Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

        
Wicked Lovely
(Wicked Lovely #1)
by Melissa Marr
Summary from Goodreads:

"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."

Rating:

Melissa Marr has captivated me with "Wicked Lovely". It's truly a modern fairy tale. No damsels-in-distress, no prince-to-the-rescue, but a definite twist in the faery world. The story keeps you questioning what's going on throughout the first half of the book then suddenly bursts you with every action and emotion in the remaining chapters. 

Although, I feel that it lacked a bit of action; I still enjoyed reading this.
