He's the Brooding Not So Bad Bad Boy

The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

Summary: 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'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.

Review: Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

An intriguing faerie realm with a brooding main male character and an annoying female main character. 
I really do like the world that Kagawa has created. I like the idea that faeries are created because we dream them into being. As much as I like traditional faeries, the idea of the Iron Fey makes sense since the world has changed so drastically. I initially really liked Ethan at first, but as he continued to make stupid mistakes and continued to do all the things he said he wouldn't do, I grew to dislike him. I also found Kenzie very annoying. Yes, it's always such a great idea to keep pestering the guy that is being a jerk to you. 

I personally felt that females only existed in this book to be protected and didn't serve any purpose except to be loved. They were always being pushed behind the men. I also didn't need to be reminded how slim and delicate Kenzie was. I'm pretty tiny myself, but I would put myself between danger and my large, tall husband in a heartbeat. I might read the second book to find out more about the Forgotten fey since they were what I really enjoyed in this book. 


Recommendation: I would recommend this book to those who the enjoy the Iron Fey series or young adult faerie series.
