Along with them is Collin, a boy her mother had taken care of since he's mother had died. This trio has conned their way into the el…

Hello Everyone!!

I just wanted to share some exciting news for all of you Iron Fey fans by Julie Kagawa! You may or may not have noticed this but the synopsis for the last book in the series is finally out! You'll find it below!

Now for those of you who've read the previous books-you understand my agitation...Kagawa wrote the first two books-everything's okay except for the EPIC CLIFFHANGER! So then she writes her Blood of Eden series-3 books. After that she writes Talon and i think is currently working on Rogue. So that makes 5 books from that epic cliffhanger to this long awaited book!!!

Goodreads Summary

RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 17 2015
SOURCE: ARC GIVEAWAY
RATING:5 STARS!!!

Goodreads Summary

She survived a trial year at the Academy, but that was just the easy part…

Now sixteen-year-old Ryiah is an apprentice in Combat, her school’s most notorious faction of magic. When she finishes she will be a mage, but in order to do so she has to survive four years with a training master she hates and her old nemesis, Priscilla. To make matters worse the unwanted attraction Ry feels for her sometimes-friend-sometimes-rival Prince Darren is at an all time high –even though he is betrothed to the very girl she can’t stand.

Really, the only bright spot to Ryiah’s new life is the time she spends with her friends, including an older apprentice named Ian, who she finds herself thinking about quite often.

Just when things start to get comfortable they take a turn for the worse. An apprentice is killed in a rebel attack and several mages end up d…

MY REVIEW

Kim Cormack has done it again with this thrilling novel! I can honestly say i loved this book more than the first one!

Book 1 was so emotionally gripping i almost bawled but book 2 did not disappoint! Kayn is now eighteen and a member of clan Ankh. But she struggles with her newly found duties. Along with that, she is mourning the loss of her love, Kevin, to clan Triad. She's in constant battle with herself-should she let her best friend and love go or should she cling to his memory in hope that one day all would be well? Kevin had his memory wiped when he joined Triad and all his dreams seem to be of this mysterious blonde girl, but who is she? Why can't he remember?

This book felt like a book on self-discovery. Kayn really grows in this one and i kept remembering her form the last boo…
