Summers Crossing Novella
by Julie Kagawa
Published June 2011
**Available as an e-book only**
Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.
I really enjoy the world that the author has created (and adapted from famous literature.) This story is told from the veiwpoint of Robin Goodfellow and takes place directly at the end of "Iron Queen". Goodfellow and Ash have started their journey to find a way for Ash to remain in the Iron Court. However, their plans are waylaid as a certain fey returns to call in a favor.
For only about 30 pages of actual writing (the rest of the pages are blank or about the series/ about the author pages- this was a very satisfying read. I will be honest- I forgot some of what happened in Iron Queen and I had to go back to Goodreads to remember everything that had happened. This was a fun, light, story that made me wish Iron Knight was coming much much sooner.
This story is only available as an eBook, but I would recommend picking it up- you will read it in no time at all! (I don't have an e-reader, I read it on my computer!)
