Blurb (from Goodreads):

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.

Prince Ash is escorting Meghan Chase, the girl he loves (who is also a half-faery princess and daughter of the Summer King, Oberon) to the Winter Court at Tir Na Nog as promised to Queen Mab. Meghan has to go with him to fulfil her end of the bargain since he helped her retrieve her kidnapped little brother and return him safely home. However, she wants to stop off and check in on her injured friend Robin Goodfellow (aka Puck). On their way, they realise they’re being followed. They manage to shake off their follower for a while and reunite with the faery cat, Grimalkin, while visiting with Puck. They soon set off again with Grimalkin in tow but come upon their predator once again and are forced into a confrontation. When all is said and done, they finally reach the Winter Court and Meghan is unsure about whether she can still trust that Ash’s feelings for her are true, as he distances himself from her once at Court, and whether she can count on him to be there for her while she’s held captive there.

This icy little snippet of what to expect in the second book of the Iron Fey trilogy certainly whet my appetite. Before starting this series, I was so sure I’d be Team Puck (I love my underdogs!). Besides, Puck was my favourite character in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Then along came Prince Ash and, along with Meghan’s, he stole my heart. There’s something about his icy demeanour and internal struggle over his feelings for Meghan that just makes my heart melt every time he’s around Meghan. I expect that’s how most Team Ash supporters feel about this fierce and noble prince. I look forward to seeing what happens in The Iron Daughter.

I love underdogs too, but in this series, Puck feels more like a brother type.

Ash totally stole my heart too! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
