Winter's Passage by Julie Kagawa
Who's Afraid Of The... !
Having made a deal with Ash, the fey Winter Prince, to return with him to the palace of the Winter fey in return for his help in rescuing her brother Ethan from the Iron fey, Meghan, having had only a moment to say goodbye to her home and family, is once again entering the faery world of the Nevernever.
With Ash as her guide the journey to the fey Winter Palace should have been a simple one, however things get complicated when they find that they are being followed. One of the most ancient, feared and deadly beings to inhabit faery is after Meghan and not even Ash with all his powers will be able to stop this beast. But even if they survive Meghan may still lose the Winter Prince she loves.
Winter's Passage is non stop action from start to finish, picking up exactly where The Iron King ended. Therefore I highly recommend you read that first as this novella draws heavily from that first book in this series. Here we learn that there is more to faery land then just faeries, as ancient beasts of fairy tales are just as real and dangerous than any troll or redcap you may come across in any bar or nightclub.
