Goodreads 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.
Have I ever mentioned I love Puck? No? Well then, I love Puck! Although, I'm Team Ash all the way, Puck will always have a place in my heart. Shoot, if there's applications available to be his girlfriend, sign me up. How can you not love him? He's humorous, adorable, noble and not to mention, very witty. It's really unfortunate that the past rifted Ash and Puck apart because they could have been such a wonderful duo! Robin Goodfellow is a light-hearted character despite his own battles. As I said before, he is the perfect counterpart for our dark and mysterious Unseelie Prince.
Summer's Crossing happens after the breathtaking ending of The Iron Queen. Ash is setting out to find Grimalkin and Puck invites himself along. Although, their uncertain plans have been put to a stop by none other the Queen of Exiles, Leanansidhe. She came in to call an upaid favor from The Unseelie Prince. I didn't remember Ash calling in a favor but apparently he did and I was as shocked as Puck was. I loved that this book really focused on Puck's wishes and abilities. It was so heartbreakingly sweet that he was doing this for Meghan but I believe he also wanted redemption as well.
This was so much better than Winter's Passage and I really want more Puck books, even just little novellas would be nice! Also, the ending sounds really ominous to me. I can't wait to get started on The Iron Knight.
