I do believe Melissa Marr has found the perfect words to describe the fey. They be wicked lovely. How evil and fascinating can one creature be? Melissa Marr lets us into the beginnings of the faerie world to catch a glimpse. The only thing I didn't quite like was there were no descriptions of the different types. If I hadn't read any previous fairy books I would be a lot more clueless when it came to things in this story. Nymphs, Wood sprites. These could've been explained in greater detail, not just mentioned as if we knew all about them.
Aislinn has always had the ability to see fairies. This is not something you walk around letting people know. You do NOT want fairies to know that you see them! They are dangerous. They are strong. It has ran in Aislinn's blood to see the fey. Her mother and grandmother seen them as well.
It all starts when Aislinn realizes she's being followed by fairies. She can't seem to lose them for long and it continues to happen. The only person she has to turn to for help is her friend Seth. He's always there for her. Always will be. She finally decides to stop and figure out just why it is they are following her only to find that the Summerland King has decided that Aislinn is being drawn to him. He wants her. Him being a fairy and all, mighty and powerful, yeah, he pretty much gets what he wants. Aislinn doesn't see it that way.
