I...was in love. With Meghan Chase.

Hell with it.

I...was in love. With Meghan Chase. A human. And the princess of the Seelie Court. It was a cruel joke, of course.

God knows I love Puck but I've long ago given up on him and Meghan (because I want him for myself, of course. To hell with ice-boy) so I am now able to enjoy Ash/Meghan scenes. This is just wonderful!

*SIGH* Oh Ash, that was so sweet and lovely. I just love, love, love the Winter Prince! What a treat for us Ash lovers. It was too short for my liking. I could read ANYTHING from Ash's POV. This was the first time Ash realizes he's falling in love with Meghan, they're in the Iron Realm and they are fighting a vicious dragon but still, he's thinking about her and of course saving her from that bad, bad dragon. He's struggling internally with the consequences of falling in love with the Summer ...more

ревью на русском/review in russian

A few pages from Ash's POV. I'm glad to see the kissing scene from another perspective, 'cause in The Iron King all happened too fast. It was really cute. The 24219472th kiss for him and the first for her. Romantic!)

BTW, I'm jealous of every Ash's thought of Ariella. Yup. He loved her and she's dead and can we just move on? Cruel me. Seems like I fell for this dark prince and became inadequate. If you are interested in Winter's Prince too, don't fo

Leer este POV después de acabar con la serie hace que me den mis feelings porque recuerdo como luchó Ash contra sus sentimientos al comprender que estaba enamorado de Meghan.

Oh Ash...
I guess I ship Ash and Meghan more than I ship Puck and Meghan but, to be honest, I don't care about either as a romantic interest yet. Maybe I'm alone in this. Puck is just definition friend zone in my opinion. It just seems like any romantic interaction would make me cringe since it would radiate of awkwardness.

As for Ash, I just don't get why Meghan is falling all over him. The guy has been nothing but a jerk to her! Granted, it was nice to see something from Ash's POV, and I feel a bit bette

*swoon* Oh Ash! <3
This was incredibly soppy but not enough so that I cringed inwardly which should be considered a compliment. It was a very cute little story in Ash's POV. I don't really remember much of the scene in the Iron King because I haven't read this series in such a long time but it reminded me of how much I loved it when I read it the first time, perhaps this calls for a re-read.
Michele (Reading Lark/CanadianTwiMom)

Just this little tidbit from where the story began made me realize how much I missed this world and Ash and Meghan! Meghan & Ash's love story was EPIC and going back to that first kiss, and reading that scene from Ash's perspective, when Ash realized he loved her...*happy sigh*

I'm always in my happy place reading anything from Julie and The Iron Fey. Thanks Julie! LOVED it!

Meh, I like Ash, but this feels so insta-lovey. I mean really... you people have known each other a few days. Despite that it was a cute kiss and there's no arguing that Ash is dreamy, but still...the insta-love... it irks me so much.

I loved them all, yeah yeah, I know. But oh my God, I seriously love these extras.

The First Kiss is the scene from Ash's POV. Because of the fast paced story and the huge amount of excitement on that point in the story, this extra is a nice insight. It is absulotely lovely to see how Ash experienced the first kiss with Meghan. To read the emotions of a young man, fae and prince of the Unseelie court when kissing and falling in love with Meghan, princess of the Seelie court.

This was a good short from Ash's point of view, and recaps the kiss scene in The Iron King. I think I actually enjoyed it more from Ash's perspective though!

I just love it when authors do a scene from another character's point of view. You get to feel all the emotions that actually happened in that exact moment.

Thank you Julie Kagawa for this :)

"Ella era todo lo que imaginaba, todo lo que quería. Por primera vez desde que murió Ariella, podía sentir de nuevo. Amaba a Meghan Chase...y no podía tenerla."

Algún día voy a cansarme de leer así sea una sola hoja de Ash? Never!!!!

A bit tooooooo fast... Wasn't Aah supposed to dislike her a bit more? A couple of days and he's in love... Don't Know How I feel about that.

Cute Kiss scene.
