Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin for sending me a copy of this book for review!

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 Review:
I wasn't really sure what to expect from The Lost Prince when I first started reading it. I LOVED The Iron Fey series so I was hoping this book would continue the magic that was in the series about Ethan's sister, Megan Chase. I am SO glad that The Lost Prince brought us right back in the land of Faery, and was a really strong book.

What I liked about the Lost Prince was that the plot wasn't predictable at all. It wasn't too fast and I never knew what to expect which was really great! It was definitely nice to see the character of Ethan grow, especially since we only knew a little bit about him from the Iron Fey series. It was great seeing him develop throughout the story, and I liked seeing his various encounters in the land of Faery. It was also so nice to see the return of some old characters; including Ash and Meghan!! I was a little bit sad that they weren't in this book more, but I have to move past the Iron Fey series ending and get use to the introduction of new characters.

I also love how Julie Kagawa was able to really use some awesome imagery in the describing Nevernever. I really could imagine all of Ethan's adventures in my head and I could really picture everything she was describing. Everything that Julie writes is so well written, and I found it hard to put this book down when I started it!

I know it's taken me awhile to review this book (with the craziness of school and such), but I am so glad I finally got around to read The Lost Prince! I can't wait for the next book in the series and find out more about the "forgotten."

My Rating:


  1. I loved The Iron Fey but I've been at 15% at this one for about two weeks. For some reason, I just can't get in it.

  2. I'm glad that you enjoyed this one! I felt the same way about Meghan and Ash, but I'm definitely looking forward to more of Ethan and his friends! (:

  3. I was also very happy with this book. It was a great start of this spin-off and it couldn't be better :D I was so happy to see Puck and Grimalkin back, because I love the cat's sarcasm, haha. Great review.


  4. I want to read this book so bad, I loved the Iron Fey series. I'm not normally a fan of fae books either, so it was surprising to me how much I loved that series. Great review!

  5. Ahh, I want to read this so bad. I'm glad you gave it an awesome rating! unpredictable! This will be my first Fye book.
