Teaser Tuesday: The Iron Legends by Julie Kagawa

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

The Iron Legends by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Legends - Harlequin Teen

Everyone says the Summer Queen is stunning, beautiful, absolutely captivating. Yeah, I guess she is, but so is a volcanic eruption, and probably less volatile.
-- Summer’s Crossing, Chapter 4

How very chliché. Why can’t it be the third nephew twice removed who’s fated to destroy the world?
-- Iron’s Prophecy, Chapter 4

Usually, I dislike in-between stories or chapters that form part of the canon, but aren’t necessary to understand it. Sometimes, they are not easy to get a hold of, but this hadn’t been the case for Winter’s Passage and Summer’s Crossing. Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series has been different for me. Suddenly, I didn’t mind that the last book was from a different point of view and I certainly didn’t mind the additional stories between the individual books. I’m glad that they are now available as a companion piece as they enrich the story while not forcing you to read them. However, if you already have the first two novellas, this publication is a little bit redundant, even with the added bits and pieces. Yet it is the third, Iron’s Prophecy,  story that will be the bridge to the second cycle and offer the connection to The Lost Prince. And it does look nice with the other books ...

What are you reading this week? And what are your thoughts on additional novellas between individual books?
