Product Description

Review

“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, starred review

“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

"It is a read that pushes boundaries and is not afraid to be honest. All the things that make a great teen novel are there, including angst and romance, but in a refreshingly edgy way that may well entice a new audience to teen fiction. 'Wicked'!" From Bump to Grump

"An assured debut… I look forward to seeing Marr's future work." Locus Magazine

"I thought this book had a really great storyline and writing style… The alternative universe was well-explained, and the plot, though complex, was not difficult to grasp. I think anyone over 12 years old should read this book, or they would be missing out on something brilliant."
Red House Reader, aged 13

‘Riveting and dark: I love this tale of a smart, tough girl who walks the razor's edge between an ancient fairy curse and her future!’ Tamora Pierce

Format: Paperback
For this book I have to mention the cover: it's just exquisite. I love the colours, the image and they way it immediately makes you pick it up off the shelf.

I have to say though, I was really disappointed with this book.

To get the 'hate' side of this review over and done with, I thought this book was incredibly dry. Nothing really happened that caught my attention in any way, making reading it a really long and tedious process.

I also didn't like Keenan's character in the story. He was supposed to be a centuries old faery and yet he didn't seem like it; he seemed like an obsessed high school boy just bumbling along, blindly, throughout the whole story; he didn't seem to make any decisions for himself.

In addition to this, the plot was just too predictable for me. The moment all of the characters were introduced I could guess, straight off, what would happen at the end. It made the whole story clichéd, unoriginal and unsatisfying.

BUT! I did love the faery folklore behind the story which I think gives Wicked Lovely quite a bit of credit.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I waited a long time to read this book, so by the time I finally found the time for it, I did have big expectations. Luckily, WICKED LOVELY managed to live upto them.

The story follows Aislinn, a young girl who can see faeries all around her. Although it makes life a little disturbing, she has lived by 3 rules, passed onto her by her grandmother:-
Rule #1: Don't attract the attention of faeries
Rule #2: Don't talk to invisble faeries
Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries

The only problem is, the faeries don't seem to be abiding by the rules which govern them. Increasingly they are following Aislinn around, going to places where they are not meant to be able to follow. Aislinn's world no longer seems safe; she knows she should not trust faeries, but what do they want from her, why are they so interested in her?
And then Keenan comes into her life; a man who is unbelievably attractive. As Keenan pays more and more attention to Aislinn, she finally learns that he is The Summer King and he believes that Aislinn is his Summer Queen.
What follows is an examination of what happens when love, desire and destiny all seem to be at odds against each other. For, if Keenan is right, what will that mean for Aislinn's future?

Marr has done an excellent job at creating a fairytale for the twenty-first century. Unlike women in other fairytales, Aislinn is not the sort of girl to just accept her apparant destiny without a struggle, or even some form of negotiation. She creates a world which is believable and even wickedly tempting, when she talks of the fey folk walking alongside us. By including extracts of old books on fey belief and legend, Marr has also added a further touch of magic.

Format: Paperback
The character development in this book is extremely good, and the storyline well thought out. The author gives readers a chance to empathise with the situation of each individual; for the Summer King's ex-summer-queen contender, Donia - who due to her love for the Summer King, is painfully subjected to an eternity of icy torment until another takes her place. For Aislin who loves Seth, her Gran and both fears and hates the faeries that only she (and other humans with "the sight" can see.) For Keenan, the Summer King, who has a really horrible mother (killed his father) and although Keenan cares for all the poor human girls (but in particular, loves Donia) he must lure human girls into faery life to finally find his Summer Queen (which will save all his fey subjects and dispose his cruel mother from her Winter Queen reign.) For Seth who believes the impossible to believe out of love for Aislin (a guy with incredible faith and patience as well as quite a few body piercings / tattoos). The book winds its way through good Vs evil and even finds a way for all the main characters to be with the one they love. A satisfying book that left me hoping for a sequel - it is worth your time and money.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is aimed at kids, but at 36, I LOVED it!
Aislinn is a mortal (human) Keenan is a Faery (Fairy) but not just ANY faery, he is the Summer King.
Aislinn is a normal teenager, who falls in love with Seth, but since she was born Aislinn has been able to see Faery's everywhere she goes.
In the past steel has kept them at bay, as they find steel exhausting and painful to be around, but some faery's will do anything, just to get their Summer Queen (Aislinn)
Yes, Aislinn is The one, but she is not romantically interested in Keenan at all, so although she becomes the Summer Faery Queen, Aislinn stays with Seth, and Keenan stays with Donia, who was Aislinn's predecessor so to speak, but she was not the one, and when Donia touched the wooden staff, she was made to carry the cold (where she is never warm, and is always suffering), thanks to Keenan's evil mother, Beira, and Donia was to warn any suitors to Keenan that he was bad and not to do it or trust him.
Beira has ruled the Faery kingdom with an iron fist, making every Faery unhappy (with the exception of the Dark Faery, who seem to thrive on the misery she causes)
To cut a long story short, Aislinn = Mortal but now Summer Faery Queen, Seth = Still Mortal, loves Aislinn.
Keenan = Faery, needs Aislinn to defeat his horrid mother and over throw the permanent state of winter.

All in all, an infectious read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, this is NOT for younger readers, although 13+ years would find it great.

I've just brought the continuing two books, and can't wait to get them!!
