This story follows Robin Goodfellow (or Puck, as he is better known by this name). He is the same jester/prankster from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ by William Shakespeare. With is dry sense of humor, you will either love or hate him, but he will grow on you…
This book can be read as a standalone or form a part of The Iron Fey series.
Now, we learn quite a lot about Robin’s life story, giving insight into his truth. To make things even more interesting, he will also be facing a threat to the Fae lands and human world. And new fae-types are being introduced into this world Julie created as well.
The world itself, every new area we learn of, are sculpted into existence with enough information to give your imagination some free rein to be creative in filling in the spaces. This is the kind of world you can easily fall in love with and get used to.
Julie seems to have a talent for weaving past and present into a story you can follow. Even with the large cast of characters, each one is distinct and unique, their pasts interlocking to form a brilliant narrative. There is even some influence of Grimm fairytales, or maybe that is just my imagination.
If you wish to know Robin Goodfellow’s story, know what makes him who he is, this is a must-read. Even the cliffhanger ending is worth knowing his story…
