Ironside: A Modern Faery's Tale



Ironside: A Modern Faery's Tale by Holly Black revolves around Kaye's latest adventures as she attempts to fufill an impossible mission: to find a fairy that lies. 

Ironside is much better than Tithe or Valiant -the writing was smoother, the plot was far more engaging and the characters were intriguing. The story didn't focus so much on the boring relationship between Kaye and Roiben which is basically just another varient of the Beauty and the Beast type love story -a storyline which Black has used twice in this series. It was good to see some character developement and a cameo from Luis. However unfortunately it's not worth the effort of struggling through the first two books before something interesting happens.
