Posted on April 18, 2016
The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa has reached the 1 million copies sold mark. The announcement was made by the publisher Harlequin Teen. The fantasy series consists of seven novels and three novellas.
Natashya Wilson, Executive Editor of Harlequin Teen, says, "The first sentence on the first page of The Iron King captured my imagination and drew me into a world where faeries were real and anything could happen. As I read that original manuscript, my hands were shaking and I knew, I just knew, I had received something incredibly special. Watching The Iron Fey come to life and grow has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career, and I have been honored and privileged to work with Julie on this unforgettable series."
The Iron Fey series follows Meghan Chase, a young half-human, half-faery girl. Meghan fights to claim her magical birthright after her half-brother, Ethan, is abducted. Her attempt to rescue her brother draws her into the Nevernever. The Nevernever is a magical world where the Iron fey are raining destruction upon traditional faeries. The series also features a mysterious cat named Grimalkin that knows and sees all. You can find out more about the series on the author's website, juliekagawa.com.
Kagawa says in a statement, "It's incredibly exciting. Back when I first started The Iron King, I was just an unknown writer who wanted to be published. I had no idea what would happen, how the series would unfold and evolve into this massive thing with its own history, characters, and backstory. And here we are, one million books later, and the world of the Iron Fey has grown beyond all my expectations."
