Review:The Lost Prince
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.
Julie Kagawa's new series definitely lived up to all of its hype. I literally heard about this book everywhere I would go. Everyone was praising it and reviewing it. It made me espicially happy that Julie finally got all the attenention she deserved.
First of all, I LOVED Ethan. I usually hate when guys pretend to be tough and cruel, but Ethan had a good reason to be a jerk. I absolutely understood why he had to push everyone away: there was no reason why he should set himself up for getting hurt. I felt for Ethan alot, in other words.
Second, Julie had another great plot! It was the perfect pace. I had my nose in the book all the time, excited to find out what happens next. I really doubted I would like this new series better than the iron fey series, but I might change my mind in the near future...
Finally, the ENDING or near ending was SO HEARTBREAKING! I could not believe it. I had to read the words twice just to make sure I was not hallucinating. I will not say anymore for I might spill some secrets.
This book was really great and I am going to look out for the second book for sure. I want to find out how Julie ends up weaving all these new things into the old ones!
