The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa is about a boy named Ethan Chase who was recently pulled into the world by the fey (faeries). If his life wasn't messed up enough, it definitely is now. His girlfriend, Kenzie, is sick with a life-threatening disease and his nephew has disappeared and he suspects the worst. It turns out that Ethan was right; Kieran, the once kind faery, has turned into a monster who has no love in his frozen heart. Ethan now has to go up against his nephew and once trusted friend, Kieran, and make sure he doesn't do something that will destroy all of Faery.
This is a really good book overall. I love how Julie Kagawa describes the settings. It’s like you can see, hear, feel, touch, smell, and/or taste everything she is describing through her colorful use of vocabulary. Kagawa also creates great personalities and uses those personalities to help influence the choice the characters make, which I really like in books. I’ve read a lot of books where the author creates a great personality and suddenly the author makes the character do something that I would never expect them to do because it’s not who they are and I’m really happy that Kagawa doesn't do that in The Iron Traitor. I also love how Kagawa doesn't drown you in information at one time, she just slowly adds on and explains everything. This isn't my favorite book by Julie Kagawa but I would definitely recommend reading it.
