I fell in love with the characters even more than I already was.

336 pgs., Paperbook
Library Copy
Second in Wicked Lovely series
From Goodreads:
 
To 17-year-old Leslie, the tattoo is a thing of indescribable beauty, a captivating mark that she must make her own. But this subtle web of eyes and wings brings with it a transformation that no sweet young girl would ever imagine or welcome. Like its predecessor, this stand-alone sequel to Wicked Lovely plunges its youthful heroine into a faery world of almost constant peril. A tantalizing urban fantasy that won't let go.
Opinion:

 
Much darker than Wicked Lovely, but in the end the right decisions were made.


Leslie is depressed. So deeply depressed that she seems to be struggling to breathe.


Niall is struggling to be good, fighting what he finds to be evil within himself.

Irial has been king for so long, that now he seems weak with the responsibility.

I wish we would have seen more of the Summer court as it seems lighter and would help to balance the book.
This is not a easy breezy read, it’s not even a happy read, it’s a dark sad read that will leave you feeling depressed but hopeful. It certainly can play with your emotions, and it’s beautifully written. But I warn you to not read this when you are looking for something cheerful. I do suggest you read it though it’s a beautiful second in the series.

Melissa Marr certainly understood the world of depression.

Rating: 4/5
