In the third mesmerizing tale in Melissa Marr's #1 New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series, old friends become new enemies--and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.

Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone, but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.

Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her, but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.

Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other--all while navigating the shadowy rules and shifting allegiances of the Faery Courts.

It is definitely good to get back to the story of Ash after Ink Exchange (which I did not enjoy very much). The love triangle between Laurel, Seth & Keenan makes the series. Along with the creative worlds that Melissa has created; the Summer, Winter and the Dark more

When last we saw Aislinn, she had become the embodiment of Summer, and taken her rightful place as Summer Queen. Aislinn has had to adapt quickly to her new faery abilities, and it is certainly not easy. She struggles with her feelings towards Keenan, her Summer King, and her mortal boyfriend, Seth. She loves Seth, but is drawn to Keenan in a way that is inexplicable. Aislinn searches for a happy balance, but it eludes her. Keenan is also facing troubles of his own. Donia, the new Winter Queen, is his heart's desire, but she cannot bear sharing him with Aislinn. They also face a physical barrier that could destroy them both. Aislinn, Keenan, and Donia continue their search for middle ground, but it all comes crashing down when Seth disappears. Aislinn becomes lost and wonders if joining the Faery Court was the right decision. Melissa Marr's sequel to WICKED LOVELY is wonderful. She delves more deeply into the story of the Dark and High Courts, and gives a larger presence to Seth, Aislinn's mortal, and Sorcha, queen of the High Court. Fans of both WICKED LOVELY and INK EXCHANGE will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to further installments in this amazing series! *Gold Star Award Winner!show more

WOW!!..Now this is the one in the series that got me a bit bumbled....but I got through it and popped out the other end much clearer and wiser on faerie knowledge/laws/courts. Niall got stuck with the job!! ( I shall not say which)...Irial is being Irial. Devlin gets introduced. I shall explain it as I got confuzzled by it....Devlin was made by Sorcha and her nutty/evil/death becomes her twin sister, Bananach. They treat him as their brother. Seth is struggling with Aislinn and Keenan and this relationship thing they all have going on. Bananach just wants to bleed everyone. I love her character descriptions in the book as she is one mean twinny. Death/war/death/war is her addiction. Sorcha is 'reason'. Devlin is 'assassin'. Balance needs to be restored. Seth needs to figure out how to be in Aislinn's life . Keenan is a bit spoilt and needs Aislinn..but wants Donia..but is fickle about Donia if he can have Aislinn who knows time will run out for Seth...phew!!!which means Keenan is in with Aislinn. So he just needs to sit back and wait for old age and Seth is no more an issue. Not a good thought Aislinn never aging with old man Seth..bit Anna Nicole Smith with her old Beau she had at one stage. But can Seth overcome this age difference problem which will eventually arise?? Anyhoo keep reading...Melissa has a 5th book, Darkest Mercy there will be the end we will all be Faerie encyclopedias. Fast paced and great more
