Book #3 in the Wicked Lovely series.
Why I picked it up:
I wanted to complete the series since the books were improving gradually and I absolutely loved the cover!
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.
Definitely the best book from all the Wicked Lovely series books before it. This book followed Seth, who was struggling to fit in the faerie world being a mortal himself. He was certain it wouldn’t help her relation with Aislinn and so he seeks to be a faerie himself. Declined by all his friends, he decides to go to the High Queen Sorcha. He finds a whole different aspect of being a member of Sorcha’s fey. So when he returns, becoming a powerful faerie, he knows he has some things to do, decisions to make.
I loved the focus on Seth as a main character.
- Seth: Artistic, calm yet impulsive, very much in love, intelligent.
- Sorcha: Motherly, true and full of logic. Respected and feared among the fey.
“Choose to be happy. It is what we have all done.”
“As if fixing the little errors would made the big stuff manageable.”
“Loving someone meant letting them be who they were, not caging them.”
“Love and desire aren’t the same.”
