Wicked Lovely – Melissa Marr
Publisher: Harper Collins
Age Level: 12+
Reader’s Annotation: Don’t look at the faeries, don’t attract the faeries and certainly, don’t let them know you see them. Aislinn does fine living by this strict set of rules until the Summer King starts courting her to be his Queen.
Summary: Aislinn lives by a set of very strict rules; don’t talk to the faeries, don’t attract their attention and don’t stare. Yet, when she starts being followed by two fairies, court faeries at that, Aislinn has to reevaluate the rules, and why she lives by them. With the mortal and faery worlds hanging in the balance, Aislinn must decide whether to risk her mortality and her best friend Seth, in order to save the worlds she is a part of.
Evaluation: Cast with irresistible characters, faery intrigue, and unrequited and lasting love this is a fantasy world readers will be reluctant to leave.
