Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09—one of the last remaining illegal Metals—has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.

Ana’s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep them.

When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after them—and the coordinates—and not everyone wants them captured alive.

What they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their lives—and unearth dangerous secrets. But when a darkness from Ana’s past returns, she must face an impossible choice: does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves?"

My Thoughts:

I expected to like this book, but I did not expect to love this book as much as I did. If Star Wars and Pirates and Anastasia got together and made a book baby it would be this book. It established such an interesting world and had a FANTASTIC cast of characters. I seriously loved every single character and with each new chapter I changed my mind on who my favorite was.

I think my favorite thing about this book is we have two main characters and their arc is not to fall in love; they each have their own separate love interests and I just cannot get over how much I loved this and how different it was. And the cast of secondary characters was also fantastic. I loved them all; even the ones I didn’t get to know that well.

Our main heroine Ana is fierce and fearless and willing to fight for what she loves and believes in. Robb comes from a privileged life but he has constantly let his family down and he just wants to be able to be himself. Jax. Oh how I loved Jax. He is an interesting one and I won’t give away his secrets, but I loved him and all the secrets surrounding him. If I HAD to pick a favorite it would probably be him. Then there is D09 or as his friends call him, Di. Di is a Metal and was like a combination of C3PO and K-2SO and I loved him too. These are the main four but I can’t forget to mention Siege and E0S and the rest of the crew because they too were great.

Aside from the characters, I also loved the plot. I mean we all know the Anastasia story so there is some predictability there, but there was enough originality to the story that it kept me engaged and on edge. The sci fi aspect was great and I really liked the world building. That ending hurt my heart and I swear we better get a sequel or I will riot.

Heart Of Iron was such a great read and it kinda took me by surprise. I really recommend this one.
