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.

At a Glance:
The Iron Traitor takes us once again back to the NeverNever. We continue to follow along Ethan journey with Kenzie alongside him. Kierran is missing and Ethan must stop at nothing to find him before it too late.

I absolutely love each and every cover that has been created in the Iron Fey series PERIOD. I alive the font that is used with the whimsical touch, I love that we always have a  face on the cover to picture while we read (and not a bad face to stare at at all), I love the the blue toned used in The Iron Traitor, seems very fitting. The use of the woods in the background is a great touch. Its just so vivid and detailed orientated. Perfect!

Romance has never been an issue with this series or its predecessor. What I love about Julie's writing when it comes to the romance is the detail of every touch or look or just a simple gesture. You don't have to sex to have a great romance. Julie excelled once again in The Iron Traitor when it came down to knocking the socks of you feet romance.

Kenzie hands down. Even though she is a fragile flower she continues to guide and support Ethan. I have become a fan and I love her stubbornness and determination, Ethan would be a fool not to start getting heavier feeling for her.

Ethan takes the hero title. Not because he used brute force but because he finally started to show a softer side that showed he wasn't always angry at the world. Funny, sexy Ethan i definitely very hero-like.

Somethings I Loved:
Ok something I loved in this installment was the great mixture of characters. We didn't just read about Ethan and Kenzie, nope Julie gave us a little bit here and there of everyone we have grown to love from the past and also the newbies too. Yes the story surrounds Ethan but it wasn't just about Ethan.

Something I Disliked:
NOTHING! I have yet to come across anything in Julie's writing I have not liked. I sound like a broken record every time I review her books because I never have anything negative to share (which is awesome IMHO).

All hail to Julie Kagawa for becoming the new Queen of cliffhangers. WOW! Last time I wanted to chuck my book after finishing it was a long time ago. I have read some crazy good cliffhangers but Kagawa took the lead.

Would I Recommend It:
Yes I would just like every single other book that Julie has written. I do recommend to read in order so you do follow along without any glitches.
