"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 serv

When we were young, we usually ask our parents to tell stories that will delight our evening. It was like a new life, a new day for a kid and everlasting days of sweet dreams. When we are older, we want to tell stories to the younger one and sometimes we felt behind from the stories that had been told. A lot of books lately had been published to create different perspective of the old fairy tales that our parents told us every night and sometimes they recreate a new story that will warm readers ...more

I hope this is as necessary to follow the story as I've been told.

(half a hour or so later)

...Given that the most interesting thing in it is a cameo of Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas, I dare guess it isn't.
Final rating: 3/5 stars

This short story is kind of necessary for the series because it shows in a way how Ash feels and all dread Meghan has to face now + there is something vicious stalking them...and it will be important later in the series.

Basically the synopsis is enough to tell you what is going on, but still... It's worth reading :) I kind of miss Puck by now and i hope he is going to return in all his glory ASAP.

Now,onto the next book :D

A sweet little novella which fits in between the full length novels of this series. It deserves several stars just for the stunning cover! It is a quick, easy read which gives the reader more insight into the characters and the relationship between the two main characters. So not essential reading but more background to the main event. Also more Ash for those readers who regard him as the main event!!!

I can't believe this book was free! I totally would've paid for it. THANK YOU!!!! This will satiate my nagging impatience for Iron Daughter. The only thing that would make me happier is moving the release of book 2 to about 2 weeks from today (hint, nudge, wink). Follow the link for happiness.

What a TEASE! My impatience for the release of The Iron Daughter just multiplied exponentially! Winter's Passage spins the tale of Meghan and Ash's journey to Tir Na Nog to uphold Ash's vow to the Winter Qu

Once I was finished with The Iron King I was stumped because I wanted to read the second book soon after, but I was (and still am) on hold for The Iron Daughter and needed something to satisfy my need to know what happens, so I downloaded this from this from the author's site for free. Score for me!

This short story records Ash and Meghan's misadventure trying to travel to the Winter Court. They of course encounter resistance and problems in just a few pages, and the story ends with Meghan situat

While this was only a novella, I thoroughly enjoyed it for the hour and a half or so I put into it. I wanted a little more of Prince Ash and I was sitting at work during lunch break and decided to read this-and I'm so glad I did.

Summer and Winter were not supposed to fall in love.

By reading this, I got little bits and pieces of Ash, that while some of it is being recapped in The Iron Daughter, there are also parts that aren't being mentioned again and I get to log those away in my creepy, obses
Winter's Passage is a sweet taste of the continuation of The Iron King. We were left off with Ash coming to get Megan and bring her back, as promised, to the Winter Queen. On this icy adventure, nothing ever goes smoothly in Julie Kagawa's stunning fae world, as Ash and Meghan are being followed by an old evil force.
This, is there journey...

This was so awesome! Even if it was only a small taste back into this world, it was so worth the read! It was so great to see Ash, Meghan and even Grim again

A nice little intro to the Iron Daughter, where Meghan explains everything that's happened and we see her travel to Tir Na Nog with Ash, before making a pit stop to visit Puck, a friend who was injured in The Iron King.

I’m so glad I continued this series! This novella was everything I wanted the 1st book to be. It had more Megan and Ash, more dire situations, less description of the scenery, less descriptions and appearances of the creatures (I’m just not a huge fan of creepy creatures) and lots of actions and words from Ash that made me completely melt and sigh out loud. Although he still gives his fair share of trying to curtail his feelings about Meghan even though it seems fruitless.

For those of you who've been hiding under a rock, Winter's Passage is an Iron Fey novella that takes place between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter. It's a really short read, but it's definitely worth your time. Winter's Passage contains everything I loved about The Iron King and The Iron Daughter, except its length. Since I've read everything Julie Kagawa has written so far, I'm just going to have to writhe in agony until Book 3 (The Iron Queen) is released. And that's going to be awhile...

Winter's passage is a very short transition short story between The Iron King and The Iron's Daughter. At just 50 pages I can honestly say that I didn't expect a lot of this. Although, I found it was not a direct shot of delivering Megan to the Winter court, and included added emotion to the ongoing struggle for the Winter Son and Summer Daughters love. I am even more eager to get my hands on the next book. This series promises success.

I loved this story! I just wish there was a book so I could add it to my collection. This will definately tide me over until Iron Daughter.
It was okay for a novella. Nothing special really.
Finally, you'll know what took place after Prince Ash came to get Meghan from her home, as part of their contract, to see the Winter Queen.

Very short, but great story. Lots of action, sweet romance and very nice surprises.

If you liked The Iron King, this one is a must-read. Specially if you're going to read The Iron Daughter.

Maybe you're lucky to read the advance copy of The Iron Daughter or maybe you read a review, but surely you already know that Ash and Meghan are not the same as in The Iron

Having read Naruto(its a manga btw) I already know that fillers for most of the time are crap. Yeah and this filler novella was just like that but still the writing is not that bad and forgive me but I just felt annoyed that I think I just wasted my time on this one rather than having starting to read the next book Iron Daughter.

So yeah not a bad filler but not great either and to think that the scenes in this book were mentioned also in flashback in Iron Daughter. And I was like what the fudge

Winter’s Passage has done me a kindness in easing the wait between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter. I will be upfront and say that I have a minor complaint about this book: I wanted more! I confess that a few parts of the novella felt a tiny bit rushed to me, particularly the climax. Otherwise, I think Winter’s Passage did a great job of tying up a few loose threads from The Iron King while still presenting a bit of a cliffhanger as readers wait for The Iron Queen.

For such a short volume, K

I'm like a rabid dog right now,and I'm sure I'll start sprouting fur if I don't get my hands on The Iron Daughter soon.

Set right after The Iron King. Ash has come to take Meghan back to Mag and the Winter court to fulfill the terms of their deal. Meghan is determined to keep the promise she made she only asks to go and see Puck before setting out to be held captive by Queen Mab for who know how long. But Oberon wants his daughter back in the Summer court and has sent something to bring her home.

This is a good look into the struggle that Ash faces as he knows the rules of Faery and while he cares for Meghan he al

Julie Kagawa continues to bring witty, fun, adventurous, heartwarming style in her Iron Fey Series. Winter’s Passage brings readers up to speed with Meghan Chase following up how she ends up in the Winter Court. The thing I love about The Iron Fey Series is Meghan and Ash; how they act around each other, how they have learned to read each other’s emotions even when they are trying not to show any emotion at all. Winter’s Passage stays true to The Iron Fey Series with snarky commentary, lust, lov ...more

Sorry my Goodreads kingdom. I had been missing for quite some times now. Uni is driving me nuts and not getting a constant dose of reading is equally maddening.

So...Winter's Passage. It's not bad. I mean, how could it be bad when it was written by Julie Kagawa.

But meh! I liked Meghan less in this novella and I was told that I would like her even less in The Iron Daughter. Honestly, that Big Bad Wolf has more personalities than she does. I cringed e

Winter's Passage is not a full-length book, but an interim e-novella in the Iron Fey series that takes place between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter.

The story continues exactly where the first book ended. If you remember, Meghan, the Summer Princess, made a contract with Ash, the Winter Prince, in The Iron King and Ash had done his part of his contract in the first book. In "Winter's Passage", Ash comes to get Megha

UPDATE: Julie Kagawa has written another e-book exclusive novella out in June, SUMMER'S CROSSING -- told from Puck's POV! PUCK! OMG YES!! :D :)


Great short story! I loved it. I loved how Meghan kept her part of the deal even after (view spoiler)

I absolutely love this cover! I really wish I could touch this cover. I mean, it's beautiful. Plus the wolf girl in me adores it. This is one ebook that I really, really wish was a physical book. WOW! Julie packs everything that I love in a good book, into less than 60 pages. Action, romance, and it has a wolf, which was the perfect paranormal character.

If you've read The Iron King, you'll know that Megan gave her word to Ash, that she would return to the Winter Court with him. If you've read Th

An amazing treat from Julie Kagawa, Winter's Passage has everything that I love from The Iron King plus more. I love the way that Julie created her faerie mythology in The Iron King and we see another addition to it in Winter's Passage as she introduces The Hunter which is a very old mythical creature and one of my favorites.

The story begins right where The Iron King ended, Meghan has agreed to go to the Winter Court with Ash so they start their adventure filled journey in Winter's Passage. We g

GAH!!!! I love this world!!!! I missed Puck. But this was freakin awesome!!!! I love Grim, as usual. His sudden appearance and disappearances all the time. I love Meghan and Ash. This journey is just incredible. I can clearly picture everything happening and Kagawa has an ability to draw you in so deep, making you feel like you're along for the ride as well. What a great novella. Love it!!!

I freaking adore this series!! I mean... this is the shiz niz!!

So, in this book (as you will see) it's cold and icey and there's a wolf staring at you on the cover.

But why a wolf? WHY?!!!

I asked myself that same question throughout this book until I figured it out. And the answer is BRILLIANT!! But I refuse to tell you girlies any more ... wait... do any guys read my reviews?
