Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in 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. He 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; her life; everything.

Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st century faery tale.

As the introduction to an extremely complex world, it does a good job of grabbing your attention. This book was a fast read for me and kept me interested the entire time. This is my first "Fae" book so I was unsure what to expect. It took everything I thought I knew about faerie lore but this book gave so much more dimension to the picture I already had in my mind. It was great! Very well written and addictive. If nothing else, read this book so you don't miss anything when you read the books that come after it. They are that much better and round out the story so much more. Again, as an introduction to Melissa Marr's world, it's amazing! 

Review: Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely #1)

User Review  - Mary Beth - Goodreads

An unusual and unexpected fairy or feary tale, but at least it had a happy ending. Overall, I liked it as all the "god guys" won and the bad guys got theirs in the end. Nothing to truly dislike about ... Read full review
