Julie Kagawa – Iron Fey Series Reading Order

by Maryse on January 6, 2011 · 66 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

As per the author’s website:

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Ok i’m in 6th and i love reading books and one day i was in barnes and noble lookin for books in the teen section when i go to my mom “i can’t find a good book” so out of knowhere she picks ” Iron King ” off the the self, reads over the back, and hands it to me ” here read the back of this” and i do and it sounds good but i was wrong, that book was so fantasticly good. all of that happened back in june and then i read winters passage on my moms kindle after that i had to wait in suspence for iron daughter. when i read that i didnt know if there would be another book but now just today 2/7/11 i finished iron queen and let me tell you it made me cry all i know is that julie kagawa has to hurry up with the release of iron knight!

Chryssi February 19, 2011 at 8:57 PM

In love with the Iron Fey Series and can not wait till the release of Iron Knight!

Angela February 20, 2011 at 11:01 PM

I love the series I had no clue about the winters passage book, and I honestly didn’t know Julie was going to put out the Iron Knight until now. Can’t wait to read it!

Samantha February 23, 2011 at 6:09 PM

OMG, I love the Iron Fey series and I’m am just DYING for Iron Knight to come out. I got told that it might be coming out sometime this year and I REALLY hope that that is true!

raven March 13, 2011 at 5:50 PM

OMG!!!!! when does iron night come out?!?!?!? i need to know because i just finished iron queen and i NEED this book!!!!!!!!

Staci March 14, 2011 at 4:56 PM

For whoever wants to know, Iron Knight will be released this coming november, 2011 :) I hope no one dies, and they all live happily ever after!!! This cliff-hanger, someone-always-has-to-die-in-the-end thing is getting old and annoying and quite depressing!

Marisa March 15, 2011 at 8:20 PM

To tell the truth, I thought this series would be very stupid and a waste of time. But it wasn’t even my book, my twin had the Iron King for a month and never picked it up. So when I was bord one weekend and everyone was asleep, I picked the book up and read the whole thing. Love this series!
Favorite book outta the series-Iron Daughter!

Irma March 16, 2011 at 10:10 AM

Wilhemina April 3, 2011 at 7:18 AM

I just finished reading the iron queen in one day and the iron daughter the day before. I have very been hooked to a book like that before. I found myself reading til my eyes stung megan and ash’s story. The iron daughter would have to be my favorite. What started out a an easy book for a book report (the iron king) has turn into a slight obsession on my part. Gotta have the iron knight!

Daisy April 6, 2011 at 2:19 PM

OH MY GOSH!! I love these books soooo much!I finished reading The Iron Queen, and i have to say IT IS A GOOOD! BOOK!! I love these books so much, i can’t WAIT till Iron Knight comes out!

Jasmine April 10, 2011 at 11:35 PM

OMG is all I can really say. I thought it would just another stupid book but it was awesome. I cant wait for The Iron Knight to come out.

Brittany April 22, 2011 at 12:00 PM

Jennifer May 23, 2011 at 8:05 AM

I love these books. She has done such a great job in writing these books. Can’t wait for the next books.

prissy June 11, 2011 at 4:09 AM

I <3 the books! And i cant wait 4 iron knight! but i have a question, in the end, meghan and ash DON'T get together?? or will they? thx;)

AJ June 17, 2011 at 7:17 PM

I am so glad she decided to write another book. when i read iron queen i cried so hard! Meghan and Ash deserve their happy ending, and i hate it when books end like that. Kind of like the sweet far thing? I have so many expectations about this book!

Kaila June 23, 2011 at 10:39 PM

There is a new book that came out called Summer’s Crossing (part of the miniseries/is like Winter’s Passage) that comes right after the Iron Queen and right before the Iron Knight. It is an ebook-only and it is FREE until June 29, 2012! http://www.eharlequin.com/author.html?authorid=1928&cmpid=PSSUPSADS201012080002&kw=the%20iron%20daughter (is found in the Author Extras section on the left-hand side) http://ebooks.eharlequin.com/3995B554-42A7-4947-9FD2-3DD2AD4614B5/10/141/en/ContentDetails.htm?ID=6FEE7B3A-8BA2-46ED-9410-81ACE573B95D

This is my favorite series! I can’t wait for the Iron Knight!

Kristin August 4, 2011 at 10:01 AM

I LOVE these books. I read the first one in an airport. I really just randomly picked up a book, because I was on my way to Florida and I needed something to read for the flight over. It was an amazing book and when I finished it I wished I had picked up the second one while I saw it. Now I have read them all and am waiting, very impatiently I should add, for Iron Knight.

ingrid August 15, 2011 at 9:58 PM

samantha October 20, 2011 at 7:17 PM

I saw the book in my friends locker and asked if she was going to read it she said no and I told her I was stealing ti from her for a day. I read it that day totally forgetting my homework and read. I told her to bring me the second and third if she had it and I spent the whole weekend reading. Never went to sleep just read. And when I finished the 3rd book I cried so hard. I am counting the days for the 5th book. Can not wait 5 days left. I am team Ash all the way too.

Maryse October 23, 2011 at 4:28 PM

Everyone seems to love this series so much! I’m curious if your friend now want to read it, cause of how much you loved it…

Kristin November 8, 2011 at 3:10 PM

These books are amazing. I accidently skippeped over Winters Passage and Summers Crossing, luckely I was not confused. But why don’t most people know about those books? I can never find them in the library. It’s like their not important. Why is that?

Kristin November 8, 2011 at 3:12 PM

Oh, and i’m Team Ash. Always. (: I felt the need to say that as well. <3

Sabrina March 30, 2012 at 9:46 PM

I loved these books. I couldnt put them down, I would read one then grab another without putting it down and before i knew i was done. i cant wait for the other ones to come out! And k people dont hate me for this but i realty want megan and puck to be together! I think they would be a rlly cute couple! im hopeing something happens in the next book. i like ash as a character 2 but im team puck! :)

Angela April 10, 2012 at 2:49 PM

I really love the Iron Fey series when i was reading these books it really made me feel like Megan Chase and i kind of wish i was he because she has two guys who love her and care for her and i wish it was like that for me but anyway this series was amazingly good but i wish they would of made winters passage and summers passage into an actuall book instead of just to read onlining but anyway i really would like to see these books in a movie. I just really love the series! I love Ash!

Amber April 27, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Great series! Finished the whole series in a month, I sure hope there is another book to finish it up or continue the story. Did the prophecy come true? What happens to the Forgotten?

Nicky January 1, 2013 at 10:27 PM

Karen March 8, 2013 at 7:42 PM

Does anyone know when Traitor Son is due out?

Karen March 8, 2013 at 7:47 PM

I by no means am a teen … my children are grown with kids of their own and I LOVE this series! Read all the books reading Summers Crossing (I know out of order) and am loving it! Dying for Traitor Son!
Also I do believe we need MOVIES! Not 1 but a series of movies like the Twlight (by the way which I have not read or seen)!

Christel March 10, 2013 at 12:24 PM

I just finished the last one, Lost Prince, is there gonna be another one , and soon I hope, these books asre soooo good.

Sarah September 1, 2013 at 7:11 AM

Amaris March 2, 2014 at 12:12 AM

I loved this series. I’m a senior in high school and I just finished Iron Traitor not 2 mins. ago. THAT ENDING WAS NOT COOL. I’m praying for another book that fixes it >.<

Leah March 20, 2014 at 12:22 AM

LOVE these books! But why isnt there any mention of the in-between books??
ive just read books 1, 2, 3 & 4 and have only just found out about the 4 books ive missed!
would of loved to read them all in order but too excited to go back and read them – bring on the next book!

Maryse March 20, 2014 at 8:29 AM

Hi Leah!

The in-between books are listed already (above in the series reading order). I hope that helps!

Leah April 2, 2014 at 10:38 PM

Hi Maryse,

I have since fount the in between book but only after looking them all up.. when buying off itunes and so on it only lists the mail books.

Anyone know when the next book after The Iron Traitor is out?
-guessing it wont be out for awhile though??

Emma Hooper August 2, 2014 at 4:57 PM

I got number 1-4 (1,4,5,8) and I’m in love with the first. I haven’t finished reading it yet but I was wondering if the story would be all messed up if I missed out Winter’s Passage or any others? X

bekkah satterly August 9, 2014 at 9:21 AM

I have read the Iron Fey books a hundred times. They are by far my favorite series. Curious if there is going to be another book after the Iron Traitor.

magan August 13, 2014 at 9:39 AM

I have read the iron king, and have iron daughter. could I read iron daughter and go back to winters passage and not be lost?

Peggy December 18, 2014 at 7:56 PM

I listen to this series all the time and just finished the Iron Traitor. I hope you have the next one finished because the suspense is killing me already. I love this series.
