The Iron Warrior loved up to all of my expectations. It was a fast paced, adventurous reads that won’t leave fans of the Iron Fey series disappointed. Once again Julie Kagawa completely drew me into this world of fear rivalries, and I have to say that I’ll be incredibly sad to leave it.

If You Find Me is a heart-breaking, beautiful debut by Emily Murdoch.

Nonetheless, it was a wonderful read, and definitely worth the hype it has received.
