Addiction Fiction Friday: #Giveaway #Yallfest2015 Interview with Julie Kagawa ~ Review The Iron Warrior

Welcome to Addiction Fiction Friday where we feature a book of fiction that will become your new addiction. Today I am excited to bring you The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa. I loved this book and have all the feels right now.

The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa
(The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #3)
Release Date: October 27, 2015
Publisher: Harlequin Teen; 384 pages
Rating: 5 Out of 5 Stars

The Iron Prince—my nephew—betrayed us all.

He killed me.

Then, I woke up.

Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever.

Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase.To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore.


Thank you Harlequin Teen for a copy of The Iron Warrior for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

I got to read this on my way to Yallfest and was so excited. I love the Iron Fey series and was dying to know how Julie would end the series. Well she did not disappoint. While we got a glimpse of the characters we love in the last 2 books in The Iron Warrior Julie brings everything you love all together for one epic finale.

Keirran has done the unforgivable and killed his uncle or so he thought. The real question is, is he beyond saving. Will Ethan be able to break the prophecy and save his family? Will the never never fall for good? I loved reading and devouring the pages jut to find out.

Their were intense creepy moments, moments of tears and moments of absolute joy at seeing characters remembered. I am a huge Razor fan. I want my own little Razor. He was adorable and hilarious at moments you needed that. Thank you Julie for creating such a fantastic world I will cherish forever. If you have not read this series you must and if you have and are scared for it all to end do not be. This is a must read!!!

Interview with Julie Kagawa

What was your favorite scene out of all of the iron fey to write?

If I were to choose both from the original. The first one is the very end of Iron Queen. When Meghan and Ash are under the tree and she orders him away. It was so heartbreaking and people cried. I really love that scene. Cause I love making people cry. My other favorite scene is the happily ever after. Even though I was not going to give them a happily ever after when Ash makes it back. The final pages of Iron Knight are my favorites.

And are you team Ash?

So you may ask Team Ash or Team Puck.

I am. Now that the series is over I can say I am team Ash.

Who is your favorite character to write at of all of The Iron Fey series?

Ash. Then Grimalkin is an extremely close second.

What are you working on besides you Talon series?

Right now nothing. I have 3 more books of Talon. It is a 5 book series. So after that I don't know. The future is open so I do not know what I will write.

Have you heard anything on movie news on Talon?

Not yet. They are still in negotiations. Everything is still kind of hazy. 

Will you always stay in YA or do you want to write outside the YA Genre?

Right now I would say YA. I love the Genre. I love the age group. I just love it. I love my teens and I love my not teens. I did write an adult Novella the pre-quel to Immortal Rules. It is an adult Novella and it was in the anthology Til the World Ends and I really struggled with it. I since decided I love writing for teens because of my maturity level so for now I am sticking with YA. 

What was your favorite read this year?

I do not get a lot of time to read now sadly. I did read An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and it was awesome. I really enjoyed that.

What is the coolest thing a fan has ever done for you?

Oh my goodness. So many I get drawings and people show up in costumes. They give me so many gifts. It is very cool. It is amazing. I do not think I could pin it down to a favorite, favorite. I love my fans. My fans are the best fans in the whole world. 

Thank you so much Julie for taking the time out of your very busy schedule to sit down and chat with me and answer my questions.

About the Author

Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time (okay, at least the illustrations did), but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a
real job.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, an obnoxious cat, an Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and a hyper-active Papillion.
