Publisher's Summary

Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the 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.

What the Critics Say

"A fully imagined faery world which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into." (Publishers Weekly)
"The fantasy of being pursued by two young men is alluring in itself, but when one is a pierced and tattooed sexy outsider and the other is a blindingly beautiful King of Faery, how much better can it get?" (The Washington Post's Book World)

    "An Awesome Read Book (1 of 5)"
    Where does Wicked Lovely rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book series rates in my top 15.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honestly I loved the narrator. I also liked the authors imagination and her ability to paint the images in the readers mind.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the parts with the winter girl and her wolf. She is kinda dark/emo and says some funny stuff.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it very much was.


    Any additional comments?

    The author did a great job and so did the narrator.

    The reading level is Maybe: High School Senior


    Brief Intro:

    This book is about a cursed fairy king looking for his one true summer queen to lift the curse. By lifting the curse his summer court can than become strong and take back what winter has stolen.

    The main character was born seeing fairy's and therefor she tries to dodge the summer kings every attempt.

    Eventually the girl is talked into becoming the summer fairy queen for the betterment of the world.

    Story
    "Wicked Boring"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not at all. I was bored with this book. It was my first audiobook experience aside from The Hunger Games, and I think this is probably a book better read instead of listened to.


    What could Melissa Marr have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I think i will end up liking it once I move on to other books in the series and reading them instead of listening to them. Sometimes I read a book, then listen to it and I enjoy it's telling much more.

    "Wickedly Weak"

    While I did enjoy listening to the book, I feel that there were so many details that weren't developed or explained as well as they should have been. The storyline was great and the characters all were interesting. But I felt that they weren't developed as fully as they could have been and should have been. I finished listening to the book but it's not one of those that I feel compelled to listen to again nor have the desire to pick up its sequels. It's sad really. I had hoped for more potential.

    "good faerie tale"

    good story; this one was an interesting take on fairies; the narrator's voice for the heroine sort of annoyed me to begin with, and it changes as the book goes on. The narrator cannot pronounce words like "labret;" you would think that someone would really look up words he/she never heard before up before reading them aloud for an audiobook.

    "Lovely ;)"

    I would recommend this book (series) to most adults who love the fantasy genre. The mixing of Faery in every day life is something I enjoyed a whole lot. The narration was to be desired slightly. However I know the rest of the series has a male narrator and he is much better.

    Story
    "My wife..."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Keeane. I do chalk some of his behavior as being hindered from being binded. For some one who is suppose to run hot blood he seemed collected. But for this flaw he seemed much better then Seth

    My wife liked DeVina.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this book with my wife whenever we were driving. I missed parts but she loved it

    "Bummer"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I guess i don't know enough about fairies to understand this book. I do think that a reader that has the understanding of a fairy, will enjoy this book though.


    What could Melissa Marr have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Explained things durring the story. Example: Some girl says " Hay are you going to the party" ...... What party? this is the first i have heard of any party and now its a main event?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too confused to have one. I think you have to understand fairies a bit to enjoy this book.


    What character would you cut from Wicked Lovely?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I guess i don't know enough about fairies to understand this book. No suspense build up. One min a fairy can not touch iron; the next paragraph, there is one strong enough to touch iron. I guess it is a big deal, but it didnt seem like it with no build up. A few things like this struck me.

    Story
    "Baby Twilight"

    If you're thirteen and Twilight is your favorite series EVAR, then this is probably the book for you. I picked this up hoping for an intriguing tale of faerie folk akin to others I have read but many parts of this book are unbearably juvenile. The lead character is reminiscent of Bella Swan, although not quite to that extreme. Still, she's introverted and moody and although she deflects everyone's attentions, she stubbornly remains the subject of everyone's fantasies and desires. Seth's character is completely unrealistic and plays into the 'what teenage girls dream boys were like' category. Also, all the emphasis on !Zomg!punkfashion! and piercings was a little ridic, not to mention nearly useless to the story itself. Sometimes the story read more like sex-ed (minus the sex, all the advice).

    The story is somewhat hallow. I'm trying to keep in mind that this is a YA read, but even comparing to other YA's, it was disappointing. It's an urban fantasy, which I find much more difficult to pull off. I thought the way the author was trying to portray it was actually a good, believable start, but the plot was weak and full of circumstantial or predictable acts. I never really felt like anything went particularly wrong for the characters you wanted to support, or that they had to work particularly hard to achieve their goals.

    Like many of you, I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audiobooks allow me to keep up with my favorite authors. I am currently listening to 'Undead and Unstable' by MaryJanice Davidson, because 'Yours, Mine and Ours' is still not available. Grrr.

    "Good but not interested"

    This is a good book but..... I just can't relate to a character that has so little confidence and has to learn it. This story teaches teens about love and fear and being strong. I think I am just to old to remember having to learn these things. I do hope we can all find our Seth. I am also not really interested in fairies. The plot is good but I wish there was more action in the 1st 3/4ths of the book.
