once again I wish there would have been a book from Nyx’s perspective since this is her home world and it is entirely different than when she’d left it. Evenfall has no glamour, not in ways they expect and it has clearly been clinging on to life by whatever threads they could grab. But it’s something more than that…. And when you find out, it’s the sort of twist you come to expect from Kagawa and still never see coming.
**I’m keeping this note from my other review of book 2 because it still applies** Because there is so much going on, the pacing is fast and the action keeps you flying through the pages. This did have the same small issue for me as the last one. There is no denying that Kagawa is AMAZING at writing battle scenes (and we know she knows how to rip our hearts out), I just wish the depth of say her ‘Shadow of the Fox’ trilogy. These always feel a bit shallow compared to her other writings but they’re still incredibly fun and fast to read. Her writing style is so flowy and wonderful that really this complaint is something that might just be more of the fact that it’s for a younger audience than Shadow of the Fox and really it’s more of a ‘me’ problem than a book problem in that case.** I will say that this had a better flow than books two and three to me**
The ending and the following epilogue were absolutely perfect for the Evenfall books and I’m soooo happy I had a chance to read the eARC of all three.
3.5/5 Cups of coffee from me, thank you so much to HQ and NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for my honest review!
