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.

One brilliant Goodfellow prank, coming right up.
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, funny and all. But hearing puck's inner thought, I feel pity and just want to hug him and tell him 'hey don’t worry I’m here". It is funny but true.
He hide he's true feeling to all but himself. He's been loyal to Megan and Ash even it hurts him. Aw!
Well I know that Puck will not betray Ash, actually while reading that part I know he will not and there’s some Puck prank that will happened. Of course that is due to the lack of inner thought of puck while talking to Summer Queen. Yet, even if I know it’s a part of his brilliant plan it is painful hearing it because it is true. To say, I cry a little in that part. Sigh*
Summer Crossing is one of the best novellas I read. And reading Puck's perspective is like I said; funny, credulous to his entire prank, charming, and hilarious yet heat-aching.
