Book Review: Winter's Passage (Iron Fey #1.5) by Julie Kagawa

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....
I'm not usually a fan of short stories/novellas.  They just aren't enough to satisfy me (click the links to read about my disillusionment with the Bree Tanner book and the Sookie Stackhouse short stories). 

Winter's Passage exceeded my expectations.  The story picks right up where The Iron King left off, with Ash and Meghan traveling from her home to The Winter Court.  I liked Winter's Passage because we get to spend more time with Ash and there is some nice relationship development between he and Meghan.  Is it as good as The Iron King?  No.  It's more of a teaser to get you ready for The Iron Daughter.  Don't read Winter's Passage before you read The Iron King, or you'll spoil it for yourself.

The wolf, and how Meghan referred to him, was a little bit cheesy to me.

The imagery.
