"Wicked Lovely" by Melissa Marr [3 1/2]

Rule 3: Dont stare at invisible faeries.
Rule 2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.
Rule 1: Don't ever attract their attention.

Suddenly none of those rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Now faeries are stalking her and trying to talk to her. 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.

I have been dying to read this book... the cover alone is stunning!

Wow... if ever a book can draw you into a world of make believe this one can. I've now read a couple of faery books and it seems that the common theme is that faeries are nasty creatures who only look after themselves... it continues with this one as well.

This really is a book for teenagers as it deals with all the confusing emotions that happens in this period of your life. Very well written, but I did get a little frustrate with it, probably just an adult thing. Teens will relate to the feelings that are dealt with in this book and I'm sure they will just love it. Don't wont to give too much of it away. I did love the friendship between Aislinn and Seth and how it develops between them, brings back a lot of memories of my teenage years.

Did enjoy it but more for the teens.
