Wicked Lovely, by Melissa Marr

Aislinn was born into a family with a unique ability to see faeries. With this ability comes 3 rules to follow:

1) Don't ever attract their attention.

2) Don't speak to invisible faeries.

3) Don't stare at invisible faeries.

You see Aislinn has been taught that faeries are mean, nasty and evil. She's involved with a human named Seth but all that changes when Keenan, The Summer King of all faeries stakes a claim on Aislinn as his mate. He's been searching for his queen for NINE CENTURIES. The King needs his mate to complete his power and save the faeries from his evil mother the Winter Queen. Aislinn must pass the test to become the Summer Queen and if she doesn't she will have to endure the Winter Queens cold until the next chosen one takes the test. Aislinn doesn't want to have anything to do with faeries, she just wants to be with Seth but Keenen is not taking no for an answer. Once someone is chosen they cannot be unchosen.

This book is interesting but I rate it "G". There is no graphic or adult content, just good story. The book kept me reading greedily until the end. It was a really good read, but I was slightly disappointed in the ending. Marr ties up all her ends into a neat bow. I usually like that scenario, but I guess in this instance I was hoping for something more heart wrenching.

Book 2 Ink Exchange
Book 3 Fragile Eternity
Book 4 Radiant Shadows
Book 5 Darkest Mercy (Releases Feb 22, 2011)


  1. You really need to read the iron king ita fae book and its really good cant wait till the next one.

  2. It was hard for me to keep interest in the novel as the series progressed. I got half way through Fragile Eternity put it down one night to go to bed and never picked it back up to finish it. Now, it is sitting on my bookshelf with no intention of ever being finished.
