Library Loot 3-11-2009


I went to the library Monday night with my daughter. It was mainly to get movies for her and my boy - since they were going to be in a car for about 14 hours during this week. But, I cannot walk into a library without getting a book! I had also gone there over the weekend to pick up one that was on hold. So I know am also going to try to read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and Adam by Ted Dekker.



Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr


Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the 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 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.
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first-century faery tale. (Watch for Fragile Eternity - next book - to be featured in Mailbox Monday next week!)




Adam by Ted Dekker

It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking.

He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of sixteen young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings.

What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After sixteen hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead.

Resuscitated after twenty minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's see the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks.Nothing- not even desperate, dangerous attempts to re-experience his own death- seems to bring him closer to finding the killer.

Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life. . .his sanity. . .his very soul.

I hope you share your thoughts on the Dekker book. I haven't read that one.

Adam was really good! I need to pick up Wicked Lovely too - especially since I just got an arc of Fragile Eternity :)
