Wicked Lovely

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr is a book about a young girl who can see faeries. Most mortals can't. Aislinn has always been able to see them. Now one of them is pursuing her. Keenan is the Summer King and he believes that she is his Queen. If she is his true Queen, she will be able to free him from the Winter Queen's trap. His mother is the Winter Queen and she doesn't want Keenen to have any power over her. This is just the start to an adventure involving good and bad faeries. Aislinn believes that they are all bad. Keenan knows that there are good and bad faeries, and he's one of the good ones. This book is not just about good and bad, it's about what it means to be human and not quite human. It's about Winter time on earth and Summer time. If summer doesn't come will winter rule forever? If Aislinn isn't the Summer Queen what will Keenan do? What can he do? This book is not the usual happy sweet faery book you may be used to reading. This book is darker and more intense. I would love to read a sequel about what happens next.
