Iron's Prophecy (The Iron Fae #4.5) by Julie Kagawa

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…

A novella from the bestselling Iron Fey series
 Yea, yea... I know... I reviewed Ethan's book before this one. Please... like you are shocked that I read out of order... ;)

I got this book when it was free and so I needed to know what else I had missed. We find out that Meghan is pregnant and there is a prophecy about her child. A child of winter, summer and iron. Very powerful.

To me this was more a journey on trusting yourself with the unknown. Although I'm not a parent, I can see that this is also likened to the fear they may have when first learning they are going to add to their family. Will I be a good enough parent? What I do influences the child, so what can I do to make sure they turn out well? And like real life this book does not provide the answers to those questions. It's about trusting yourself and doing the best you can. I also think it sets up what is to come in the books about Ethan. This child is going to play a personal role in his adventures.

I give this novella 4 stars. It works as a in-between book. One that you know will provide you with more questions and answers, but also sets you up for Ethan's book, The Lost Prince. And despite what I do, I DO recommend reading them in order. :D

  4. Hmmmm I've already read the Lost Prince, so it looks like I'll be reading out of order too Melissa. YEAH! *high five* I meant to read this one first, I really did, but it just didn't work out that way. Maybe I was subconsciously channeling you:)

  5. I am reading this before the Lost Prince. I am a parent now and I know what you mean about being afraid. It is terrifying to have the kid and then to spend the rest of your life worrying about them! Who knew!?

  6. I got this because someone said it's helpful to fully understanding things in The Lost Prince. So I plan to read it before. I'm glad to hear it's good and I look forward to reading it!

  9. What? A pregnant Meghan? I didn't see that coming. LOL

    Kidding. Well, since I'm OCD, I will be reading in order...someday. I do miss Meghan and Ash, and it makes me happy to know that their story continues. I hope we get glimpses of them in Ethan's books. Thanks for the rec.
