Summary (from Goodreads):
Rule #3: Don’t stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in 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.
I’ll admit I was skeptical of this book at first. I did not think that I would like faerie books. For whatever reason, they did not seem interesting to me. But when this book was 99 cents on ibooks, I figured I would give it a shot.
I am so glad I did, because I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I know that I will like the series. This book was interesting and inventive.
It is about a girl, Ash, that can see the fair folk. She has kept this a secret her whole life but now they are taking an interest in her.
I really liked that Ash did not fall at the summer king’s feet. I liked that she resisted him and stood up for herself. She is a very strong-willed, yet shy girl. I loved the balance of strength and fragility she displayed.
and I can’t even begin to describe how much I love Seth. He took everything in stride and never seemed to be flustered. I cannot wait to see how their relationship grows in the other books.
I am interested to see what will happen to Donia next. I liked her more than I thought I would, and I hope my opinion of her does not lessen in the next book.
Of course I do hope Keenan takes more of an interest in Ash too because who doesn’t like a good love triangle?
This should be a very promising series!
