Goodreads Description:

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.

I'm honestly at a loss as to why it took me so long to start the spin off series to The Iron Fey when I loved the original so much! I finally got to it and was pleased to find that I enjoyed the spin off as much as the original. While I didn't love it quite as much as The Iron Queen (my favorite of the series), I do think The Lost Prince is an excellent start to the series and I think my love for the series will grow stronger with each installment. 

Having Ethan as the narrator did take a bit of getting use to. He was very different from Meghan. Of course that would be expected considering Ethan is a guy. It was interesting to see how Ethan had changed and the kind of person he had become. Ethan was still a kid when we last saw him but in The Lost Prince he's no kid anymore. Ethan resents the fey (not that anyone can blame him) and tries his best to avoid them and trouble but trouble definitely finds him. After getting to know Ethan I liked him. Sometimes I thought he tried a little too hard to be mister rough and tough but at heart you could tell he was a good guy. 

I loved Kenzie! I thought she was fabulous! She was smart, independent and didn't take no crap from anyone. I loved how tough and smart she was. She had no problem putting Ethan in his place. Kierran was an interesting character to get to know. If you have already read, The Iron Prophecy then you know who he is (which I had and did). If not, I am sure it will be even more interesting in suspenseful to figure it out! Still, I think having read The Iron Prophecy offers it's own level of suspense becuase you know the big secret that Ethan doesn't know and you have to wonder how everything happens and why it would happen. 

The plot of The Lost Prince was fast paced like the other Iron Fey books. There was not a dull second. I am curious to see how everything ties in and plays out. I loved the cameo appearances from Meghan, Puck, Ash, and Grim. Their appearances were brief but I loved every word of them! I am hoping that they will possibly have a slightly larger part in the upcoming books. I just can't let those guys go!

Overall, I really enjoyed The Lost Prince and am eager to read the next book in the series! Fans of the Iron Fey are sure to enjoy The Iron Prince, Call of the Forgotten!
