What it's about:
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's 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 myths 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.

My thoughts:
AHHH!!!! Oh how I love Julie Kagawa's fey series!

When I saw that NetGalley had The Lost Prince on there, I squealed really loud and requested my copy. Thankfully Harlequin Teen always allows me to get copies real fast so within the hour I had my hands on a copy of Lost Prince.

It only took me two sittings to read the book and that was only because I had to force myself to put the book down so I could get a few hours of sleep. Otherwise, it would have been a one sit read.

It made me a little sad thinking about how the adorable little Ethan who loved his sister so much and called her Meggy turned into this brooding, angry teenage boy. I wanted to hug him during the whole book and tell him everything will be okay, and then beat the crap out of some fairies for him.

This is definitely a part two series. There is constant reminders of what happened in all of the Iron Fey books throughout all of LP. All the same characters we know and love are back along with some new and interesting ones. There is new bad guys, new settings, and awww, new love as well. Can't forget the new love lines.

While this is a new Iron Fey book (sorta) it definitely has the same feel as Meghan's story, yet it is completely different. I'm really excited about this series and can not wait till the next book comes out.


  1. Ugh! If I don't get to this series soon you have my permission to beat me up!

  2. I squealed when I saw it pop up too. And then squealed even more when I was able to read it. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to do a reread. :]


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
