My Book Boyfriend: Ash

To find out more about this super fun event, created by the Unread Reader, click here

My literary crush this week is none other than..... *drumroll*... Prince Ash from the The Iron Fey series!
*Sigh* I just finished the fabulous 4th (and last) book, The Iron Knight, and I must say, Julie Kagawa had me totally swooning for him all over again! 

  • True name: Ashallyn’darkmyr Tallyn
  • Winter prince---third son of Mab
  • black hair, silver eyes, all-around gorgeousness...
  • great hunter and fighter
  • kinda broody (in an attractive way of course!)
  • friends/immortal enemies with Robin Goodfellow (also quite crushworthy....)
  • a very loyal and devoted Knight   
 But let's let the quotes speak for themselves shall we?

"His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. “I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I’m alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away.” One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. “I guess I should’ve warned you that I have a slight possessive streak." 
-Ash to Megan 

"But ... but what if I hit you?”
A snort. “You’re not going to hit me.”
“How do you know?” I bristled at his amused tone. “I could hit you. Even master swordsmen make mistakes. I could get a lucky shot, or you might not see me coming. I don’t want to hurt you.”
He favored me with another patient look. “And how much experience do you have with swords and weapons in general?”
“Um.” I glanced down at the saber in my hand. “Thirty seconds?”
He smiled, that calm, irritatingly confident smirk. “You’re not going to hit me."

-Ash and Megan

“My name is Ashallyn’darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court.” Though his voice was soft, it never wavered, and I felt breathless at hearing his full name. His True Name. “Let it be known—from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on…” His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. “I am yours."

“My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl.”  


  1. First off I LOVE Milo Ventimiglia! I was totally Team Jess on Gilmore Girls! LOL Ash has some of the most swoon worthy quotes. His love for Meghan was really amazing. I love Puck too! Great series. And I would have never thought of Milo as Ash but he makes a great Ash!

  2. Great pick for Ash. Is the last pic from Heros?!? That would make fabulous Ash and Megan XD

  3. Well, I was a total Team Dean on GG. But Milo is such a cutie. And he totally fits the Ash profile! And he kinda looks like guy on the cover, too! Or was that Puck? Heh. Cute BB:)

  4. Yay! I can finally comment on your blog! I've been wanting to for a long time now. Thank You! :)

    Okay, seriously, I love ASH! From the first moment he told Meghan he'd kill her, I totally swooned. LOL

    I'd wish he'd tell me that he was mine. *le sigh*


Thanks so much for commenting! I read every single one and they always make my day! <3

*Sorry, this is now an awards-free blog as I've already been nominated for them. Thanks for your consideration!
