Wicked Lovely - Melissa Marr

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.

Aislinn can see fairies. They can't know she sees them. Now she has been picked by the Summer King. Changes are all around. Will she take them? Will she be with Keenan? A modern and twisted faerie tale you will most likely love.

What can I say? Different,exotic. What a debut! It blew me out of proportion. It is written in this absolutely abundant and rich -exquisite- English that took some effort for me to read it. How fascinating, a step out of reality to a faerie world so well described that left me stunned. Those of us who think -I've heard this so many times- that spanish is a richer language, for it has much more vocabulary; don't really know what they are talking about. And obviously do not know as much words as this writer does. And the story is so real-like and so fantastic all at once. I am sinking my head now in to Ink Exchange..
