The Iron Knight By Julie Kagawa

Ok, I am going to start out by saying that I love this series!!    This book is completely from Ash's point of view and at first it was a little hard for me to change from Meghan to Ash but once I did the story was wonderful.

The story starts out with Ash and Puck in Nevernever trying to find the cat.  Ash in on a quest to find a way to stay with Meghan in the Iron Court. The one way that he can do that is by gaining a human soul. With Grimalkin as their guide they head through the Faery wilderness the catch a ride with the river of dreams, through the Brier that surrounds Faery and to the Testing Grounds at the end of the world. 

I really liked the relationship between Ash and Puck.  In this story they are the main focus and their back story is told in a lot more detail.  I always saw them as best friends and the whole "I'll kill you first" thing never felt real to me so I loved this book where they really had to rely on each other and boost each other's strengths. 

There are other faery creatures that are introduced and we get a more detailed story on how the creatures of Faery are strengthened, how they influence the mortal world and what happens when people stop believing in them.  I like that even though this is a final book there was a lot of detail put into the world to make it even better.  One of the characters that we meet is The Big Bad Wolf.  I loved him!  He was so sarcastic and egotistical and he just made for a great/funny story. 
I would definitely encourage those who like Faery tales to read this series.  There is romance and a lot of action.  I feel like all of my loose ends have been fixed and I will be owning this series for re-reads for years to come.
