Goodreads synopsis: Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them. That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for. Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten. 
My review: I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Net Galley can be found at http://www.netgalley.com. I have the first 4 books of the series on my nook but haven't found time to read them yet. I always put some other book ahead of them. Oh my gosh, how could I have done this?! This book was absolutely amazing. I loved it! I'm actually going to have to take a few weeks off of all my other books and just read those four books. I don't think I can think of anything bad about this book, maybe I did find Ethan to be a little whiny, but as a teenage boy, I completely understand his point of view. I never read the first four books, so I was a little biased against Meghan, but I couldn't hate her. Grimalkin is my favorite character hands-down. He's hilarious, a typical cat. My favorite line from the book was from Leanansidhe..."Unless you want to find yourselves in a dragon's lair or the wrong end of a witch's bargain, it's never a good idea to annoy the cat." I think my own five cats would agree with the sentiment. Ultimately, I can't wait to read the first four books.
