About the author:
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.
Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon puppy.
What goodreads says:
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.
So in this short Novella we get to see how Puck and Ash interact when Meghan isn't around. After the Heartbreaking ending in book 3 (yes I'm still thinking about it....) Puck and Ash are going in search of Grim, trouble is Grim doesn't really feel like being found (I love that cat) but before that Lea the exiled queen, calls Ash upon the favour he owns her, Ash has to get back a "Violin" that someone stole from her. Easy right? Well not so much seing that the person who stole it is Queen Titania, Queen of the Summer Court. So Ash, with Puck's help must disguse himself in order to get into the Summer Court without being killed. I really felt sorry for Puck and was scared for a moment as he seemed to have done something unthinkable, but then I breathed calmly again as he didn't really do what he had seemed to do (confusing right?? Well unless you've read the book, in that case you'll know what I'm talking about)
In all this book was awsome but short so it get's 4 stars.
