Book one in the Wicked Lovely series didn't disappoint me at all! I really didn't know what it was about when I picked it up, and I was really surprised to find out it was about Fairies.

Here's the low down:
All teenagers have problems, but few of them can match those of Aislinn, who has the power to see faeries. Quite understandably, she wishes that she could share her friends' obliviousness and tries hard to avoid these invisible intruders. But one faery in particular refuses to leave her alone. Keenan the Summer King is convinced beyond all reasoning that Aislinn is the queen he has been seeking for nine centuries. What's a 21st-century girl to do when she's stalked by a suitor nobody else can see? A debut fantasy romance for the ages; superlative summer read

The story flows along really well, no dragging moments where you're waiting for something to happen. The characters are solid and well "built", for lack of a better term. I really like Seth in particular, he's that kind of reformed playboy that every girl kinda wishes they could have - even if it's just in their minds. (hehe)

The only thing that literally drove me out of my mind during this story was the main girls name - Aislinn. It is Irish, and very appropriately to the story line, means vision or dream.

Seth calls her Ash for short, sorting out that the name in fact is pronounced Ash-Lynn - however I couldn't say it like that. When I read it all I saw was Aslan - like the big furry lion in Narnia. And (my GOD) they used her name so often (more then I think was really needed, to be honest, or maybe I just think that because reading it made me crazy) I couldn't just skip it, or say "Ash" when I did. It was like a little trap that my brain couldn't wrap it's head around...I just wanted to say it phonically....aaahhh! glitch, smoke......brain has stopped working...

Sigh, the odd things that bother me...lol. I managed to to get over it, a little and will continue with the series. I won't let a little thing like annoyingly spelled names stop me from a good story. Plus, I miss me some Seth!

I give this book a 4 Star rating.
