So I finally got around to reading Wicked Lovely. A few years back, I accidentally read Ink Exchange (the second book in the series) without realizing it was a part of a series. As soon as i found out it was a part of a 5 book series, I was more than excited, since I loved it so much!

Wicked Lovely is the story of Aislinn (or Ash). Ash is seventeen years old and for her entire life she could see faeries. When you think faeries, you think cute, innocent and lovable. But, no. The faeries Ash sees are evil, dark, menacing. Her entire life she has tried not to attract their attention and act like she can’t see them, but after meeting Keenan (a fey that wouldn’t stop stalking her), she can’t seem to be able to rid of them or their attention.

What Ash doesn’t know is that Keenan is the Summer King. He has been looking for a queen to reign by his side for his entire life. For centuries, every girl Keenan chose to be his potential Summer Queen, has either become a summer fey of his court, or risked her life for him and now lived with the Winter Chill inside her. The next girl Keenan chose is Ash.

This story was really interesting! It was nice to read about something that’s as unconventional as evil faeries, the Winter Queen and of course, the gorgeous Summer King. Ash’s character is strong, opinionated and animate. She doesn’t just accept her situation and doesn’t fall head over heels over Keenan. She stands for what she believes in, her loved ones and her mortality.

The writing was fantastic, just like I remembered it being in Ink Exchange! I loved the storyline, I loved Donia and Kennan’s story, I loved the amazing bond Seth and Ash have and I especially loved the whole idea of life as a fey. The story was very enjoyable and was a really fun and quick read for me! If you are looking for a book you’re not going to be able to put down- this is the book for you!

The Glossover:
Originality: ★★★★★
Writing: ★★★★★
Cover: ★★★★☆
Overall: ★★★★★

Happy Reading!!
Yael 🙂
