Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty-especially if they learn of her Sight-and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.
Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.
Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.
Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.
But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King, who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. His is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost-regardless of her plans or desires.
Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; everything.
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first-century faery tale.
I stumbled upon Wicked Lovely when I was purchasing City of Bones. I felt a pull in the title, like it rings a bell. So glad I gave in and bought it.
Melissa Marr created a story of how a mortal got caught up in the power play in the fairy world. Her character of Aislinn is a head-strong, independent and loyal girl. Despite being young and was brought up alone by her grandmother, she is no pushover. She knows what and who she wants. When this fairy king, Keenan comes along she proves that she's no ordinary mortal who will give in to him, not especially since she has set her heart on another.
The first of the Wicked Lovely series is far my favorite of the series. Showcasing Melissa Marr's writing skill not only with the beautifully crafted story but with how each character has their personality and seemingly depth.
The book can stand alone on its own but you'll get mesmerized with it you'll want more.
