As many of you know, I am a HUGE Melissa Marr fan. So much so that she is a large part of the reason I decided to finally start writing last year. I have enjoyed Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange and continue to refer to them when I am “researching” ways to describe certain kinds of scenes, or pull off a believable (and smoldering) YA romance.
So, I was more than a little eager to read Fragile Eternity, the third installment in her Faerie books. I was in the middle of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare when I got the book, frantically trying to finish it so I could start. I stayed up VERY LATE Sunday and Monday and was thrilled wen I could start Melissa’s book on Tuesday.
Let me tell you, the story did not disappoint.
Fragile Eternity focuses on the Seth, Aislinn, Keenan relationships, something I missed in Ink Exchange (I think we already know I have a little character crush on Seth!). Taking the reader through the far reaches of the Faerie realm, Melissa does an amazing job of showing the complex relationships between the various characters, and the impact this Sighted mortal (Seth) has on all of the courts.
The book did leave me hanging – anxiously awaiting another installment (I hate it when that happens). But, cliff-hanger and all, it absolutely did not disappoint.
What have you guys read recently? I am always looking for new books to read.
And by the way, I loved City of Bones also. Look for a review of that series once I finish the other two books, City of Ashes and City of Glass.
