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 was full of adventure, romance and misdirection. The plot was flawless, in my opinion. The story picks up right where The Lost Prince left off. All the time Ethan and Kenzie spent traipsing through the NeverNever lasted a week in human time. Needless to say, Ethan has a new enemy...Kenzie's father! He is super intimidating and wants Ethan to have nothing to do with Kenzie. This, of course, isn't going to happen. Soon, Ethan and Kenzie are right back in the NeverNever with Kierran, Ethan's nephew. They are on a quest to save Kierran's love, Annywl, from fading into nothingness. Annwyl was a servant in the Summer Court that was banished by Queen Titania and is in desperate need of help. As much as Ethan hates it, he can't refuse and that is when the trouble begins...
Julie Kagawa has totally hit her stride in The Iron Traitor. I would have to say the best in all of The Iron Fey books as of yet. It is an exquisitely crafted novel and I absolutely adored it! Plus, Razor was back in full force. I just love that little gremlin!
5 stars to The Iron Traitor!
