Summary:

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.


An ebook exclusive novella from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.

Review:

Summer’s Crossing picks up right after The Iron Queen. In The Iron Queen, Ash vowed to find a way to be with Meghan no matter what. In Summer’s Crossing, he is about to set off on a journey to fulfill the vow with the help of Puck, who unabashedly invited himself. However, a fey suddenly steps in the way, interrupting Ash and Puck’s plan, to collect a bargain from Ash - one that involves setting up a very dangerous prank top retrieve an object from a very powerful fey from the Summer Court.

The plot covers Ash and Puck’s journey to the Summer Court. As we all know, Puck + Ash = Neverending amusement, so their constant banters and Puck’s infamous pranks provide for a very entertaining read. I just wish this was a novel instead of a novella. I love reading from Puck’s point of view. Here, readers get to take a glimpse on how Puck truly and still feels for Meghan. I know Iron Fey readers already know that he’s deeply in love with her, and was really hurt when Meghan chose Ash over him. But as he is Robin Goodfellow and is known for being awfully cheerful and sarcastic, sometimes, it is easy to forget that he’s still in love with her in a romantic way. And is actually capable of being hurt.

Summer’s Crossing is a perfect read for all Iron Fey lovers out there, whether you’re on Team Puck or Team Ash. You may download this for free from Halrequin ebooks.

  1. Still have to read this series. It's always a good sign when a short novella from an author can garner as much praise as an actual book in the series!

  2. I haven't read this series but the reviews for both the novels and the novellas are always so high. I know sometimes novellas aren't as great as novels but Kagawa seems to do a super job with both. Puck and Ash both sound like terrific characters and I like that this one is from their POV.

  3. I love love love this novella. I almost love it more than reading from Meghan's POV. Puck's version of Puck is my favorite and I loved him getting to begin mending his friendship with Ash and having them talk.

    I need to reread this, actually.
