The extraordinary finale to Julie Kagawa's New York Times and internationally bestselling Iron Fey series is here…and the fate of the Nevernever and all the world hangs in the balance. Join Meghan, Ash, Puck, Grimalkin, and the entire Iron Fey cast for this final epic journey into worlds where imagination knows no boundaries…

After leaping through the portal to Evenfall, Meghan and her companions find themselves in a terrifying new world where Nightmares roam and glamour is nearly nonexistent. As their magic wanes and the creatures of Evenfall rise against them, the race to find the Nightmare King grows ever more desperate. But what they discover—about Evenfall, about the Nightmare King, about themselves—will shake everything they thought they knew to the core.

The Nightmare King stirs. A world hangs in the balance. And as twilight descends upon all the realms of Faery, Meghan and her allies must make one more impossible choice.

This was the perfect ending to the trilogy and possibly the series as we once again go on an epic journey to save the NeverNever with Meghan Chase and her friends and family. As a longtime fan, I took this opportunity to reread every book to make sure I was ready for the maximum effect of the last book. That worked, but if you do not have enough time to do that, then the book does a good job of referring to past events as well.
I like the addition of Nyx and her story. She is the perfect match for the ever-rascally Robin Goodfellow and it is fun to see him finally meet his match and perfect balance. His character is the life of the story that is otherwise dark as the team travels into the long-forgotten Evenfey territory to stop the Nightmare King.
Kierran, the King of the Forgotten, is still seeking redemption for his betrayal in previous books. He was the perfect character for the role he takes in this story. I am surprised in all the books he has never been the narrator. If there is ever any more, I hope to see him take the first-person place in the story.
This book was told from Meghan’s perspective. Which did not feel different enough from Ash’s perspective in Iron Sword, and I kept having to remind myself who was the one thinking and narrating. It has been a while since Ash and Meghan were the main characters on the quest and it was a nostalgic feeling having it come back full circle to them.
Final Verdict: I liked the surprise reveal about the land of Evenfey and the dreaded Nightmare King and the resolution of this quest. This book is great for younger YA fans because the plot is easy enough to follow, there are high moral standards they stick to, and just when you think they are going to kill one of the main characters it backs off and they are saved, so it leaves you with a perfect satisfaction that your characters of Faerie are around if another book is made.
What Meghan and her group achieve feels like the ending of a series. Yet, in the end, we meet Ethan and Kenzie’s new child and so that leaves the reader with a hopeful feeling about the possibility of a future story. This series and book contain all the elements of a great love story and a faerie story. Kagawa is talented in bringing a vibrant world to life for our characters to explore and find unexplored facets of what a fey can look like.

What I liked:
Division in the NeverNever has always been a hard pill for Megan Chase; married to the ice prince Ash, she only wants a united world. So when Megan and her companions are again pulled into yet another layer of the fairy world, this time to a world of nightmares, she has one goal to save the even fey and unite her world. The Nightmares are creepy, and there is a definite layer of horror overlying the fantasy of the evenfall land. The new characters we encounter, such as the eccentric Gileas from the library, are unique as many of the other fey Kagawa has created in her fey series. The characters in this series are as dear to me as the Shannara books, as each set of books is set within a period and place and has an end goal. Still, the one for this set is bittersweet, as we never know when we will be venturing back to the never, never, if ever.
Final Verdict:
If you have an aversion to horror elements or spiders, then this final book may be a bit much for you, it is in the dark range of the series, but that is to be expected when you travel into a world full of twisted nightmare fey. The ending wraps up on a happy note that will bring you tears if you have been a fan of this series for as long as I have. You're saying goodbye to old friends, but there always be there in the NeverNever, waiting for you.
