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 of her father, King Oberon–who was gravely injured defending Meghan from the Iron Fey.

Yet Meghan and Ash’s detour does not go unnoticed. They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter–a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat….

This is a short story set between book one and book two of the iron fey series. As this is only 49 pages this review won’t be very long…

Kagawa doesn’t waste time in this novella and we are almost immediately drawn back into the world of the Iron Fey. I once again enjoyed her writing style which is both descriptive and easy to read. I particularly enjoyed her description of the ‘Big Bad Wolf’, which was both terrifying and intriguing.

Being able to experience how Meghan’s and Ash’s relationship developed during their trip to the winter court was nice. I also enjoyed seeing more of how Ash was feeling towards Meghan and his internal struggle of having to choose between his loyalties to his court and his love for Meghan.

This short story doesn’t really add to the series as much of what happens in it are recapped in flashbacks in the Iron Daughter (book 2), however, if you enjoy Ash and Meghan moments you should definitely read this as it helps to see how their relationship develops on their journey to the winter court.
