From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Ethan Chase, 18, tells people that his older half sister, Meghan, is dead, but she's not. She left his family to live in Nevernever, the land of the faeries, as the Iron Queen, after the adventures related in Kagawa's first "Iron Fey" series (Harlequin Teen). This first volume in a follow-up series begins as Ethan's reputation as a troublemaker follows him to a new high school, where he saves a half-faery fellow student from bullies and finds himself facing new dangers. Ethan's magical Sight allows him to see the many fey creatures that surround him, but it also lets him see the creatures that drain faery magic. Joined by his friend Kenzie, Ethan travels to Nevernever to warn the fey of the danger they face. With new allies, they return home to confront the danger that threatens their friends, leading to an action-packed magical confrontation. Ethan's character stands out due to his negative attitude toward magic, his martial-arts skills, and his determination that not making friends is the best way to keep others around him safe. Kagawa allows the relationship between Ethan and Kenzie to develop slowly and realistically, revealing details about their pasts as the story progresses and creating a strong appeal to readers of both genders. Fans of the first "Iron Fey" series will be interested in seeing Meghan and her family again, while new readers will find enough detail to help them jump right in and enjoy the magic, adventure, and touch of romance.-Beth L.

From Booklist

Kagawa’s strong world building and character development—of both fey and humans—continues to abound as she opens a new cycle of her best-selling series The Iron Fey. As Ethan, 17, starts yet another new school, he is followed by rumors about his violent past. He is bitter about his abilities to see fey and sense the impending calamities they may be planning for the human world, but he grudgingly befriends Todd, a half-breed boy, as well as Kenzie, a fully human girl. When Todd disappears from his human home, Kenzie insists on accompanying Ethan in his search for his elder sister, the Iron Queen. Kagawa cleverly balances Ethan’s complex emotional life, the humorous antics of misbehaving gremlins, Kenzie’s jocular but authentic bravery, and the frightening powers held by historic fey. Readers new to this fantasy world will have no trouble becoming absorbed, while those who have read the four novels of The Iron Fey will be delighted to start in on this companion series, Call of the Forgotten. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With volumes in the New York Times best-selling Iron Fey series continuing to draw new fans, this companion series is sure to spark wide interest. Grades 8-12. --Francisca Goldsmith

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.

I am a huge fan of Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, but I had thought that I had said goodbye to that world after The Iron Knight was published. It was a wonderful surprise for me to find that Julie was doing a spinoff series, and I could not wait to read this new addition to the world of the fey.

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.

The first question possible readers might have is: Do you have to read the Iron Fey series (The Iron King, The Iron Queen, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Knight) first? My answer is this: I don't think one will have a complete appreciation for this book, for this story, for this world without reading the others first. You won't have the background or back story and you won't have already established your love and connection to the world of Nevernever and some of its previous characters.

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.
