Still drawn to Luke Grey and still sheltering a Selkie in her rooms, one would assume that Elloren Gardner and her friends were in the safest part of their screwed up lives. At least for a while. Whilst trying to battle her wandfasting with Lucas, Yvan grows more enticing and mysterious, leaving Elloren wondering if she ever really knew him at all. After risking leaving the realm of Verpacia, Elloren and her partners find themselves further into a war they didn’t want and facing consequences that even their worst nightmares couldn’t conjure.

Wow! Let me say this. Who needs a time gap between books? The Iron Flower picks up almost instantly after The Black Witch, and with so many twists and turns in the plot, trust me when I say it is extremely difficult to keep spoilers off of this page. I swear that I gained whiplash from this amazing addition to the Black Witch Chronicles! I did not enjoy, however, how The Iron Flower suddenly became more dependent on, yep, you guessed it, a love dynamic. “We shouldn’t” is good and scandalous for a while, and then I start to cringe.

To be fair, heaps of things tied together in this book, yet there was an element of predictability there, which I was hoping to be proved wrong about. I was a bit disappointed when I got part of the ending I had predicted because it took the fun out of reading the book. 

I am going to have to leave this review here, readers, as I am worried I will either tempt you too much, put you off, or spoil the book for you if I continue writing. Let me just say, my friends who say “tell me what happens!... Wait! No! I need to wait!” are more than explanatory about how you should feel about this upcoming addition.
