Book Review: The Iron Butterfly Series, by Chanda Hahn

I came across this series a few weeks ago, thanks to a free download of the first book. It was one of those books that I had sitting in my Kindle library for ages (just me? or does anyone else do that) until I finally got round to reading. At first, it didn’t seem like something I’d particularly enjoy; it’s very fantasy, and recently I’ve been reading more real-world or historical-type fantasy.

Anyway, The Iron Butterfly was on my Kindle, and I had some time to spare, so I read it. Then I bought and read books 2 and 3 in the space of just a few days. I should mention that I hardly ever do that! I usually read a free book, conside buying the sequel, then never get round to it. Actually, I often don’t even finish free downloads. I’m quite picky.

This definitely isn’t a perfect series. There were a few bits that didn’t quite make sense to me, and the climax seemed a bit rushed. But there was something about the series overall that I found very compelling. For example, I usually don’t like books with multiple/competing love interests, but this series may have finally converted me! (note: it seems it actually has; I am currently reading and enjoying another love triangle series…)

I recommend that you give this series a try and see what you think. I wasn’t expecting much from it when I began reading, but it surprised me in a very good way!
