Rating: 4 stars
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.
Summer’s Crossing was a fun read in The Iron Fey series. It was a good tide over between The Iron Queen and The Iron Knight. While I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the other books in the series, it was still a great novella.
I loved the action and story line. It definitely was great. I was really not sure how things would turn out – especially with all the twists Kagawa throws in there. I was not as crazy about the writing in this one – I think it was because Puck was the narrator and everything felt more like a joke.
Summer’s Crossing gave a lot of insight into characters. I felt like I got to know both Ash and Puck much better through their actions in Summer’s Crossing. I can’t wait to see how everything plays out in The Iron Knight following the action in this one.
This is a novella to definitely read. It was not my most favorite of Kagawa’s works thus far, but it is still a good read.
