I have been craving more from Julie’s Iron Fey world, and this novella that takes place between the 1st book, the Iron King, and the 2nd book, the Iron Daughter, fits the bill.
In the Iron King, Meghan had made a contract with Ash to return with him to Tit Na Nog and his Queen mother in exchange for his help in finding and freeing her brother, Ethan. Ethan is now safely back at home and Meghan is scared of what the Queen, Ash’s mother, will do to her but she is resigned to her fate trusting Ash to keep her safe. She has one more request of Ash: that she be allowed to see her childhood friend, Robin Goodfellow, aka Puck, one more time before proceeding to the Winter Court. Along the way, they find that they are being followed by the feared Hunter. How is Puck? Who is this Hunter? Will they safely make it to the Winter Court before their pursuer catches them?
I really enjoyed this! I especially loved the scenes when it was just Meghan and Ash as the sexual tension between them was palpable. It’s short, only about 50 pages, but so good!
