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.
Review:It is not a secret that Julie Kagawa's stories are my favorite,especially if they are about Nevernever.Every time i start a new book written by her i expect the best,and until now i can say that i was never dissapointed,cause that it's impossible.
Once again Ethan Chase tries to stay away from everything that has to do with faeries,but that is impossible,since he has the Sight and his sister is a part of that world.This time Ethan knows that he can't go back to his normal life,not after he disspeared in Nevernever with Kenzie..This time Ethan has to do something to help his nephew,the Iron Prince,to do something nearly impossible.What will Ethan do?Help Keirran with his impossible task or stay away from the faeries?
First i admit that i was really excited when i started the book.That was because once again i could read about my favorite characters and story,something that i want to do all the time.
Yes,i love the Iron Fey series and i wish that this series will never end.Pretty please?
Honestly,this book was really good.Between Ethan desire to stay away from the faeries and the fact that he finally accepted the thought that he and Kenzie were together,his nephew went missing.The Iron Prince ran away and his parents were looking for him everywhere.
I liked Keirran,i admit that he was fun and interesting,but at some point i kind of wanted him to just go home back in Nevernever and to stop puting Ethan in danger.Gah!Well,that didn't happen,so i guess i just have to accept that.His task?That was impossible,but he was trying so hard to save Annwyl and it was amazing his desire to save her ,even if that meant to sacrifice himself.Ugh,i can't hate him.He made some mistakes,huge mistakes,but in the end that happened and i can't ignore them.
Ethan?Well,he was a though guy who was maddly in love with a girl(something he didn't realize at first) and who was trying to do something good for his sister and nephew.His intentions were good ,but what happened at the end of the book?That.Was.Not.What.It.Was.Supposed.To.Happen.Not after all he's been through.Not after all he did for Keirran.Nope.But it happend and i was speechless.Betrayal.I really,really don't like that.And i really,really want the next book!
And Kenzie..Good god,that girl was really stubborn,but that was what i liked the most about her.She didn't give up on Ethan and she didn't let him stop her going with him.
Honestly,even if the end left me speechless,i wouldn't change a thing from this book.Everything happened for a reason,and it was amazing,even if a few times i didn't like what happened.That is something normal.
The Forgotten-i still can't get used to them.They are really strange,or maybe it is just me who thinks that.
And the whole thing with the prophecy?I swear i didn't expect this.It wasn't fair and i can't wait to read more.I'm curious and i hope that i can wait until the next book will come out.
Grimalkin,Puck,Ash and Meghan-I missed those characters and i'm really happy that i could read about them again,even if it was just a little.
All i want to add is that you have to read this,but first if you didn't read The Iron Fey series(the beginning of everything) you have to do that first,and then The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten.You won't regret it.
