The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa
This is a young adult paranormal fantasy novel (PG-13)
Book Summary
The third installment to the "New York Times" Bestseller.

My name is Meghan Chase.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.
My Review
The only thing this book did was make me dislike Meghan Chase. SPOILERS
I was so annoyed when she got mad at Puck for saving her “Dad”.  Um, he would have died or worse if Puck hadn’t stepped in and she blamed him.  She asked, why didn’t you tell me.  Really???  She didn’t even know she was fey, how was he going to tell her? Instead of thanking him for saving him from sudden dead she treats him poorly. 
I don’t have to like the main characters to enjoy a story. Look at Hunger Games.  I wasn’t a Katiness fan yet it was a fantastic series.  When it works is when there are reasons why a character is unlikeable. In this case, the author doesn’t intend for us to dislike the character.  So the fact that I do, is a failing in the story.  I really don’t want to read on.  But I bought the audio book months ago for the next one and can’t return it.  So I will be reading the next one at some point. 
So overall, I’m just not happy with the series. 
Audio Review
Khristine Hvam is continued on the same course as with previous books.  Nothing more to be said.

My book boyfriend Glick.  Why because I’ve already used Puck and Ash.
