Review: Winter's Passage 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....
An eBook exclusive story from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.

Winter's Passage is a story set between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter. It follows Meghan and Ash as they travel from the human world to Tir Na Nog, the seat of the Winter Court. 

Picking up right after the end of The Iron King, Ash and Meghan set out, first to visit Puck and then to go to Tir Na Nog.  However, something is following them and they can't seem to hide form it or outrun it. 

This novella was a bit mushy for me. Meghan doesn't seem her spunky self; when she's around Ash she reads as insecure, which, given the situation is understandable, but I missed the old Meghan. 

The threat that they were running from wasn't as exciting as I expected, however, with the different creatures and fey that they met on the way, new dimensions to the Faery world were laid and I really enjoyed the quick exploration of those stories.
Winter's Passage concludes pretty close to the opening of The Iron Daughter.
