The Lost Prince back cover summary

Woot! The back cover copy and inner flap of THE LOST PRINCE was revealed today.

Feast your eyes on the back:

























And even more exciting, le summary:







As usual, tell me your thoughts.  What do you think Ethan is going to face?  Who do you hope to see again?  (Note the "talking cats" reference in the summary. Yes, "he" will probably pop up somewhere in the story.  There's no keeping him out of it.)

-Julie

    1. I would love to see Puck in this series!!! Is Ash & Megan's son in the series too??

    2. OK I believe I need to post this. When ash did those tests to become mortal, and he passed, the guardian said that that may not be exactly what happens. It was just an example of what would happen as he ages and Meghan doesnt- will someone please tell me if I'm wrong?? I'm serious. I will probably read te whole series again. Or skip to my face prts.:-) !!

  24. I SOOO cannot wait for more TIF!!! Everything you write is magical Julie!! As for Ethan... he's obviously scarred for all he went through in The Iron King. That would emotionally scar anyone. I read the teaser at the end of The Immortal Rules' netgalley... so I have a feeling I know who the girl is... maybe?! Unless he falls for a fey girl?? I'm glad that Grimalkin will be back... and I can't wait to see if Meghan, Ash & Puck make appearances in this new story too!! Did I say I was excited?!! ;)

  29. You know what I first said when I saw this post? Holy crap. Holy CRAP!

    To answer your question, well, I would like to see Leanansidhe and Titania again. Weird combo, eh? Kinda gives you an idea for a scene. Not that I want to see them together.

    Hrm. Anyway, I just had an idea. Like what if Meghan and Alison were to be together somewhere somehow? I know they're in both different worlds, but it would be kind of awesome to see them talk to each other. Long-distance?

    A: Hello?
    M: Allie! It's great to hear from you again. I have-
    A: Meghan? You are paying for this call, right?

    Ahaha so much for my randomness.

    Oh, and one character I really, really want to see again? SAGE. SAGE SAGE SAGE. I can't even say his name enough. Please, Julie?

    1. Sage died in the second book. And who is allison?? I've read ALL the iron fey books more tban once and there was never any Allison mentioned

      Delete
  30. Does this mean he's disgusted by his sister? Becasue he hates the Iron Realm and she's the queen of it now? Or does he still love his big sissy and just hates the place? O.o the jacket seems to say the first. :(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay!! I read the sneek peak in the back of TIR and that made me want to read it but this is torture.I.Want.This.Book.NOW.Really want to see Puck Leansidhe and Megan.oh and of course old grimalkin.(even though he would probably scracth me.)

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG!! Didn't even know you were writing a new book. And... now that I do I will be obsessively checking Amazon every day, clenching my ears, rocking back and forth until the day this book comes out.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG, JULIE!!! I just heard the PERFECT song for Ash and Megan..... It's called Your Guardian Angel by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus!!!

  37. Hello ! I am French! And I'm completely a fan of your books! When will The Immortal and The Lost Prince rules in France? Thank you very much and most of all keep writing ! I love Meghan, Ash, Puck ... ! :)

  38. I'm really excited about this book! Ethan sounds interesting as a protagonist. So happy Grimalkin will be popping up! I hope Meghan, Ash & Puck'll be mentioned or something :) Oh, and Glitch of course ^______^
    Would also like to see Kierran make a return as well =D

  39. WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Offically. Pyshced. Can't. Wait. Any. Longer!
    AHHHHHHH!!!! Why oh why does time go so slowly???
    haha, of course Grim's gonna be in the book. It's wouldn't be complete without a headaching cat talking in riddles and acting like he has no care in the world. Still, if Kierran were to show up, he wouldn't be too old. It's only been a few years, and time is slower in the Nevernever, so Kierran would be only like 8 or something. Still, it would be neat to see him! And there of course has got to be some reappearance of meghan too...ethan needs to learn to love the faery world, and what better way than being able to see his sister?
    Keep writing Julie, because you're amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yay! The back cover is finally out! Ooh, is Grim coming back to be Ethan's guide? (hehe) He would make things a lot easier for Ethan. Will he encounter the Iron Queen? :)

    1. hahaha exactly what i was going to comment! if theres no ash i will jump off the westgate bridge.. or maybe i'll just delve into the nevernever forever.. either way this wont end well if theres no ASH!!!

  43. I love the cover! My Gosh! Now, I think, it says "The Lost Prince", so o wonder...I hope it's not ariella. I had enough of her in the Iron Knight, so I honestly hope I won't have to read about her again ( my personal opinion). But my excited about Ethan story!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think I'm going to ignore Ash and Megan parts. I read the iron knight some time ago and I still have to recover from what I went through. For one, Ash didn't want to be with Megan, he wanted to be with Ariella. He states: "It had to be this way, regardless of my feelings." I have one question for Kagawa, I know you won't answer me but, why did you force Ash to be with Megan? He didn't want that...he wanted to be with Ariella. You should have given him his happily ever after-which wasn't with Megan. Did you do it because you felt forced to do so? It was clear that he wanted to ditch Megan.

    1. First off: You spelt MEGHAN wrong.

      ***(SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T READ UP TO THE IRON QUEEN & THE IRON KNIGHT)***

      If you remember at the end of The Iron Queen, Meghan allowed Ash to leave and part away from her, when she was dying. (Ash HIMSELF made the oath to find a way to be with her)

      In The Iron Knight when Ash somehow went inside Meghan's dream and then Ariella had broken in afterwards, Meghan told Ash that he can choose to be with Ariella and have a happy life with her. (She gave him a CHOICE)

      By the way, in the end, Ash actually wanted to be with Meghan, not Ariella. He was the one who chose his fate.
      No-one forced him to be with Meghan, it was his own choice.

      All in all, please re-read the books because you really haven't read the books properly at all. Julie Kagawa is a brilliant author and seeing as this is HER blog I don't think you need to rant on the comments page.

      Delete
    2. I have read them over and over. and he said that he HAD to choice MEGHAN because of his oath. because he made it and HAD to honor it. I understand the dream, read the scene many times. I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT'S thinking this. the kiss scene between him and ariella, i don't know, but it rubbed me the wrong way. he made the oath IQ because Ari was believe to be dead-image if he knew she wasn't dead, would he have made the oath? At the end, he was still going crazy because ariella had die again, though he was ok with it this time because it was by her choice, all he thought about was ariella-not MEGHAN. And I read the books over and over again until I couldn't anymore. I understand she was his first love but my opinion, it will always be emotional baggage. http://www.fanpop.com/spots/the-iron-fey-series/picks/results/609421/ash go to his and read it.

    3. I never said that you're the "only" person who supports Ash and Ariella. (I'm not stupid) ಠ__ಠ

      I checked out the website and get what most people thought Ash should end up with: → Meghan ←
      So in YOUR FACE!

    4. I never meant this as "Do in you face" type thing, so I don't understand why so you're so hyped up for. Yes, about mehgan being in the lead but did you read the some comments, that i was using as my back up form my opinion. u shouldn't get offended by that. never a hit towards you or Kagawa. Why are so competitive for? I don't think Mehgan and Ash should have ended together. And goodreads, 50 go with Ariella and 50 go with Mehgan. I always preferred mehgan but i think Ash wanted Ariella more. that's my opinion and it nothing will EVER change that. I love Mehgan but maybe she should have ended up with Puck. no need to get all pissed. if I have offended you then...come one dude seriously. And about Ariella, im not a fan but I left sorry for her. She sacrificed lot for Ash. she should be given credit for that. And i can't believe 101 Ways to Get Revenge on Ariella! I'm 23, so I understand what Ariella went through. Yes she behaved childishly in iron knight but hey can you blame her for it? She lost the love of her life, everything that Ash probably promised to share with her, is now given to another woman. she had her love fall out of in love with her and watch as he fought for another and the scene when Ash told her he didn't love her anymore.... It was heartbreaking. And yes I was ranting but in defense of Ariella and the fact that I felt like IK was a little unfair with Mehgan. that was all. I hope you're next reply will be a little clean.

      Sweetheart when you fall in love and have to let it go,just Kagawa should have given Ash and Ariella more time. if you're 14 then i get way you're behaving the way that you are. Kagawa if you read this, I'm sorry that I wrote what I did but I needed to air this out and if I have offended you, I'm sorry. I am also sorry that the conversation is turning ugly. I am not a fan of Ariella but I sympathies with her.

      Delete
    5. Okay, I respect your opinion as everyone has one.

      I'm not 'hyped up' by the way and to be honest, I think you're competitive yourself, not just me.
      Oh, about you saying my next reply should be 'a little clean,' (you're actually the one swearing using words like 'piss' and you claim to be "23")

      I'm guessing you're not civilised enough to talk to so I'm not even gonna waste my time arguing with strangers on the internet that use foul language. This is just a waste of time.

      Goodbye, as I'm out of this conversation.
      Life's just short.
