Book Review: The Lost Boy - Karen Mahoney

The Lost Boy (The Iron Witch, #0.5)
‘The Lost Boy’ started life as a story written for an anthology of urban faery tales. The anthology was eventually cancelled (although I’d withdrawn my story long before that happened) leaving me with a homeless story. It’s about half-fey Xan from The Iron Witch, and is set several months before that novel – before Donna even meets him – so there are no major spoilers for the trilogy. But the story does of course give some insight into Xan himself, as it’s written from his POV and we’re in his head for the duration.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
Xan, who we know from The Iron Witch Series is part Fae.  I really enjoyed seeing Xan and finding out part of his story and his relationship with Ivy (a changeling).  I think Xan needs his own book, maybe some kind of prequel about what it was like growing up and having his powers emerge.  Xan's world is a world that we don't get to see too much in the series.
