The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

For Review: Mira Ink
Published: 6 January 2013

From Goodreads: 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.

Having absolutely loved Kagawa's Iron Fey series I couldn't wait to read this spin off featuring Ethan. And it definitely lived up to all my expectations!

While I admit it was a bit strange at first to have Ethan as a (rather hot!) teen after him only being a four year old in the previous series I quickly adapted. It was great to get back into the world Kagawa created in the previous series, with all my favourite characters making a return. In addition we get to meed some wonderful new characters, including Keirran and Kenzie, both of whom have their own interesting stories (I am definitely intrigued by how Kenzie's storyline will pan out!). Those who have read the novella Iron's Prophecy will have an insight into some of the things Ethan is trying to work out. I hadn't read it when I first started reading The Lost Prince but I admit I temporary put The Lost Prince down in order to read it - and I am glad I did - I think it gives you a better basis for some of the motivations in The lost Prince.

Julie Kagawa has become one of my favourite authors. I have loved everything she has written and I can't wait to read more. The Lost Prince is full of adventure, romance and magic. A winning combination!
