5 starsThe first time I read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr I did not like it It was too dark I was too young to catch the deeper connotations that Marr was communicating If it hadn t been published in that weird in between time when I was pretty current on all the interesting series in my preferred genres and therefore desperate for reading material , I probably never would ve read the second book But it was, and I didAnd it remains my favorite YA series about Fae Aislinn, like all of her female ancestors, has the Sight She can see through faery glamour, magic used to either make the Fae invisible to humans entirely or to make them appear to be human themselves There are many rules her grandmother taught her to ensure her safety, but they re all extensions of a single concept keep the secret.
Faeries don t want to be seen, and if they discover a human who can see them that human will be lucky to simply have their eyes gouged out Like I said Dark.
But that by itself isn t unusualand I love Fae, sooooowhat was my problem This time around, I finally figured it out B c despite improving with the reread, I enjoyed it for the authenticity, for the underlying message I had previously overlooked, for the anticipation of what I know will come nextnot for this story Not for these characters.
Aislinn and KeenanNot a huge fan of either of them at this point Donia, yes Niall, also yes, but not nearly as much as I will in INK EXCHANGE Sethmeh For now, at least.
Part of my dislike of the main characters Aislinn and Keenan is superficial I don t like their names sorrynotsorry Maybe you can completely overlook MEH to blergh names, but I can t A rose by any other name and all that.
By itself that would never be enough to make me turn my nose up at a book, but when I have other issues with those same charactersit compounds And with Keenan, especiallyHe embodies the capriciousness that categorizes the Fae, but he lacks the whimsicality, the charisma, that endears the good version of Fae to me Instead of liking him for his Faeness, I was irritated by his narcissism There wasn t anything specific about Aislinn that I that disliked, but there wasn t anything I did particularly like either As for SethI m not even remotely attracted to this incarnation I got over my fascination with ber pierced Bad Boys who may or may not have a pet snake rolls eyes when I was in high school BUT.
Marr is a true scholar when it comes to fairy folklore, and the aforementioned authenticity is fantastic It s not limited to the physical descriptions of various types of Fae, she weaves the rules for dealing with Fae, the practices, the consequences, the temperaments Keenan excluded , ultimately creating a captivating Fae world overlapping our own This setting, the Wicked Lovely world, is so well established in this first installment that, in hindsight, it s not at all surprising given new main characters, I loved the next book Beyond that, Marr gives us a heroine who despite being backed into a corner, despite escaping the Fae free and clear being an impossibility, grabs the reins of her power, making the best of a situation she wants no part of, but can t escape Aislinn accepts the world as it is and makes it work for her I may not have connected with her, but I respected her SO While I consider this first installment to be significantly weaker than those that follow, it isn t terrible, and I still highly recommend it to anyone who loves the Fae.
Readable but bland.
Most of my dissatisfaction with this book stems from the fact that what passes for a plot with Wicked Lovely would have been used as a sub plot in any other It can be summarised like this KEENAN gives Aislinn a choice between two options AISLINN flees SETH waits for Aislinn KEENAN waits for Aislinn DONIA waits for Aislinn BEIRA issues occasional Ursula like threats AISLINN AISLINN AISLINN makes choice BOOK ends So the entire book revolves around Aislinn, which could have been interesting if Aislinn s interactions showed the slightest spark But no Towards the end, it feels as if other characters start kicking her towards character development because she s not going there by herself.
There s also the fact that Seth was a cardboard prop boyfriend with tattoos If he were secretly an interesting character made one dimensional by love for Aislinn, I would be fine with it well, okay, I wouldn t, but I would bewilling to adjust to that than I am to Seth as he is now But in every scene, he s doing something to help Aislinn, or that revolves around Aislinn There s not even a hint that he ever does anything else or that this is wrong Seth would make a wonderful RL boyfriend, but in fiction, he is extremely boring.
I liked this book a lotthan I thought I would I mean, usually when a book is hyped up a lot my immediate reaction is to roll my eyes and wonder if it s worth the hype I didn t start reading the Harry Potter series until the third one was already out and then I read them all in one sitting So, I m a book cynic and was worried that I would mind trash this baby Ok, first of all the most gorgeous cover ever Provocative, beautiful, and well, well done Harper Collins Here s the thing about the writing, I felt like this was a good book I really enjoyed it, i got caught up on it I liked the concept a lot it just felt like it could ve used onepolish if that makes sense Some of the sections feel disjointed from one another, just in terms of narrative I absolutely love how the main character avoids the fey, but then suddenly it s a huge about face that I didn t quite follow with her I also thought that the relationship between her and the two male characters was interesting but I wanted to fallin love with the King and instead I dunno I liked the human boyAnd that colored how I was reading the rest of the book, I wanted her to have to strugglebut she didn t, but neither did I So, here s my rec d, since I saw a god awful one in VOYA of this book I d buy it I d read it I think this author is only going to get better and better, so I m looking forward to the next book on your pub list But if you have a huge history of reading faery books this one might not be your favorite.
