From Goodreads: A Midsummer’s Nightmare? Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon’s right hand, bane of many a faery queen’s existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl’s death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone’s come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck’s help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.
This is a must read for all those reading the Iron Fey series. This short novella not only adds to the series as a whole, but also extends the story, picking up right where The Iron Queen left off (and boy, that book’s ending made me mad), connecting Ash and Puck once more as they go off on a journey to find Grimalkin, for reason’s Ash is none too forthcoming about. However, before they can get too far, Ash runs into an old acquaintance who calls in a favor… a practically impossible favor.
I enjoyed this novella. I actually started to dislike Puck a little as I read, which was a first, and Ash began to move more into my good graces… so this was a nice change. I will say that this novella kept my rapt attention with its awesome storyline, especially as it’s a break from Meghan’s story. I really enjoyed every aspect of Summer’s Crossing, aside for Puck being a tool for a bit… but I was happy in the end, and completely ready for the next, and final, book in the series, The Iron Knight. Four stars.
