"The Lost Prince" by Julie Kagawa
NOTE: I received this book from Netgalley and MiraINK in exchange for my honest review. Thanks!
The last book I read of the Iron Fey series, The Iron Knight, was a huge (and I can't stress enough how huge that is) a disappointment. Until that book I'd loved Ash and Puck and Meghan. The Iron Knight made me dislike them.
So, when I requested The Lost Prince, I was a little biased. I wondered whether it would be more like the first three books, or like the fourth one. Turns out it was different from both.
In fact, it was so different that I was pleasantly stunned! I totally loved Ethan's voice! His brooding, cranky behavior. His courage, his boldness, his reservation. He was just the perfect boy - not bad, but not all that good either.
In other words, The Lost Prince was just the right dose of thrill, romance and paranormality that I'd needed at the time. Hence my rating.
The story was pretty original, fey wise; the characters were lovable, and I can safely say that I enjoyed it very much.
Kenzie was my favorite character of the lot. She was so sweet and adorable. I sensed something was the matter with her, but only when she told her story did I realize exactly what it was. And yet she was brave about it, which made her enter my heart in deep.
So, whatever you thought of the previous Iron Fey books, whether you liked them or not, that shouldn't take a toll on you acquiring The Lost Prince. It was an amazing book! You should definitely read it!
