Review: The Iron Thorn

The Iron Thorn (Iron Codex, #1)The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge
Hardcover, 512 pages
Published February 22nd 2011
by Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Caitlin Kittredge has created a complex world of magic, machines, and science with the release of The Iron Thorn. There are layers of our world that are hidden behind the law of the land of Iron. The language of Machines has overtaken a history filled with magic and fey, except now it is coming to an end.

The story revolves around the main character named Aoife (amazing name) and her family's history that is now changing the very fabric of the worlds.

There is magic, and mystery, suspense, and romance for everyone in the book. I loved the descriptions of the great machines that imprison and drive the world of Iron and the complexities involved in the school of learning, as well as how the past was hidden from the populace.

The book was fantastic to read and think about how a story can change a world, and how a group of people can destroy a past with those words and condemn people for not only remembering the past but also in their being a part of it.

The Iron Thorn is a book you have got to read and experience.
