Review: Iron Master by Jennifer Ashley


Book Description

Stuart Reid is an Iron Master—a Dark Fae with a rare ability to make iron do his bidding. Exiled by the High Fae who fear him, he now lives in a simple house in Shiftertown outside Las Vegas, watching over Peigi, a bear Shifter woman, and the cubs she cares for.

Peigi, rescued from an evil Shifter and welcomed into the Vegas Shiftertown, knows Reid and the cubs have helped her survive and heal.

She also knows Reid is alone and lonely, a strong man coping with his exile. The bond she feels pulling her to him scares the crud out of her—she’s been down this road before.

When Reid’s people send him a desperate call for help, Peigi senses danger to him—too much of it. She finds she’ll do anything, even sacrifice herself and her happiness, to keep him safe.

My Review

Peigi and Stuart have been slowly getting closer throughout this series. She is very cautious because of her past and Stuart is too. But these two really like each other so it was really nice to see these two finally giving into their feelings. 

Stuart starts hearing from his people that they need his help even though he's been exiled and never thought he could go back home. Peigi has a feeling that he's in danger and asks the other shifters to help out and even though they don't actually trust Stuart because he's dark Fae, they do decide to help where they can. 

The shifters are still in shifter towns and a lot of humans still don't like them. The one things about this series that I've always hated was how badly the shifters are treated by the humans. Shifters have to wear collars that shock them when they get angry and have to live in shifter towns. They don't have a lot of freedom or rights. 

Stuart has been helpful to the shifters so they allow him to live in one of the shifter towns. He lives in a house with Peigi and her adopted cubs. He looks out for her and the cubs. When Stuart is called home to Faerie because he can manipulate iron and the dark Fae need him to help them before the light Fae kill them all I knew things were going to be complicated. There are a couple of twists that were interesting but I thought the story wrapped up nicely. 

I really liked reading Peigi and Stuart's book. I've been waiting for them to finally see that they were meant for each other. I would definitely read this series in order to get a better understanding of what is going on from one book to another.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
