THE LOST PRINCE by Julie Kagawa
About THE LOST PRINCE (taken from goodreads.com)
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.
Review of THE LOST PRINCE
Those of you that haven’t read The Iron Fey series you should probably read that one first. This series is a spin-off of The Iron Fey series. I was really excited when I learned that there would be more to this series. I loved the world that Julie created here and I wanted more. Well, I got more!
I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this book. It’s been a couple days since I finished it and I can still remember what happens, which is a really good sign. I think my only problem was with the main character, Ethan. I find that when a female author writes with a guy main character, or vice versa, it just doesn’t work. I think that guys and girls don’t understand each other well enough to write a successful story about them, unless they have a partner. He wasn’t a bad character, he just had something missing. He didn’t think like a male thinks, not that I know how they think. It just didn’t seem write. That’s probably my only complaint about this book.
I loved going back to the Nevernever again. I missed all those characters. I was shocked to see how Meghan’s life turned out. It was cute though. It was a little similar to the previous series though. A new kind of fey is appearing and the characters have to go figure out what. I hope the rest of the series is different though because I don’t want to read the same story with different characters. I want something new and different.
