Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Goodreads Description

My Review:
OMG! I don't care how silly I might sound but - I FREAKEN LOVE THIS SERIES!!! Like seriously, if someone told me I would have to give up chocolate, music and puppies for a whole year in order to get my hands on the final book, I would not have a problem with that!

Have you read The Iron King? No? What is your problem?
Kidding! (sort of :)

It's so hard to say much about The Iron Daughter without giving anything away but I can say - if you read the Iron King, you need to read this next one. So much more of the story is told and Oh my! The ending? I still don't know what to make of it. I don't know if I hate it or if I love it or if I need to read it again to make sure I really did read what I think I read....

It was pretty much amazing, and I'm really not exaggerating. The world that Julie has created is both magical and very real. I felt a connection to every character - so much so that it was almost painful at times - in a good way, mind you.

I can't wait to buy my own copy of this one when it comes out in August. This series is defiantly one I can see myself reading over again - and not many books fall into that category for me.

I would recommend this series to urban fantasy lovers who also like adventure and romance. I had a hard time putting this one down (or in this case, shutting off my computer!).

Thank you Julie!

  1. Wow, sounds like I have to start this series! Fantasy isn't my usual genre, but I have to make an exception for this.

  2. I think everyone is loving it, even I did and I am not a huge fan of YA. Fav character is Puck by a longshot though :)

  3. I love how your enthusiasm practically leaps off the computer screen! (I can understand giving up chocolate and music but....puppies?! THAT'S INTENSE.)

  4. I'm reading this one now. It's awesome.<3 the Fey
