Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr


Seventeen year old Aislinn has always been able to see the faerie realm and has carefully followed the rules that her grandmother has told her must accompany her sight. The most important of these is that she must never, ever let the faeries know that she can see them.

So, she is angry and scared when she finds herself being stalked by the Summer King, a powerful member of the court fey. She enlists the help of her (maybe more than) friend Seth, whose boxcar house provides a needed metal barrier unable to be breached by faeries. Together, they must find out what the Summer King wants, and how Aislinn can escape him.

This urban fantasy is fast moving and suspenseful, with a healthy dose of romance and plenty of action. Fans of Holly Black may like this one, and I’ve heard from several fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series who have also given it their stamps of approval.
