#41 Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

My Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

Aislinn has always been able to see faeries, as could her mother and grandmother. But she's always lived by Grams's rules: Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries; Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries; and most importantly Rule #1: Don't ever attract faeries' attention.

But now the rules have changed, and Aislinn is no longer safe from the faeries that have begun stalking her. What is it they want from her? And how far are they willing to go to get it? Can Aislinn continue to live by the same rules, ignoring their existence, when she seems to be their prime interest?

I found this debut novel from Melissa Marr an interesting entry into the YA urban fantasy genre. There were a few grammatical mistakes here and there, presumably because this was an Advance Reader's Edition. Like the faeries in Holly Black's novels, these are not your sweet, winged creatures, but reflect the true spirit of the Fae and the various courts.
