Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty—especially if they learn of her Sight—and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.

Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.

Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.

Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.

But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost—regardless of her plans or desires.

Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.

Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st century faery tale.

My Review
Aislinn has always been able to see faeries, as could her mother and grandmother. But she's always lived by Grams's rules: Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries; Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries; and most importantly Rule #1: Don't ever attract faeries' attention.

But now the rules have changed, and Aislinn is no longer safe from the faeries that have begun stalking her. What is it they want from her? And how far are they willing to go to get it? Can Aislinn continue to live by the same rules, ignoring their existence, when she seems to be their prime interest?

I found this debut novel from Melissa Marr an interesting entry into the YA urban fantasy genre. There were a few grammatical mistakes here and there, presumably because this was an Advance Reader's Edition. Like the faeries in Holly Black's novels, these are not your sweet, winged creatures, but reflect the true spirit of the Fae and the various courts.

This author is one I hadn't heard of but the blurb was irresistible.

Oh well, I'm the first here to say that I'm not hooked :-(
I found the book slow at the beginning. After about 50 pages it began to get much better. Still I found the protagonist was boring, the other characters didn't interest me much and that I did not enjoy the story. Therefore I decided to put it down and hope to find a new reader for it soon.
