In the real world, when you vanish into thin air for a week, people tend to notice.
After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as normal as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for; his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he's forbidden to see her again.
But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, normal simply isn't to be. For Ethan's nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan's and Keirran's fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan's next choice may decide the fate of them all.
The Iron Traitor is the second book of The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten series and I loved it!! This is the continuation of The Iron Prince so you must read that book to understand the story. Because of this my review is spoiler free.
What did I like about The Iron Traitor?
I loved everything about this book!
Ethan Chase has become my favorite YA guy! He’s still the tough guy that wants to keep everyone at a distance but he is slowly opening up to people. He knows he should stay away from the NeverNever since the Fey have brought him nothing but trouble. But he follows his heart and does anything he can to help the ones he cares about. He is a true hero! Keeping Ethan in check is Mackenzie who continues to be brave despite her own problems. She and Ethan make a great team and couple. Lastly there is Keran who is willing to do anything for love. He makes some disappointing choices but I’m hoping he redeems himself in the next book.
The Iron Traitor picks up where the last book left off and jumps back into the action and story. Julie Kagawa created an exciting fantasy that was vivid and I was drawn in from the beginning. The story has the right balance of action, young love and conflict to keep the reader entertained and intrigued. There are surprising twists and the cliffhanger ending has me wanting more! The Iron Traitor was released in 2013 but I am so glad I read this now. I would have hated to wait so long for the 3rd book, which releases in October 2015.
This is only my second book to read from Julie Kagawa and I absolutely love her writing. She has created a fantasy world with the right amount of details to clearly imagine it without being confused. The story flows smoothly and the characters are so well developed you will love the heroes and hate the villains. And the action scenes are so exciting you won’t be able to put the book down. I highly recommend this series to fans of adventure and fantasy.
This book meets the COYER Summer Scavenger Hunt #53, a book with just half a face on the cover.
