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.

The Lost Prince is the first book I read from Julie Kagawa and I am so mad at myself for waiting! I loved this book! This book is a spinoff of The Iron Fey series and I found it easy to follow the story. It does reunite characters from the series but the author gives enough of their background to understand who they are. But now that I’ve met them I plan to start from the beginning. The Lost Prince is an exciting fantasy story that jumps into the action in a fast pace. Ethan Chase is Megan’s (the Iron Queen) younger brother. He’s been living with the ability to see the Fae but he has been trying to keep this secret. Unfortunately the Fae has caused him problems. The trouble with the Fae has earned Ethan a bad boy reputation and expulsion from numerous schools. As he starts another new school Ethan hopes it will be a chance for a fresh start. Unfortunately trouble begins on the first day. Strange & dangerous events happen so Ethan is left with no other choice but to enter the Fae world to seek his sister’s help. Thus begins an exciting adventure filled with danger & mysterious characters. This was amazing!! Ethan is a great character to cheer on. Even though he is dealing with all the trouble in his life he doesn’t act like a spoiled and careless guy. He is upset with his sister but he still cares for her. And when all hell breaks loose he doesn’t turn away from helping out. I was excited that this character studied the Filipino martial arts of Kali, which provided focus and self-discipline for Ethan. This skill also came in handy during his dangerous journey. As a Filipino I really appreciated that the author added diversity to her story. I wish more authors would do this to add uniqueness to their story and introduce a new culture to readers.
I love author Julie Kagawa’s creativity and everything was perfect – the story, the characters and the world building. This is a must read for all fantasy fans! I can’t wait to read more from this author.
