Bestselling Vampire Academy author Richelle Mead's new novel in the darkly compelling 'Dark Swan' urban fantasy series, featuring shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham...

From the Back Cover

An embattled realm mystically entwined with our own, the Otherworld is at the mercy of one woman...

Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land's queen, she's fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful fear...

But who can she trust to help her? Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her. To control the Crown's all-consuming powers, Eugenie must confront an unimaginable temptation - that puts her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal danger...

Format: Paperback
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 triangle and starting to wonder just how many times Eugenie will jump back and forth between Dorian and Kiyo. Dorian behaves badly in Iron Crowned and while I don't blame her for being angry I didn't like the fact that she goes running straight back to Kiyo before even talking to him to get his side of the story. I've gone from really loving Kiyo in the first book to completely despising him now, his actions in Iron Crowned made me want to punch him! I don't think Dorian is much better though so at the moment I'm not routing for either one of them. I'd rather see Eugenie on her own and learning to become a decent queen.

I am curious to see if Eugenie can redeem herself in the next installment though and although I saw the twist at the end coming it should make things interesting as the series progresses. Unfortunately this wasn't my favourite book in the series but I'm hoping things will improve again from here onwards.

I've been waiting for this having enjoyed the first two books in the series - but the sex scenes have gone from teasingly erotic to so blatant and so "in your face" that they almost ut the reader off :o( Sometimes less is more!! The quest for the iron crown i thought would take longer - its the crux of the title and yet over in a few pages, and Eugenie and the duo of Kiyo and Dorian is begining to get VERY irritating - she really needs to make up her mind as she's begining to come across as an unpleasant user of people rather than the nice person she started out. What i do like is the way that she doesn't always have options and yet is unsettled by the route she has to choose and the way that the power is begining to take precendence for her - but i really hope she can overcome this, she needs to stay the freindly grounded person she started with a heart wanting to make the right choices for everyone and not just herself. There's some ground for her to recover in the next book but its been a good read through the series so far with just a bit of a let down in this book where the story never quite seems to come together properly. I hope it all pulls together with the next one :o) and the love trinagle gets sorted.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is the third installment in Richelle Meade's Dark Swan series. The story starts a few weeks after the 2nd book Thorn Queen left off.

This book is my favorite of the series so far. Eugenie continues her shaman work in Tucson while still living part time in the Otherworld as the Thorn Queen. In order to end a war that was begun by Leith's mother after he was killed for kidnapping and raping Eugenie, she goes on the quest for the Iron Crown. The love triangle between Eugenie, Dorian and Kiyo is still going strong, and I liked that there is more interaction between Eugenie and her sister.

The cliff hanger ending has me anxiously waiting for the next in the series to come out.

Format: Paperback
Having herd Richelle Mead highly praised for her `Vampire Academy' novels, I was thus intrigued to discover her work and delve into a paranormal Young Adult creation. Cleverly combining dry humor and wit, with a cast of colorful characters amid deliciously dark worlds here is something truly phenomenal and a cracking read. Sharp prose and meaningful narrative beautifully blend urban fantasy with a fresh `twist' that is simply stunning, and which professes the author's uniquely identifiable flair for this genre. Combining exquisite historical ambience which surrounds an enchanting romance, within a mystical world I was totally captivated by this wonderfully wicked creation of sheer enlightenment! As an avid reader of the Young Adult genre (YA Romance), fantasy and historical fiction I just adored how each element was entwined to form a deeply complex, interwoven saga.

Take an attractive, sassy immortal character and place them in an unusually tangible, believable story and you have a concoction for a gripping page-turner and the foundations of an exciting adventure...Lost within an otherworld and an embattled realm mystically entwined with our own, all sense of time is forgotten as darkness and magic take hold. Shaman-for-hire, Eugene Markham's task is simply to banish those Earthreal beings who try to trespass into the mortal realm. As Thorn Land's Queen she is in the midst of a great war that threatens to destroy her Kingdom, and so seeks out a powerful entity to aid her. With the aid of Kiyo (her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend) and Fairy King Dorian, to control the Crown's all-consuming potent powers Eugene has to confront unimaginable temptations...one that puts her own soul in the firing line alongside the fate of both worlds.
