Hunger for nourishment.
Hunger for touch.
Hunger to belong.

Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.

Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries' coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani's death.

Ani isn't one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin's plans--and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?

Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series.

Our customer reviews

In order to understand the specifics of all the characters in this story, it would be best to read the other books in the series: WICKED LOVELY, INK EXCHANGE, and FRAGILE ETERNITY. RADIANT SHADOWS picks up where FRAGILE ETERNITY leaves off. As per their agreement, Seth leaves Sorcha in Faerie so he can return to his life in the Mortal world. Everything starts disintegrating soon after and provides a backdrop for the rest of the story. Ani, Gabriel's daughter, is struggling with her role in the Hunt and controlling the way she feeds. Unlike her siblings, Ani can feed from both mortals and faerie since she feeds on emotions. Life for Ani becomes extremely complicated when Bananach takes an interest in her and orders her to kill Seth. Not knowing what else to do, Ani decides her only option is to run. Devlin, the brother of Sorcha and Bananach, is sent to the Mortal world to look after Seth. Sorcha is obsessed with what Seth is doing and worried for his safety. The trouble is, Devlin gets sidetracked when he runs into Ani at a night club. Devlin and Ani are connected, although the specific connection is unknown - all Devlin understands is that he can't resist Ani. Melissa Marr continues to hold readers' attention in this, the fourth book of the WICKED LOVELY series. Aislinn doesn't play a role in this installment because Keenan is missing, forcing her to focus her attention on the Summer Court. Faerie is in danger due to Sorcha's actions, and it is up to Devlin and Ani to put it right - but Bananach (War) is determined to see death and destruction everywhere. Can they save Faerie before War destroys everything?show more
