Today I’m excited to host a review for the WinterHaven Sleigh Tour. This week WinterHaven and a great group of sleigh bloggers are posting our choice of a Winter Book Review. To see who else is on the sleigh, you can go to our WinterHaven Sleigh Tourpage for a list of participating blogs.
My winter book choice is Winter's Passage by Julie Kagawa
Not only does this Novella contain a frosty theme, but it takes the reader deeper into the world of the Iron Fey realm that Kagawa has so masterly crafted. The story is just the right length to wrap yourself up in a warm blanket and snuggle up with a warm cup of cocoa, and escape into another world until the next load of laundry is ready to be thrown into the dryer.
This is a continuation of The Iron King that leads up to the second novel, The Iron Daughter. Ash, the Winter prince made a promise to Mab, queen of Winter Court, to bring Meghan Chase to her. She wanted to use her as leverage against Oberon, king of the Summer Court, and her father. She made a bargain with the Winter prince: help her rescue her brother and she would go with him to the Winter Court. Once a faery promised something, they were obligated to fulfill their end of the bargain. There was only one problem. Summer and Winter were not supposed to fall in love, (Squee!) and the icy prince has fallen for the half-breed princess.
Meghan asked to do something before he delivered her to the Icy queen, and that was to see Puck. Along their journey they were being chased by an unknown enemy, pushed to their limits and despite the obstacles, they had each other . Ash showed his protective side, despite his inner turmoil. I just got all warm thinking about him and his silver eyes. This adventure is one you won't want to miss out on. Sweet warming romance, action and adventure all wrapped up into a pretty little package.
