I'll be honest and just say that my only reason for reading this is Seth. I wish I hadn't =/

It's like he's not even the same guy. Being in love is not a good look for him apperently, because it turns him into a lovesick puppy. I wonder at what point he lost his balls. maybe Aislinn accidentally burned them off I kept thinking 'BE A MAN AGAIN DAMMIT'. I got fed up with him pretty much when he decided he wants to be a fairy. -insert laughter here- The way I see it: well Seth... with that kind of b...more

The long awaited sequel to WICKED LOVELY is here. Melissa Marr was kind enough to give us INK EXCHANGE, a companion to WICKED LOVELY, where we met other characters from this wildly inventive and tantalizing world, but a true sequel is what we really wanted and now we have it.

Aislinn (Ash) is dealing with what being the Summer Queen means. She has both physical changes and emotional adjustments to come to terms with. She is spending more and more time with Keenan because of Summer Court business...more

So I may be the only girl alive who has qualms with this book. In fact, I had so much trouble that it took me a whopping 5 days to read. Although I read Graceling over the span of 3 months, I actually had only spent 2 days actually reading it because it was a huge read. This means that Fragile Eternity was by far the longest book it has ever taken me to read. If I had it my way, meaning I did not have to mail this book out to a friend, I would have taken another week or so, hoping to drag the pa...more

I was feeling unsure about this series, because I loved Wicked Lovely but felt "meh"-ish about Ink Exchange. Fragile Eternity is a return to the former, but without the wonder (probably because I know that world now).

Seth's journey to be closer to Ash, despite the presence of Keenen and the approach of Summer, is at the heart of this book; the choice he makes is not unexpected, but the ending did take me by surprise. And I have to say I never liked Keenen, so his little "oops" that cost him Don...more

Not as bad as Ink Exchange, but nowhere near as well done as Wicked Lovely, this series is becoming a real disappointment. Too much recapping and then a rush to the inevitable cliffhanger, which is always a danger with series books and a real disaster with this one.

I don't see true long-term success for this series unless Marr can find a way to deliver endings that offer a little closure for readers or at least refine the writing so it isn't all recap, recap, tiny bit of plot, and then the part...more

"Fragile Eternity" is the sequel to "Wicked Lovely", but the third in Melissa Marr's "Tales of Faerie". Chronologically, it takes place after both WL and "Ink Exchange", although you do not need to read INK to understand this book. However, this book relies heavily on events from WL, and having read INK will allow you pick up on some subtleties.

After the events in "Wicked Lovely" (and "Ink Exchange"), Aislinn is now the Summer Queen, Donia is the Winter Queen, and Seth is still just a mortal (al...more

I was really disappointed with this book. I had a hard time even finishing it. By about 2/3 of the way through, I seriously disliked all the characters. Keenan is... ugh. Donia has always been a jerk, but in this book she really takes it to an extreme. I can tell that the author wants us to feel sympathetic to Don, because of her "tragic circumstances", but every major character in this book is dealing with as much or more than Don, and her judgemental and horrible behavior towards them killed a...more

I absolubtely loved this book. The first two books were really good, but this one was superb. After twilight, this series has become my fave YA series.Although you should read the first two books in order to apreciate well this one, do not read this book without haven't read the first two.

I usually read paranormal romance for adults, so I wasn't expecting to find this series that interesting. But I did. I love everything about it: The characters, the story, the events, everything. I couldn't s...more

If you are a fan of the Wicked Lovely series, you are going to love this sequel. It’s the best book of the series by far. Fragile Eternity begins right where we left off on Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange. I’d recently read Ink Exchange, but it had been a while since I’d read Wicked Lovely, but fortunately I didn’t have any problems getting right back into the story.

I love Melissa’s Marr’s writing, and I think I enjoyed it even more this time after reading her previous two books. It’s very lyric...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. I did enjoy it, but not as much as Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange (the latter being my favorite of the series). This book just didn’t have the pace of the previous two. It felt very much like a transition book; its purpose being to set the stage for dramatic events that will occur later in the series. The series' focus back on Aislinn, Seth, Keenan and Donia made the story feel a little repetitive at times, since much of their intricate relationship was has...more

Fangs for the Fantasy
The fae courts stand on the cusp of conflict – conflict brought by Bananach, ancient faerie of war who longs for the courts to march against each other.

But her machinations are finding success not because of the fae’s bloodlust, but because of the conflicted emotions and jealousies of the fae rulers. Niall, holding grudges for Summer’s failure to protect Leslie is looking for an excuse to slaughter in revenge. Aislinn is torn by her love for Seth and her powers as Summer Queen drawing her toward...more

Whoah!!! My head is is thrumming from all the new found faerie knowledge I now possess. Melissa does a fantastic job of creating a visual environment for me to lose myself in, in the world of faerie mixed with human reality. The constant learning of faerie law, politics and existence doesnt stop with the first book, Wicked Lovely. It certainly continues with Ink Exchange and right through Fragile Eternity.
Without handing out spoilers, Fragile Eternity is a wonderful read. Following Seth through...more

Can't wait for this book! It is a true sequel to "Wicked Lovely"!! (Unlike "Ink Exchange" that was just a companion novel.)

------------
Wow! As much as I loved the previous books by Melissa Marr, this one is even better! And it's LONGER, too! 390 PAGES!! FRAGILE ETERNITY is such a perfect title for this book. It describes so many parts of the story. It really dives into Aislinn adjusting to being the Summer Queen, Seth dealing with her new life and responsibilities, Keenan coming into his own wit...more

Fragile Eternity begins where Ink Exchange ends. The young Aislinn has taken on her new role as the Summer Queen and has accepted her transformation as a faery queen. She is still coming to grips with her new life that is filled with both wonderment and danger. Aislinn wants to stay as close to mortal as she can but each day she is one step closer to turning her back on her human side. Her anchor is her mortal boyfriend, and love of her life, Seth keeps her grounded. Seth adores Aislinn and want...more

My review can also be found on Reading Lark: http://readinglark.blogspot.ca/2012/0...

When the last book in the Wicked Lovely series came out, I reread (mostly skimmed) all the previous books so the story would be fresher in my mind. Surprisingly, I found myself enjoying these books much more the second time around. Perhaps it was because I was already familiar with the general story line, but I found the more minor details made a lot more sense already knowing the bigger picture.

As much as I int...more

For those unfamiliar with or new to the series, FRAGILE ETERNITY is the third book in Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely world and the long-awaited direct sequel to Wicked Lovely itself. The painful and beautiful Ink Exchange was more of a companion novel to Wicked Lovely and followed Aislinn's friend Leslie. FRAGILE ETERNITY picks up shortly after the end of Ink Exchange and divides its time between the four original principals--Aislinn, Seth, Keenan, and Donia. All of them are struggling to deal wit...more

The sequel to Wicked Lovely, Fragile Eternity picks up a few months after book #2 in the series, Ink Exchange ends. The courts are in disarray due to the new monarchs. War is using this to its advantage. Until one thing changes it all and changes the was Aislinn looks at her future and the future of her world.

To say any more would give away so much of the plot. But rest assured that when you finish this you will be clamoring for the sequel to it, and the series, not due out for almost two years....more

Aislinn cries. Seth waits around. 389 pages and it's finally over.

Fragile Eternity brought to fruition all the hopes that I had after reading Wicked Lovely. I've heard from a lot of people that this is truly the second book in the series, instead of Ink Exchange, and for the most part I agree. However, I appreciate Melissa Marr's way of telling the story, through bits and pieces and from different peoples' perspectives. I like that we as readers get to see the same world and same events from a number of different perspectives.

If the monster theme of A Great an...more

I got up to 20% of the book when I decided to call it quits so my review may not be that accurate

I read Wicked Lovely and it was okay...and decided to skip Ink Exchange to jump on the bandwagon with Fragile Eternity. For one thing, Melissa Marr delivers the best titles and character names.If only her plots were that good. After being dissatisfied with Wicked lovely, I felt nice enough to offer Marr a second chance with Fragile Eternity.

About a couple of chapters throughout the book, I was given...more

God, will they just go to war already?! We know it's going to happen!

To say I'm dissapointed would be putting it lightly. The book lacks an actual plot for one thing. A lot of it WAS in fact Aislinn's romantic dabblings, not so much during the last 100 pages, but that was becuase the shift of perspective was focused mainly on Seth.

Here's another issue: Keenan is an asshole. I liked him enough in Wicked Lovely, but I don't know what went wrong. All of a sudden he's going around acting like he...more

Anybody else get slightly weirded out by Seth in this book? I admired his mature handling of the whole Ash-Keenan situation in Wicked Lovely, so the whole green eyed thing he has going on in Fragile Eternity was annoying.
It's strange but even in Wicked Lovely I sensed something about Seth was a little off; he could come across as pretty strange and even kinda sinister at times. The creepy factor shoots up in this book; I have a feeling he could turn into a bit of a badass, especially since Niall...more
The Literary Bystander (nxlee)
In a Nutshell: Bananananach (whatever her name was) is trying to cause chaos and bring a war because she's bored and basically announces what everyone knows. Seth is a danger to their world because he knows much about them and has a lot of privilege/freedom within it because of the people who knows. After all, he is going out with Aislinn, total BFFLs with Niall and on relatively good terms with Donia. Aislinn and Seth are trying to stay together regardless of the fact that Aislinn is going to r...more

Oh, this one is hard to rate. At times I was frustrated by it, at times I hated it, but by the end I was enjoying it. For the most part the first half reads like an annoying teen soap opera. The ending to Wicked Lovely was satisfying, but also a recipe for disaster at the same time and that is basically where this one starts out.
Keenan is in love with Donia, but will sacrifice that relationship to be with Ash for the good of the summer court. (I really dislike Keenan more and more.)

You would think that once the malevolent Winter Queen Beira’s reign was destroyed and the Summer King, Keenan, was restored to full power when he found his Summer Queen, Aislinn, that the this alternative faerie world, located in Philadelphia, would be peaceful again. But it’s not. The monarchs of all three faery courts have changed hands, and former friendships (Niall, Keenan’s former advisor, now the king of the Dark Court) and flames (Donia, the new Winter Queen) will become enemies to be war...more

The thing about Melissa Marr is that she really knows how to WRITE. She defines the genre, for the urban supernatural, the kickass not-your-little- sister's-faery, the love triangle, and the sprawling, operatic saga of court politics. She could, as they so often say on American Idol, write the phone book. Fangirl spewing aside, FE is my favorite Melissa Marr book, though I have loved Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange for different reasons. As the tensions between courts build, alliances shift, char...more
Heather
Fragile Eternity is the best installment of Marr's chronicles of faerie to date as Marr ups the ante in this beautiful tale of love and choice. Marr is a brilliant writer and has the marvelous ability to wind delicious threads of tension and inevitability into her novels despite all of the choices available. That's the thing that I love most about her books so far. The choices you want to make are never the choices available. More importantly, every character remains a delicious shade of gray. E...more
