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.

If you know me, you'll know how much I love Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. This novella was definitely no exception! I haven't read many novellas so far, but these ones have definitely grabbed my attention and are SO worth the read.
I loved the change in perspective here! I understand that Meghan's story is over (...or is it? you'll just have to see in The Iron Knight *winks*) and so it was fabulous to see another narrator take on the role. I loved the change in atmosphere and mood I must say. Puck was hilarious narrator, and we got to see a different side to him in this short story.

Once again, I must compliment the gorgeous descriptions of the summer court! It sounds so beautiful...and somewhat terrifying as well. I liked all the allusions as well to A Midsummer's Night Dream, and the twist at the end is fabulously played out.

Do NOT hesitate to pick this one up if you love The Iron Fey series as much as I do! It leads up to the Iron Knight (which is as amazing) and this second-last (mini) installment to this amazing series will entice you as all of its books do.
