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