Review: Summer's Crossing by Julie Kagawa
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.
I really enjoyed the Iron Fey books. How exciting to have this novella insight into Puck and his head. :) I love Puck. And the cover here? Gorgeous, just like the rest of them. I have to admit that I sort of feel like I was deprived with this novella. Novella = Short. The rest of the books were long and filling yet still left me wanting more. This novella was like having the first bite and then having it taken away. Still wanting it all. Do you know what I'm saying? Sigh. The one bite was sure good though.
