Description: Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way. But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.” Now Meghan faces a devastating choice that may determine the future of all fey—and her and Ash’s unborn child…

I'm a sucker for The Iron Fey series. I don't normally read novella's, but I always want more of this world. This short little story was perfect.
I love the little glimpse of Meghan's life as the Iron Queen. The little quirks that make this kingdom run are interesting. I enjoyed the little bit of interaction we get between Ash and Meghan. It seems I can't get enough of the relationship between these two. They have gone farther than most couples just to stay together.
I think what I liked most about this story is that it's an excellent bridge between the Iron Fey series and the new series Call of the Forgotten. When I read the first book in the series, I kind of felt there was a jump in time and that I might have missed something. I didn't know this book existed. I think it explains a lot.
So, in short...if you like the Iron Fey series, you'll like this short story. And, if you plan on reading the new spin off series, you'll want to read this book.
