Summary on the back of the book:
Rule #3: Don't stare at invisable faeries.
Rule #2: Don't speak to invisable faeries.
Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. When the rules that have kept Aislinn safe from them stop working, everything is suddenly on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
Faery intruige, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first centry faery tale.

About the Author:
Melissa Marr (from the inside of the book) -
Although I was voted "most likely to end up in jail" in high school, I decided to get an MA and teach Lit and Gender Studies to college students across the country. Along the way, I've been unable to resis trying new things - including working an archaeological dig, slinging drinks at a biker bar, and getting farulous tattoos.
I call all of this research for my writing. To fill my craving for new experiences, I've lived in Pennysylvania, North Carolina, and southern California, and I plan to keep roaming with my family as widely and as often as possible. This year, I think, I'm living in Virginia.
Please help feed my addiction to meeting interesting new people by visiting me on the web at http://www.melissa-marr.com/ .

My Thoughts:
This was a good book, but it was kind of slow. I liked how Aislinn kept refusing Keenan, and how it was sorta supernatural with the faeries, but I don't know. I don't really like it, but I do. I'm sort of in the middle.
It definatly is for ages 15+ because of the things they do and the language. So if you're 15 or older, you should check it out and tell me if it's worth it, because I just can't decide.

  1. I love these books :D But personally, I am more in love with the characters than the actual story

  2. I like the characters a bit more, too. It's still a good story though, it just needs a little umph.
