Author Thursdays - Julie Kagawa
"Careful human. Do not lose your heart to a faery prince. It never ends well" - The Iron King
After devouring the Iron Few series in 3 days, I could not think of any other author for my Author Thursday than the author of the very famous YA Fantasy series, The Iron Fey.
Julie Kagawa has written 4 full length novels and 2 novellas (ebook) in the Iron Few series which has found immense popularity amongst the teens and YA enthusiasts alike. The books are about Meghan Chase, an ordinary sixteen year old girl who discovers she is half-faery. The books chronicles her journey in the Faery world and the two handsome faieries - Puck and Ash.
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. She loves to read, paint and also spends a lot of time gaming. According to her, the idea for a faery book and its outline was more of a logical conclusion than just dreaming about it (finally an author who doesn't get ideas in a dream!). Her books ia a mix of traditional faery fantasy(faeries, goblins, dragons, etc) and technology (virus, bugs, Tablets). Her writing is very descriptive and the underlying sense of humor leaves you totally addicted to it. Below are the list of books in her Iron Fey series listed in the order it should be read (Thanks Missie!):
She currently lives in Kentucky. To know more about her, visit her site : http://www.juliekagawa.com
