Author : Julie Kagawa
Genre : YA-Fantasy

Publication date : From 2010 to 2012

I am a huge fantasy fan and especially a faery lover, so how could I not read this ? I mean it was a must-read. So I finally did it, I read the whole series and I loved it so much that I read all the 4 books, along with the 3 e-novellas, in 1 week !
I don't know what else to say that's not already been said, what to add more about this fantastic series. I loved absolutely everything about it, all the characters, the story, the world, the creatures, the plot...etc
I was lost in the world Kagawa created and I didn't want to leave it, it was all so beautiful that I fell in love with it from the first book. This is the best Fey story I've read and definitely one of my all-time-favorite series...no not one of them but the best of them and it will probably stay this way forever. I love a lot of book characters but I don't think I'll ever love a character like I love Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grimalkin. I loved Meghan's courage, Ash's seriousness, Puck's humour and Grimalkin's smartness. Those four will have always a very special place in my heart. So I was so sad when I was reading the fourth book because I realized that this was going to end...I didn't want it to end, I just didn't want to say goodbye...
Anyway, I heard there is a spin-off : The Iron Fey : The Call Of The Forgotten Trilogy, I usually don't like spin-offs but hell to that, I will read everything that involves this series, so I will buy the whole trilogy once the last book is out.
And also, I am officially a Julie Kagawa fan, which means, this series is not the last that I am reading of her.
Sooo...all of you fantasy lovers out there, if you haven't read this, then do it...like...now !
I highlighted so many quotes, but here are a few of my many favorites :
"Here," continued Rob in an amiable voice, "I'll go through the whole thing, so you'll know how to answer next time." He cleared his throat and pounded at the door again. "Knock, knock!" he bellowed. "Who's there? Puck! Puck who? Puck, who will turn you into a squealing pig and stuff you in the oven if you don't get out of our way!" And with that, he banged the door open.”
"I whispered, and a faint, tiny grin finally crossed his face, before his expression clouded and he lowered his head, touching his forehead to mine. "What do you want of me, Meghan?" he asked, a low thread of anguish flickering below the surface. Tears blurred my vision, all the fear and heartache of the past few days rising to the surface. "Just you," I whispered. "I just want you."
“I will always be your knight, Meghan Chase,” he whispered in a strained voice, as if every moment he remained was painful to him. “And I swear, if there is a way for us to be together, I will find it. No matter how long it takes. If I have to chase your soul to the ends of eternity, I won’t stop until I find you, I promise.”
“Forgive me,” Ash murmured, and I heard the faintest of tremors beneath his voice. “But I can’t…I won’t…give her up. Not now, when I’ve just found her.”
“Well,” Puck said cheerfully, forcing a rather pained smile, “it’s just like old times, isn’t it? You, me, ice-boy, the future of the Nevernever hanging in the balance…we just have to wait for Furball to show up and then it’ll be perfect.”
“I am yours to command, my queen,” he whispered, making my heart clench in complete, helpless love. “I will obey, even if you order me to cut out my own heart. Even if you order me to the hell that is the Winter Court Elysium.”
"His green eyes flashed with familiar defiance, and he stepped close, taking my hand. “Not on your life, princess,” he returned, smirking. “Though don’t think I don’t know what you’re doing. If we all end up as llamas, I’m going to spend the rest of my life following you around saying ‘I told you so’ in llama-ese.”"
