The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa
379 pages, YA Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
The Iron Fey, Call of the Forgotten #1
Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.
That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.
Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.
My 2 cents: OMG, I forgot how much I love these books by Julie Kagawa! Loved, loved, loved this book!
It was nice to have a new protaganist to root for. Ethan is all grown up, and HOT. He has developed into a bad ass of his own (or at least he acts like Mr. Tough Guy, as his love interest Kenzie likes to call him!) and has no intention of being the hero of this story.
But he slowly gets sucked into it, because of his new friends. He's not as uncaring as he lets on! I loved Kenzie, she was a perfect match for him! We actually learned a lot about her in this book, which I liked. Meghan, Ash, and Puck are not in very much of the story, but they do make appearances. But instead of the Puck and Ash duo we get Ethan and Meghan and Ash's son, Kierran. I read the entire story with a bid of trepidation on those two. Why? Read The Iron Legends to find out! (It involves a prophecy between Ethan and Kierran!)
Overall, this was a fabulous story! Fans of the Iron Fey will not be disappointed. If you haven't read The Iron Fey series, its not a requirement to read this; but it will help you with the back story. I give it 5 stars!
