Regardless of her plans or desiresSuddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working any and everything is on the line her freedom her best friend Seth her life everythingFaery intrigue mortal love and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty first century faery ta Aislinn has always followed the rules Her Grandmother has drilled them into her since she was a young child Don't stare at invisible faeries Don't speak to invisible faeries Don't ever attract faeries' attention Aislinn has developed the skill to ignore them She walks passed them without flinching even when the faeries are pinching or touching others around her like they love to do Faeries come in many shapes and sizes and Aislinn has seen them all She's seen them in the glamours they wear in order to pass as humans and can pick one out of a crowd even when they are trying to blend in Aislinn has never been surprised by what she has seen them do – that is until they start breaking the rules Faeries don't like steel It causes them pain and weakens them Because of that Aislinn's safe place has always been Seth's house Seth is a long time friend who happens to live in a converted steel train car Aislinn always knew if she could make it there she'd have peace because the faeries could never follow her into the train yard But something has changed They are creeping closer and closer and paying attention to her They are even gathering outside Seth's place Aislinn really begins to worry when two faeries Keenan and Donia approach her and speak directly to her She gets away from them as uickly as possible now hyperaware of the growing number of faeries surrounding and following her She hears them say things like Do you think she's the one Aislinn realizes that in order to figure out what they want from her she is going to have to break the rules she's grown up with all her life Keenan is the Summer King His mother the Winter ueen has limited his powers and is slowly taking over the elements Days are colder and eventually everything will be covered in ice unless Keenan finds the girl who is meant to be his Summer ueen Together they would have the power to overcome the Winter ueen's chill Keenan thinks Aislinn is the one and she is in danger because of it The Winter ueen will do everything she can to prevent her son from getting the power he needs to overthrow her Another problem of course is Aislinn doesn't want to be Summer ueen She has avoided faeries all her life and she sure doesn't want to become one now Especially when her feelings for Seth have developed into than friendship and becoming the Summer ueen would mean spending an eternity with Keenan Melissa Marr has written a wonderfully inventive story that incorporates actual uotes from books written on the subject of faeries dating back to the 1800's Her ability to keep a complicated story with several important characters clear to the reader is phenomenal The relationship she creates between Aislinn and Seth is heartwarming leading the reader to fall in love right along with them If you aren't usually a fan of faerie stories you might want to give this one a try The blending of the realistic world and the world of the fey is masterfully done You'll almost believe faeries are all around you
