A Crown of Iron & Silver
by Hailey Turner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
All roads lead back to the Dominion Sect, even the ones that follow the Hawthorne Path.
This series just keeps getting better and better, just like Hailey's writing! I am so hooked on her as a writer it isn't funny.
Where to begin... this book is EVERYTHING. It's Patrick and Jono, Wade eating his way through the adventure, Jono taking no crap from Estelle and Youssef, THE HELLRAISERS - FINALLY!, the fae, the Celtic Pantheon, Patrick being Patrick, NADINE IS BACK, and there are so many other things that happen. This book is literally a whirlwind ride into the heart of chaos and back out again... oh, did I mention Patrick and Jono visit Tír na nÓg? Oh yeah, that happens too!
In a continuation of the first two books, Patrick and Jono are once again pitted against the Dominion Sect, who are aided by certain factions of the Celtic Pantheon this time around. The Wild Hunt and the Sluagh prey on Manhattanites as Patrick tries to figure out where a changeling came from and the NYC God Pack steps up it's attacks on Jono and his pack, causing lines to finally be drawn.
Patrick's old unit, led by Captain Gerard Breckenridge, comes for a visit and to discuss the search for the Morrigan's staff, the task that General Noah Reed, Patrick's former CO, had tasked them all with. To make matters worse, the Dominion Sect has captured the Summer Lady, grand daughter of the Queen of the Seelie, and who also happens to be Gerard's fiancee even as Estelle and Youssef's god pack step up their harrying of Jono and his pack, crossing a line from invasive to potentially deadly. New York is a city under seige from both the Seelie and the Unseelie Wild Hunt, people are terrified, and it's up to Patrick and his pack to figure out why. Deals are made that will help solidify Jono's pack's status in New York, deals that intersect with Patrick's soul debt to the Gods.
Patrick, Jono, and their pack and allies must cross the Veil, and take on the Unseelie Court in order to rescue the Summer Lady and once again stop Ethan from trying to basically destroy the world in his quest to become a God.
So get ready to Deck the halls with Iron and Silver. Have a Holly Jolly Wild Hunt, I'm Dreaming of a Hellraisers Christmas... Patrick, Jono, and their pack are up to their eyeballs in it, yet again. View all my reviews
