WICKED LOVELY by Melissa Marr

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. His 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; everything.  Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first-century faery tale.

Ok...... So I had quite a few people tell me..."You have to read the Wicked Lovely Series. It's great and you wont be disappointed".  So after reading through a lot of other books in my book stack, I decided it was time to give it a go.  I am very fortunate to have an awesome friend who bought me the first 3 books of the series for my birthday (Thanks Twinny!!).

Away I went, sinking my eyeballs into book 1 - Wicked Lovely.  WOW!!! Melissa Marr can certainly create an amazing faerie world.  Getting your head around the rules, laws and hierarchy of faerie courts is continual throughout the whole book and sometimes feels as if it is taking over the story.  The characters are a wonderful mix of smexi, ruthless, tough and generally lovable.

And then there is Keenan........Summer Court "kingling"!  Some may love him.... I loathe him. Seth is a modern day (& pierced) knight in shining armour who I longed to read more about.

By the end of the book I was screaming out for more Seth and wanting to banish Keenan to the Dark Court to be punished.....
As long as you persevere with the faerie knowledge bestowed upon you as a reader, you will have begun to read a very magical and creatively written series of books.
The next book in the series is Ink Exchange.
