In the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing -- her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk on faerie wine, declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie. Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth -- that she is a changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen? Holly Black spins a seductive tale at once achingly real and chillingly enchanted, set in a dangerous world where pleasure mingles with pain and nothing is exactly as it appears.

Still cleaning up my database one old review at a time. Sorry if these seen this before. Ironside is the third book in the Modern Faerie Tales series that started with Tithe. Unlike Valiant, which was about an entirely new cast of characters (for the most part), this one brings back Roiben, Kaye a...
Better than Tithe in many ways, you can tell her writing style has developed since then.
I liked the ending and that's about it. I'm amazed that this book didn't get interesting until it was almost done. And I did't know this was number three in a series. That didn't take away from the story but I feel like I may have missed out on a few details since I haven't read the first two books....
I must say.. i loved this book :) It was an easy read and i enjoyed most of the characters :D The ending was such a great ending :)http://basicallybooks1994.blogspot.com/
