Gr 4-6–In this sequel to Winterling (HarperCollins, 2012), Fer discovers that being the daughter of the deceased Lady of the Summerlands and vanquishing an evil usurper isn't enough to live happily ever after. Called back from the human world where she lives with her grandmother to the world beyond the Way, the girl discovers that her half-human heritage means that she must prove to the High Ones that she is worthy of being Lady of the Summerlands. She travels to the court of the High Ones with a small retinue that includes her possibly untrustworthy puck friend, Rook. There, she learns that she must compete against three other candidates for the right to be ruler. As Fer tries to win over the disdainful High Ones while remaining true to her convictions, Rook makes things worse by behaving suspiciously. Is he truly a trickster with no loyalty, as Fer's disturbingly beautiful opponent Aren insists? Deciding whom to trust becomes a life or death decision for Fer. This is a solid fantasy with enough suspense, action, magic, and warmth to keep readers happily entertained from the first page to the last. Both Rook and Fer stand out as interesting, well-drawn characters. A must for fans of the first title, the story also stands on its own and will be appreciated where high fantasy is in demand.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2013.

In Winterling (2012), Fer defeated the Mor to become Lady of the Summerlands. In this follow-up, she defends her claim while struggling to determine how to rule and whom she can trust. The story of her puck friend Rook is explored more fully as he wrestles with competing loyalties to his brother pucks and Fer. Summoned by the High Ones, Fer must compete for the title of Lady of the Summerlands. What price is she willing to pay to win? Is it worth going against her convictions or ignoring a chance to heal someone in pain? This solid sequel will please fans of the first and, once again, they’ll root for the strong female character. Grades 5-8. --Suzanne Harold

On to my favorite part of the book...Rook's puck-brothers.Awesomeness but not quite,exactly as I like them.And by the end of the book they haven't become Fer's best buddies or puck-bodyguards either, which is good.However,I'm still hoping for maybe a closer relationship between our Lady and the pucks,especially Tatter,who seemed to take more of a shine to her than the others.
Now for Rook!! Okay..so I don't understand how the question of "are we friends or not" drags on till the end of the book and is STILL not resolved!Not only is it irritating but it puts us in an awkward position. Dies this mean that the conclusion of the trilogy will be "Rook and Fer have at last decided that they are friends." Or worse,will Prineas go all Collins on us and have Rook and Fer agree that it's not possible for them to be friends at all? Please,please don't let that happen.
I have a few requests for book 3:
1.please please please let Rook and Fer be friends at least-
2.please give us an awesome villain
3.please let us see phouka in person form
4.pucks!give us more pucks!especially Tatter.Besides Rook he's my absolute favorite.
Summerkin is not as tightly written as Winterling. Nor does it have that dark-fairy-tale touch that made me obsess over Winterling.Still,this book is a great one.It's quite fresh and original unless you're a hard-core fantasy junkie who's seen all that before..(I used to be one,but I'm taking a break.)...and makes for a great story.Don't miss out.
My only objective... I wish Rook stayed with Fer in the end.
This series should be made into movies so other people get to hear more about these books.
