In the real world, when you vanish into thin air for a week, people tend to notice.My thoughts:
After 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 all.
The book begins where the last one, The Lost Prince, ended. We are seeing Ethan trying to adjust to what has changed in his life, namely Kenzie. He is determined to be the person she sees in him. Of course with Kagawa you know that this won't last and there would be a reason for them to be pulled back in faerie. Again, it is Keirran who needs help and Ethan decides to be the one there for his nephew who is trying to change the fate of the one he loves. Nothing is easy and one bad decision leads to another and...
Yep, like that. This would upset me more if the adventure before that ending wasn't so good. I enjoyed the action, the interaction between characters and the romance of Ethan and Kenzie. I'm also glad there were brief appearances with other well known characters in this world and I hope there is more of that in the next book. Razor is in this one again too and I'm happy to be reunited with that little gremlin. As for what happens next? I don't know but I know I want to know now! I mean is it too hard to give us a 1000+ book once in a while? ;) Seriously, it's cruel to leave us hanging like that. :) Still, addicted as we are, we will wait and gobble up the next installment when it comes.
I give this book 4 stars and I'm guessing you now know I want the next one immediately. I'm sure it is only a guess... ;)
