Wicked Lovely By Melissa Marr Review #14

Author: Melissa Marr
Publisher: Harper Ten
Pages: 328

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.

Yay I finally finished this book. So what are my thoughts about it?? Well I normally don't read books on fairies because it just isn't my thing but Wicked Lovely made it my thing. Melissa Marr did a wonderful job of creating a world that felt amazing to imagine. It was definitely well written and will keep the readers reading. All the characters are very believable and you can relate to. Aislinn's fear is well described and you really can understand her point of view. I loved how she was so persistent on keeping Keenan away from you, she showed that as a women you need to be strong on your own and make your own choices. Though I did feel that sometimes when she complained to Seth, she looked like a damsels. But other then that she was well written. Anyways I could go on about the characters and how they were well-written but I won't, I'll stop there. Anyways the complaints I have for this book is a) it sometimes wasn't well described so I was confused or found the topic funny. b) it's a bit slow at the beginning and c) the story line is predictable. Other then that it was a well written book. I was unsure If I should rate this a 4 stars or 3 stars, but I honestly believe this is a good book so I'm giving it a 4.
