Review: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 was hesitant to read Summer's Crossing at first. Not because I don't want to read it but I was just too excited to start The Iron Knight. Well, good that I read this first. I didn't know it's in Puck's POV which you would expect to be fun.
Summer's Crossing is a short story about Puck and Ash's adventure to the Summer court. Ash has to keep the other side of the bargain so he's forced to go to Arcadia with Puck's help. However, Puck has to face a difficult decision whether to betray his friend or help him get through.
I think I liked this more than the other short novella. Of course because of Puck! I like witty and fun lines, and adventure that will keep me entertained. This short story gave me that. I'm guessing the purpose of this is for us to get to know Robin Goodfellow more and to let us know that even though the two are frenemies they would always be good friends!
