Wicked Lovely – Melissa Marr

wicked_lovely

High school junior Aislinn and her grandmother have followed strict rules all their lives to hide their ability to see faeries because faeries don’t like it when mortals can see them, and faeries can be very cruel. Only the strongest faeries can withstand iron, however, so Aislinn prefers the city with its steel girders and bridges. But now Aislinn is being stalked by two of the faeries who are able to take on human form and are not deterred by steel. What do they want from her?  One is Keenan, the Summer King, who is certain that Aislinn is the woman he must marry, Keenan shows up as a charismatic new student at her high school, unaware that she sees his true form. He’s determined to court her and is puzzled by her rebuffs. Suddenly, none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe is working anymore, but things aren’t going as Keenan expects either. Both will have to change, make startling compromises and enlist surprising allies if they want to break free from the wicked game that has ensnared them.

A well-written fantasy that delves into a world of dark faeries and the mortals that are fascinated by and also fear them.  Aislinn and her mortal friends are strong characters that draw you in, but you grow to understand the human side of the fey, too.  Try this one.  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
