Friday Finds 2-27-2009

I "found" this author in yesterdays Shelf Awareness newsletter - It is Melissa Marr and the books are Wicked Lovely and Fragile Eternity.

Descriptions (from Fantastic Fiction): Wicked Lovely - The clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in this cool, urban 21st century faery tale.

Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world, and would blind her if they knew of her Sight.

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 and 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! Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working any more, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.

Description (also from Fantastic Fiction) Fragile Eternity - which is due out April 21!

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.

In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.

Those covers are both kind of creepy!

I have never read any books about Fairies--maybe a genre I should challenge myself to try! These actually sound kind of interesting.

I saw your comment on Should Be Reading that you are looking for WWII books. After scrolling through your blog I can't tell if you are open to reading YA books, but one of my fave books of all time is called "Back Home" by Michelle Magorian set in that time period.
