Filled with myths and faery lore, romance and unfathomable dangers, The Iron Raven is book one of a new epic fantasy trilogy set in the world of The Iron Fey.
I hadn’t read the Iron Fey books (something I’m correcting now) but I do of course know Robin Goodfellow aka Puck, from his most famous appearance in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
This was a really fun new fantasy book from the excellent Julie Kagawa, a writer whose Japanese inspired series Shadow of the Fox was a real treat.
I love fairy tales, folklore and old stories given new skins and this ticked lots of boxes for me – and I was really pleased to be reading it. I am already desperate for the next book.
