Book Review: The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa
Author: Julie Kagawa
Release Date: 23rd October 2012
Published By: Harlequin Teen Australia
Editon: ARC from Publisher
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 Rating: 5 Nevernever Sassy Stars
My Review: First I'd like to thank Harlequin Teen Australia & NetGalley for sending me a copy in return for an honest review.
Opening my package and holding it in my hands, that's all it took and I was bouncing around in my chair ready for a new adventure. O.M.G it was so, so good to be back in the Nevernever. Being a huge Iron Fey fan I've been absolutely dying to read this since Julie announced it.
I have to admit though it was a little strange reading from Ethan's POV, but after a few pages that feeling disappeared. Ethan's all grown up and now fighting his own battles with the fey, he's turned into one strong, couragious, hunky guy! ;-)
Each letter, every word was written with pure magic, from the very first sentence "My name is Ethan Chase. And I doubt I'll live to see my eighteenth birthday." We meet all the new characters, (one in particular I was excited to meet) also have a few pop ins from our old favourites. We're thrown into chaio's, non stop surprises around every corner. I was absolutely absorbed in this story, I swear my ears have grown half an inch LOL! ;-)
Julie Kagawa has given us another heart pounding fantasy adventure and I for one can't WAIT for book 2 The Traitor Son coming in 2013.
Here's a quote from the book..
"The Nevernever," she murmured, almost to herself. "I'm in the Nevernever. I'm in the freaking Nevernever."
Haha! I think we all feel like this with each iron fey book we read. ;-)
If you haven't read any of The Iron Fey books yet, I recommend you check them out they are MUST READS!!!
I can't say anymore otherwise I'll give too much away. ;-)
