Publisher's Summary

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.

Team Puck

I enjoyed this novella and getting to peek into Puck's mind. I've always secretly been Team Puck.

Josh Hurley does a good job as Puck, and speaks very clearly, but there were moments when his delivery seemed a little forced. Of course, it must be hard to step into a character mid-series when Khristine Hvam has done such a superb job with the other books.

Puck's POV, Thank the Gods!

Where does Summer's Crossing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Summer's Crossing ranks fifth or sixth among the numerous audiobooks I've listened to so far. Josh Hurley brings such life to Puck and it was such an answer to a secret wish for The Iron Fey series that it was destined to rate highly.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character in this was Puck. I loved how mixed up he was in his thought process, and yet he was able to create a plan that allowed him space to change his mind about what he ultimately wanted to do. I admire the character's cunning and I love the energy that Josh Hurley brings to Puck in particular.

What does Josh Hurley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Josh Hurley brings life to Puck, and sass to Grimalkin. Without Josh Hurley I would have had to rely on the imaginary echo of goofy sass and it's so much more heartening to hear it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh several times.

Any additional comments?

This is a nice break from Meghan Chase's annoying Mary-Sue tendencies and most of Ash's troubling level of angst while remaining within the world of The Iron Fey.

A Fun Short Story

This was a fun short story from the point of view from one of my favorite characters in this series, Puck. Although Puck and Ash are sent on a dangerous mission, the way Puck tells the story makes it humorous. I found myself smiling quite a bit.

It was nice reading about the two former best friends getting along, even though Ash acts like he still cannot stand Puck.

I also enjoyed the narrator who brought Puck to life.

Poor Narration

I really like the series and the regular narrator. I didn’t like the narration of this novella. It didn’t fit, he has a rather small range where as the series regular narrator has a rather large range and a smooth soothing voice. Glad it was short.

I prefer the last Narrator to tell this story...

The story is AWESOME but the narrator is just not making it work! And I'm saying that because I've gotten used to the last narrator of 'The Iron Fey', this man's voice makes me dose off.

Great Quick Listen

What did you love best about Summer's Crossing?

Great to hear Puck's point of view.

Any additional comments?

With Puck you are going to have tons of laughs and more than enough sarcasm to keep things interesting.
