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


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. (Via Goodreads)

      First off I would like to thank for the ARC of this book!
      During the entire book, Kerrian's theme song was Taylor Swift's I knew you were trouble. I heard that song in my head every time that Karrian was mentioned. 

      The whole book was fueled by the love Kerrian and Annwyl share.  Love makes you blind is a summary for this book.

       Ethan and Kenzie have a rocky relationship. It has its flat and smooth moments as well as jagged and rough ones. Ethan kept pestering Kenzie about how she should stay out of Nevernever and not to join them on all their insane quests. Most male leads tend to do that and it is usually annoying but I had to agree with Ethan on this one. Kenzie had been hospitalized with a mysterious disease that she most likely got from Nevernever and her cancer may have returned; so, it was way to risky for her to return to Nevernever. But Kenzie is a character that can take care of herself.  She has already managed to prove that a couple of times throughout the series.

       I think it is fascinating that Meghan, Ash, Puck, Grimalkin and some other characters from The Iron Fey series make reappearances in this series.

       Julie Kagawa is a great author and I was glad that she made Ethan the narrator because I unlike in the The Iron Fey series where she used Meghan as the narrator.  I could only read one and a half books from the Iron Fey series because of this. The Iron Fey series is great and well written but I just could not get past Meghan. I also liked the author's choice of narrator for the Blood of Eden series.

        Overall, The Iron Traitor was action-packed, heart-shattering, dramatic and as usual has a cool and creative cover design.  I loved that an exerpt from The Forever Song, the next book in the Blood of Eden series, was included. I am highly anticipating the next book in The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten release after the cliffhanger ending in this book.
