** spoiler alert ** I loved reading this book so much. I felt it had a slow pace at first, but had it not, it wouldn't have had the same effect on me. I enjoyed learning about this Faerie world and how things worked in it. The writing is so beautiful, and so efficient - I never got bored or felt the urge to skim through anything. I also don't think I've ever been so satisfied with a book's ending like I was with Wicked Lovely, but I guess that is subjective.. I just can't describe the utter joy I was feeling at the end, when Donia and Keenan were able to finally have each other the way they have wanted to for so long. I liked how Seth and Aislinn found an arrangement to be with each other too, but I just didn't care much about what happened to them. I found myself empathizing more with Donia and Keenan's pain and loss. One thing I wish was a little different was the way the confrontation with Beira was executed - I thought it should have been more dramatic, it just felt so casual. I wanted to feel the finality of Beira's defeat, because it was something I anticipated most of the book. Aislinn also got on my nerves quite a bit.. But I don't want to type out all the ways she made me dislike her. Sigh.. Just another boring female protagonist with no attributes or characteristics to set her apart from other girls/to make her worthy of the significant role she plays in the book.
Another thing I felt was odd and rather unrealistic was Aislinn and Seth's relationship at the beginning - it just seems illogical that two "friends" who are physically attracted to each other and who have feelings for one another, can casually hug, hold, and wallow on one another while keeping their feelings "hidden" and without straining the friendship or making it awkward. Regardless, the book was fabulous and I can't wait to complete the series.

Arlene So glad you enjoyed it. :)

kelsie Thanks, I really did!

Pamela Thank you for this review. I only now realize that Aislinn was meant for Seth; and Donia to Keenan.
