Fragile Eternity - Melissa Marr

Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely)
Young Adult
Pages: 400
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: April 21, 2009

Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone—but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her—but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
Once again Melissa Marr draws us in to her magical enchanting world of faeries that coexist with our mortal world. Stunningly and elegantly written, Fragile Eternity, picks up after the events of Ink Exchange, but this time we switch to Seth's story. He's the only mortal left and this is a weakness for all of them. We meet Sorcha, the High Queen and Bananach's sister and quite an interesting and mysterious character. And many surprises and plot twists await. Sadly for me, there was no Irial.

Something about the plot kept me uninterested, but her beautiful writing keep me always engaged. Seth still seems way too perfect for my taste. I thought maybe we would see some flaws he may have now that it's his story... But no. Apparently, he just doesn't have any. Meh. But overall I really enjoyed diving into Marr's awesome world once again. Her character development and her magical story telling will always leave me wanting more.

  2. I ended up fascinated by Sorcha and her sister. And I love Seth. He is so nice and too good for Asilinn IMO.
