Julie Kagawa's bestselling series The Iron Fey captivated the imagination—and hearts—of readers of all ages with its mix of magic, fantasy and romance. Enjoy this special bridge novella, which takes place between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter.
Meghan Chase used to be an ordinary girl…until she discovered that she is really a faery princess. After escaping from the clutches of the deadly Iron Fey, Meghan must follow through on her promise to return to the equally dangerous Winter Court with her forbidden love, Prince Ash. But first, Meghan has one request: that they visit Puck—Meghan's best friend and servant of her father, King Oberon—who was gravely injured defending Meghan from the Iron Fey.
Yet Meghan and Ash's detour does not go unnoticed. They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter—a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat….
Meghan Chase learned in The Iron King that she is a faery princess, daughter of King Oberon of the Summer Court. Meghan was living in the human world and didn’t know that her best friend, Robin, was really Puck, servant of her father. Puck was injured while helping Meghan and Prince Ash rescue Meghan’s brother from The Iron King.
Meghan made a deal with Prince Ash to gain his help. Meghan and Ash have become close friends, young lovers almost, even though Ash is an enemy being a Prince of the Winter Court. Now Meghan is fulfilling her part of the bargain by allowing Ash to take her to Queen Mab in the Winter Court. As they travel they realize that there is some danger chasing them.
Ash tries to protect Meghan, but perhaps Meghan can protect him. When they arrive at the Winter Court, Meghan will have to face Queen Mab and Ash cannot promise to help her.
It had been quite sometime since I listened to The Iron King. I appreciated the recap and the action in this novella. It has a magical feel and wonderful descriptions. It is a good reminder of the events of book one and a nice transition to book two in the series. The danger is just beginning but I’ll have to read the Iron Daughter to learn what happens next.
I choose this book from my Kindle Library because it has "Winter" in the title, the word being chosen as a result of a recent giveaway.
