stopping time & old habits
wicked lovely series between #2 & #3
published 2010 & 2011
Leslie walked away from the Dark Court, determined to reclaim her life and live it on her own terms—even if it meant leaving behind the two faeries who love her. She knows Niall and Irial watch over her, and she would give almost anything to keep them from hurting. But she resists the pull to be with either one of them. Someone knows about Leslie's past, however, and is intent on using her to reach the fey. And he doesn't care who gets hurt.
Recently anointed king of the Dark Court, Niall struggles to forge a new relationship with his subjects—and with the former Dark King, Irial, his once-friend, once-enemy, and now possible-advisor.
Of the fae, when a mortal touches Gancanagh they become obsessed and begin to wither away from want. That's pretty much how I feel about the Wicked Lovely series.
In retrospect, these books were ridiculously unnecessary, but I loved them. When I finished Ink Exchange I wasn't ready to be done with Leslie, Irial and Niall's story. I thought more could be told and this was perfect. I can see how both of these set up the next stories and it only makes me want to read them more!
