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....

An eBook exclusive story from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.
Review:

Winter's Passage picks up exactly where The Iron King ended. This novella tells us the story of Ash and Meghan as they set off on a journey to the Unseelie Court.

With a length of 59 pages, I didn't know what I was expecting when I started reading the e-book. I'm a huge fan of novellas but a journey didn't sound that fascinating to me. But then, my judgment proved to be wrong. Again. As Winter's Passage picked up where The Iron King left, it also picked up the excitement The Iron King brought me. Although in a much lower level, the adventure that Ash and Meghan went through was still exciting and breathtaking.

In this book, aside from adventure and with Puck still unconscious, we also get to see more of Ash and Meghan's struggle with their relationship. This is what I've been waiting to read in The Iron King. And as what I've expected, it totally broke my heart to see Ash get torn between loving Meghan, the princess of Summer Court, and his duty as a prince of the Winter Court.

A couple of very interesting extra characters were introduced in this book as well. I especially loved the one that made a cameo. I didn't expect to see him in the Iron Fey series. But then again, this series is full of surprises! Also, if you think the cover doesn't make sense, wait until you get past the first half then you'll find out why.
