Book Review: Wicked Lovely - The Wicked Lovely Series

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.

My Review
When I first got this book, I was so excited that I asked my mom to get me the other books to the "Wicked Lovely Series". It is written by Melissa Marr and is 352 pages long, not even counting the extra content.
Aislinn has seen the fae her whole life and she hasn't had anyone to talk to, except her grandma, until now. Seth, Aislinn's friend, figured out Aislinn's secret and he wants to do anything he can to help. Especially, after the summer king, Keenan, paid Aislinn a visit. Keenan wants Aislinn to become the summer queen to gain the power he needs to defeat his mother, the snow queen. Her fate is sealed as the summer queen, if she survives!
I like how everything was described so beautifully. I also like how Melissa Marr made most of the fae scary and ugly, while in most books and movies, they are beautiful and kind-hearted. At the beginning of each chapter, there is a verse from a 1930-1940 book, which I find cool. It was very slow in the beginning, though, which is sometimes hard for me to get into a book. But I stuck through it and found I was pleased by the end.
