Review: Summer's Crossing (Iron Fey #3.5)

Title: 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 don't know if Ms. Kagawa is trying to be nice and merciful by providing us with this short novella or being cruel and evil for enticing us with such a good story AND then making us wait for The Iron Knight. 

I love Puck's inventiveness, intelligence, sense of humor and loyalty (don't get confused people, I'm still Team Ash!) and it was so nice to read this story from Puck's point of view.  The story begins where The Iron Queen ended, and Puck and Ash need to change their plans to fulfill a promise made by Ash (you might remember why.)  Puck is brilliant in this story and you can see how each of our heroes handles Megan's absence.  I cannot wait to read The Iron Knight and I am so curious to get inside Ash's mind.  His loyalty and his absolute love for Megan is so touching and beautiful.  Below find the gorgeous cover for the Iron Knight, in my humble opinion the best cover yet!
