An ebook exclusive novella from Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series.
A short novella about Ash and Puck? Yeah, you read it right. Ash and Puck had a bit of a crazy adventure in the book. I love how they tease each other and Ash telling Puck that he’s going to kill him someday. But of course, we all know that he never will get that chance LOL
So I read this way back a month? I’m just reviewing it now cos now’s only the chance. School wants me to die of requirements and projects. Oh God, i wanna graduate soon. Anyway, this journey is just a little short.
It started when Leanansidhe wanted to claim her side of the deal with Ash. Her precious violin was stolen from her by Titania, Queen of the Summer Court, who was also her arch-nemesis. She wanted Ash and Puck to get the violin for her. They agreed to it so that his debt was off. They went to the Summer Court and disguised as two Summer fey and made their way inside the Seelie Court. Puck told Ash that he had to flirt “a little” with Titania cos his character is a bit connected to her in a sexual way. He agreed but told Puck that he’d have to kill him after they are done with this. They found out that the violin was a girl, a mortal. The fact made the mission harder for them. They had to make a plan, which was of course, from Robin Goodfellow and everything that he suggests seems troublesome enough for the Winter Prince.
Ash was flirting with Titania and Puck had him discovered. I though of course, it was real but then it was a trick. Puck just made Titania angry at the Winter prince and angrier at him. They got the violin but Ash thinks that it would be a waste if they give the girl back to Leanansidhe. Such talent and youth shouldn’t be wasted, he thought. So he gave Leanansidhe, Titania’s most precious mirror and she agreed that the girl goes.
He and Puck went on with their journey to find the cait sith, Grimalkin, who knows the way where he could earn a soul. Much to his happiness, he was determined to find the cat and get his soul to be with his one true love.
