~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Iron Raven is everything I want in the continuation of The Iron Fey series. I was actually never a super big Puck fan, but I love him in this book. Plus new characters? Yes, please.

Okay so the character I love the most in this story is not Puck. Poor Puck. I do like him. I just don’t love him the way I did some other characters. Nyx, however, I love her. The Forgotten assassin who is mysterious and cool. Lol. She’s not broody though, just quiet and intelligent. You can tell she is a people watcher. I’m excited to hopefully find out more about her story and see how her character develops.

So yes Puck. I did like Puck. He’s funny and of course powerful. I really like his story arc. The way his character develops due to some unforeseen circumstances is great. He has to deal with things that might have been glossed over before. 

It’s always fun to see former characters. Although Kierran. My heart still breaks about Kierran. Meghan and Ash have a little part as well and although we are missing Ironheart, his herd is still a part of the story. Of course there is also Grimalkin.

I love the plot. I’m always a fan of adventure stories that involve a group of characters. Maybe because I’m such a rpg game player. I have no idea but I also love the depth that multiple characters bring. Puck falls into this adventure with the merry band by chance but he is in some respects sort of the leader. Not only are they journeying to fight this new evil there are a lot of Puck’s memories that come up and of course the mysteries of Nyx. It incorporates new and old seamlessly.

Another great addition to The Iron Fey series. I’m so excited for what happens next.
