Mommy's Reading Break

I'll read almost anything if it sounds good, but I tend to read mostly YA, and a lot of those are paranormal or dystopian. I have started to branch out into more contemporary lately.

Winter's Passage - Julie Kagawa I actually got Winter’s Passage as a Kindle freebie a couple years ago. At the time, I had never even heard of The Iron Fey series. However, after reading The Iron King, I needed just a little more before moving on to review books, so I picked up this novella.Winter’s Passage picks up right at the end of The Iron King, when Ash comes to bring Meghan back to his mother, Queen Mab. She requests to just check on Puck before she goes. Since Meghan lives in Kentucky, and Puck is in a tree in New Orleans, the easiest way to get there is to go through the Nevernever. As the are crossing through the Wyldwood, they sense something chasing them. The rest of the Winter’s Passage is their journey to the Winter Court as the mysterious Hunter gives chase.I thought that Winter’s Passage was a nice little story to put in between books 1 and 2 of the series, but that it wasn’t really necessary. It was nice to see some old friends (the dryads and Grimalkin) and to learn that there is always more going on in the Nevernever than we see or even expect, but at just 49 pages, it was a little too short for me to really get invested in anything. Just when I felt like things were getting good, it ended.Overall, I thought that Winter’s Passage was a good little filler story if you’re just looking for more, and the ending definitely made me anxious to see what would happen in the next book, but it isn’t something that I would say you had to read.You can also read this and other reviews on my blog: Mommy's Reading Break
