This book was a bit difficult to rate. I didn't know whether I wanted to give it a three or a four. A three because I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the second volume... but I did enjoy it and didn't find too many faults in this volume so I just went with a four. Plus, I have been somewhat of a fan of the novels so... I guess I can just say this. If you aren't a huge fan of the series, then I would rate this a three. If you are, a four. Alright onwards!

I can't believe it's over. I was actually...more
I liked seeing Keenan again, and maybe? (kind of?) getting a peek at his trips to desert. (view spoiler) The story line is connected to the Wicked Lovely series and shows that Melissa Marr really knows how to put together a world of not-so-loosely connected characters and do it very well. Again, character development and stro...more
Thank God for Melissa Marr, seriously. In an ocean full of been there-done that - or, as our friend Gwen would say, "Same Shit, Different Author" - Marr's stories have formed an oasis of sorts for us. They're beautiful, tragic, unique, and captivating - Wicked Lovely is one of the best contemporary series out there, not to mention one of our favorites. Which is why we were so very EXCITE to find out that Marr had done a Wicked Lovely manga.

Well, that and because manga is AWESOME.

The best part is...more
i wasn't really sure what to expect, so i think i was slightly disappointed with the way things ended. it makes sense, but i think i wanted more action, tension, suspense. it all just seemed a little too easy.

as in the first two, i enjoyed seeing the depictions of donia and keenan as well as the rest of the fairy world. i'm still a big fan of rika, although jayce still hangs too much in the background for me. i also find myself liking shy more and more as i learn more about him and what makes hi...more

They gave alot of information in a short ammount of space. Though I liked how it was done and characters were easier to follow things just don't line up. If keenen was gone for months where was he? Traveling ever where ok.... but how is he then back to don so fast when Tina shows up. I just think it was a whole story in a short ammount of space.
I honestly have no idea what to say. It wasn't awful? But it wasn't engaging either; this elicited zero emotional response from me. :l Well the Wicked Lovely series has always been hit or miss for me, I wasn't into all of the books either. I guess I'll just slot the manga into the miss category. 2 stars

Awesome ending to a cute story and great way to segway into the the last book. The art again is fantastic and I feel I get a look at how Donia and Keenan really look in the books. This is a great tribute to the series and anyone who love the series should check it out.
Great conclusion to this mini-series! I'm in love with the artwork ^^ I'm so excited this is being adapted into an entire novel (or at least one based on it)! Re-reading vol.2 and then this one made me realize how much I miss Melissa Marr's fairies and their world :(
Not a huge fan of manga... nor of how Keenan comes off in this series. Glad I finished it since I had read the first two but I won't be revisiting it anytime soon.

I've read some of it at my library, I haven't gotten to finish it yet, but I want to. I can't wait to Half price has this.
I love this little trilogy. Sad it's over. I really like Rika and Jayce, and I loved the images of Donia.

I loved this volume the best! I love the pictures of Donia, one of my favorite characters.
I didn't really understand it...kind of confusing plot...
Loved the whole series.
