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.

“That’s weird, considering you’re an ice prin—” I didn’t get any further, as Ash leaned in and kissed me.”

“Well,” Puck said cheerfully, forcing a rather pained smile, “it’s just like old times, isn’t it? You, me, ice-boy, the future of the Nevernever hanging in the balance…we just have to wait for Furball to show up and then it’ll be perfect.” “He is already here, Goodfellow,” came a familiar voice behind us, sounding bored and offended all at once. “Where he has been for much of the conversation, waiting for you to see past the end of your nose.” “Yep.” Puck sighed as we all turned to face Grimalkin. “Just like old times.”

 

 

What did I think about these novellas?

Winter’s Passage was such a cute story actually. In the first novel Meghan succeeds in rescuing her little brother from the first Iron King. But Prince Ash of the Winter Court helped her. For a promise Meghan can’t break. She must return with him to the Winter Court. But not without a detour to visit Puck/Robin Goodfellow. He is her best friend and got greatly injured by her father, Lord Oberon, King of the Summer Court. This was when Ash and Meghan declared their love for each other. As to the rules, Winter and Summer may not mingle and fall in love with each other. When you think about that fact, Puck was very brave and selfless. As he loves Meghan too. This novella is about the adventure of Meghan and Ash, along with Puck from the world as we know it to the Winter Court. But don’t forget the foe the meet on their journey. The biggest and baddest one can be. A story of fear and bravery, love and adventure. Not going to spoil everything, but Puck’s injury’s story was kind of necessary I thought ^^

Another novella, now in Summer Court. A story of two frenemies working together for the same girl. Written from the POV of Puck, a refreshing insight tbh. I love the POV of Meghan, but it’s always fun to read how other characters think. Especially when they, Puck, are given an important decision. Will he betray Ash and win Meghan for himself? Or will Puck work with Ash, let Ash win the girl, and pull off the greatest and most unthinkable prank there would be to pull off… In the heart of the Summer Court…

Iron’s Prophecy, the last novella in this bundle.WOW WOW WOW…. It gives us a pretty good clue what the next novel Call of the Forgotten: The Lost Prince is about. Oh my God, baby talk from Meghan and Ash!! But that’s a damn dark prophecy….damn again… I love how this story goes.. From a dark weird prophecy to finding out what the future beholds. A darker adventure than before… But like Ash says you can change the future. So for the Call of the Forgotten books: will he of will he not destroy the Nevernever? I must say, by the way, that I already love how Kierran is written by Julie Kagawa!!

So all in all, three marvelous stories that definitely add a lot to the main story. I love it!!

xoxo
