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.
My name is Ethan Chase.
And I may not live to see my eighteenth birthday.
Hello my loves, I can't even begin to explain how much I loved this story.  Julie writes in such a way that once you start reading you don't want to put it down.  I really enjoy this series I hadn't gone into the series because I didn't have the other books on my shelves, except the second one. I wanted to be able to move through all three books very quickly.

Having read this one, I can't tell you how glad I was to have all three.  Julie took us back into Iron Fey world where we got to see Meghan the Iron Queen again, and OMG her world has changed and poor Ethan is once again pulled back into the world of the Fey and nothing, absolutely nothing is going the way he needs it to.

From the get go this story moved really quickly each and every single scene bringing something new and wild and fun.  Poor Ethan found himself running back and forth between in the worlds.  As the story unfolds I found myself remembering snippets from the other books and falling back in the love with the characters.  I didn't put this book down at all, it was amazingly good and I quickly finished it so I could jump into the second one.

When I say the action unfolds quickly I mean really quickly and as much as I would like to say it, this books isn't for someone who hasn't read the series and knows the kind of background facts you would need to make this a rich and encompassing tale.  While Julie does summarize a little bit and give glimpse of the past, as much as Ethan thinks he knows he doesn't know everything and his shadowed and one sided perspective makes him miss the true importance of certain actions, conversations and people.  It doesn't take away from the story but this is definitely a must read in series order book.  I loved seeing old characters, catching up with Ethan, meeting new characters and reading as the prophecy began to unfold.  I found myself quickly reading so I could know what happens and  I loved reading so I could react to the different scenes.

There are moments within the story that make me want to yell at certain characters, I wanted to ask some of them if they had brains, I side-eyed the hell out of others, and I called B.S on more than one occasion.  Ethan had issues with the Fey and I get why he's so angry but man he's beyond short sighted and extremely prejudiced.  I kept having to remind myself that he's a kid who has living through a tragedy that changed his life and his family forever and he gets to be angry.  However his anger at time was so silly, especially when it meant he missed out on getting help he really needed.

I highly recommend the series and the ones before this including The Iron Fey: The Iron Queen, The Iron King, The Iron Daughter  and the Iron Knight. Oh man so much unfolds due to the events from The Iron Knight and that's pretty much where this sub series kicks off.  If you love the Fey, witty characters, fun and adventures and of course our favorite mischievous character, then this series is for you.
 I hope you love this as much as I do, It was a fun and adventurous read.  Happy Reading
