Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

Title:  Wicked Lovely
Author:  Melissa Marr
Genre:  Young Adult/Paranormal/Romance
Publisher:  Harper Collins/Harper Teen
Paperback/Pages:  352 Pages

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. (Amazon Product Description)

I discovered Wicked Lovely thanks to an eavesdropping associate at my local Half-Price Books. As my eldest daughter and I searched for some new reading material to take on vacation, we heard a disembodied voice floating from amongst the stacks telling us to try reading Melissa Marr’s books. I laughed at first, but when the associate told me that anyone who loved Twilight needed to read them, I decided to take the plunge. I only bought the first two books (dang it!), but I am glad I did. I will definitely have to seek out the others in the series.

I loved this book! Melissa Marr weaves a world so amazing and intriguing that it practically leaves you breathless!  I was drawn into the world of the fey from page one and I could not pull myself out of it, nor did I want to. I have read books with faeries, but none as amazing as Wicked Lovely. Marr creates characters that are so irresistible, that I couldn’t choose a side. On one page I was siding with the fey and on another I was siding with the mortals. Keenan and Seth are both so beautiful and amazing, choosing between them seems nearly impossible. I am thankful I am not Aislinn.  The mortal characters are just as interesting as the fey characters. I am desperate to learn more about this world that Marr has created and I will be picking up the rest of the series.

If you are a fan of paranormal romance, this book is for you. I recommend it for anyone who enjoyed the Mortal Instruments series or the Twilight series.  Actually, I recommend it for everyone!
