Review: Winter's Passage
Harlequin Teen (2010), Kindle Edition
I received this e-book for free by NetGalley.
Julie Kagawa was born in California and when she was a child moved with her parents to Hawaii. Julie has worked in a bookstore (or better, she read the bookstore’s books), after that started a new job as dog trainer, and finally as a writer.
Winter’s Passage is a short novel in the Iron Fey series, although is advisable to read first The Iron King; It’s fatal to fall in love with this writer (her books!) just reading this novel in the middle and half of the series.
Winter’s Passage tells the journey of Meghan (a half-faery) and Ash (a princess of the Winter Court). Meghan has promised to return to the Winter Court, but first at all she wants to meet Puck who was injured defending Meghan
... but it’s not important the story, there is a feeling among the words like a music, that you can listen to instead of read. A faery’s music meaning a reminder for your fantastic desires.
The Wolf of the cover: ‘I’m the Wolf ... I was in stories long before the humans knew my name ... My stories outnumber all the tales ever told, and you cannot kill me.’ (p. 34)
Eventually is fair to reread William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends
