Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty — especially if they learn of her Sight — and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost — regardless of her plans or desires.Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st century faery tale.

I really liked it till the end. The ending fizzled out though. All the characters were so strong, then we were left hanging as to what happened to Lily's siblings in the scheme of things! I am hoping there will be a sequel.

Not what I was hoping for. The storyline held a lot of promise, but I didn't like the way it was written. Very little descriptions were given in the book such as what places looked like, the characters weren't well fleshed out- they seemed to have very little character development and substance- which made it difficult for me to sympathize with the forced love connections, and the story really was highly predictable and in the end kind of a bore to read. I wish more dynamics between relationships and characters had been given, that the supposed main love conflict had been less anticlimactic and that it could've juts been a better book.
Not to put down people that liked it, but I didn't feel very interested in it. I read the description for the new book to see if it would spark any intrigue but I got nothing, so I won't be continuing this series.

Honestly if you are looking for a good teen book on fey involving mortals and fey royalty, read the Glimmerglass series or the Iron Fey or something.

I really liked it, but the ending lacked any tension. It was like the villains stopped trying.

I loved this book but I didn't really like the ending.

Bit of a slow start, but the pace picked up and the plot gained good momentum by the end. At first I was only semi-interested in the characters, but by the end, they'd become people I wanted to know and spend more time with. Looking forward to the next books.

This novel is very urban which will be a nice change from some of the vanilla ya books out there. It is also a bit more sexy which older teens will really appreciate. The story line is good and has a nice twist, and the chapters are headed with encyclopedic-like information on the fey and those with the sight, which I really liked.

Wicked Lovely was a wonderful book. The plot was a little flimsy, but enjoyable and smooth and at least it had a purposeful-not-really-love-triangle-love-triangle. As in one couple wasn’t really in love, but there was a purpose for why they would be together. And even better, the people who actually were in love got together! No abandonment, like real true love should be. Ash made me very, very happy. She turned into one kick a** girl and I admire her guts, persistence, and awesomeness. And I love Seth, he’s someone I would love to love. Piercings and all. Very diverse characters and a good plot, I loved it.

“You're at home?" She could hear him moving around..."I'll let you go then."
"What if I don’t want you to?" he said.
She heard the music as he walked toward his room, some sort of jazz. Her heart sped up, thinking of him stretched out on his bed too, "Good night, Seth."
"So you’re running again, then?” One of his boots thudded on the floor.
"I'm not running."..
"Really?"
"Really. It’s just--"She stopped.
"Maybe you should slow down, so I can catch you." He paused, waiting. He seemed to do that more & more lately, make statements that invited her to admit something dangerous to their friendship. When she didn’t answer he added, "Sweet dreams, Ash.”

“She stood in his kitchen, watching him toy with the ring in his lip. It wasn't quite that he was biting it, but sucking it into his mouth. He did that when he was concentrating. It isn't sexy. He's not sexy. But he was, and she was staring at him like a fool. "wow" she whispered (.....)"Wow, huh?" His voice was low, husky. His chair creaked as he stood. His footsteps seemed strangely loud as he closed the couple yards between them. Then he was beside her. "I can work with wow”
