Wicked Lovely by Mellisa Marr

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 (

This is book one in the Wicked Lovely series. I am really excited to dive into this series. I loved the characters, the plot was pretty good, but the writing wasn't something I really dug. The writing was good but there was something about the style that I didn't really like. But, despite that, the book was a page-turner and very entertaining to read. I am excited to see how the next books turn out.

I really liked Ash. I like her nickname Ash better than her full name Aislinn. She is strong and I like that in a main character. I really liked the development or Ash and Seth's relationship. It will be interesting to see how Seth develops in the next books. I had conflicting thoughts over Keenan the whole time. I didn't know if I loved him or hated him. At first I didn't like Donia but I grew to like her. I began to feel bad for her. Even at the end, I still felt bad for her.

What else can be said? I think I am about to get into another great series!

Overall: 4/5
