Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the

Meghan and Ash's UNBORN CHILD?

Excuse me while I try to breathe.


Edit (11/8/12):
Reading this made me realize how much I've missed Ash and Meghan. They're just so perfect together. Gahh. Also, Kagawa's wonderfully creative mind strikes again. I really liked that transition part where Meghan enters the Dream Pool, and of course the Wishing Tree was lots of fun too (big snakes yay)! The Lost Prince was kind of ehhh for me, since I didn't really like reading from Ethan's POV. It makes me wonder w
For once, I'm speechless. I have nothing to say about this book. If you could see my facial expressions and hear how fast my heart was beating, then you'd know exactly what I thought of it. But I'm just going to leave a little letter here to Julie Kagawa:

Dear Julie,

Thank you. Thank you for letting me experience one last adventure with some of my favourite characters ever written. Thank you for taking the time to write a short story that shows a glimpse into what occurred next. Thank

“Well,” Puck said cheerfully, forcing a rather pained smile, “it's just like old times, isn't it? You, me, ice-boy, the future of the Nevernever hanging in the balance…we just have to wait for Furball to show up and then it’ll be perfect.” “He is already here, Goodfellow,” came a familiar voice behind us, sounding bored and offended all at once. “Where he has been for much of the conversation, waiting for you to see past the end of your nose.” “Yep.” Puck sighed as we all turned to face Grima

Please hold I'm currently freaking out.

Seriously, why do these novellas just keep shoving so much god damn cuteness in my face?!?
So much Ash and Meghan in this novella.
The unborn child.
This novella takes you on like a kiddy version roller coaster of emotions. I loved the whole damn ride. I ate all of these novellas up like a starved child. This was the perfect ending for Ash and Meghan. I needed it. Everyone needed it. THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDED IT.

Final rating: 3.75/5 stars

Mortals! Yes, I am talking to you as a mortal myself! As someone who completed the journey to Nevernever, I have a warning to make:
- Those who have read this may know everything and nothing about The Lost Prince.
- Those who are interested in completing this journey and start a new one should see the contents of this book.
- Those who do not wish to venture further into Nevernever, should never read the book.
- And those who are interested in the future of The Lost Prince,

SO MUCH ASH AND MEGHAN CUTENESS!!!! This book is too brilliant to put into words - all those sobbing episodes you all had at the end of Iron Knight when you realised that yes, Ash was back, but no, you wouldn't get to read more about him and his smexy self...they were all worth it!! Because Julie has come back with a story that is full of adventure, humour, Puck-ness (:D), foreboding and of course LOVE.

If you weren't Team Ash before, prepared to be now. Personally, I'm fence-sitting...I love Pu

This was the epilogue fans deserved of Ash and Meghan. We see our favourite couple go on one last adventure with Puck and Grimalkin about the future of Ash and Meghan's family and it was great to read. It also answers a lot of questions I had during the Lost Prince, so I kinda wish I'd read this first! However I'm going to be way more informed for The Iron Traitor now. ...more

Now I know as much as I knew before reading this.
Perhaps if I read it before starting the spin-off series, it would be useful to find out about prophecy, but since I only have The Iron Warrior to finish the series, I am officially late for the train.

So yet another short story in the world of the Iron Fey. This one takes place after the 4th book. Make sure you read the 4 books prior other wise there are many many spoilers.

Of the short stories I found this one to be the most pointless.

Basically the Oracle shows up and says I have a prophecy for you, come find me. And we go on another adventure with Meghan, Ash, Puck, & Grim. (Gang's all here!), but there is so little adventure.

Eventually Meghan receives the prophecy and decides wahwah the fu

Just when I was finally okay with letting these characters go, I read Iron Prophecy and all I want is to read about them even more!
But at last, Ash, Meghan and Puck's story is done and I'm excited about Ethan's series so this was a brilliant treat!

RE-READ ¦ is this a re-read? for some reason it's not marked as read, even though i'm 90% sure I read it. well either way i'm reading it now I guess.


Um maybe this wasn't a re-read after all because I didn't remember anything, that or I just forgot everything which is also a strong possibility.

I loved this! I was so happy to have everyone back together that I had to try really hard to hold in a squeal while I was reading (it was the middle of the night and my husband was sleeping).

Yay! I love seeing Meghan and Ash together as a couple. I greatly missed Meghan in The Iron Knight and it is nice to see a part of the life that she and Ash have after being married. They are getting ready for the first Elysium that Meghan has gone to as the Iron Queen but she is feeling a little weird nausea and almost fainting….hmmm wonder what that could be.

The oracle that once asked for Ash and Meghan’s first born has bad news about their progeny and they must journey to her for the answers

First off, I would like to thank Julie Kagawa for giving us this novella, in which we get to have a glimpse into Meghan and Ash's life together!!! I loved The Iron Knight, but nonetheless I wanted MORE. Due to Kagawa's brilliant writing, I fell in love with not just the Nevernever, but with Ash and Meghan, and I was beyond thrilled to find that there would be a novella about them!

Mai is a Happy Bibliophile

Hmmm... Not as epic as the Iron Knight but still a good read. Though I must say...

One word: MISS.

I will miss the cait saith, Grim.
I will miss Puck's pranks and funny moments.
I will miss Meghan's stubborness.
I will miss the wonderful world of Nevernever.
I will miss the adventures.
I will definitely miss Ash. :D

The Iron Prophecy is a novella written by Julie to highlight and tell the readers what happened next after Meghan and Ash's royal union. There's really no Happily Ever After
Iron's Prophecy was interesting. I don't think it really fit as an ending novella to The Iron Fey series. It probably would work better as a prequel for the spinoff, since I suspect the Oracle's prophecy is going to one of the main conflicts of that series. Either way, I did like this glimpse into Meghan's life as the Iron Queen. Things can't stay peaceful for long, so of course the Oracle has to pop up and freak everyone out over something that might happen. Meghan has a tough decision to make ...more

Ok, I'm not even sure if I want to leave my review with the others who seem to love this novella. Unfortunately, it fell flat for me. I'm sure people will read my review and think I'm crazy, but we all don't have to agree. So here goes...

Iron's Prophecy was between an ok and a like for me. I was definitely disappointed. The story was totally pointless in my opinion. It just gave us a tiny peek at life after Iron Knight with a bunch of hogwash surrounding that. I guess it could be setting up f

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).
