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. (Taken from Goodreads)
Thoughts: As someone who really loves Julie Kagawa’s writing I was super ecstatic to start this one. Right off the bat, I’m just going to say oh my goodness what on earth happened to the sweet little Ethan we knew and loved in the Iron Fey series! He’s grown up and he was so different to how I thought he would be but it was definitely interesting.
The story took me a little bit to get into but once the ball got rolling it kept getting bigger and I was flying through the pages. The story line is so good and it’s really different from the iron fey series which I thought was really good.
The supporting characters Kenzie and Keirran were just as awesome as Ethan and they made the story as entertaining as it could be. Then of course, there were a bunch of my old favourites who I absolutely loved to see. My two favourites Ash and Grim made appearances and I won’t say to what extent but they were there.
Overall, The Lost Prince was a great start to what I hope will be a fantastic series and I am eagerly anticipating the release of the second book.
