The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa - ADVISABLE

Kagawa, Julie The Lost Prince, 379 p. HarlequinTeen, 2012. Language: R (30+ swears, 0 ‘f’); Violence: PG (sword fighting, some blood); Mature Content: G.  

Ethan Chase is at another school – his last chance.  But no one understands Ethan’s tough guy stance is a consequence of being the human brother of the Iron Queen – the fey will not leave him alone.  When a half-human student asks for Ethan’s help and then disappears, Ethan knows he has to step in; he must ask his long-gone sister for help.  But Kenzie, a well-meaning but pesky school reporter gets dragged along and now Ethan has way too many people to protect. 

This episode of the Iron Fey is more complicated than the others, involving a nephew Ethan didn’t know he had and a new group of fey complete with their own queen.  Luscious, luscious fantasy!  The swear count is much higher this time around – I hope that isn’t Kagawa’s future trend.  But I can’t stay away from any more in the series to come.  Oh yes, there will be more!
