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.

The Iron Traitor is the 7th book of The Iron Fey series and the 2nd book of the spin-off series, Call of The Forgotten.

Julie Kagawa has done it again! She played with my feelings again! This sequel made me sad, happy, excited, angry, frustrated, shocked, in love, and everything. Well, talk about mixed emotions?

I totally liked this moooore than The Lost Prince. I see how a lot of the characters have developed. Also more new characters were introduced, plot twists!

After all the hullabaloos in The Lost Prince, we now came into the The Iron Traitor where it revolves around the hunt for the cure to Annwyl’s inevitable fading. Keirran has gone missing looking for a solution. So Ethan and company has to find him, because Ethan just can’t leave his nephew alone. And god knows what recklessness Keirran would do.

In faery world, one does not simply make bargains and promises. Since faeries can’t lie, they twist words, and some, if not most, are very conniving when making bargains. So, knowing how Keirran would want to risk everything for Annwyl, Ethan and the gang became very anxious on what he might do. Keirran is a big trouble. All those mixed powers from the three courts and partly being a human have gone through his nervous system. Go figure.

AND that’s what made this book so much more exciting! The gang searching for Keirran ended up joining him on his quest. Ha! Adventure, adventure! More enemies! More fighting! And then the forgotten queen joined!

Well, it’s actually obvious isn’t it? I mean, “the iron traitor”? The title and the cover are way too obvious! So I need not to guess on that, but whatever happened why the “traitor” is pretty…

AND THE ENDING??? Good lord! This is the kind of CLIFFHANGER that totally makes me so mad! WHY? I still have to wait until October this year for the next and last book and it’s now driving me crazy!

Julie Kagawa’s incredible fantasy writing skills will never ever fail to amuse me! I really can’t wait for the last book, the end of the Iron Fey.*cries like a maniac*  You evil authors! But, I’m pretty serious, The Iron Warrior, just come to me already!
