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!
Review-A-Thon book count: 3
I think I need to give this book/series another shot. I started it and discarded it fairly (ha ha, no pun intended) quickly. But it gets great reviews, so…
I have this one too! But I haven’t gotten to it either. SUMMER IS HERE YAY! which means, more reading time 🙂 great review!
I think I will try this one… I have not read any books on just fairy. I have been reading mainly vampire so fairy should fit right in to what I like. lol… Romance and fantasy paranormal sounds good to me. 🙂
I adore the Wicked Lovely series. It, too, was my first ever fairy read. I was totally invested in all the characters–Donya was my favorite. Once I read the first book, I picked up the others immediately after because I had to find out how things would end. It was like a soap opera for me. I hope you continue the series and enjoy them as much as I did. =)
I loved this series, Donia was my favorites too.
