Review: Summer's Crossing (The Iron Fey #3.5)
Title: Summer's Crossing (The Iron Fey #3.5)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Rating: 5/5 stars
I read this little novella right after I finished The Iron Queen. It's only available as an ebook so right now I'm really thanking my Mom for buying me a Kindle even though I told her I really didn't want one. (I use it all the time too!)
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.
Love that we get into Puck's head! That's definitely not something I was expecting. I thought since the ending of The Iron Queen and the Iron Knight were all going to be from Ash's POV so would Summer's Crossing, but nope we get the whitty, charming Puck!
Even though it was so short, I love this story because there's so much banter between Ash and Puck, and I always enjoy that.
I do have to say it scared me because I had to question Puck's morals a few times but I can see why Julie had to do that. I think most people would think/feel the same way Puck does if they were in that situation. I was wondering how he was taking the whole Meghan situation and I'm glad I finally got an insight into his head.
I do have to say that this story was very interesting, hilarious, and so much fun I loved every minute of it!
