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

Published: 2012
Genre: Young Adult. Paranormal
My Rating: 4 Stars

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.

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1) is a spin of series from Julie Kagawa's original The Iron Fey Series. Following Ethan Chase, Meghan Chase's or now known as the Iron Queen's brother as he tries to avoid and resist being pulled in to the world of the Fey like his older sister.

Julie's work has captivated and enchanted me once again rendering me breathless and borderline obsessive over the land of Tir Na Nog. I was so excited for this book and I was ecstatic about the return of my favourite characters Puck, Ash and Meghan, though I cannot deny I was somewhat disappointed that they only appeared twice and I am still pining for more. I was over the moon about Grimalkin made a large appearance through out! Man I love that cat!

I won't go in to the details of the new group because I don't want to spoil anything though I think one character espeacilly will leave all previous Iron Fey fans spectacularly excited!

I love how Julies writing is yet again flawless, she always reflects and transports us deeply in to the magical world with her description, this woman can do no wrong! Not ever!

I did have to give the book a four star, really more of a four point five just because I didn't love the characters as much as Puck, Meghan and Ash. Ethan was kinda broody and angry though understandably and his love interest was okay but she did leave a massive surprise at the end. The second male lead was no Puck still a character I want more of. I always loved Pucks humour it was one of the best things about the Iron Fey series and my heart was kinda sad as this humour was mostly absent from the group.

 But don't let my upset get in the way of reading this book it is fantastic! And if you haven't read the original series then you must! It is one of the best series I have ever come across. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out!
