This is a very short (and free) story about what happened to Gareth's mother.  It's a story that has so much potential; I wish the authors would've fleshed out this story more --more showing and less telling.  It also makes me wonder how certain characters (won't spoil it for you by saying who) in Armored Hearts weren't sick as well.

Like all shorts, and especially prequel shorts, this is really nothing more than a tease. Well written, with an epic fantasy feel. Fae, pixies, magic, guardian wolves. It also contains a preview of the next full novel "Armored Hearts". Why only 4 stars? The main character, Ansleigh, has her name misspelled at one point.

I really enjoyed reading Winter Fae, I only gave it 4 stars because I wished it was a little longer. I think it's a great way for someone to start the series. I will most differently be reading Armored Hearts.

I thought this was amazing novella that leaves you wanting more. As lessons are learned that if you give up your birthright that it is to hard to come back and be excepted by them. As Ansleigh comes back to get the help her son Tristan and her need but finds out her mother is gone and it was because of her. Can Ansleigh find the help she needs for her and her son? Or will they be told to leave? If you want to find out pick up your copy today. I was glued to the pages of this short novella that brings you to Armored Hearts. I cannot wait to read Armored Hearts.

Winter Fae is an exhilarating and intriguing start to a breath-taking story that expertly and beautifully weaves the streampunk and fantasy genres into a unified story of love, magic, and the boundless power of the human spirit. Through Winter Fae we are given a powerful and heart-breaking glimpse into the background of this story, and the foundation that is laid before you is one that you will not soon forget. The characters are as beautiful and delicate as magic and yet very humanly familiar. They will touch your heart and leave a beautiful mark after they are gone from the stage of Winter Fae. However, those that depart from the main stage are never really forgotten. They live in the ones that go after them. Winter Fae set a very high bar for the rest of this story, and I was so pleased to see Amored Hearts meet and far exceed that bar for the continuation of this exquisitely masterful and deeply touching story. I am so excited to see what’s next for us!

This is a very short read and leaves you wanting more. It is a prequel to the next book Armored Hearts. From the start my heart went out to Ansleigh and her son Tristan. After leaving her land to live with the humans she discovers its not all it supposed to be and tries to return home to the family she left behind. But are they willing to forgive? Will her parents welcome her back? Didn't want to stop reading...I look forward to more

Despite the fact that this was a short story, it said more in those few pages than some hundred-something page books I've read. The writing is beautifully detailed, and I really felt as if I was watching a movie in my mind, with every detail in perfect place. Nothing was missing.  This book is a prequel to Armored Hearts, and has me beyond intrigued to read further. The cover itself is gorgeous and fits the story beautifully. This prequel opens with the returning home of a fairy princess named Ansleigh, who is suffering from living in the human world. Ansleigh made a bargain with the Unseelie for a love of sorts, yet it turned out horrible, and she needed the healing powers of her mother and her fathers approval to return home. She arrives with her two-year-old son, Tristan..and despite the beauty of where she once lived, things aren't as they once were. Much heartbreak lies ahead for Ansleigh and some of it she feels is all her fault.  I really do recommend this book; it may be short, but its so beautifully written that its worth the read. I can't wait to read Armored Hearts!

I felt really bad for Tristan and his Mom right from the beginning, them being turned away from their family like that wasn't nice even though I can understand why it was done..  I haven't personally read many short stories but this one has me wanting to read more, I really want to see what will happen to Tristan after his new discovery!

First the short story. Lady Ansleigh Smyth and her two year old son, Tristan. One of the immortal fae, she traded it all for a chance to win the heart of a human, but discovered "You cannot win something that does not exist." She returns home, broken and sick, hoping her family will forgive her and heal her and her son, who cannot walk. This glimpse into the series of Armored Hearts shows a world rife with conflict set between fae and the industrial age, and her tragic story could definitely be a novel on its own, but no, this is the end of her story and the beginning of another. Her son. I was lost in all the thoughts of fae and the repercussions of Ansleigh's choices, I didn't see chapter one coming. Ten years later, we have her son, who now goes by Gareth, sitting in a wheelchair. This first chapter clips past, setting up what Gareth knows & doesn't know, but it snatches us toward the end and leaves us wanting to know more. With the set up in the short story, I'm curious to see what kind of novel this will be. To be honest, I'm more engaged by Ansleigh's story. I would like more information on Gareth's story before I can say yes or no to reading more about him.

This was a really short read. Pretty much it is a prequel to the next book Armored Hearts and it is all about the fae. Pretty much a fairy princess gives up being a heir to live in the human world. Now she learns things are not what she was expecting and wants to return home. But what did it cost her to live with the humans? Can she be forgiven? She needs her mother to help not only herself but her son as well, can her mother do it? This was a great prequel to get you ready for Armored Hearts and the ending makes me for sure want to read the next book. I want to know what is going to happen with Ansleigh's son Tristan!
