*I purchased this book
All teenagers have problems, but few of them can match those of Aislinn, who has the power to see faeries. Quite understandably, she wishes that she could share her friends' obliviousness and tries hard to avoid these invisible intruders. But one faery in particular refuses to leave her alone. Keenan the Summer King is convinced beyond all reasoning that Aislinn is the queen he has been seeking for nine centuries. What's a 21st-century girl to do when she's stalked by a suitor nobody else can see? A debut fantasy romance for the ages.
Wicked Lovely was an awesome book and depicted faeries exactly the way I like them, dangerous, twisted and completely un-trustworthy. None of that glittery winged girl that loves flowers and feeds you morning dew crap. This book has and edgy, dark vibe that I fell in love with from the start. The descriptions are detailed making the scenery and characters vivid, and the book easy to fall in to.
Now with that out of the way, I am hopelessly in love with Seth. I mean I'm sweating this guy like a girl dressed in a one piece snowsuit jogging in Ecuador. Tall, lean, shaggy black hair, piercings and mysterious to boot. Aislinn is cool but for me everyone in the book pales in comparison to Seth. So, moving on, since your probably gagging by now.
The book has a few predictable moments but it didn't take away from the story. With a quick pace, interesting mythology and well developed characters Wicked Lovely was fun to read and has left me hungry for more Melissa Marr. I've already bought the second and third books in the series, Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity. Her story writing is fantastic and I'm confident I won't be let down. I'm giving the book 5 out of 5.
