After seeing an agent on twitter say she wouldn't represent someone who didn't like one of her clients' books, I had intended to do a book review only in the rare (read non-existing) event that I found a book I thought absolutely perfect. Honestly, I've never found a perfect book.
I picked up The Iron Queen expecting it to be pretty close, because well, I thought the other two were. I picked up an inconsistency about half way through the book and I still REALLY liked it--like it's my favorite in the series. But I wasn't planning to review it because to give an honest review I'd have to point out that there is an inconsistency.
Then by the end of the book I absolutely loved it again (though I still believe there is an inconsistency). I decided that I loved it too much not to blog it. The romance really picks up in this book, but the ending is so so sad. I'm really hoping the Iron Knightis a happy ending.
If you're interested I did a two part interview w/ Julie Kagawa last year that you can read here.
