Book Summary:
The Iron Prince—my nephew—betrayed us all. 

He killed me. 

Then, I woke up. 

Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever. 

Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase.To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore.

Shannon's Thoughts:
I liked this book, but find I have very little to say about it!  I don't have any complaints really.  I think I liked this final book this best out of the Call of the Forgotten series and it was a great ending to the Iron Fey series (which is divided into two parts: 4 books in the Iron Fey, which follows Meghan and Ash's story and 3 books in the Call of The Forgotten series, follows Ethan, Meghan's little brother).  

The book starts out at the worst it can possibly get and I was a little worried how they were all going to get out of it. But it had a very satisfying ending. I loved that everyone makes an appearance, even some from the earlier Iron Fey books.  Some of my little annoyances (like constantly referring to people by their title/nickname instead of their name, e.g. The Winter Prince, instead of Ash) were not as prevalent in this book, so I was happy.  Overall, a fun read if you like faeries!  

I don't think you necessarily need to read the first four books to read the Call of the Forgotten, but it would certainly give you a lot of context.

Books in the Series:
1. The Iron King
2. The Iron Daughter
3. The Iron Queen
4. The Iron Knight
5. The Lost Prince
6. The Iron Traitor
7. The Iron Warrior
