I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.

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

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.
I'll be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with the Call of the Forgotten series after The Lost Prince, but I am so glad that I decided to read The Iron Traitor. It was so, so good and I can not wait until next year when the next book comes out.

Poor Ethan. Always trying to be good and always trying to stay away from Them. But as usual, he keeps getting dragged into fairy world problems. This time around it has to do with his nephew, Keirran. Nobody can find him and they are all afraid for his safety. Ethan, being the good person that he is wants to help his nephew no matter what the consequences may be.

One of the problems I had with The Lost Prince was I wanted Meghan to talk to Ethan about why she stayed away. While that conversation hasn't happened you start to figure out why and you understand why Meghan did what she did.

Ethan and Kenzie are so sweet and cute together. Especially in school where he doesn't show how truly wonderful he is and acts like the tough guy he pretends to be, while she is bubbly and popular. So cute! I really love the two of them together.

The Iron Traitor ends on the worst cliffhanger known to man and I am so interested and excited to see how Julie Kagawa is going to get everyone out of this one! 


  1. I agree with you. I enjoyed this book more than the first one so I'm glad I read it. The cliffhanger ending is AWFUL and mean! It will be such a long wait for the next book...

  2. I'm glad you liked this! I'm such a big fan of Julie Kagawa but I'm waiting for the trilogy to be published entirely before I start reading it. So happy! Great review!
