Rule #3: Don’t stare at invisible faeries.
Rule #2: Don’t speak to invisible faeries.
Rule #1: Don’t ever attract their attention.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. When the rules that have kept Aislinn safe from them stop working, everything is suddenly on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr’s stunning 21st century faery tale.
I’ll start with the fact that i love faerie books, absolutely adore them. They are probably my one of my favourite genres without question.
Ash is just another normal High School student, she goes out with her friends, drinks, has some fun she even goes to class. The only thing slightly different about her is that she can see faeries, she’s always been able to. Her gran says it runs in their blood, but she must stay away from them as faeries are evil things. Ash has been able to see what they do to unsuspecting humans and she agrees, these faeries must be evil. When some of them start following her she worries, little does she know that everything is about to change for her. Whether she likes it or not.
Wicked Lovely is a book that just sucks you right in, i really like Ash as a character and her and Seth’s interactions. Keenan comes across differently to people but i just plain don’t really like him. The plot the Melissa has woven here is wonderfully intricate and sets the scene for the coming chapters. The way she introduces this different version of the world we live in flows so seamlessly into the story that it almost makes you believe that this could be true and it might be happening, but we would have absolutely no idea. The characters in the novel are wonderfully diverse and have the ability for you to really connect with them, so the novel feels personal and the story is almost your own. I love this series and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes the faerie genre or anyone that just wants a good read 🙂
“Seth gave her that: a private space to believe in the illusion of normalcy.”
