I found this fun thing over at Pure Imagination and thought it was a perfect opportunity for me to break up with the Iron Fey series.
Why we are breaking up:
Everyone and their mother that I have seen review this series absolutely love it. So I tried, I really really tried, but I just could not get into them. I think it had a little to do with the contrived love story. Meghan and Ash hardly talk, and she is in love with him. Then the part where Puck is tried to be squeezed in as another love interest just did it in for me. I'm sick of the love triangles and the love at first sight nonsense. I want to see the relationship grow. I want to see trust being established. I want conversations where they are friends, and then the conversations where they become something more. I love character/relationship development and I WANT TO SEE IT IN THE BOOKS. I don't like this instant gratification of " Ohhh he's cute! I Love You, I'll Die For You" nonsense. It's just irritating.
The other reason for the break up is I am pretty sure that I just don't like books about Fae. I don't like all the rules and laws. I do however like how cruel they are, so that's one point for the fae :) haha.
Anyways the third book Iron Queen just recently came out and, the series is going to continue with Iron Knight, Ash's story.
Like I said, pretty much every other reviewer really enjoy this series, I seem to be the only odd man out :(
