Review: The Lost Prince

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1)The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1)

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: October 23, 2012

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.
I've never been a huge fan of The Iron Fey series; while I enjoyed it, I wasn't really obsessed with it like some people are. I was expecting a similar reaction when I read The Lost Prince. Now I understand why everyone fell in love with these books. I absolutely loved The Lost Prince. 

I think a big part of why I loved this book so much was because of Ethan. I loved him from the beginning of the book. He is certainly different from little boy we met in The Iron King. He has grown up always having to watch his back for fey and heartbroken because he misses his sister. He definitely puts on a hard exterior and doesn't get close to anyone. Every once in a while we'll see a different side of Ethan. He was overall a really good and sweet guy and I really liked him. 

It was nice returning to this world again. We see appearances from characters from past books. We also meet some great, new characters, too.

This book was very addicting; I read it very quickly. There were several twists and turns in this book. Although, I totally saw the Kenzie's big secret coming. And by the end of the book... I need the next book in the series as soon as possible.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by how The Lost Prince turned out. It had everything I wanted: action, romance, magic, and Ethan, who is his own category. I'm not sure how those who love the original series will react to this book, but for someone who isn't the biggest fan, I loved it. 
4.5 stars
