Description: Wicked Lovely is a young-adult modern day fantasy novel by Melissa Marr. This book centers on modern times and is focused on a teenage girl named Aislinn. She has a special ability called the Sight which allows her to see the fae in the world.
Aislinn is faced with many choices in this young-adult novel. She ends up getting stalked by a pair of fairies who are trying to woo her. She must make the decision whether to get help from her mortal friend Seth or to fight this fight herself. Other then that she also must make the decision to fall in line with the fairies and abide by what they ask and demand of her.
Reaction: Eh, this novel was entertaining. Slightly disappointing after the previous few that I have reading. It was a good story but had a habit of dragging on. A lot of build up for a small ending.
The writing itself was lovely and finally did pull me in when the action started in the last few chapters, but the draw in for the that action took too long. The pacing was not fast enough for what I usually look for in a book, but may be appealing to others.
As for the quadrangle of love interests, I like how it ended. Went where I wanted – and expected – it would go.
Rating: For this book I think I will give it 3 stars out of 5. Interesting story, not enough draw.
