So I just read the Lost Prince which is in the same world as the Iron Fey series

Theme of the day:Iron Fey Novellas

So today theme of the day post is a bit different that its not two books but two short novella.Both were oringially ebooks but were renctly put in print along with the story Summers Crossing.I'm only going to talk about two of the novellas since i already posted a reveiw on Summers Crossing Here

In the Iron Legends you can find the  three novellas set in the world of the Iron Fey plus the Guide to the Iron Fey with exclusive information about Julie Kagawa's unforgettable world of Faery.Along with a brief expert from The Lost Prince.

Winter's Passage1.5
Never make a promise to a faery. They always come to collect. Now Meghan Chase must fulfill her promise to Prince Ash of the Winter Court and embark upon a dangerous journey into the heart of enemy territory—while being pursued by a relentless new foe and guarding her own foolish heart. 

So it's been awhile since I've read the first book in the iron fey series so rereading Winter Passage was a bit of a trip and a refresher.When I first read Winter passage it was new and exciting and it  held me over in till the next novel The Iron Daughter.Now even after reading the whole series it stilll feels new and exciting but also like a trip though memory lane.
The Cover: You can tell it's a novella because Meghan isn't on the cover and it has an animal on it.The cover fits with the story nicely and i love how it has a wolf on the cover.
My Thoughts:
 Winter Passage starts right after The Iron King ends.Meaghan has to fulfill her end of the bargain with Ash they encounter resistance and problems in just a few pages, and the story ends with Meghan  at the Winter's Court.4/5

Iron's Prophecy 4.5
Before she ever knew what she might become, Iron Queen Meghan Chase was warned by the oracle that her firstborn child would bring nothing but grief. And even as Meghan and Ash celebrate their long-awaited union, the prophecy stirs.… 

 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
 The Cover:The cover like all the Novella and Novel covers includes vines and like all the Novellas it includes a animal which is a snake.Which i see fitting after reading the short story.
My Thoughts: So unlike Winters Passage and Summer Crossing the Iron's Prophecy was all new to me. It takes place not long after the Iron Knight and way before The Lost Prince.The story is told from Meghan point of view and tells the tale of  her,Pucks and Ash's journey to find out more about the prophecy.I would like to say more but I'm not sure how i could without giving away something.I will say this that this story got me though my Puck and Ash withdrawal and i love how Meaghan got all Queenly and even more bad ass then before.This story answers some questions from The Iron Knight and leaves plenty of more that hopefully be answer in Julie Kagawa's new series featuring Ethan Chase Meaghan little brother.5/5
