"Ironside" by Holly Black [3 1/2]

A rash declaration, an impossible quest.
Kaye is forced to find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie. Miserable and convinced that she belongs nowhere, Kaye is propelled back to the dangerous world of faerie. Once again, she finds herself caught up in the rivalries of the Seelie Court. In this twisted game of wits and power, can a pixie outplay a queen?

OK so this is my next read for the four month challenge and it came under the heading of a 'one word title.'

Ironside is the final installment to the Tithe series and thankfully Holly Black has finished it off, sometimes the authors tend to drag out their series a little too long.

While I have maintain that another faerie series has been my favourite, I did enjoy this final book. I think everything has been wrapped up well and the conclusion will satisfy everyone who reads it.

It has been two months since Kaye first found out who she really was and what else existed in the world, now she is about to go to the coronation of her boyfriend Roiben who defeated the old Queen of the night court. But as usual things are not quite that easy and as they are about to discover, War has been declared by the Queen of the Seelie Court. Kaye doubts who she is and if Roiben even loves her and somehow she manages to get tangle in a quest that seems impossible to solve. With her friend Corney by her side they set out to discover what they can do to help Roiben end the war, along the way they meet up with Luis who has a gift with the sight. {we met him from the second book}

All the lose ends will be tied up and things turn out how they are meant too in the end. Well written, plot will keep you interested and it's good to have a finish. As I've said before this is a series for young adults as it has bad language in it and adult concepts.

I rate this book 3 1/2 stars.

I agree with legs ... The story line is very adult themed and not really suitable for Young Teens ... A different take on the Faires ... But lovin the covers :) xx
