Review: Wicked Lovely

Review: Wicked Lovely

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.

I heard many outstanding things about this book before I read it, and now i know why. The story line of this book is so much better than I thought it would be, being straight forward and focused, not losing the attention of the reader. This book has strong characters, suspense, a pinch of horror, and romance everything, in my opinion, that makes for a great book.  

Being a Ya fiction lover, one of my favorite parts of these books are the love triangles. They are something I look forward to in most books I read. I am very pleased to say that this triangle of love did not turn out the way I expected.

Over all this book was a great read and I encourage you all to read it! :)
