In the real world, when you vanish into thin air for a week, people tend to notice.

his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just
wants to get back to normal. Well, as “normal” as you can be when you
see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the
bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind
that he’s forbidden to see her again.

But when your name is
Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the
Nevernever, “normal” simply isn’t to be. For Ethan’s nephew, Keirran, is
missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the
name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and
faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the
Forgotten. As Ethan’s and Keirran’s fates entwine and Keirran slips
further into darkness, Ethan’s next choice may decide the fate of them

At first I thought I’ll get disappointed with this book but to tell you the truth if I liked The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1 entitled The Lost Prince, I liked this one better, oh wait! I meant I love this! This second book is more exciting and the adventures are more astonishing. More fighting scenes, and more heartbreaking moments. This book is more beguiling. The cover speaks for the whole book, so is the title. It is really, really cool! From the beginning to end it is captivating and poignant in a good way, it will attract you to read more and discover. The story is fun to read and you will react on those scenes that involves Keirran and Ethan. You will also learn here how important family was yet you’ll discover something more. Trust is a powerful tool but you’ll have to be careful. Friendships has limits too, they can betray you or stay beside you.
Ethan Chase got involved to another quest that involves the Fae world. Annwyl visited Ethan Chase in his house when Kenzie decided to come visit, Annwyl said that everyone is looking for Keirran. At the end of the day Ethan Chase decided to help Annwyl find Keirran. However when they are in search so many things happened and trouble are on their way. Fate is not being friendly to them and their adventure was about to save Annwyl, although she’s with them the truth is something’s bothering her, she only want to see Keirran for the last time and yet the prince refused to, he’s trying all the alternatives to spare the life of the girl he wants. So with the help of the two mortals (Ethan & Kenzie) they started the other part of the quest until Ethan found out about the premonition. 
There’s so many things I want to tell, I might end up revealing the whole story so I’ll stop now. This book is really interesting and that secret about the ‘premonition’ bothers me on the first book and this next book answered it. Things are really exciting here all the questions you have on the first book, the answer will be here. It gave me goosebumps! for real, I didn’t expect that and the ending is soooooooo unexpected!!! It was like my heart stops for a second because it’s appalling, though I already know but I still can’t believe it will really happen, and now I am yearning for the next book, I would not except that thing to happen. I can’t waaaaiiittt, when will it be out? someone answer me? (kidding).
Did I mention I love the cover? if I did, I’m saying it again coz it is really alluring! And, this is really a great book, fun and exciting to read!
My Rating
Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey
and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing
exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and
her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by
large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent
hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t
getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.

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, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and
was supposed to get a real job.

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 dogtrainer 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, two
obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own
good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon.
