Winter's Passage (The Iron Fey #1.5)
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 o...more
Oh Ash... *sigh*... he is amazing ♥
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

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...more
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...more
This novella, clocking in at only 52 pages, was a nice way to jump back into the Iron Fey world, and I was still very much impressed by Julie Kagawa's faery world. Her fey and their worl...more

My review now also appears on Reading Lark: http://readinglark.blogspot.com/2012/...
This is really an excellent bridge between the fabulous first two books in The Iron Fey series, both of which I absolutely adored.
I LOVED that this little short-story was about Meghan & Ash's journey to the Unseelie Court... not only the physical journey but also their romantic/emotional journey.
Meghan is starting to fully embrace her fey heritage, and with that comes the fact that she takes her contracts se...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...more
Great short story! I loved it. I loved how Meghan kept her part of the deal even after (view spoiler)[the Wolf offered to take her back to the Summer Court--that was a pleasant surprise all by itself, that the wolf had purpose for tracking them, and then didn't even kill them after he found them (or...more

Oh, and another beautiful cover. I too wish this was a physical book to add to my collection!
I enjoyed this quick, little read and it didn't take very long to read. A bit more of a relationship slowly developed between Meghan and Ash, but it is forbidden...more
Where do I begin with this amazing series? This was another that sat on my to read list for far too long before I finally had the chance to pick them up. I have to thank my lovely friend Touya from The Reader's Garden for badgering me until I was completely enthralled with just the idea of reading these books. I devoured all four volumes in a week. Then I went and read all the novellas, (yes, out of order, sorry guys)....more

"Part of me wanted to walk up to him and hug him from behind, and part of me wanted to hurl a snowball at his perfect face to get some kind of reaction."
Winter's Passage is a great short story set in the world of The Iron Fey. I really enjoyed this short novella and I would definitely recommend reading it before starting on the second book in the series, The Iron Daughter.

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...more
Meghan annoyed me a bit because as she's being dragged around the human and fae worlds, she rarely asked questions. This was something that bothered me in the first book but if you're constantly being chased and running for your life wouldn't you stop, even for a few seconds, to find out what the hell is going on? Grimalkin and Ash hinted that they knew who was following but Meghan herself didn't bother to ask. I would at least want to know what I was running away. Ash was h...more
What a wonderful surprise to have discovered A Winter's Passage. This e-book is an Iron Fey novella that takes place between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter.
First off, I really love Kagawa's take on traditional fey mythology. Her world is refreshingly frightening and so easy to get sucked into. I say this because I used to think of my faeries as happy little pixies who reside on the outer suburbs of Disney and whose names rhyme with Dinker Bell.
Yeah, so NOT the same.

Since I've been reading through the series so quickly, I had a hard time remember which events occurred in which books. But Winter's Passage seemed to have a few flaws in my opinion. There were just a couple things that happened that didn't make any sense.

To be honest you could probably enjoy the Iron Fey Series and understand what's going on without ever reading this Novella, especially since some of the scenes within are recapped in the Iron Daughter. However if you enjoyed reading Meghan's story, you wouldn't want to miss even one leg of it and you'll find the short novella worth your time. If you don't have a kindle and therefore don't need the story in a kindle format Kagawa offers a free PDF downlo...more

“That’s weird, considering you’re an ice prin—” I didn’t get any further, as Ash leaned in and kissed me.”
