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 a wonderful continuation of the world created in Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series weaving new characters with a familiar and fascinating world. I loved the intricate descriptions of the Neverever, especially the unique differences between the Iron Fey land and the Winter and Summer Fey lands. The mystery behind the disappearing Fey was tragic and complex and is an excellent start for what looks to be a truly compelling story arc.
I like that Ethan Chase is the main character for this series since we get to see what happens to Meghan’s family after she leaves for Faerie in the original books. He is an excellent bridge between the two series and it feels like a natural expansion of Julie Kagawa’s world. Kagawa did an excellent job of creating sympathy for Ethan Chase and even his parents as he is forced to live his life in constant fear of being kidnapped again by the Fey, though I felt like he went overboard with his goth/antisocial demeanor especially since it seemed to bring more attention to him by his classmates and teachers.
THE LOST PRINCE brings readers back to the intricately realized world and unique characters we fell in love with in the Iron Fey series. I look forward to seeing what new adventures Ethan will meet in THE TRAITOR SON due out September 2013.
