Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone—but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery ...
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her—but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.
"I can't see what you'll do now; too much of my essence lives in you. I know, however, that you are quite capable of anything you want to be. You are someone who will slay dragons, who will do feats worthy of ballads"
Although I'm very fond of Melissa Marr's Faery world and enjoyed her previous novels, I have to -sadly- admit that her third output isn't as intriguing as its predecessors. For almost 400 pages we're constantly reminded that Seth is mortal but wants
..." to be with Ash forever, thus become an immortal Faery himself, while Ash is torn between her Faery duties in the Summer court and her love for Seth and Summer King Keenan who loves Winter Queen Donia but must try to have some sort of relationship with Ash. This is repeated over and over again all through the book ad nauseam. You'd think that when Seth finally strikes the deal with Sorcha things are going to go smoothly... think again! For another 100+ pages the almighty Queen and Seth himself turn into the most boring characters ever, while nothing happens in the Summer and Winter courts - although we're sometimes brought into their surroundings only to read more of Ash and Keenan's usual inner torments. Seriously, we get it! Now can we actually read the story?!Continua...Nascondi
