SYNOPSIS:

(back of the book)
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.

REVIEW:

When you get a hold of a free novella by anyone else, you pretty much take your time to get to reading it. But when it’s an extension of a story you just can’t get enough of, there’s no chance you’ll wait a day to devour it. It only took me a little while to read this from beginning to end. I could have held my breath for the short amount of time it took to read and how thrilling it was to delve into a new adventure in the world of faery. GIVE ME MORE, DANG IT!
This is a grrrrreat extension to the Iron Fae series. I enjoy reading every book in this series. What is most unique about this one is that it is told from the point of view of Puck, the silly prankster who seems to be loyal to no one but himself. Even though his voice could have been stronger, the story line makes up for anything he lacked in being the narrator. It was a great short adventure.

RATING:

Obviously I loved this novella, the only terrible thing was that it ENDED! Give me more, oh Julie Kagawa! I rate this novella at a 5: Excellent, definitely worth the time. It and all of the Iron Fae is easily on my favorite series list.


RECOMMENDATIONS:

I would totally recommend you read ALL the other books first so you know what the heck is going on and go here to download this free novella for when you’ve gotten through them! Read it, read it, read it. Hey Pam, read it!
