More About the Author
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time (okay, at least the illustrations did), but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full time.
Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, an obnoxious cat, an Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and a hyper-active Papillion.

Hmmm...I was super excited to hear that Ms. Kagawa was going to continue the Iron Fey series but have Ethan as the MC this time around. I was especially happy when the publisher through NetGalley approved me for an early copy. Thank you HarlequinTeen and NetGalley!
I loved seeing my favorite characters, Grimalkin and Puck, along with Meghan, Ash, and Razor, come together again for another fun dangerous adventure. The action is truly non-stop while keeping you guessing as to who is behind everything...and who is who.
Ethan was an interesting MC. I found myself struggling to relate to him and understand his point of view. I understood his prejudice towards the Fey to some extent but his anger with Meghan seemed a bit extreme and unfounded...but thats how emotions usually are- no real good reason for why we feel the way we do. It surprised me how much he knew about the Fey and Nevernever...he was 4 when he was kidnapped and was in captivity the whole time so his recognition of certain places in the Nevernever had me looking back at Iron King. I sorta missed the scared and adorable little Ethan who loved his sister dearly. However, everyone has to grow up sometime(well, everyone but Puck) and Ethan is definitely not little. He has grown strong and able to hold his own ^.^ so go Ethan!
New characters involve Meghan and Ash' son, Kierran, and the new girl, Mackenzie. If you read Iron Knight, you got a glimpse of how baaaaaad Kierran can be and I LOVE it! His sly self shows up from time-to-time but also manages to be a complete gentleman; the best of both his parents! Kenzie is a tough girl who doesn't wallow in self-pity even though she's thrown into the unknown with no answers to when she will get home...or if.Read more ›
In The Lost Prince the story moves to Ethan Chase, Meghan's brother who is gifted with the ability to see the world of the fey. And he is no longer the cute little boy for whom Meghan was willing to brave the Nevernever in order to save in the first book of the Iron Fey series. Now he is a teenager with a surly attitude and a reputation as a problem child. He is angry almost all the time, and he does whatever he can to keep the world around him from getting too close. He avoids all emotional intimacy because he does not want to bring the chaos of the fey world into someone else's life. In short, he is not a very nice boy. Luckily this story is told from his point of view, so as a reader I was able to see the conflict within him. I could see that he wished that he didn't have to be so angry and mean all the time, but the fey really didn't give him much of a choice. This allowed me to read his grumpiness without getting overly annoyed with him as a character. Instead I rooted for him to find a way to navigate this crazy world. I wanted for him to find someone who could break through his defenses and be his friend.
The answer to my wishes came in the person of Kenzie, a classmate who wouldn't allow him to push her away. She was persistent and insisted that Ethan talk to her. She wasn't fazed by his attitude or mean comments. She came back to him again and again, and despite all of his efforts to keep her away from the fey, circumstances occurred that brought her into Ethan's crazy world.Read more ›
I hate to type this but I was a little bit let down with The Lost Prince. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it and will continue to be an avid reader of anything Julie Kagawa writes, but I expected more. I didn't fall completely. That said, I think this is an excellent start and cannot wait to see where things go from here.
You have to go into this book with an open mind. New characters. It's told from Ethan's point of view, and as a main character I liked him well enough, but I didn't love him. I had high hopes that the other characters would fill the void of missing Ash, Puck and Meghan. Unfortunately I wasn't taken. Ethan's love interest Kenzie was likable enough, but I didn't get that heat, that fire, that spark. Also, Ethan's inner dialogue regarding Kenzie got on my nerves a bit and found these particular passages to be a bit draggy. There was a lack of passion for me.
Speaking of characters, there are glimpses of some old favorites. It was just enough of a taste to make me crazy with wanting more. The character I ended up connecting with the most was that of Kierran. I'm not going to go into details about him as not to give any spoilers, but I felt this book was as much about him, if not more, than that of Ethan.Read more ›
