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 is the first book in the Iron Fey Call of the Forgotten series, which happens to be a spin-off of the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. The Lost Prince is about Ethan trying to find his half-phouka friend, Todd, who got kiddnapped by a new strange type of fey called the forgotten. The Lost prince was filled with nostalgia, awesome adventures in the NeverNever, the fey, and of course Kierran.
I loved the book because of those awesome moments were you actually see Meghan, Ash or Puck. Although I hated how we only see Meghan once,and Ash and Puck twice. I know that the book isn’t about them, it’s about Ethan and Kierran, but I just really miss them. Meghan, Ash and Puck were just so freaking awesome and were amazing as a team. But enough with the old Characters, lets talk about the new. Well the new characters are Ethan (He’s in the Iron Fey series but he was only a kid so he still counts as new), Kierran and Kenzie.
Ethan’s an interesting character because through out the book you see how badly the fey had affected him growing up. He’s so much like his sister when it comes to how much courage he has and how he felt being the leader. To be honest I really liked everything about him except his thoughts on Meghan leaving to be the Iron Queen and Ash in general. I can’t blame him for Ash because of his point of view, I mean Ash took his sister away from him so I can see where he’s coming from. But when it comes to Meghan abandoning him I just don’t feel the same way that he feels. I thought he would blame himself because if he hadn’t been kidnapped this wouldn’t have happened and she has to stay away from her family just like she said in the letter because she’s afraid that her enemies might get to them.
Kenzie is the next main character on the list. She is the love interest of Ethan. I like her; she was open to new ideas, she made a good reporter, she was so kind, and she was great with quick thinking. I liked the twist of surprise near the end when u learn of her health. I really didn’t expect it and I like how it tied in with how everyone treats her and also how she acts.
The last main character on the list (but not at all the least) is Kierran. Kierran is Meghan and Ash’s child. Isn’t that so freaking awesome! He was such a good character because he moved like Ash but he saw things like Meghan, he looked like Meghan but he looked like Ash when it came to his jaw, his stance, the way he fought, and of course, his muscle. Damn, I imagined him so hot! I looked him a lot but I disliked his love interest because she was a summer faery who doesn’t do much. I imagined him with a winter faery, who fights like a bad-ass and is crazily beautiful. Another thing was how he acted in the end. I don’t know what to make of it because it was kind of confusing. It also doesn’t help that the next book is called the Traitor Son.
Overall, it was pretty good and I liked how it didn’t completely mimic the original series and novellas.
Maybe if Kierran had a bad-ass girlfriend and not a damsel in distress and Ethan wasn’t a jackass to Meghan it would have gotten full marks.
