TheLostPrince

Blurb:

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 name is Ethan Chase.
And I may not live to see my
eighteenth birthday.</em

The Iron Fey series is back with a bang!

Remember the cute, curly haired, little four-year-old boy who was kidnapped in the last series and older sister Meghan went to the NeverNever to bring him back?

If you do then picture the scene 13 years on from now… And Ethan.. Well Ethan is freaking HOT! And these books are all about him…

Ethan always wanted to stay from anything relates to the magical fey realm or fairies. The nightmare memories from his childhood of being a prisoner in enormous iron castle is still haunting him so badly that his heart is nothing but full of hatred against entire fey kind. He even blames them for the distance that has formed between him and his older sister Megan, who fell in love with one of them and left their family. Which is why Ethan wouldn’t dare to think or look at the fey kind; neither could he let them know about his existence or his power to see through the glamour of fairies.

Yet when his half breed friend gets kidnapped by a new and vicious race of forgotten fairies he’s forced to go back to the world of NeverNever, and along with the girl he would never dare to fall for…

AAAAHHHH

THIS BOOK!

I think I enjoyed it more than the Iron Fey books!

In this one we see Ethan go back to Faery, where me meets his nephew Keirran and has a not so happy family reunion with Meghan and Ash.

Of course we all know the reason as to why Meghan kept Keirran and Ethan seperate all those years… The prophecy.

It doesn’t come up much in this book but you know everything has already been set in motion because of their chance meeting.

Ethan is HOT (I mentioned this earlier but its good to say it again) and he’s broody and kind of a jack ass but you can understand why. And seeing as he vowed never to have anything to do with Feary again, he sure risks his life for his half breed friend.

And MacKenzie St James, the female in the book, damn that girl is feisty! She was just kick-ass as any boys of her age, and also the girl who secretly melted Ethan’s heart. She much more than what is seems. She made me smile and made me cry at the same time, especially when we learn her story. She didn’t flinch to make deals with fairies; she didn’t back away from Ethan, even if she was gravely unwell to go on with him. She was fearless of any incoming danger.

And then Keirran, Ash and Meghan’s son…

I loved Ash in the Iron Fey books with a passion and it seems as though his son has definetly inherited his fighting skills. He is a mixture of both Meghan and Ash so its hard not to know who he is as soon as he is mentioned. Keirran is master extraordinary power; he can exert three kinds of magic, summer, winter and Iron. He played a major role in The Lost Prince, he accompanied Ethan and Kenzie into their quest and fought battles beside them. No wonder Puck mentions that Ethan and Keirran reminded him about a certain pair.

This book had everything, Power, Fights, Heartache and new love.

And the creepy Forgotten… EEEEEEEK!

The catalyst for what we saw in the The Iron’s Prphecy has definetly just started and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!!
