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

Synopsis from

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 Comments :

I looked forward to this book since I got to know about it. Finally managed to lay my hands on this

It seems that this will be the "second generation" and a branch off the Iron Fey Series.  Here Ash and Meghan's son will hold the fort. Will Julie Kagawa be able to evoke the same magic that she did when she wrote about Ash and Meghan?

Well, for me this book is good enough although at this stage it's still lacking of depth as compare to the rest of the Iron Fey books. It could have been that she is laying the foundation for the coming "Traitor Prince". Guess, by the title we can expect what the son of Ash and Meghan will do.

So far Kierran(Ash and Meghan's son) have not show much potential yet apart from being head strong and a bit selfish. Why did I say that? It's because he very well know what the danger is and how worried his parents will be and yet he did it. He jeapardise not only his own life but also of his Uncle Ethan Chase's life

The charater I love the most in this book is Kenzie. She is Ethan Chase friend. Hopefully, the author will not kill off her in the next book as in this book the author have already hinted something sinister about to happen to Kenzie.

Overal, am giving it 3.5 stars out of 5.


  1. Sorry you are finding this one lacking in depth, sadly it often seems to happen with books that form a series.

  2. *sigh* I did not like this book as much as I liked the original series. I kinda hate Ethan Chase, and the book is somewhat predictable at some point. I found no joy of surprises, and the only saving grace was probably the appearance of the original trio- Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grimalkin.
