“She watched him – the boy she’d fallen in love with these past weeks. She’d
never dreamed he was something other than human, but now his skin glowed as if
flames flickered just under the surface, so strange and beautiful she couldn’t look
away. ‘It’s what I want.’”
Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely stole my attention with its
romantic tale and fantasy plot. Wicked Lovely is about a girl in high school named
Aislinn, who has a very big secret. She can see faeries. But they’re not like the faeries
that you build little houses for in the forest. These kinds are powerful and dangerous.
When the rules that kept Aislinn safe from the faeries stop working, everything is
at risk: her best friend, Seth; her life; everything. Aislinn is stuck between two relationships – Seth, who she cares for deeply, and Keenan, the faerie summer king, who needs her help. When she is forced by Keenan to choose between them, she is conflicted. She doesn’t want to choose Keenan but if she doesn’t, something bad is going to happen to her. She’ll become something miserable and with live the rest of her life in cold pain. Melissa Marr writes the story from Keenan’s point of view and Aislinn’s point of view. If you enjoy reading romantic fantasies, then you’ll love reading Wicked Lovely.
