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

Title: The Lost Prince
Author: Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4.9 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Release date: October 23rd, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Summary: 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.
(summary from Goodreads)

My thoughts: I had very high expectations of this book, because I loved the other books by her. Miss Kagawa didn't disappoint me. Except for a few details I loved the book as much as the rest of the books.
   First detail that disappointed me: It was really hard to get into the book. It was a little boring in the beginning, which was why I chose to do other things instead of reading. Once you got into the book, however, I couldn't put the book down, and didn't do anything but read in a few days.
   Second disappointing detail: Kenzie. I mean, it was nothing directly wrong with her, I just didn't like her as much as I'd hoped to do. I was a bit annoyed at her sometimes. The secret that came to light in the end - well, I'd expected something like that. Or guessed, rather.
   Last disappointing detail: I'd wished to see more of Meghan, Ash and Puck. I miss them a lot. In this book, they were only in it once - Meghan - and twice - Ash and Puck. Hopefully we'll see them more in the next book.
   Otherwise I loved it. I was hysterical every time someone mentioned Meghan, Ash or Puck, not to mention nostalgic - resulting in me re-reading the series.
   As usual, the writing was good, and exciting (except in the beginning). I like the characters, especially Keirran (although sometimes I want to strangle him).
   Ethan wasn't exactly like I'd expected him, but not disappointing. I liked him. He was a bad boy, but I liked him. Of course he had a reason, one we found out later on in the book. I'm looking forward of following Ethan, Kenzie and Keirran, and hopefully a little more of the former trio.
   P.S: Sorry about the short review. I wrote this a while ago, and thought it was worth posting, anyway.


  1. I liked this The Lost Prince (and The Iron Traitor) but no one can replace Meghan, Ash and Puck. I get so excited everytime they're mentioned in the book, too! haha.. So excited to read the third book. It's been a long wait.

    1. Yes, I agree! I can't wait for the last book :)
