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.
Unlike the previous stories in this series, this one is told from Puck's perspective and I very much enjoyed his voice. He's a smart mouth as usual, but we also see beyond to the caring, intelligent fey who's deeply in love with Meghan. King Oberon makes an appearance and makes Puck an offer that's difficult to refuse, one that forces him to make an awful choice. Leanansidhe and Queen Titania also appear in the book.
We get a glimpse into how Puck's mind and, though Kagawa has moved on to a new series, I hope that someday she comes back and gives more stories about Puck, from his perspective. This story had bits of humor, after all it's Puck who is telling it, but it's also fast paced, shows us more of the Summer Court, and is entertaining from beginning to end. It captured me from the beginning and held me to the end. It moves the overall story a little but you can read the next, and final, book without having read this one. But I recommend reading it, it's gripping and enjoyable.
I own this ebook.
