Top 10 Books For People Who Like The Iron Fey

This week, we’re recommending books based on a certain book.  I decided to go with The Iron Fey series, because it’s one of my favorite series.  I love the characters, the settings and the fairie mythology.  And who doesn’t want recommendations that are full of the paranormal, mythology and fairy tales?

  1. Wings by Aprilynne Pike.  I love this series and different the fairies are.  I can totally see fairies as being similar to plants, and I love the hierarchy of fairies.
  2. Need by Carrie Jones.  I love the pixies and her twist on mythology.  It’s also a lot funnier than I had ever expected.
  3. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter.  I really liked this adaptation of the Persephone myth and how Carter incorporated Greek mythology.  It stands out, because I haven’t read anything else like it.
  4. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.  The one thing that I love about this series is how funny it is.  I think that if you like the humor in The Iron Fey, then you’ll like the humor in Paranormalcy.  Plus, there are some really interesting relationships and alliances in both books that fans will appreciate.
  5. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand.  Unearthly is on the list because I love how Hand created her own angel mythology that’s believable and and interesting.  The characters are all so interesting and different.
  6. Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier is an interesting re-telling of the 12 Dancing Princesses and The Frog Prince.  I love the combination of the two fairy tales and the setting is very detailed and memorable.
  7. Graceling by Kristin Cashore.  I loved the settings in both Graceling and The Iron Fey.  And if you like Meghan, you’ll love Katsa.
  8. Entwined by Heather Dixon.  I’ve gone back and forth on whether I wanted to recommend this book.  It is another 12 Dancing Princesses re-telling, but I decided to include it because I’m becoming a fan of fairy tale re-tellings.  And there is something magical about escaping into a different world to dance.
  9. Tiger’s Curse.  I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest fan of this book.  But I’m still recommending it because I loved the Indian mythology in it.  It’s definitely different, and the focus on Indian mythology is worth it!
  10. Anew by Chelsea Fine.  A girl with a curse that kills her and then brings her back to life?  You can’t go wrong with an idea like that.  Plus, there’s a very interesting take on the Fountain of Youth, which I liked a lot.

Are there any other books that fans of the Iron Fey will like?

  1. The Iron King is next for me to read! I was making a Graceling/Iron Fey comparison in my head and I know so many people who love the series as well. Very nice list! 🙂
