Synopsis: (from Goodreads)
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....An e-book exclusive story from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.
Meghan Chase is half-faery daughter of King Oberon of the Summer Court. She had just come back from the Nevernever, a mythical place where faery-folk dwell, to save her brother from the evil iron fey--a different race of fairies that evolved from the increase of science and technology. During her rescue mission, she had some help from Ash who is a prince from the Winter Court (the Summer Court's enemy). But his help came with a condition--she would willingly go with him to Winter Court because as King Oberon's daughter she is a perfect pawn in the ongoing war between the two courts. Staying true to her promise, Meghan and Ash journey through the Nevernever once again. However, a hunter is on their trail; a hunter that will put both in danger.
This awesome read is a great continuation of Meghan's story. Despite its length, it was as exciting as The Iron King and a nice quick read to tide me over until the release of The Iron Daughter, the next book in the trilogy. To tell the truth, I am a bit anxious of what might happen between Ash and Meghan in The Iron Daughter because Ash will have to act rude towards her to hide his feelings for Meghan. On the other hand, I'm very excited and I am totally invested in this series. If you read The Iron King and crave more of Meghan's beautiful world of faeries, I highly recommend you reading this novella! 4 out of 5 stars
