Product Description


Praise for ‘Wicked Lovely’:
“Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into.” Publisher’s 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? Readers will beg for a sequel.” Washington Post

"This is a magical novel… the first book in a trilogy that will guarantee to have you itching for the next instalment. * * * *" Bliss

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome little Anthology 4 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Giovanni's Farewell - Claudia Gray : A tale of twins Cairo and Ravenna who are on a school trip to Rome when they both discover they have unique abilities. Not the strongest story in the collection as I thought the ending was a bit weak, of all the places the author could have taken the story I felt she sort of bailed on the posibilities! 7/10

Scenic Route - Carrie Ryan : This story I really enjoyed, we meet two sisters, Margie and Sally who are clearly hiding from something. They've secured themselves in a cabin but it is not clear what they are trying to protect themselves from. The mentioned "Change time" has obviously been a significant worldwide event which we find out more about as the story progresses. I felt this one had more tension and kept me interested and I was really sorry when it ended as I'd very much like to find out what happens next. 9/10

Red Run - Kami Garcia : An interesting little ghost story, I guessed there was a twist and I was right, figured what it was just before it happened but didn't spoil the story. This was a short one but the writer developed a very good level of creepyness and even in the short length I felt the characters were good and I was very engaged in the tale. The plot reminded me of the tv show supernatural which I love so this little gem of a ghost story was right up my street. 9/10

Things about Love - Jackson Pierce : In this story we meet a Jinn who wants to know how you fall in love, why people fall in love, what does it mean? This was not really a creepy one at all, in fact it was quite sweet but didn't hold any real excitement. It was pleasant enough but didn't keep me that interested. Sorry. 5/10

Niederwald - Rachel Vincent : This was really good ....

4.0 out of 5 stars Enthralled 16 Jan 2012
By Jade
Since this is an anthology, I will be giving each story a mini-review and rating before giving an overall rating of the whole book.

1. Giovanni's Farewell by Claudia Gray
Never read anything by Claudia Gray before, simply because I've been put off vampires. This definitely has put Fateful on my wishlist. I loved the way that we get basically a mini story in this one - beginning, middle and end but I still wanted more. I already adore the twins in this and it was only a short story. Gray's writing is fantastic. (Rating: B+)

2. Scenic Route by Carrie Ryan
set in the same world as The Forest of Hands and Teeth, this one was gritty and dark, I was terrified for the characters despite having only just met them. i would actually like a spin-off following these characters and would definitely read it. The writing lacked a little something but the story made up for it. (Rating: B)

3. IV League by Margaret Stohl
I didn't really get into this one, I can't say that I was particularly interested in the characters or the stories and wouldn't read a spin off. (Rating: D)

4. Red Run by Kami Garcia
This one was amazing, I love ghost stories and this little short one was perfect. I probably would read a book based around but I think it would still work better as this short story. Garcia's writing is fittingly creepy and builds the suspense and I cared for the characters a lot. (Rating: A)

5. Things About Love by Jackson Pearce
This was a cute little love story. A little boring at some times, but I thought the characters and story were cute. I may pick up As You Wish at some point. (Rating: C+)

6. Niederwald by Rachel Vincent
Didn't read because I lost interest in the book series after book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good way to explore new authors 28 Nov 2011
I'd recommend reading this book if:

1. It has stories by authors you have enjoyed reading.
2. If you like to read everything by an author you like.
3. If you really enjoy the genre but sometimes are just too busy to commit to a whole book.
4. If you are looking for new authors to read but don't like to leave books unfinished (even if you don't like them.)
5. You don't want to risk wasting your money on something you don't enjoy.
6. If you are looking for a gift for someone who enjoys paranormal / urban fantasy fiction.

I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see the different interpretations of the journey theme. I doubt I will be getting the novels of every author in it but didn't regret reading any of the individual stories. I 'found' the book as I have read much of the published work of Rachel Caine, Rachel Vincent and Melissa Marr.

However, personally, the reason I am so glad I read this is discovering Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I absolutely loved 'The Third Kind'. I have not read any of her other work yet but will definitely be changing that. Unfortunately at the time of writing Jennifer has not written any more on the characters in the short story but I'm hoping she will as it seems like it would be a great series.

There are a few other authors I will be trying out based on their short story in this book. I think it is worth the time of a paranormal / urban fantasy reader and may lead to many more pleasurable reading hours to come. If you haven't already used it the look inside feature gives you a taste of quite a few of the stories.
