Overview


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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Readers won't want it to end." -Kirkus Reviews
VOYA - Katie Sadowski
The sixth book in the Iron Fey series, this is also the second book in the Call of the Forgotten arc. Meghan's brother, Ethan, and Mackenzie have just returned from the world of the fey, the Nevernever, and must face their parents after disappearing for a week. Forbidden to see each other, they ignore their families' wishes and run off to save their friend, Annwyl, from fading away. Meghan's son and Annwyl's boyfriend, Keirran, joins them and rushes them straight into bad situation after bad situation, eventually pitting nephew against uncle. Despite falling right in the middle of a series (yes, there is a major cliff-hanger, and the next book is announced), Iron Traitor seamlessly brings the reader into the world of the Iron Fey. A reader could choose to start the series with this book, but it certainly will not be the last they read. Kagawa does an excellent job explaining the previous story to a new reader while instilling genuine connections to the main characters. Full of romance and action, this is a sure bet for any collection and part of a popular series too. Reviewer: Katie Sadowski

Gr 8 Up—Try as he might, Ethan Chase cannot escape the Fey. They kidnapped him as a child and now, at 18, he has been pulled back into the Nevernever, a realm he hoped never to see again. His previously unknown half-fey nephew has disappeared, and Ethan may be the only one who can locate him. Unaware of the prophecy foretelling his death at Kierran's hands (which is why his sister tried to keep the two apart), Ethan agrees to help Kierran find a way to save his love, Annwyl, from fading out of existence. When forays into dark magic fail to do anything more than prolong Annwyl's fate, their quest leads them deep into the Summer and Winter realms on an adventure that could mean death for them both. Once again, Kagawa utilizes forbidden love to drive her heroes into dangerous and unfamiliar territory. With Ethan's prophesied death looming over the story, readers will find themselves continuously on the edges of their seats. "Iron Fey" fans will revel in the reappearance of familiar characters and new readers will be drawn deep into a new and dangerous world. The final pages will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the next volume. Recommended for libraries owning previous titles in the series.—Jessica Miller, West Springfield Public Library, MA

Just when Ethan Chase thinks he's done with Faery, he's pulled back in. Fresh from his adventures in The Lost Prince (2012), Ethan thinks his biggest concern is his new girlfriend Kenzie's father, who reasonably objects to his leukemia-stricken teenage daughter disappearing and running off to New York with Ethan. But then Ethan's half sister, Meghan, the Iron Queen, comes to him because her son (Ethan's nephew), Keirran, has gone missing. Soon after, Keirran's beloved, the exiled Summer fey Annwyl, seeks Ethan's help--she too can't find Keirran, and as the Fade is quickly claiming her, she wishes to see him once more before dying. The search for Keirran brings Annwyl and Ethan, who's trying unsuccessfully to protect Kenzie from the fey world (a forced, predictable moment), to the New Orleans goblin market and right into the thick of things. The plot picks up, sweeping the heroes through temporary, dark-magic solutions, various otherworlds and encounters with familiar characters. Ethan and Keirran face parallel romantic storylines, each in love with someone facing imminent death, though Keirran's takes center stage as they struggle to save Annwyl. Additionally, a prophecy that's been hinted at finally comes into play at the climax, bringing major implications for characters and worlds alike--a major cliffhanger. A little slow to start, but once it does, readers won't want it to end. (Fantasy. 12-15)

Read an Excerpt

My name is Ethan Chase.

Just shy of a week ago, I was dragged into Faeryland. Again.

The first time it happened, I was four. Yeah, four years old, kidnapped by faeries and taken into the Nevernever, home of the fey. Long story short, my older sister rescued me and brought me home, but became a faery queen herself and now rules a part of the Nevernever called the Iron Realm.

Thirteen years later, despite all the precautions I took against the Fair Folk, it happened again. I found myself smack-dab in the middle of the Nevernever, and this time, I wasn't alone. A classmate of mine, a girl named Mackenzie St. James, managed to get pulled in, as well. A lot of weird, screwed-up stuff happened in the next few days, like following a talking cat through the Nevernever, meeting my sister in the Iron Realm, sneaking out of the Iron Realm to meet up with the Queen of the Exiles and, oh yeah, discovering that my sister has a son. That's right, I have a nephew. A nephew who is part fey, completely unknown to my parents, and who, by way of screwy faery time, is the same age as me.

There is one other important thing we discovered—the emergence of a new, deadly species of fey called the Forgotten, faeries that almost don't exist anymore because they've been unremembered for so long. Faeries that have to steal the glamour from regular fey to survive, killing them in the process. But for me, the nephew thing sort of stands out. If I thought my family was weird before, it's not even a blip on the weirdness scale now. I thought I'd seen it all. But when I got pulled into the Nevernever, the thing I never saw coming was Keirran.

When Keirran went back into the Nevernever, I knew I hadn't seen the last of him. Still, I had no idea how entangled my life would soon become with his, and how he would be the catalyst…for the end of everything.

Sometimes I wished everyone paid less attention to me. Sometimes I even wished I had faery blood, so that when the really weird things started happening around me, people would forget they'd seen it as soon as I left. That worked for Robin Goodfellow, the most infamous faery in existence. And to a lesser extent, it even worked for my sister. But in the real world, if you're fully human and you vanish into thin air for nearly a week, people tend to notice. If you vanish at the same time as a very rich, popular classmate, they notice even more.

Which was why, I supposed, I was back in the principal's office the Monday after I returned from the Nevernever. Only this time, there were two policemen in the room as well, looming over my chair and looking stern. Kids passing by peered through the door's window and gaped at me before hurrying off with their friends, whispering. Great. I already had a reputation for being a delinquent and a troublemaker; this probably wasn't going to help.

"Do you know why we've brought you here, Mr. Chase?" the principal said, pursing his thin mouth. I shrugged. I'd been in this office on my first day of school and knew the principal thought I was a lost cause. No point in trying to change his mind. Besides, the two officers were far more worrisome.

"We'd like to ask you a few questions about Todd Wynd-ham," one of the policemen stated, making my stomach twist. "As you may know, he disappeared last Friday, and his mother filed a missing-persons report when he didn't return from school. According to her, the last person to speak to him before he vanished…was you."

I swallowed. Todd Wyndham was a classmate of mine, and I knew exactly what had happened to him that night. But there was no way I was going to tell the police officers that Todd was part fey, a half-breed who had been kidnapped by the Forgotten and drained of his glamour. Problem was, draining his glamour had also robbed him of his memories, his emotions and his sense of self. By the time Kenzie and I had found him, his magic was already gone, leaving him dazed, passive and completely human.

Keeping my voice steady, I faced the officer who had spoken. "Yeah, I saw him at school that day. Everyone did. What's the big deal?"

"The big deal," the officer continued, frowning harder, "is that Todd Wyndham showed up at his home last week completely shell-shocked. He doesn't remember much, but he has told us that he was kidnapped and that there were other kidnap victims. His symptoms are on par with someone who has witnessed a violent crime, and we fear the kidnapper could strike again soon. We're hoping that you can shed some light on Todd's condition."

"Why me?"

The policeman narrowed his eyes. "Because on the day after Todd's disappearance, Mrs. St. James reported her daughter missing, as well. She was last seen at a martial arts tournament, speaking to you. Witnesses say that you pulled her out of the building, into the parking lot, and then you both disappeared. Care to tell me what happened, Ethan?"

My heart pounded, but I kept my cool, sticking to the script Kenzie and I had come up with. "Kenzie wanted to see New York City," I said casually. "Her dad didn't want her to go. But she really wanted to see it, you know…before she died." They blinked, probably not knowing if I was being serious or overly dramatic. I shrugged again. "She asked me to take her, so I did. She never said her dad didn't know she was leaving."

Kind of a lame excuse, but I couldn't tell them the real reason, of course. That a bunch of murderous Forgotten had found us at the tournament, chased us into the parking lot, and I'd had to send us both into the Nevernever to escape.

The policeman's lips thinned, and I crossed my arms. "If you don't believe me, ask Kenzie," I told him. "She'll tell you the same thing."

"We intend to do that." They straightened and backed away, making gestures to let me know we were done here. "Go on back to class, but we'll be watching you, Ethan. Stay out of trouble, you hear?"

Relieved, I stood and headed for the door. As I left I could feel the principal's glare on my back. He'd probably hoped I'd be arrested and carted off to juvie; one less delinquent for him to deal with. I certainly gave off the image of the sullen, brooding troublemaker: ripped jeans, shirt turned inside out, pierced ears and defiant smirk firmly in place. But whatever. I wasn't here to be a perfect student or win any trophies. I just wanted to get through the year without any major disasters. Any more major disasters.

I slipped out of the principal's office with a sigh of relief. Another bullet dodged. I was an expert at lying to cover up the truth no one else could see. That the fey were out there and couldn't seem to leave me alone. To keep the people around me safe, I'd become someone no one wanted to be around. I'd driven away potential friends, isolated myself and basically been a dick to anyone who tried to get close to me. Usually it worked. Once I made it clear that I wanted to be left alone, people did just that. No one wanted to deal with a hostile jerk. Except one girl.

Dammit, I hope she's okay. Where are you, Kenzie? I hope you didn't get into trouble because of me.

I supposed we were lucky that we'd been gone only a week. In the Nevernever, time flows differently than in the real world. There are stories of those who vanished into Faery-land for a year and when they came home again, a hundred years had gone by and all they'd known before was changed. Losing one week was getting off pretty easy, but to everyone looking for us, we appeared to have vanished into thin air. With one exception, no one had seen or heard any trace of us from the time we left the tournament until the night we came home, several days later.

So Kenzie and I had had to come up with a really good excuse for when we got back.

"Are you sure?" I'd asked, gazing into her chocolate-brown eyes, seeing my worried reflection staring back at me. "That's the story you want to give your dad when we get home? You decided to visit New York, and I agreed to drive you there?"

Kenzie had shrugged, the moonlight shining off her raven hair. Behind her, the great expanse of Central Park was a black-and-silver patchwork quilt, fading into the glimmering towers over the tree line. Her slim arms hung around my waist, her fingers tracing patterns in the small of my back, distracting me. "Can you think of anything better?"

"Not really." I shivered as her fingers slipped under the hem of my shirt and brushed my skin. I resisted the urge to squirm and tried to focus. "But won't he be mad that you just took off without telling him?"

The girl in my arms gave a bitter smile, not looking up. "He has no right to be," she muttered. "He doesn't care what I do. He never checks up on me. As long as I come back with all my fingers and toes, he won't care where I've been. And if he does say something, tell him that I wanted to see New York City before I died. What is he going to do?"

My gut twisted for a different reason then. I didn't answer, and Kenzie peeked up at me, apologetic. "What about you?" she asked, cocking her head. "What do you want to tell your family when we get home?"

"Don't worry about it," I told her. "My family has dealt with this before." When we lost Meghan. "I'll come up with something."

She fell silent, chewing on her lip. Her soft fingers were still tracing patterns beneath my shirt, sending tremors up my spine. "Ethan?" she said finally, her voice strangely hesitant. "Um.I'm going to see you again, when we get back to the real world, right?"

"Yeah," I whispered, knowing exactly what she meant. She wasn't worried that I would fade from sight like one of the fey, but that I would go back to being that mean, hostile jackass who kept everyone at arm's length. "I promise, I'm not going anywhere," I told her, brushing a dark strand of hair from her eyes. "I'll even do normal things like take you to dinner and go to the movies, if you want."

Kenzie grinned. "Can I introduce you as my boyfriend?"

My stomach lurched the other way. "If you think introducing me to anyone is a good idea," I said, shrugging. "I just hope your dad is as lenient on your boyfriends as he is on your whereabouts. You said he's a lawyer, right?" I grimaced. "I can just see how that first meeting is going to go."

Kenzie rose on tiptoe, her hands climbing my chest to my shoulders, and touched her lips to mine. I sucked in a breath and closed my eyes, feeling her soft mouth caress my lips, forgetting everything for a moment.

"Let me handle my dad," she murmured when we drew back.

"Prince Ethan." A short faery with a potato-like nose, wrinkled and stubby, padded up. The gnome was dressed in a long white coat, and one of its arms was mechanical, the fingers made of needles, tweezers, even a scalpel. "You are injured," it stated, gesturing to the rough bandages trussed around my leg and arm where I'd been sliced open by a couple nasty faery knights. My sleeve and half my pant leg were covered in blood. "The Iron Queen has bid me to tend to your wounds. As she said, in her own words, 'I do not want Mom and Luke freaking out the second he comes home.' Please, sit down."

Kenzie let me go, and, suddenly feeling my injuries, I maneuvered painfully into a seated position. "You can stitch me up all you want," I grumbled as the gnome's index finger became a pair of tiny scissors and began cutting away my arm wrap. "They're still going to freak out when they see me half-drenched in blood. I see an emergency room visit in my future."

"Not necessarily," the gnome returned, and waved its regular arm. I felt the tingle of glamour settle over me as the blood on my shirt abruptly…vanished. Holes disappeared, tears stitched themselves together and my clothes looked perfectly normal again. Beside me, Kenzie drew in a sharp breath, even as I recoiled, not wanting any faery glamour put on me, even if it seemed harmless.

"Oh, calm down," the gnome said, taking my arm again. "It's an illusion, nothing more. But it will break the second you remove your clothes, so I suggest you make sure you are alone when you decide to change. As for these—" it plucked at the sleeve of my shirt "—I suggest a nice bonfire."

When I'd gotten home that night, I'd been bracing myself for an interrogation. Thanks to my sister disappearing into Faeryland thirteen years ago, my parents were paranoid and overprotective to the nth degree. If I was out five minutes past curfew, Mom would be calling my phone, demanding to know where I was, if I was all right. As I'd slipped through the front door that night, I still hadn't known what I was going to tell them, but when I'd seen them in the living room, waiting for me, I'd realized they already knew.

It seemed they had received a visit from the Iron Queen that very night, and Meghan had told them I was safe. That I had been with her in the Nevernever and I was on my way home. She didn't tell them the whole truth, of course; she'd left out the parts with Keirran, and the Forgotten, and how I'd almost died a few times. I'd thought Mom and Dad would want the rest of the story; even if they couldn't see the bloodstains covering my clothes, or the stitched wounds beneath them, they'd had to know something had gone down in Faeryland. But whatever Meghan had told them seemed to be enough. Mom had just hugged the breath out of me, asked if I was all right about four dozen times and left it at that.

Truthfully, I didn't think she wanted to know. Mom was terrified of the fey and thought that if she pretended they didn't exist, they wouldn't harass us. Which kind of sucked for me, because they did. But, at least that night, I'd been glad I didn't have to explain myself. It wasn't often that I was let off the hook. I'd just hoped Kenzie's family was as understanding.

Kenzie. I sighed, scrubbing my hand through my hair, worried again. I hadn't seen her since the night she went home, back to her dad and her stepmom. I'd tried calling her over the weekend, but either her phone was still dead or it had been taken away, because my calls went straight to voice mail. Worried and restless, I'd gotten to school early this morning in the hopes of seeing her, finding out how her family had taken her abrupt disappearance, but I'd been pulled into the principal's office before I could catch a glimpse of the girl who was very suddenly my whole world.

        Hallelujah. How about a trifecta? 1. An Amazing sequel 2. Sh

        Hallelujah. How about a trifecta? 1. An Amazing sequel 2. She actually reminded me the highlight from the first book so I am not stumbling around lost for 1/3 of the book until I remember 3. Holy wow. Characters, romance and action. So a triple trifecta? Anyways, I just wanted to use that word because its awesome just like this book. 
        I loved being in Ethan's head, and he was the same awesome hero that I remembered from the first book, except he is breaking down some of his walls and letting in Kenzie. Who, by the way, is still fiesty and a girl that I love to read about. 
         Julie Kagawa has this way with words, she is a remarkable storyteller, and she makes me delve into her world, her characters until I am flipping pages way past my bedtime and can't keep my eyes open, but I still want to read just a little more, than even more. 
        And of course, I just love being reminded of Ash, so I mean, if he is in it, or even mentioned, then that is something else big going in its favor for me. Because I love me some Ethan, but yum... Ash.  Yeah... Um. Moving on. 
        But really, speaking of old characters, we get a peek at quite a few of them, and it is always fun when they pop in. You know you are in trouble, and need help, and so it comes. But I love the interconnectedness of it all. 
        Kierran reminds me so much of Ash, but he has his own personality quirks and Kagawa crafts him to mirror the best and strongest traits of both of his parents without it feeling like a book series on repeat. We get Ethan's unique perspective and their blossoming friendship, trust and family bonds. 
        The politics and actions both in this book and other books are really coming to a head, and the suspense and tension in the air is palpable in dealing with the courts. There is the delicious rivalry, but also driving need for the Fae to continue to exist, which I sense will require even more inter-court cooperation. 
        The ending really picks up on the action and I couldn't look away from the dangerous situations they got themselves into for the people they love. We also see a lot of emotional struggling, figuring how far is too far to go to save the person you love, or to help your friends and family. We see a lot of darkness, but it is hard because it is all from a really good place in their hearts with their motives. 
        And holy cliffhanger. Yeah. Be prepared. It sucks, and will  continue to do so until book 3 is in our hands. 
         
    Bottom Line: Romance, action, suspense and sacrifice!

    Holy Cow!

    All I can say is that there BETTER BE another book proceeding this one in the series. After reading the somewhat disappointing The Lost Prince (only somewhat disappointing because I did enjoy it in the end) I was surprised at how I found myself WISHING, HOPING, PRAYING, for more after the Iron Traitor was done. I don't want to give anything away, but the end of this book will leave you chomping at the bit! That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars, because I refuse to believe that this is the last addition to the Iron Fey series.

    Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!!!!

    Julie Kagawa does it once again. I am amazed at how I never tire from here stories. She does a beautiful job....making the characters believable. Nevernever is painted with her details and weaving the Fey into the real world adds a spine tingling feeling. Kerrian and Ethan journey to save their friends and loved ones...shows how far people would be willing to go....if they could to save a dying loved one.

    I absolutely loved this book! Julie Kagawa has blown my mind com

    I absolutely loved this book! Julie Kagawa has blown my mind completely. I'm still trying to regain my thoughts about this book and what happened. No matter what Ethan Chase does, he can't seem to live at peace with all the fey following him around. After his return from the Nevernever, all he wanted was to have a normal life with his girlfriend Kenzie, but that didn't last long before his sister visits him and tells him that his nephew, Kierran, has gone missing. He knows that if he wants the fey to leave him alone, he should ignore everything that has to do with them, but when Annwyln comes asking for his help, he can no longer ignore what he has to do. After all, family should stick together no matter what right? In his quest of finding his nephew, he faces danger when he goes back to the world that he promised he'd never return. Now, with his girlfriend and Annwyln by his side, he'll have to find Kierran and stop him from causing more trouble. 




    I almost forgot how much I love Julie's writing, it's so vivid and it makes the whole book come to life. The flow of the story was both exciting and thrilling. It was hard to stop reading the book, without knowing what was going to happen next. The only thing that I'm guessing everyone will hate is the ending! The book ended with a huge cliffhanger and I can't stop thinking about what it's going to happen next. There were times when I felt bad for Ethan and Kenzie, it wasn't their battle to fight, but they both wanted to help Kierran. On the other hand, Kierran left me with mixed feelings, I can understand where his decisions were coming from, but he let what was around him cloud his better judgment. Although I wanted to see more from Meghan and Ash, there were some old characters that did showed up and I was ecstatic to see them come back again. Overall, the book was amazing. I recommend everyone to read the series you will absolutely love it.

    Ethan has just returned from the land of the fey. He just wants

    Ethan has just returned from the land of the fey. He just wants to see his girlfriend Kenzie and live a normal life with no fey involved. Kenzie's dad won't let her see Ethan and that is just the start of the trouble for them. It seems Keirran has come up missing and they want Ethan's help finding him. Going against everyone's wishes Ethan begins the journey to find Kierran then help him find a cure for the Forgotten. Kierran and Ethan become closer and Ethan makes some decisions against everyone's wishes he may wish he hadn't.




    Ethan is the type who doesn't want trouble but it always seems to find him. He loves his family and will do anything for them. He also cares very much for Kenzie and wants her to stay out of things and safe. She really is one the first to look beneath his tough exterior to the guy underneath it. Kenzie may not be the strongest person around but she won't sit back she is willing to jump in and help Ethan in any way no matter what. I like her she has such a drive and does not give up. Keirran I have mixed feelings about. I do understand he will do anything to save the one he loves but he is very selfish at times about it. He has a dark edge that is showing more and more. He doesn't think before he does things. 




    I like this series and for me with each book I seem to enjoy it more. I like this addition as it shows more of Kierran and what all he will do. Ethan you also get to at times see the softer side of with Kenzie. This is a journey back into the land of Fey and other places. I really liked seeing the Market as it was new to me. I love seeing Kenzie and Ethan together. They are so good together and you really want the best for them both. Ethan reveals a few things in this book about how he feels and it makes him a better character to me. I will say I was surprised by how this ends and now i am so ready for the next book. I have to know more. The author has done a great job creating this world and characters. You truly feel you are in a land of magic. You also get to see more face from the past show up in this one. Be prepared for some surprises when you read this. I recommend reading these in order as you may get lost if you don't.

    Another book

    There should be another book because it leaves you hanging at the end because some people would like to now what happeneds next like do they break the veil? Or do the courts have all out war? Or does ethen not die some how? So they should have another book to let people now what happens next.

    Another awesome book in the series. If you liked her previous books from this series then you'll love this one too. I'm already patiently waiting for the next book to come out to finish up this new adventure.

    Oh.my.freaking.god. Someone needs to stop Julie Kagawa before sh

    Oh.my.freaking.god. Someone needs to stop Julie Kagawa before she writes more masterpieces. Seriously. She kind of destroyed my heart with this one. As usual, we meet a bunch of characters from the Nevernever, some old familiar turn up, and the writing is, once again, top-notch. Julie Kagawa is an amazing author, and she drives that point home once again, with this novel. Words cannot describe how awesome this is. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Wonderful story

    Another great book from Julie Kagawa. One of my favorite authors. Her writing style draws you right into her created world and makes you feel a part of the fey world you're reading about. This book did not dissappoint. It had been a while between books for me in this series. But I had no trouble picking it up and reading through without being lost because there were many highlights through out the story to remind you of things that may have slipped our minds. Lovable, fun, heart wrenching, with an ending that makes you beg for the next book. Looking forward to more great works of art from this author. Thank you for sharing your gift with us Mrs.Kagawa.

    What's up with the end?

    The series was great, but Ethan at least should've spent more time with Kenzie. I cried. Not kidding. I got so mad, I kinda wished that I never read the series. But it really was the best series of books that I have ever read. GO IRON FEY!

    The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2) by Jul

    The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2) by Julie Kagawa

    Ethan Chase and Kenzie just return home from Faery and need to face the consequences of leaving the mortal realm without telling anyone.  Ethan is happy to be home and not planning on ever going back to Faery. However, that doesn’t last long, Ethan’s nephew, Keirran, goes missing and he needs to return in order to find him before Keirran does something they will all regret.
     
    Julie Kagawa once again did a great job with this series.  I got the impression that a lot of the details in this book are going to be important in book three.

    Kagawa’s character development is exceptional.  The individuals are all diverse.  It is easy to distinguish between characters when reading the dialog.  

    I feel bad for poor Ethan, who keeps getting wrapped up in the drama of Faery.  The poor kid can’t get a break.  Thanks goodness he has Kenzie to rely on, whether he wants her help or not.

    The Iron Traitor ends  hanger right up there with Han Solo being frozen in carbonite in Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back.   I cannot wait to read what happens in the next book, The Traitor Son.
