    1. *Deep breaths Helen, don't throw your Kindle at the wall, don't kill the next person to approach you*SPOILERS! If you saw my review of Thorn Queen you might remember that I hate Kiyo with a fiery passion. Well, that was then. I still hate him; my passion, however, has been somewhat redirected because now I hate everyone.Kiyo: same reasons as before, except now add that he's a homicidal thundercunt willing to force the mother of his children into an abortion. Eugenie: she is a narrow-minded, unfa [...]


    2. *2.75 Stars*There is a recurring theme in all of Meads books that is starting to make me wonder about her personal life. Could this be wish fulfillment? Or perhaps something that happened to her in her past? For her sake I hope not. I'm getting the feeling that Mead wants us to hate all her main characters. She has them make idiotic decisions, betray the ones who love them, and do the one thing they should have done in the first place when it's almost too late. They ignore useful advice and inst [...]


    3. Ugh. Where to begin. I'm not a great reviewer, I don't usually give a synopsis of the story, or break down the book in a nice, rational way. And I don't always leave reviews for books. Often, I feel my star rating says enough. My reviews are usually just based on how the book made me feel. So I tend to leave more reviews for books I loved, and books I greatly disliked. This one falls into the latter. Ugh. Where to begin? Most anything I rant about will be spoilers, but suffice it to say I am com [...]


    4. *** 3.44 ***A buddy read with the Wednesday Urban Fantasy Fanatics at BB&B! This was a very well written, but very frustrating book in the series I am getting a bit tired of the love triangle and am frustrated because I neither like nor trust either one of them and I wish Richelle Mead would offer us and Eug a third, worthy choice. I know plenty of people feel Dorian is too good for her, but I think he is all about his agenda and power-hunger, with a tendency for megalomania and is maybe att [...]


    5. And This is Why I Hate MOST Love Triangles. I get it the suspense of who will win the girl is a good tension builder but I’m of the opinion that once the heroine has slept with and gone back and forth between the two possible choices multiple times now I’m just don’t care anymore. Mostly I’m irritated with how much of the story that portion is taking up.Eugenie…Eugenie…Eugenie….what are you thinking. Okay so is isn’t just the love triangle that I’m having a few issues with it i [...]


    6. This should be re-titled The Dumb Queen series.OK I finished it - yes, it was a quick read & I felt compelled to blow through it but wow.WOW. Was it me or did Eugenie come across as fickle as a 70's housewife at a swinger party?If you've read Mead's other series & see her character formula, I felt like this was if you took Rose & Georgie both & they had a love child - Eugenie would be the result but all of the bad & none of the good.I had so many problems with this book & [...]


    7. Based on reading Storm Born and Thorn Queen, I begged Richelle Mead not to let Eugenie end up with Kiyo. Now after reading Iron Crowned…wow!! I’ve despised Kiyo from the beginning and always thought him to be even worse than Dorian! I still do. At least Dorian doesn’t pretend to be something he’s not. At least Dorian’s actions are not meant to cause Eugenie harm, and at least they’re not tied to his loyalty for another woman!! Everything Kiyo has done or said from the beginning has d [...]


    8. After reading this I have to say that Richelle Mead made the right decision when she decided to write Bloodlines and bring her adult-targeted series to an end. With only one book remaining in both this and her Succubus series, most of us will stick with them to the bitter end, if only for no other reason than to find out what happens. But, after that, I really don't see many in the adult crowd picking one of her books again. I hope her fangirls represent a good market.A couple of years ago, when [...]



    9. Antibotics? Ok come on, whatever.Really, seriously, Kiyo again? Whatever.Dorian, you lying hunk of badass royalty. Whatever.Hated the book.Love the series.


    10. Not what I expected - 2.5 stars Most of my reading time with this book was spent being annoyed at the main characters. There were even a few instances of me wanting to fling the book across the room. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not a bad book. It just drove me crazy.Words can not express my frustration and hatred for one of the main characters. Here’s a hint: he is the despised furry one – Kiyo. Why, Eugenie, Why? After the end of the last book, there would have been no way that I would [...]


    11. Fantastic!!!! This was so worth the wait. Mead does not disappoint!!! I'm reeling over this book, it might take me a while to get to sleep, so I thought I'd put a few random thought on here. *********SPOILERS FOR PREVIOUS BOOKS********First of allI LOVE Dorian!!(xoxoxo)Second.Kiyo SUCKS!!!!This book continues pretty much where THORN QUEEN left off. Eugenie and Dorian have teamed up in a war waged in the Otherworld by the Rowan Queen, after her son Leith was killed by Dorian for the kidnap and re [...]


    12. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and chat with Richelle Mead (and Carrie Jones, both are such sweethearts!) so you can imagine how excited I was to read Iron-Crowned. First things first, I hate UF narrative. I usually find it too simple with too much inner dialogue. But Mead is the only UF author so far that doesn’t bore me. There’s this ease to which she writes and her plotting is beyond anything I could ever come up with. This book blew my mind!But it didn’t start out that way. It’s be [...]


    13. This might have been a little more than a 3 star book, but Eugenie is such an obtuse character that I had to issue a demerit.The war sparked by events of the last book rages on in Iron Crowned. It makes for an interesting backdrop - or rather, it would have if Mead had given a glimpse of the various battles as opposed to mere tactical updates. Instead, Iron Crowned is more about Eugenie’s relationships and her ineffectual decision-making. Am I supposed to cheer Eugenie on? Think her fabulous? [...]


    14. I enjoyed the storyline in this one, but I just felt like, after reading so many of Richelle Mead's VA and Bloodlines books, that this series is less polished in its execution.The whole ghost/murder mystery background story felt unnecessary, a lot of things felt repetitive (oh, look, I am spending more time in the Otherworld now over and over and over)And the back and forth between Dorian and Kiyo is giving me whiplash. He's bad, I want that one. No, wait, that one is bad, I want this one. Oh, n [...]



    15. This book deserves more than 5 stars!!! The words that came to mind while I was reading were: OMG!!, OMFG!! WOW!! I absolutely L.O.V.E.D. this book.All I should write in order for you to believe the depth of excellency of this book should be to point out and that IT IS a Richelle Mead book. Not only a Richele Mead book, but a 3rd book in the series book. If you've read at least one of her 3 series you know that she has this thing that on the 3rd book she pulls the carpet under your feet, shreddi [...]


    16. Eugenie Markham is quite the kick-butt heroine! She is queen of the Thorn Land, half-human, half-fae and she is in the middle of a huge war with The Rowan Land. This book starts off with a great start. ***Please note if you have not read the previous two books of the series I suggest doing so before reading further to avoid past spoilers.***Working with her current lover, King Dorian, along with her advisors Shaya and Rurik, Eugenie is trying to manage the war with minimal damage. And she still [...]


    17. Kiyo needs to goI don't know why Eugenie can't see how wonderful Dorian is? This is a two star book; only getting an extra star for the final two chapters. There wasn't a good flow to the plot. Eugenie spent awkward scenes in transition to this world and the nextch as the whole dating kiyo again - "We fell into our old routine of TV and sex; or something". She wasn't even doing any banishing really; and the PI never really came into play. That made for a dull filler waiting for the (view spoiler [...]


    18. EDIT (11/4/2017): Grr! No way! Kill Kiyo! Kill him! I'll start a petition: Kill Kiyo!I love Richelle Mead. I love her stories. Unfortunately, Eugenie is killing me! I would love to give 5* to this book. But I cannot because of her. I love Dorian more and more with every book. She does not deserve him. And why is she still surprise that he has his own agenda? (view spoiler)[ Come on! Is the crown just a trinket? How could she believe it? I did not think that she was really stupid. Other than liki [...]


    19. Originally posted at WickedLilPixie ReviewsIron Crowned is the much anticipated third book in Richelle Mead’s Dark Swan series. The series follows Eugenie Markham, newly made Queen of the Thorn Land and daughter to the epically feared Storm King. She must maintain her responsibilities in the Otherworld as Queen while also paying her bills and keeping her house as a part-time shaman in the real world. War is raging between her land and the land of Rowan. Her only hope of winning this War and mi [...]


    20. Honestly, I want to CRY that I wasted a whole days reading on this blip in Richelle Meads Dark Swan road. Really, I would LOVE nothing more then to post all the spoilers for all to see and save you from the trauma of this disaster of a book. BUT I WON"TI ADORE Richelle Mead, but we are all human. THis book will have to be chalked up to her one tragic mistake(view spoiler)[Storm Born~She starts out with Kiyo until she finds out he has another chick knocked up. BYE BYE KIYOStorm Born~Dorian tricks [...]


    21. 3.5 stars. This had a few surprises in it and was also quite irritating. I thought that I was annoyed with the author and the book but I'm annoyed with the characters, which should mean the author has done a good job.d maybe it does- I can't decide. I have no choice but to finish the last one in the series with the BB&B brigade to discover how it all ends.


    22. What were my thoughts on this book?HmmmmLet me think for a secondOkay! Back to my thoughts!It was a remarkable,suspenseful ongoing joy ride read for me! I literally, no LIES,jumped in my seat with anticipation from beginning till end,along with hundreds of profanity words that I just could not help expressing while reading. So what's my point? Here goes,I don't normally get all riled up and crazed about a book; but for some bizarre reason all of Richelle Mead's series tend to make me Angry,Happy [...]


    23. I really enjoyed the first two installments of the Dark Swan series but I found myself getting really frustrated as I was reading Iron Crowned. Eugenie makes some seriously bad decisions and there were times I was about ready to strangle her! I'm getting really annoyed that she refuses to accept her role as queen of the Thorn Land, her people are suffering because she won't step up to her responsibilities and it's about time she grew up and did the right thing.I've also had enough of the love tr [...]


    24. I wanted to like Iron Crowned more than I did, but it left me with mixed feelings overall.  The storyline from the previous books progressed a respectable amount, but there wasn't as much in character development.It was nice to see a little more from Eugenie interacting with Jasmine, but other than that, we didn't see much more character/relationship development. There was one relationship that I won't go into so I don't spoil it-it has no great bearing on anything else in the book.The other re [...]


    25. This is the continuation of the journey of Eugenie Markham, the Thorn Queen of the Otherworld and a shaman-for-hire in the human world. When we last saw Eugenie, she was proudly wearing a new crown to legitimize her standing as the Thorn Queen. As this book opens, she is practically living with the Oak King, my beloved Dorian, and waging a war with Dorian against the Rowan Queen, Katrice (can't even remember if this is her name, but it's close). This war was set into action by the behavior of th [...]


    26. Spoilers-I did find this entertaining, I was hooked from the beginning until the end but I couldn't rate this higher because I hated the heroine with a burning passion — not because she turned out to be a cheater, not because she was dumb but because she let people treat her rubbish - Kiyo, Roland, her mum, that freeloader Tim and everyone in between.-I hated Eugenie's mum and stepdad, Roland - they were hideous and vile. Seriously, Eugenie has the worst parents ever — what kind of father wo [...]


    27. Eugenie is learning firsthand the consequences of war. Her compassionate side does not allow the losses of her people to sit well with her, so's she is desperate to find a way to end the war without more bloodshed. When she hears about the legendary Iron Crown she is skeptical, yet very eager for its possibilities. Due to the high concentration of Iron, she cannot rely on her lover, King Dorian for help. So, she must turn to her ex for help, making it a very strained journey. She will have to ma [...]


    28. It's not a cliff hanger, it's a sloppy non-ending that just stops. The book could have been about 2/3 shorter than it was with the existing content, and the difference tacked onto the end with more substantive content. The first 1/3 to 1/2 of the book was practically without merit. Very little occurred to warrant the words. The second half of the book had more action, but watching Eugenie go through it was agony. She is such a blithering, insufferable, idiot who actually gets more stupid as her [...]
