Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A debut that reads like the work of a seasoned pro.” Charles de Lint, author of The Onion Girl
“Melissa Marr adds elegantly to the sub-genre of Urban Faery with this enticing, well-researched fantasy for teens…Marr creates a fully realized world…[Her] lyrical language and sensual imagery capture both the confused emotions and the physicality of adolescence.” Washington Post
“Marr’s faerie world Marr is a fascinating mixture of the ancient and the modern. The story translates beautifully to audio, and narrator Alyssa Bresnahan is pitch-perfect in her delivery. The sexual tension is subtle but makes the story more appropriate for older listeners. Recommend this intriguing fantasy romance to fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series.” School Library Journal
“Enjoyably sultry.” Kirkus Reviews
“As the full extent of Aislinn’s circumstances is revealed, readers will be hooked by her tale and surely pick up the next book.” Kliatt

A good choice

A few awkward moments here and there but definitely worth a listen. There's definitely nothing lacking in the universe Marr creates and the addition of brief pieces of fairy lore help guide you through.
