Publisher's 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.

Great turn on perspective, gets a little dark

What did you like best about The Lost Prince? What did you like least?

I like the fact that we get the human perspective in this book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending is dark and foreboding. Wish there was more time with the lead after the final show down.

What about Jake Lewis’s performance did you like?

Loved Jake's performance. I didn't notice the performance so much as I believed I was listening to the characters.

Any additional comments?

Great characters in this one. Love the view into the fey in our realm.

Really enjoyed this, but where is the next book?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. As a matter of fact, I have.....the whole Iron Fey series as well as this new spin-off.

What other book might you compare The Lost Prince to and why?

I suppose the obvious would be Shakespeare's. Midsummer Night's Dream, although that is technically a play.

Which character – as performed by Jake Lewis – was your favorite?

Razor! He is so darn cute & Jake's narration just made him even more adorable!

Any additional comments?

First, let me ask - Where is the next book & why doesn't Audible have it already?! It makes zero sense to have the whole series & this new spin-off and not have the newest book, IRON TRAITOR. Very upset about this!


Ok, now that I have said my peace about that, let's move on. I really enjoyed this new spin-off! So glad to have all my favorite characters back and excited to see where things will go with Kierran (Meghan & Ash's son). While I absolutely enjoyed this book from beginning to end, I do think Ethan was just a bit too angsty for my tastes, but it seems like he grew quite a bit by the end of this book, so I'm hoping this is the last we'll hear of his brooding. :-) I think the narrator was quite good, though his mispronounciaton of Leanansidhe was a bit frustrating, especially since she is one of my favorite characters. LOVE her! Also, I wasn't crazy about his voice for Grimalkin either (I prefer Kristine Hvam's version of everyone's favorite kitty). Other than that though, I think he did the book justice. I am really excited to find out what will happen next. Over all, I would give this audiobook a B+. So Audible, when are you going to give us the next one? The paperback has been out for a year now. What's the hold up??

Disappointing

What did you like best about The Lost Prince? What did you like least?

I liked hearing about Ethan's life after Meggie left for the Nevernever. However, I thought the author was rushed in writing this book. I love, love, love the Iron Fey series. This book did not have the depth of character that the other books had. I was very disappointed in it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was terrible. He mispronounced words and names and he was not able to change his voice enough to distinguish between the characters. Very disappointing performance. It appears he had not listened to any of the Iron Fey series - which would have been very helpful for him.

If familiar with series, a great continuation of the story. Good as a stand-alone, too.

Great Story, but...

I love Julie Kagawa as an author and her stories are excellent at transporting your mind to the story. The performance is excellent but the name pronunciation for anything Fae is nowhere near what it is supposed to be. If that is an issue for you then the performance will be excellent mixed with nails on a chalk board sprinkled in occasionally. I am trying really hard to overlook the pronunciation issue because it can be enthralling most of the time.
