Summary from Goodreads:
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

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’s 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 myths and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

My name is Ethan Chase. And I may not live to see my eighteenth birthday.

My Thoughts:

I probably should have thought this one through more. I started on the Iron Fey series by this same author and while the first book was ok, I just couldn’t get into any of the other ones, so they sit upon my shelves collecting dust.
I struggled to get past the first part of this book, and it took me over a week to get up to page 207. The story is a good one and the writing is superb, apparently I just can’t read books about the Fey, as they don’t interest me. I guess my main problem was that even though the writing was amazing, I just really felt no connection to any of the characters. I couldn’t put myself in their lives and see me doing any of the things they did. Ethan was a strong male lead and Kenzie makes the perfect female character, afraid but strong willed and doesn’t really show that she can’t handle what is going on. The Fey in the book, was mostly what I had previously read about in other books, goblins, gremlins, and the like; though there was the introduction of the new smokey/shadowy fey.
I feel that I may be burnt out on Fey books for now and will try to come back to this and the Iron Fey series at a later date.
