Can i just say that Irial is among my fave characters in WL series (besides Devlin and Keenan)?

There's really not much in here though, just answers on unaswered questions in Ink Exchange. mostly Stopping Time revolved on Leslie-Iri-Niall love triangle (dunno if it is fit to call them that since they all love each other). Then Marr delved on Iri-Niall's complicated relationship in Old Habits.

what i love about Irial: he knows what he wants (and he goes after it), he knows what he is (and isn't af...more

Stopping Time is a dark and hauntingly beautiful glimpse at what happens shortly after Ink Exchange leaves off. Melissa Marr never fails to disappoint, when it comes to bringing the stories that she tells to life with captivating attention to detail and dark beguiling imagery that has a way of drawing readers in and capturing their attention. It was wonderful to see Irial, Nial, and Leslie together again even if only from a distance in some instances. Stopping Time was so much more than just the

Oh this was GOOD. Irial/Nial/Leslie are one of my favorite polyamorous trios in fiction and both of these short stories give you glimpses of their lives inbetween books. They also let you know that Irial and Nial have been having contact with Leslie, regardless of their protests to the contrary. It's not a lot of contact, but it's enough to whet the whistle for more.

These stories are moments in time and as that they are superb. However, they are just that and so without knowledge of the Wicked...more

Stopping Time

I really enjoyed this short story because I liked reading more about Leslie and her realtionship with Irial and Niall. I liked reading about her trying to move on with her life while still keeping contact with the two fairie she loves. We also saw a soft side to Iri and his love for both Leslie and Niall, which I liked. Overall, another great story by Melissa Marr.

I really enjoyed stopping time much more than old habits, but they were both decent. The strange love-triangle becomes a little more explained... even though I sort of felt incomplete after reading this because I wanted to see more... but alas it shall not come. A good read if you like the Wicked Lovely series.
Cathy
Stopping time is sweet (if dark, as usual). Old Habits is very adult emotionally. I don't think I'd have gotten much of it as a kid, but kids these days are more sophisticated. Both are fun stories, worth the price for fans of the series.
Courtney
You can also find these stories in Marr's collection of short stories, Faery Tales & Nightmares.
Leanne
I was so glad to find this book. It answered so many of the questions that I had during the series, particularly after reading Ink Exchange.
Viv
Stopping Time shows the bittersweet Leslie-Iri-Niall love triangle. I have to say Irial is now my favorite character in the Wicked Lovely Series.
luisa
i loved it. both short stories tell us more about the relationship of leslie, niall and irial and i love all three of them so very much.
Anne
I read this first when it was release on the Rath I think. Stopping Time was also added to my paperback copy of Ink Exchange.
Ashley
Wonderful additions to Ink Exchange. I'm saddened by what Leslie must go through. Still hoping Niall can work it out with her.
Louisa
Oh, this was a great introduction to Devlin, and The High Court, and yeah, loved it!
Brianna
was okay for being about lesile, irial and niall, but i am not a big fan about them.
Jenn
Specifically, I liked "Stopping Time" and was ambivalent toward "Old Habits."
