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: This book wasn't how I expected it to be. I thought it would be a lot more interesting. The description was amazing and also the first half of the book. But the end was disappointing.
Aislinn is used to be able to see faeries.And belives that they are evil. She meets Keenan, she seems to fall in love with him, and belives that she will be the queen of summer.
Keenan is helped by Donia, the winter's girl, the one that Keenan thought would be the queen before. He makes Aislinn come with him somewhere and makes her half faerie, until she will choose either try becoming the queen and killing Beira, the evil winter's queen and Keenan's mother and risk everything, either becoming a summer's girl and risk the whole faerie world. I thought the plot was great, but in the end, Aislinn becomes the summer queen and falls in the arms of Seth, her best friend, and Keenan and Donia become lovers after Donia becomes the new winter's queen.
I was expecting something more risky. Maybe a problem in the faerie world, but everything ended happily.
Conclusion: I was expecting more, especially with such a promissing start. However, the books have no connection between them.
