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.


When I think about all the fae books I've read I can't believe that it took me this long to get to this one.  When I got my first eReader this was the the first book I picked up because I got a short by Melissa Marr that was part of the series for free.  I just never got around to reading it.

I thought it was fantastic.  Aislinn was the perfect heroine and despite this weird love square thing I actually couldn't decide who to root for.  I loved Seth, Keenan and Donia just as equally!  

The story starts off quickly with Donia's quick test so you feel as if maybe you missed something.  You're off balance.  But then things start getting really good and I found myself engrossed.  I was afraid that, being a series, I would be left on some kind of cliffhanger, but she ends the story nicely with the promise of more to come.  One could be satisfied with that ending and never read another book in the series, but I now have to read them all!
