Kathryn Le Veque

1410 A.D. - Battle-hardened warrior and favored of the king, Sir Lucien de Russe is called the Iron Knight because of his indestructibility in battle. An older knight, Lucien is entering his fortieth year and has seen a good deal in his lifetime. But having sustained fairly serious wounds in the most recent rebellions against Henry IV, Lucien retires his sword and spurs, choosing to live out the rest of his life in peace. Physically, he is damaged goods and must heal. Mentally, however, he is already dead. Having lost his wife many years ago, Lucien has two children - a son who barely acknowledges him and a daughter who refuses to leave him. Lucien finds no joy in life any longer, looking back upon an illustrious career, admired and loved by the fighting men of England, yet inside, he is hollow. It is this existence he has resigned himself to when the king, believing he is doing Lucien a great favor, pledges him to a very young heiress. When the petty, spoiled girl and her pompous father show up at Lucien's home, he makes an escape. Riding south to clear his head, Lucien runs right into a robbery in progress. A fine carriage has been set upon by bandits and Lucien knows he cannot turn away. Begrudgingly, the Iron Knight goes into action once more and saves the occupants of the carriage, a mother and her young daughter. Lady Sophina de Gournay is a widow, returning home after a visit with her father. When the big, handsome knight with the long, dark hair saves her from the outlaws, a simple moment of gratitude turns into something that binds her to Lucien far more than either of them realize. It's that brief and beautiful moment in time, that wonderful chance meeting, that sets off a chain of events that could destroy them both. Join Lucien and Sophina in a romance of a lifetime, where second chances at love are something worth fighting for.

My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn'darkmyr Tallyn. I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her. My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl… To cold faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought. Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl—smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive. With the unwelcome company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end—a quest to find a way to honor his vow to stand by Meghan's side. To survive in the Iron Realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. And along the way Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice. Don't miss the first book in Julie Kagawa's highly anticipated new series, TALON, AVAILABLE OCTOBER 28, 2014

Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty all for a girl. And all for nothing...unless he can earn a soul. To the cold, emotionless faery prince, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought... Then Meghan Chase half human, half fey smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. But Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive. With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a quest to find a way to honour his solemn vow to stand by Meghan's side. Then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

The author has written this novel with a sentimental feeling about the land of his ancestors, the Maltese people. A people who have shown remarkable courage and faith on many occasions in the history of the Mediterranean. The story of this book tells of their courage during the Great Siege of 1565, just as Voltaire said, “No siege is better known than that of the Great Siege of Malta.” The five-century-old religious fight between Christians and Muslims, known as the battle between the Cross and the Koran, drifted to the shores of Malta where the Order of St. John of Jerusalem had their headquarters. It produced many heroes and tyrants, several of these are the subject of our novel. The great Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, unchallenged emperor of the Great Ottoman Empire, tries to impose Islam over Christian Europe. During five centuries, the Christian Crusaders were slowly expelled from the Holy Land, and now the great Sultan drives out the Order of St. John of Jerusalem from their last stronghold, the fortress in the island of Rhodes. Then the battle shifts to the brave Island of Malta where its people play an important role in helping La Valette and the Order fight the Turks. Jean De La Valette, commander of the Order’s Christian navy, knight-adventurer, and defender of the faith, engages famous Muslim pirates, like Barbarossa and Dragut Reis, and harasses on the huge Turkish navy. He seeks to recover the Holy Cross taken by the Saracens. The secret of a forbidden romance in the paradise island of Rhodes haunts this warrior monk of eighty-four battles—a unique man enslaved by the Saracens and then escapes. He is later elevated to the position of grand master of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem and Rhodes. He was considered by his peers to be “the man for the moment” restoring the order to its former glory. One man, Jean De La Valette, the greatest of the grand masters, “the rarest of human beings,” defeats the Sultan’s Ottoman army in the Great Siege of Malta in 1565. La Valette became known as the Scourge of Africa and Asia, the Shield of Europe, fearless and indomitable, by his Holy Arms. With only seven hundred Knights and several thousand Spanish, Italian, Portuguese soldiers and fifteen thousand Maltese civilians (men, women, and children alike), he repels the great Turkish army of over forty thousand troops. A great historical novel of a great man and a valiant and victorious people, the people of Malta.

Para Ash, el gélido príncipe de Invierno, el amor era una flaqueza propia de humanos y de necios. O eso pensaba hasta que Meghan Chase echó abajo todas sus barreras y Ash juró ser su caballero, ligándose así a ella de manera irrevocable. Cuando el País de las Hadas estuvo a punto de caer bajo el dominio de los duendes de Hierro, Meghan segó limpiamente ese lazo para salvar la vida del príncipe. Se había convertido en la Reina de Hierro, en la gobernante de un país en el que ningún duende de Verano o de Invierno podía sobrevivir. Ash se embarcó entonces en un viaje en busca de la única forma de cumplir su juramento y regresar junto a Meghan. Para sobrevivir en el Reino de Hierro, debía poseer un alma y un cuerpo mortales. Pero para conseguirlos tuvo que afrontar pruebas insalvables y descubrió, de paso, algo que lo cambiaba todo, una verdad que puso a prueba sus creencias más íntimas y le demostró que, a veces, es preciso algo más que valor para hacer el último y definitivo sacrificio. “Mi nombre, mi Verdadero Nombre, es Ashallayn’darkmyr Tallyn, y soy el último hijo vivo de la reina Mab, soberana de la Corte Tenebrosa. Para ella, sin embargo, estoy muerto. Mi caída comenzó, como tantas historias, con una chica...” “La serie de Julie Kagawa es el próximo Crepúsculo”. Teen.com “The Iron King es de lectura obligada”. Gena Showalter “The Iron King posee el embrujo, la imaginación y la aventura de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, Narnia y El Señor de los Anillos, pero con romance a montones”. Revista Justine “El príncipe de Invierno es la parte más cautivadora de esta novela. La tensión entre Ash y Puck no decae en ningún momento, pero es la lealtad inquebrantable que Ash demuestra hacia Meghan lo que verdaderamente derrite el corazón”. Teenreadstoo.com, sobre The Iron Queen “Las fans de Melissa Marr (y de Kagawa) disfrutarán de una travesía en la que el carisma y el vigor cada vez mayores de Meghan demuestran la madurez de la saga. Por fin algo más que un simple triángulo amoroso”. Kirkus Review sobre The Iron Queen
