From Debbie Wiley Book Reviews
Has becoming the
Summer Queen changed everything for Aislinn and Seth?
The Faerie world is full of intrigue and danger, even from those one
would consider allies. Aislinn is trying to maintain her human ties
while becoming further enmeshed in her role as the Summer Queen- and
thus spending more time with Keenan, the Summer King. Meanwhile, her
relationship with Seth is becoming more strained as the politics keep
getting in the way. Does their love stand a chance?
FRAGILE ETERNITY is the third book in the Wicked Lovely series but
picks up on the storyline and characters from the first novel, WICKED
LOVELY. In fact, reading WICKED LOVELY is practically a requirement in
order to fully appreciate FRAGILE ETERNITY. Otherwise, the reader will
miss the nuances of the relationships and may not understand why
Aislinn and Seth are struggling so hard to remain a couple, even as the
attraction is growing between Aislinn and Keenan.
Aislinn is very different in her new role as Summer Queen. She is being
forced to change, as her focus can no longer solely be on the normal
teenaged girl behaviors and activities. Instead, she has to worry about
the various politics of the Faerie Court, keeping factions from
becoming infuriated, and avoiding the disorder that Bananach is
craving. Her interaction with Donia is a crucial turning point, one
that has me wondering what dark roads Melissa Marr intends to take us
down in future books.
FRAGILE ETERNITY is an aptly named tale. Melissa Marr’s Faerie world
shows the fleeting alliances, friendships, and lifespan of both humans
and the Fae. FRAGILE ETERNITY is a dark tale, captivating the reader
even when the choices the characters make seem oh so terribly wrong.
Intensely compelling, FRAGILE ETERNITY leaves the reader begging for
the next installment.
