Book Review: The Lost Prince By: Julie Kagawa

Book Description: 
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 Thoughts:
So this is a spin off of the FIRST series called "The Iron Fey" and for those of you who have read it, well, remember that little boy named Ethan? Brother to Meghan who went into the land of the Faery to rescue her brother from the Fey (in the first series) who was taken and replaced by a changeling. That little kid who started all of it and brought the Nevernever to us. Well for those of you who DO remember let me tell you something about him now...  he is not so little anymore. And this story is the first book to Julie Kagawa's new series called "The Forgotten Fey" and boy things do spin out of control for the fey in this new series.

Years later after everything that happened we're back into Chase house, only this time Meghan is not around and now Ethan has a story to tell. For years he's been trying to deal with all the consequences of seeing the fey and trying to protect himself and his family from their disastrous ways that they think is fun when they mess with humans and cause nothing but pain and trouble sometimes, all by himself too! And it hasn't been an easy task. Losing his sister he didn't have other choice than to blame all the fey world.

Now years after Meghan gone and Ethan doing all he can to keep people at a distance including the fey he is once again tangled up in a mess with them and this time he doesn't get just himself involved but 2 of his only "friends" too.

We follow Ethan back into the Nevernever when one of his only friends is taken and a girl that he likes follows him there. Together they meet up with some of our old friends from the first series and then we meet a few more new and fun characters.

If you enjoy an adventure into the fanatical world of the Fey then this is just for you! I had a blast reading it and I'm sure you will too!
