Winter's Passage, Julie Kagawa


Name: Winter's passage
Author: Julie Kagawa.
Series: The Iron Fey Book 1.5
Publisher: Harlequin
Format: Kindle.
Pages: 59 pages.
About the author:
ulie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.
Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon puppy.
Where can you buy it:

What goodreads says:
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....
My opinion:
I love these books and the way Julie writes, so it doesn't come as a surprise that I loved this one. After ice prince Ash helped Meghan Chase fend away the Iron Fey in book one she has to keep her promise, that she will go back to Ash's homeland to see his mum, Queen Mab.
But on the way Meghan asks Ash to take her to see Puck who is inside a tree recuperating after a terrible injury. Ash agrees, of course and takes her. Only to be encountered with a Hunter who is chasing them.
I loved the hunter and all the time in my head a song was sining (who's afraid of the big bad wolf?)
Ash is unnaturally cold towards Meghan the closer they get to Winter Court the colder he becomes.
A short story but worth reading if you like this series.
I give it 4 stars.
