Series:The Iron Fey: The Call of the Forgotten #2
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: October 29 2013

Ethan Chase has always ignored his Sight. He's had a long history with the Fey. One that he does not want. So he's done the best he can to make sure that the Fey ignore him and he ignores the Fey. Along with that he's always been a loner. Because he wants to make sure that the Fey don't come after anyone that he's close to. However all of that changed when he met Kenzie and they had an adventure into the Nevernever. Although once they came back Ethan vowed to never venture to the Fey world again, Keirran is missing and needs Ethan's help.

So if we've read these books we know that Kenzie has cancer. But she's determined to live her life before anything happens when she can't be out and about. However, she's in the hospital twice in this book because of all of the craziness with Nevernever and dealing with the Fey. It really seems to me like she needs to be a bit more logical about all of this and keep herself safe. But she really doesn't, so she's throughout this entire book.

Ethan has been hiding most of his contact with the Fey from his parents but in this books he definitely opens up. He basically tells them that this is something he has to deal with in his life and they need to get used to it. Of course because of what happened with Meghan, his mother is completely against this. But apparently these kids just do whatever they want because he's off to Nevernever and New Orleans and everywhere else hunting down and then helping Keirran.

We get to really follow Keirran on his journey to save his girlfriend. Although this is following Ethan and his pov, the book is really about Keirran and the quest he's on. Ethan is just there to help. Keirran's girlfriend is a summer Fey and she's fading away since she was banished from the Nevernever. Although being able to save her and stop her from fading is extremely bleak, Keirran is determined to stop it. Even though everyone is basically telling him that nothing is going to work, even her.

I liked this book but in some parts it feels like they're just doing these things for no reason. I really didn't think that Kenzie should have been with them at all. And Keirran made a lot of really bad decisions that put everyone including his parents in a bad place. The end of this book left me reeling, talk about a cliffhanger. I'm definitely going to read the next book to find out what is going to happen next. Because honestly she can't just leave it like that. Really. She can't.


  1. Great review Amber, one day ...

  2. I need to start this series! I love all hers covers, I remember buying the first book on the blind just because I loved the cover, but I never went back to listen...LOL. I need to do it. I know how you guys feel, it just to be so easy when they didn't publish everything on audio (I had time to keep up), now is just impossible. Just went I want to go back to one of the books I already bought, there's a new release I must listen to..LOL

    1. I'm not too much into audio. There are a few that I love though. I bought the first Meghan books simply based off of the covers when I saw them at the store. I love this series.

  3. I haven't started this series yet. I have the first two of Meghan's story, but just haven't gotten around to them.
