Review: The Iron Butterfly

The Iron Butterfly (Iron Butterfly, #1)

The Iron Butterfly

By Chanda Hahn


Blurb: Imprisoned, starved and left with no memories, Thalia awakens to find herself at the mercy of an evil cult known as the Septori. Their leader has chosen Thalia as the test subject for a torture device of untold power, designed to change and twist her into something that is neither human nor Denai.

Escaping, Thalia finds an unwilling warrior to protect her and an unlikely Denai to befriend her. After finding a home at the Citadel as a servant, Thalia’s worst nightmare comes to life and she begins to show signs of power. Scared and unable to control her gifts, she tries to hide her past to fit in among the Denai. But the Septori want their latest test subject back and will stop at nothing to retrieve her, dead or alive.

My Rating: 5 stars!
I love, love, love, loved this book. Plus one more love for emphasis. Chanda Hahn is such an amazing author! I purposely refused to read any of the reviews so that they wouldn't bias me while I was reading, and I think this helped me enjoy it even more than usual.

I have been wanting a book that I can fangirl about for a while now. This one fits the bill. So...just let me gush about Kael for a sec. And I am sorry that this isn't a proper review. I just...the amazingness has stunned me.

HE'S SO MYSTERIOUS!! Oh my goodness, I think he may even be better than Jared from Unenchanted (same author) You just want to read more about him.

And then there's Joss, who is the sweet and kind nice guy. (Therefore, I think Kael's going to be the guy Thalia ends up with, even though they currently have a love/hate, but mostly hate, relationship right now. They'll get together. Eventually.:D But back to Joss.) He's so sweet!

Now, Thalia. I thought she was a pretty cool character. She was able to overcome the torture the Septori put her through, and go from being a scared and meek victim to a pretty kick-butt heroine, in my humble opinion. I can see some people thinking that she wasn't strong enough, but my reply would be to think about how you would act if you were getting tortured by an evil cult, and all your memories were gone so you had no idea who you were. (Speaking of which...THAT ENDING! AHHHH!) So, I DO think she was a pretty strong heroine.

And Faraway! I can't leave him out of this review. I loved him! I can't say anything else, though, without giving away major spoiilers.

There were a few grammar mistakes in here, but they weren't too bad. Anyone who couldn't stand Unenchanted because of the spelling errors shouldn't be afraid to try out this book.

This was so good. I cannot wait to get my hands on The Steele Wolf!
