Summer's Crossing by Julie Kagawa

Summary Provided by 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.

My Thoughts:
Can I just start by saying that I love Puck. I love Ash. I love The Iron Fey series and I love the amazing and talented Julie Kagawa for creating such amazing stories and characters! Summer’s Crossing takes place after the events in The Iron Queen but before The Iron Knight. I do not recommend reading Summer’s Crossing until you have read the first three books of the series!! Puck and Ash are on their way to look for Grimalkin when Leanansidhe, Queen of the Exiles, finds them and wants to cash in on a favor owed to her by Ash. The task is simple really, all Ash has to do is go into the heart of the Summer Court, retrieve a violin that Queen Titania stole from her and bring it back to her. Real easy stuff for the Prince of the Winter Court! Puck and Ash have to pull off one of the biggest pranks in Puck’s life and it is not going to be easy, but Puck is definitely up for the challenge!

What I loved most about Summer’s Crossing is the dynamic between Puck and Ash. They can’t stand each other, but at the same time you know they still care deeply for each other and might actually miss being best friends! I absolutely love them together and it just gets me more excited for The Iron Knight, the story told in Ash’s perspective. Summer’s Crossing also made me see Puck in a new light. I have a deeper respect for him then I had in the first three books, and I am glad that Kagawa revealed to us a little bit about Puck’s inner thoughts and feelings.

Overall, a MUST for any Iron Fey fan!! It made me remember why I love this series so much and got me so much more pumped for The Iron Knight!!


  1. i loved it too! even though i'm firmly team ash, whoot whoot :D

  2. Definitely agree with everything! Loved Puck! But still for Meghan I like Ash! Ash is amazing! Everyone in the series is amazing!! Puck made me laugh quite a bit in this one! Can't wait for The Iron Knight either!
