Winter's Passage by Julie Kagawa

Summary (goodreads):
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. 

 They have caught the attention of an ancient, powerful hunter--a foe that even Ash may not be able to defeat....

A short novella that takes us on the journey with Meghan and Ash to the Winter Court.  While this was an extremely short novella, it was a nice bridge between the first and second book in the series.

For all you Team Ash out there, you get more time with Ash and Meghan and there were some pretty sweet moments mixed in there. As for us Team Puck, there wasn't much for us in this one. Though I was rooting for his return! Ash spills details about the bitter feud between him and Puck and was kind enough to warn Meghan. But of course, Meghan being Meghan, she didn't bother to listen very well. Poor girl, he has centuries of experience ahead of you, listen to the boy! 

And of course Meghan gets chased. It was a pretty intense scene, but the end of the scene left me confused. Very very confused. 

Unfortunately that's all I can say about it without packing it with spoilers. It's not extremely necessary to read, since a lot of it is repeated again the beginning of the second book, but like I said, it was was a nice bridge between the two.
