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.

My Review

Puck is telling the story this time! This is huge. HUGE. And, most importantly, he's adorable while doing it, I might add. Oh, Puck. I've always favored His Royal Icy-ness over you, but now I can't think of why. You are just too funny and cute.

Anyway, needless to say, getting inside of Puck's head and seeing things from his POV is like eating the fluffiest, most sugary-sweet cake on your birthday while you're buried in oodles of expensive gifts given to you by all your favorite people in the world. It's nothing short of awesome. I want Puck to tell me more stories because now I am a much bigger fan!

And, existing Puck fans will not want to go on with life unaware of this short story's existence. Such a thing cannot be endured. Puck gets to be such a schemer in this story, truly living up to his reputation as the most notorious impish prankster. Brilliant. If you love him, you'll want to know more about what goes on in the heart and mind of this delightfully witty, charming character who has had people enchanted since Queen Elizabeth I (the First) was on the English throne… (for realz).

My score: 5 out of 5 stars.
