The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1) by Julie Kagawa ~ Review

Source:  Purchased audiobook

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 name is Ethan Chase.
And I may not live to see my
eighteenth birthday.


In my current paranormal love-fest, I am devouring books I missed along the way.  And this is one series I can't believe I didn't read.  I waited way too long to read it!

Ethan Chase.  Oh, I so love this boy.  Tortured by the Fae for his sight, he hasn't had the easiest childhood.  Though his sister rescued him when he was four years old, he hasn't seen her in years and he feels the lose deeply.  Starting at yet another school for the pranks the Fae have got him blamed for, Ethan tries very hard to keep to himself.  But Ethan is good guy.  He won't walk by a half-fey being bullied at school and he can't keep pushing the school reporter away.  As he is dragged into the Never Never again, he brings his knowledge and his Kali skills.  No one is messing with him again.     

I so enjoyed this world again.  It was nice to be in the never never again.  I enjoyed seeing familiar characters and meeting a few news ones as well.  I admit to being shocked by Keirran.  The cover of book two may have colored my beliefs but I wasn't expecting to like him let alone trust him.  And I do like him.  Something is up with that boy.  Him and Ethan definitely have the Ash/Puck thing going but it's more than that.  I can't wait to find out more.

Besides all the characters that I love and the world I so enjoy, this one is just a great story.  It can certainly stand alone without the first series.  Parts of it I was guessing right at but this author tends to take a different path than I ever expect.  It's refreshing.

And I so need more books like this.  Books I enjoy and speed through.  Books where I love the characters and a kiss is enough to satisfy me. Books that make me want to start the next book as soon as finish the first.  Books that are just great stories, great reads, great experiences.  The good stuff.  

If you missed this along the way, like I did, then make sure and get to it.  It's so worth the time and such a great diversion from the real world.  I want a Razon.  Want him on my shoulder.  And an Ethan.  I hope he gets his happy.  I hope Keirran does too.  

Paranormal Fae at it's best.  Don't miss this one.
