This was a book of three novella's about the Iron Fey. I enjoyed them and learned some little things in between or after the other books that I didn't know.

I love the little pictures the author added of Ash, Puck and Grim. They are so cute! ❤

I absolutely adore this cover. But, I have to say one thing.



There's no fiery red hair, there's no sly smirk. There's absolutely no Puck-ness about the model portraying Puck. D: It sucks.

Ooh, that rhymed.

Anyways, I've already read Winter's Passage & Summer's Crossing, so I kind of re-read those but to be honest I skimmed through them due to my overwhelming excitement to read Iron's Prophecy. But it felt so good to hang out with the main trio again after the lack of them in The Lost Prince.

Dear God. The Puck on the cover is atrocious. That is not how I pictured him. First of all, WHERE IS HIS RED HAIR? And his expression. It screams, "What the hell is going on." Not, "I'm-so-sexy-I-make-Haleema-uncomfortable."

You know who I think is an excellent Puck?

That's Xavier Samuel Puck.

He has Puck written all over his face. All he needs is pointy ears, red hair, and green eyes.

Is it just me, or does this look vaguely familiar?

Anyway.


Julie.
You've got to be kidding me.
THAT IS NOT, IN ANY WAY, PUCK.
NO.

THAT'S JUST A CASUAL PASSENGER WHO HAPPENED TO WALK BY WHILE YOU WERE TAKING A PICTURE OF ASH AND MEGHAN. THAT'S IT, ISN'T IT? I MUST BE RIGHT.
This casual passenger's expression screams "what the fuck is happening", while my Puck's would be like, "hey there, what's up? I know I'm hot, stop drooling."
SO I THINK I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. PUCK WAS ON HIS WAY BUT SINCE HE'S, WEL

These stories are very quick reads and just fill in some of the story between the main novels.
Some important information is revealed for the next spin-off books and I did enjoy the guide at the back. Other than that , not really necessary to read them.
Kristalia
Final rating: 3.5/5 stars

FIRST OF ALL: I would really suggest that you read these specials in their right order. And to read them too, without skipping because these short stories impact the main plot and it will make you understand some things later on.
There were some interesting information about the world building and customs and characters and it was fun to read about. I love Julie Kagawa and her talent for writing :D

UNBELIEVABLE.
HOW COULD YOU DO THIS, MS. JULIE??
THIS IS A FREAKIN' CLIFFHANGER!

How could you end a novella like THAT? Especially of ASH's and MEGHAN's...ummm..story??

Un-freaking-believable.
I think I just died there a little, Julie.
And this isn't funny.
I'm going crazy. With capital K.

Winters Passage:

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

I only read one of the short stories. I plan on reading the rest in the future.

1. Winter's Passage. I know Meghan is trying to be all noble and stuff, but she appears really stupid. She should take Ash's warning and run with it, literally. 4 stars

Okay, so I have a story to go with The Iron Legends. So after I bought it, I did some happy dancing, a little drooling, and a LOT of fangirling.

In case you didn't know, I absolutely VIOLATED my copy of The Iron Legends. See:

By the end of the day there were a lot more Post-It flags. A LOT. But anyways, when I was in the process of violating my copy of The Iron Legends (color coded with kissing scenes, pictures, pretty scenes, and new characters) my couch ate my Post-It flags! One m

I'm so sad that this series is over :( I'm gonna miss it so much. It's so amazing and it's one of my favorite series now.
I gave Winter's Passage 5/5 Lily Pads because it was amazing and Meghan and Ash are my OTP.
I also gave Summer's Crossing 5/5 Lily Pads because it was awesome and I loved reading in Puck's POV. The only thing I hated was how short it was. After I read the last sentence I was like "That's It?"
And then finally of course I gave Iron's Prophecy 5/5 Lily Pads because it was an amaz

Winter's Passage

This was really boring. Meghan has to travel to the Winter Court with Ash for some reason or other, naturally they have to fight bad guys on their journey and angst about their oh so fragile feelings for each other.
Meghan was so blah — all she did was think about how much she wuved Ash even when he was treating her like shit. Of course, he claims to only treat her like dirt to protect her… puhleaze… He was a bastard because he loved being a dick to a sixteen year old gir

Brilliant.

Seriously, you'd think it's a waste to buy a book that only contains extra short stories but this one's really, really worth it. Kagawa can write 5million more adventures of the trio, and Grimalkin, of course, and I'll buy and read it all.

There'll be The Iron Fey Series spoilers so beware!

Puck *sighs dreamily* Puck is still the greatest prankster of all time. I was a bit scared thinking about how he'll react when he saw Meghan again. That, and the news she carried. I should've known he

Lovely addition to the Iron Fey series. I loved going back to that world for a few additional adventures. I really hope the last story was the set up for the spin of series (that I still have to read), because that would be awesome. The addition of the survival guide was amazing, I've laughed out loud a few times reading those few pages.

The first two stories were a bit boring but the third was a nice set-up for the new trilogy.
Michele (Reading Lark/CanadianTwiMom)

The Iron Legends, I think, is an anthology that many TIF fans have long been waiting for and it was so worth the wait! Not only do we finally get printed copies of Julie Kagawa's two fabulous novellas previously released in ebook format, Winter's Passage and Summer's Crossing, but new stuff too!! A new novella, Iron's Prophecy, which serves as a bridge from the original Iron Fey books to Julie's new trilogy The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, featuring Ethan (Meghan's younger brother all grown

So I think I need to get something out of my system first...
That Puck on the cover is not Puck! He's a Puck wannabe! Where is Puck's read hair and while I was looking at the cover I thought his eyes were blue (I'm not sure if they are just extremely light green or actually blue). He also looks like he's glaring at Meghan or he's in pain. No! That is not Puck. I...I'm disappointed. There was a better Puck on the back of my copy of The Iron Knight!

Ok I'm done.

So I already read Winter's Passage and

Ash. *beams* it's always been you...! Ahem.

Well, I've read Winter's Passage and Summer's Crossing on separate occasions. Winter's was intriguing while Summer's was hilarious. As for the Iron Prophecy, it was a perfect short story to follow The Iron Knight. If you read Ash's story, then you know how much you still want to know about Ash and Meghan after Ash's incredible journey to the End of the World.

The Iron Legends answered some of the lingering questions I had. Add to that the newly impr

I need this actual book comprised of three novella's, the guide to Nevernever and an excerpt of The Lost Prince. So full of amazing stories and goodies for us to treasure always. I really enjoyed reading all the character bio's, the descriptions of each Kingdom and about the Nevernever as a whole. Such a great book that I recommend to all those who have read The Iron Fey series. Next for this series is a BLOODY MOVIE DEAL!! That would be EPIC!!

I always wanted the novelas to be in print so I could add them to my collection, so hurray for this book!

As always I like the title, I like the details of the cover... I just don't like the models. That is not my Ash, or Puck, or Meghan really. I don't know, it's a weird photo. I think the one that looks the best and in character is Puck. He looks very Fae. Overall not my favorite cover, my least favorite I would have to say, but again it isn't horrible.

I was so excited to read this because I didn't wanted to leave Nevernever yet but this turned out quite as a disappointment :( I didn't really liked the first story, and I skipped most of Puck's story too (because I still can't really connect with him and I think his story was boring). Only the last story was okay, and it makes me curious for The Lost Prince (which I won't be reading soon since I do not have the second and last book from COTF) but that's about it. 2 stars.

Ooooohhhhh im so excited about this but only because of the IRON PROPHECY novella 'cause it takes place after the IRON KNIGHT novel and I really want to know more about what happened after that ...especially in PUCK, ASH and MEGHAN so yeah I can't for this... no seriously I'm dying here waiting....
