First I want to thank everyone for the their prayers and just general comments on my Hello All post! It was a tough two weeks having to go to my first wake and funeral,, but my family and I got through it and we have lots of memories of my grandfather to keep us going.... So I'm back and I've missed blogging.I have lots of reviews coming up because I read a lot because it helped me process my thoughts.

Also Hello to all of my new followers!!!  I still can't can't believe that people actually read my reviews. It's mind blowing!!!

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.

First Thoughts 

The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa is the first book in the new Iron Fey series, and also the first book by this author that I've had the pleasure of reading. Although this can be read as a stand-a-lone book I highly recommend that you read the previous series. There're some things that can be answered easier that way. Plus if you read the previous series you will have a better understanding of certain characters, that pop up in this book, that were a part of the earlier novels. Even though I fell in love with this book and all of its character’s I really wish I had read the Iron fey series first.

My thoughts
Ok so what first caught my eye was the cover. I knew without reading this book that I would enjoy it because I’m a cover whore. I could look at tis cover for ages and never get tired of it. I mean if you were walking into a book store and you saw this book you would stop and look at it, and then you would read the synopsis, and then buy it!!

Also since this is my first Julie Kagawa book I didn't know what to expect, I mean you can read reviews all day but once you read a book all thoughts, and opinions are your own. So yes people told me that Julie Kagawa was an amazing author but I had to form my own view, and I was not disappointed. I ABSOLUTELY loved the writing. Everything flowed well together, the pace was perfect, and the plot was great.

Now on to the characters!! Ethan, whom I decided is my new book boyfriend of the week, was a great character. He was complex and I was completely intrigued by him. He was all gloomy, and emo that I just wanted to love him. He doesn’t want to get close to anyone. He has the gift/curse of SIGHT. He wants nothing to do with the Fey (THEM) world but a certain situations brings him right back in.

Now on to Kenzie, she is one of those characters’ that I feel can fit into three categories. You either love her because you feel she is fearless and head-strong, or you hate her because she doesn’t think, acts, first, and is super nosy, or you share my feelings; Which is the fact that she is all those things and with time she kind of grows on you.

Keirran's character I feel we didn’t see much of him come through in this book but I look forward to a lot from him in the next one. I also loved Grim and the rest of the supporting cast.

Overall, I can definitely say that I have been converted into a Julie Kagawa fan and will now be spreading her praises to fellow YA readers. She blends just the right amount of romance, action, comedy, and twist and turns to leave you wanting to more and deliver an amazing story.
