Description

An enthralling collection of short stories featuring favourite characters from Melissa Marr's bestselling WICKED LOVELY series. Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments, dark and light, by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from under the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention - with amorous or sinister intent - relentlessly. From the gentle tones of a storyteller's cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favourite characters from Marr's Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with ...or to fear. Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr's stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.show more

Review quote

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. * * * *" Blissshow more

Our customer reviews

I really love the cover for this book. I love that it's pretty yet haunting at the same time. It was what drew me to it in the first place and made me ask for a copy for review. FAERY TALES & NIGHTMARES isn't a full length novel. It's a collection of 8 short stories. WHERE NIGHTMARES WALK, WINTER'S KISS, TRANSITION, LOVE STRUCK, OLD HABITS, STOPPING TIME, COTTON CANDY SKIES AND MERELY MORTAL. At first, I wasn't too sure if I could read the ones that take place within the Wicked Lovely world. I haven't yet read that series and I argued with myself as to whether reading them would spoil any future enjoyment when I do pick them up. I needn't have worried though because as it turns out, they made me more likely to read Wicked Lovely. I fell in love with 2 of the characters, Niall and Irial and now I am desperate to read more about them. *swoons* Sorry, I got sidetracked there for a moment. I don't want to write this review as I would for a full-length novel. I don't want to spoil it for anyone that hasn't read it yet. The stories are so short and sweet that I find it hard to sum them up and do them justice without giving too much away. What I can tell you is that this book is a MUST for Wicked Lovely fans. I hadn't actually read anything by Melissa Marr before picking this up but now I know that she is an author that I really look forward to more from. I can definitely tell why she is a New York Times Bestselling Author. Her writing is fast-paced and intriguing, she keeps you guessing what will happen next. I fell truly in love with Niall and Irial and if she can write more characters like them, then I can see myself falling in love plenty more times. I adore books where you feel like you could actually be part of the story. I felt so at home within the stories based within the Wicked Lovely world. This is why I am now so eager to pick up the series. I actually cried at one of them so if a short story can do that to me, imagine what a full-length novel about those characters will do to me. I love all things fey. This is probably why those were my favourite of the 8. But I did enjoy all of them. They were fast and fun for different reasons. I am so pleased that I was presented with the opportunity to read this book. So thanks to Rosi at Harper Collins for sending it to me. Thanks to Melissa Marr for creating such amazingly good stories and worlds in which to get lost. I look forward to getting to know the rest of your characters.show more
