Review

"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, starred review "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. * * * *" Bliss "It is a read that pushes boundaries and is not afraid to be honest. All the things that make a great teen novel are there, including angst and romance, but in a refreshingly edgy way that may well entice a new audience to teen fiction. 'Wicked'!" From Bump to Grump "An assured debut! I look forward to seeing Marr's future work." Locus Magazine "I thought this book had a really great storyline and writing style! The alternative universe was well-explained, and the plot, though complex, was not difficult to grasp. I think anyone over 12 years old should read this book, or they would be missing out on something brilliant." Red House Reader, aged 13 'Riveting and dark: I love this tale of a smart, tough girl who walks the razor's edge between an ancient fairy curse and her future!' Tamora Pierce

4.0 out of 5 stars Succesful Hook April 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a quick, easy, enjoyable read. In the "Twilightesque" fashion, it is about a high school girl, with an uncommon ability (in this case to see the invisible world of faeries) and someone of the supernatural realm finds her desirable. I am a voracious reader, which means I read alot of books that I don't always care for and across all genres. This book kept me interested from beginning to end. Could the author have developed the characters more, better transitions? Sure, but it was still a good, light, entertaining read...AND, here is the important part, it was free for my kindle--the hook worked, I would (will) purchase the other books in this series and would actually search out more by the author--which means that it was a success. As for the bonus materials--it didn't make a difference to me, but I am one of those people who doesn't watch the deleted scenes on DVDs, so it wasn't really a BONUS for me. If you like the fantasy genre, and need something to keep you interested for a long trip or weekend at the beach--this is a good choice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too June 12, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Aislinn has always followed the rules. Her Grandmother has drilled them into her since she was a young child. Don't stare at invisible faeries. Don't speak to invisible faeries. Don't ever attract the faeries' attention. Aislinn has developed the skill to ignore them. She walks past them without flinching, even when the faeries are pinching or touching others around her like they love to do.

Faeries come in many shapes and sizes and Aislinn has seen them all. She's seen them in the glamours they wear in order to pass as humans and can pick one out of a crowd even when they are trying to blend in. Aislinn has never been surprised by what she has seen them do - that is, until they start breaking the rules.

Faeries don't like steel. It causes them pain and weakens them. Because of that, Aislinn's "safe" place has always been Seth's house. Seth is a long-time friend who happens to live in a converted steel train car. Aislinn always knew that if she could make it there she'd have peace, because the faeries could never follow her into the train yard. But, something has changed. They are creeping closer and closer and paying more attention to her. They are even gathering outside Seth's place.

Aislinn really begins to worry when two faeries, Keenan and Donia, approach her and speak directly to her. She gets away from them as quickly as possible, now hyper-aware of the growing number of faeries surrounding and following her. She hears them say things like, "Do you think she's the one?" Aislinn realizes that in order to figure out what they want from her she is going to have to break the rules she's grown up with all of her life.

Keenan is the Summer King. His mother, the Winter Queen, has limited his powers and is slowly taking over the elements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vivid world of faery August 6, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Aislinn is used to following three rules: don't stare at invisible faeries, don't speak to invisible faeries, and don't ever attract their attention. But suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore. Everything now is on the line: her freedom; her best friend Seth; her life; everything.

Keenan, the Summer King, has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her summer will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become his Summer Queen at any cost--regardless of her plans or desires.

Similar to Holly Black's TITHE and VALIANT, this urban fantasy follows Aislinn as she fights against a persistent Keenan and the idea of turning into the very thing she'd fought against for so long.

Melissa Marr has done a great job of weaving into her tale the world of faery. One of my favorite scenes is the faery-run carnival that only Aislinn can see. I doubt I'll ever look at a carnival in the same way again without wondering if a faery lurks close by! The author has painted a very vivid world of 1800's style faeries colliding with our modern world.

The problem I had with this story is I couldn't connect with the main character. I wanted to see why Keenan had such an attraction to Aislinn and not someone else. Aislinn's tough girl character was believable but she just seemed to be going through the motions without any real emotion to what was happening around her. Seth, her best friend, also was hard to connect with. There is some chemistry later on between the two but the real tension and conflict is between both Keenan and Donia.

The strength of this novel comes from Donia, one mortal who pays a terrible price for her love of Keenan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely (and yes, wicked too) fairy tale of a book. October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was my first faerie/fey book, and what a great introduction it was. I had been reluctant to read this type of book for fear that I just wouldn't be able to relate to the characters. Melissa Marr does a wonderful job at creating this world, while still retaining quite a bit of humanity. Aislinn has always been able to see and ignore faeries, but what happens when one (a king at that) takes an interest in her? This book reads literally like a grown up fairy tale. There's magic, good vs evil battles, romance and a whole lot of tension... I was captivated from start to finish. On a side note, I really enjoyed that this is a series novel, but could be read as a stand-alone as well. It felt complete, whereas so many of the YA series books, do not. 4/5 stars.

More About the Author

Hmm, I'm never good at the bio bit. I used to teach college & bartend, now I write novels. I love to meet new people, to hear their stories, to walk through new streets and see new vistas. I enjoy art in all its guises--graffiti, surrealist paintings, classic sculptures, tattoos, interesting buildings, Renoir, photography . . . Art & nature, they feed my soul & thus my muse.
