I really loved this one. This time, the story is told by Robin "Puck" Goodfellow. I always loved Robin, he was always the bright side of the story... And everyone keeps ignoring him :(... And this time, we finally find out his real feelings towards Meghan, and it makes me sad that he never even had a chance.
“I was here for Meghan. Because I loved my princess and I wanted her to be happy. Even if her happiness meant she was with someone else. Even if that someone else wa...more
Okay, so I flew through this. I definitely prefer Puck in third person, being written about through Meghan, but this was awesome. A bit predictable in some ways, but so many millions of types of awesome. I ADORE Puck, and am Team Puck for life. This novella hooked me from the first page. Puck isn't awesome. Puck is GREATER than awesome. Puck doesn't learn from awesome. Awesome learns from Puck. Robin Goodfellow makes Chuck Norris wish he was a faerie. While most fey have nig ...more

Puck is my favorite character in The Iron Fey series. So you could just imagine my delight when I first heard about this novella. Honestly, I could barely contain my happiness.
In this novella Prince "Ice-boy" Ash and Robin "Puck" Goodfellow embark on a new adventure. But first, they have to find a certain cat, Grimalkin. Unfortunately, the exiled Muse Queen comes to call in a favor from Prince Ash. She asks for them to sneak into the S ...more
Summer's Crossing is hilarious. Painfully hilarious. This make me want to be team puck. AGAIN. Well, I always side in the OBVIOUS end up love team but in Iron fey series I’m confused.
Ok here's the pattern:
The Iron King - team ash
The Iron Daughter - team puck
Winter's Passage - team ash
The Iron Queen - team ash
Summer's Crossing - team puck
And after reading this little novella I can’t help but to feel sorry for Puck. He’s hilarious, sweet, prankster, ...more
What thrill to again ...more
I am a Team Ash girl but Puck is one fairy boy I dearly love and respect. And after this I respect him even more.
He is one cheeky fairy, prankster and all that, but I think a little of Meghan's humanity robbed off on him.
Having him as a narrator, even just for a little bit, was some treat.
And Ash! Boy oh boy! How long are you going to make me cry because of you?
Ironic how the ice-prince just warms our hearts. ^_^
" My name, one of many, is Robin Goodfellow.
You may have heard of me."
How could I miss that?
That's Puck POV, and Puck's always a red-head, infuriating breath of fresh air, you know?
He's living an adventure with the Icy Prince, remember, Ash.
Well - what else could I want before reading Ash's POV in the Iron Knight? I need a serious preparation, otherwise I'll start to melt on the floor on page 1.
"The last time something like this had happened, Titania had ref...more
Puck is that annoying best friend that you constantly want to strangle, but couldn't imagine life without. I always really loved him in the previous books and I really enjoyed seeing his POV in this short novella. Despite Ash and Meghan's epic love, Puck will always be waiting in the wings for her, ready to be there as he ...more
FUNNY as hell and a bit sad, too.
Puck is probably my favorite character in this series and the relationship between him and Ash is one of my favorite things about these books. This novella is AWESOME. And it's written from Puck's POV, so you can be sure to laugh out loud.
Puck and Ash going on an adventure together? Perfect. And hilarious.
When Puck was thinking about Meghan, though, I just wanted to go to the stupid Nevernever and give him a hug.
"Because. He fell in love with my princess."
Edit: oohhh the synopsis is up! Looks sooo good! :D
Alright, so here's my actual r ...more
Hehe, Puck ;)
You little naughty boy! *evil grin*
I am so Team Puck and I didn't want this book to end! At-last I got some POV of Puck and I loved every single line of it. It was such a fun and cunning adventure and he stayed happy and mischievous all the time. Typical Puck =) And when he revealed Sir Torin as Ash, I was like, "NO way my Puck can do something like that!" And it was true! He didn't!^^
TEAM PUCK FTW! xD
Some quotes which I can totally relate it to Puck:-
"You are what I never knew I ...more
I adore Puck! As much as my heart belongs to Ash, these books just wouldn't have the same measure without the wit and humor our Puck has so this was a real treat to have this in his pov.
Loved it. Want more. Always!

This time around the novella centers on Puck and Ash. Ash must pay back a favor and what you know Puck is the person to help him out. It was fun to see things from Puck's perspective. The style is much more light and funny ...more
In this short but certainly sweet and teasing story, Ash has to fulfill the favor he made with Leanansidhe, and in order to do so, he had to ask for help from the most unlikely of friends, or maybe you can say enemy both in courts and for Meghan, no other than Robin Goodfellow, and pull off a prank right into the heart of the Summer Court.
It was nice getting into Puck's head once in a while. Readers get to take a peek on what is going on through that pl ...more

I cleared my calendar so that I could devour Summer's Crossing the moment it was released!! This little e-novella was a fun little read that, as we were warned, would be told from Puck's perspective, and would involve a great deal of shenanigans brought to you by who else but Puck!
The following will be just a little spoilery...
At the end of The Iron Queen, Ash vowed that he would find a way to be with Megha ...more
Julie Kagawa has already written another novella (Winter's Passage). This novella happens between book 1 and book 2. I really enjoyed Winter's Passage but I loved Summer's Crossing even more.
Everybody know that i'm a fervent fan of Puck so reading this novella from his POV was awesome.
This short st ...more
so what to expect from Puck?
of course we all get the perception that Puck is this Happy go lucky guy who always pulls up some pranks and tricks and always defies King Oberon's rules BUT did you ever see the heart broken side of Puck? kinda hard to believe but yes, in this nov ...more
I had no idea this novella was going to be from our goofy Puck's pov, so when I found out, you could say I was a wee-bit excited. It was as good as I'd ever expected. His tricks never fail to amaze me and this time was no different. In fact, I was seriously impressed. Even if I knew he wouldn't (view spoiler)[betray Ash (hide spoiler)], there was a moment of uncertainty during the second last chapter and I loved it! Loved the suspense, the tricks, Puck's emo ...more
Oh well, this reads more as a filler. I guess that's the purpose of a novella anyway so I shouldn't expect too much out of this.
If I have not been a devout Ash shipper since the first book, I would have probably rooted for Puck after reading this. His voice is so fun to be read! And now I also learned that he's not just a prankster but he is much more than that; he has done the honourable when faced with the tempting offer by Oberon. So hats off, mate!
I can't believe how ...more
