Iron Traitor Blog Tour & Giveaway

Oct. 29 is just around the corner and if I know you Iron Fey fans, you're chomping at the bit to get your hands on Iron Traitor. Well, before you get too micro-focused let's harken back to another story in the series. You remember this one, right?

Let me jog your memory. 
It centers on these two post-wedded bliss...

 .... and takes place before this guy is born.

The oracle shows up at Meghan and Ash's first Elysium together with a prophecy that goes a little something like this...
"What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.”
The story provides some pretty heavy foreshadowing about the future and you just knew there had to be more. I mean, with Julie Kagawa at the helm did you really expect to end on a traditional "happy ever after?" I didn't think so. Everyone loves a little mayhem and the author of the Iron Fey certainly supplies it.

But back to the point of our little walk down memory lane...

A little birdie told me that that the prophecy at the the center of Iron's Prophecy comes to fruition in Iron Traitor. Frankly, I'm not sure whether to be anxious or terrified at the prospects. Either way I'm thrilled that the reveal has finally come! (Notice I don't call it closure or anything of the sort because I'm confident in Kagawa's ability to throw in a heart-wrenching twist and milk me for every last tear. Tears keep her young, you know.)

So if you haven't already pulled a reread of the entire series, definitely go back and reread Iron's Prophecy and ponder the possibilities. Will worlds be brought together or torn apart? Is Kierran to blame? How will it all play out? I won't dare to hazard a guess.

What do you think will happen?

Iron Traitor 
by Julie Kagawa 

Release Date: Oct. 29, 2013 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen 

In the real world, when you vanish into thin air for a week, people tend to notice.

After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as "normal" as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he's forbidden to see her again.

But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, "normal" simply isn't to be. For Ethan's nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan's and Keirran's fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan's next choice may decide the fate of them all.

Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all-time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian shepherd who is too smart for his own good and the latest addition, a hyperactive Papillon puppy.
So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish and the odd eel.
