The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

The Lost Prince is the first book in the Call of the Forgotten series. It is told from Ethan Chase's point of view, the younger brother of the protagonist in the previous series, Meghan Chase. The book starts out kinda dull, but gets to the point quickly. It takes place roughly thirteen years after the previous series and so the former characters don't appear as much. Let me tell you, every time Meghan, Ash, Puck, and Grimalkin appear, I squeal with joy.

A note of warning, if you have read The Iron Legends, the book will be semi dull. I read it beforehand and now know what the plot of the series is leading up to. The characters are in the dark, but the reader will know exactly where everyone's going. Julie Kagawa could have planned it better.

The book felt slow to me partially because the plot isn't laid out the same as earlier books. With the first series, there's action and forbidden romance at every turn. There's romance, but it doesn't really GET me as it did in previous books. When one of the characters is introduced, I squealed, but then got bored when he didn't amount to much even though he's a main character. I give it four stars.

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's dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world-the land of the 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 doubt I'll live to see my eighteenth birthday."
