Valentine's Blog Event: Character Interview - The Iron Fey

Julie Kagawa. Yeah. That superwomangenius creator of the best faeries in all the land. JULIE. FREAKING. KAGAWA. Ahem. This amazing lady managed to wrangle in her three main faeries and one particularly sullen cat to sit for an interview with Lisa and I. I only became hooked on THE IRON FEY series late last year, thanks to much torture-inspired encouragement from so many of my bloggy friends and I can only think now, 'WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG?!' This is such an amazing series. Action, adventure, romance and such an imaginative world... but more importantly, characters that burrow deep into your heart. If you haven't read them yet, I suggest you do so now, unless you'd like Puck to persuade you... and that mischievous fey can be rather creative. In ways you won't want to experience.

Julie also has a new series coming out in May 2012, THE IMMORTAL RULES, a vampire dystopian that is guaranteed to be AMAZING! I cannot wait!

Character Interview - Ash, Meghan, Puck & Grimalkin

Ash, we know you and Puck share a very.... colourful and messy history together. But you were once the best of friends, despite his annoyingly charming ways! Can you share one of your more fond or memorable adventures together?

Ash: "..."

Puck: "Oh, lighten up, ice-boy, you know you love me. What about that time we stumbled into that hydra nest just as all the eggs were hatching? Or the time we fought a pair of minotaurs in the labyrinth? Or when we were attacked by that clan of harpies in the cave?

Ash: "I seem to remember all of those being your fault."

Puck: *Sighs* "Do I have to tell them about the time you lost your shirt to that satyr girl, ice-boy?"

Ash: "I will kill you."

Puck, a djinn grants you 3 wishes. What do you ask for? And don’t worry, we’ve checked already. It’s not some sneaky faery (or Ash in disguise) planning to rip out your heart or steal your innocence (ha!) in sacrifice the moment you make your wish!

Puck: "Wishes, huh? I dunno, there's this thing in the Nevernever called the Wishing tree, and if you can get past the giant snake that guards it, the tree grants you a wish. But it NEVER turns out the way you want. I remember this one time Ash and I...well, never mind. Three wishes, let's see. I'd wish Oberon would lighten up some, I'd wish pig-latin was a real language, and I'd wish for a turkey sandwich. That way, I know I'd get at least one of my wishes.

So tell us, Meghan... does Ash prefer boxers or brief- Yeesh! Put the sword down, Ash! We’re totally kidding! *was totally not kidding* Erm, so, Meghan... as you know, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. While not a tradition we imagine to be celebrated amongst the fey... if you could sneak Ash off to the land of mortals for the day, where would you love to take him?

Meghan: *Giggles* "Don't worry, Ash, I won't tell them. Some things are better left a mystery. ;-) And if I could go on a Valentine's date, I'd probably drag him to the movies. And watch some sort of sappy romantic comedy. In the back row. In the dark.

Ash: *Looks mildly confused.* "Is this a type of human movie-watching ritual I don't know about?"

Puck: "Don't worry, ice-boy. You won't remember much about the movie, anyway."

Grimalkin, we thought we’d consult the wisest kitty.... er, we mean the most DIGNIFIED AND SOPHISTICATED CAT in all of Nevernever on the fierce war that has raged between Team Ash and Team Puck fans. (Some are even sporting Team Grimalkin badges!). What are you thoughts on this? Have you secretly taken a side?

Grimalkin: "Please. Do not insult me with such ridiculous questions. I do not choose "sides" human. To do so implies I care about such trivial matters. And I have much more important things to worry about."

Puck: "Yeah, we all love you too, Furball."

What do you guys think of Julie’s next project involving vampires? Do you think you faeries have some fierce competition on their hands?

Puck: "Vampires? Come on, who can replace ME?"

Ash: "A challenge would be nice. I hope at least one of them can swing a sword."

Meghan: "Vampires have been around forever. I don't think we're in any danger of being forgotten.

Grimalkin: *Yawns*

I think Grim needs some perking up.... Puck can teach him how to play fetch, perhaps? *ruffles his fur* Naww, don't get all hissy and scratchy! Don't you guys just LOVE these characters? Have you read The Iron Fey? Or eager to become a fan? And who else is counting down the days until the release of The Immortal Rules?!

Julie actually wrote a short story inspired by Valentine's Day which sees Meghan taking Ash into the human world to experience this human tradition - it's so sweet! Head over to her website to read it!

We have TONS of giveaways for you to enter, but things are coming to a wrap soon, so hurry!

  9. Ok, so I read The Iron King, and wasn't a huge fan. I have the next two books in the series, because I was intrigued enough to think I'd eventually get to them, but was still a bit meh.

And this interview proves my case a million times over! :) LOL I kind of wish that Meghan would answer about Ash's boxers or briefs -- and GRIMALKIN! Ohhhh my sweet goodness, I love that kitty so much! He makes me want to be more of a cat person! x)
