    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!

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.

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 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.  *ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

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.

This is the second book in the Call of the Forgotten trilogy, but the sixth book in The Iron Fey series. I absolutely loved it! Ethan Chase is a fantastic character. I really liked him when I first met him as a frightened four year old when he was kidnapped by The Iron King and taken into Faery in the first book of the series. Now he's seventeen and he's grown up into a wonderful young man. He is determined to live a normal life but, when his nephew Keirran goes missing, Ethan finds himself being swept into another dangerous adventure. I have become addicted to this series. I started reading this book as soon as I had finished reading The Lost Prince and didn't put it down until I had finished it. I enjoyed meeting all of the previous characters again: Grimalkin, Puck, Meghan, Ash, Leanansidhe, Razor and Kenzie. The reader is also introduced to some new characters, one of them being the Thin Man, who is the mayor of the town of the Forgotten. He is determined to restore the balance, which was disturbed when Ash and company travelled through it when going to the end of the world to win his soul years before. The forgotten are growing stronger under the leadership of The Forgotten Queen and the outcast and half-breed fey in the human world are disappearing. Meghan is concerned and asks Ethan to investigate what's happening. What he discovers will have serious consequences for both the human world and the land of Faery if he is unable to stop a prophecy from coming true. This story is again full of action, adventure, danger and romance. There are a few twists that I didn't see coming and a couple of shocks too. I love the witty dialogue between the characters and the vivid storytelling brought this book to life. I could picture the scenes in my minds eye with ease. In fact, I didn't feel like I was reading at all but watching a movie. As the story unfolded I found myself on a roller coaster ride of emotion and had tears streaming down my face on more than one occasion, as well as sitting on the edge of my seat at others. I reached the end of the book in a state of shock and disbelief. I have a love/hate relationship to cliffhangers but I can't wait to read the last book in the trilogy, The Iron Warrior, as soon as I can. Julie Kagawa has written a fantastic Young Adult series. I love her writing style, which is fast paced and exciting. The flow was also wonderful, as each scene moved effortlessly into the next. She has found a firm fan in me and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future. Although there are no scenes of a sensual nature, there are scenes that are violent or a little gory. Therefore, I do not recommend this to readers under 15. However, I highly recommend this book if you love YA fantasy or paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton

Okay, I gotta like it because it's a Nevernever story and written by Julie Kagawa.  There were a few things that didn't quite gel for me, however.  I had a little trouble getting into, and sticking with, this one at first.  I still loved the characters, but at the same time, a couple of them made some pretty poor choices in this story.  Obviously, characters aren't always going to choose the correct path, otherwise we wouldn't have a story.  That being said though, there's a difference between making a wrong choice and making just some downright stupid choices that can't even be justified. I still love Ethan Chase, and I love the journey that he's on.  Slowly but surely he's opening up and becoming our hero.  I love when he gets into fight mode and I have to admit that these are some of my favorite scenes.  He's so brave and strong in this series. But I have to hand it to Keirran as a character.  It's almost as if this story is gradually more then Keirran's story rather than Ethan's.  This could be a good or a bad thing, depending.  But I am downright fascinated by Keirran and the changes he's going through.  Just when I think I know his motives, something happens to make me question them.  But he's so fascinating that ou can't help but be riveted by him. May I say that I loved, loved, loved having Puck back in this story.  He's one of the things that so enchanted me about the original Iron Fey series.  Having him involved was great, as were the few moments with Ash. It's always great to have Ash there.  Then there's the ending.  I was so shocked by this ending, wailing at my book and counting down the days until we would get to find out what happens from there.  Julie Kagawa certainly knows how to leave you wanting more.  In fact, the writing was amazing as always.  Julie is a born storyteller and knows how to pull you into her work.  Another great installment.

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 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.
