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.

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."

Review:

‘This [is a] magical novel... the first book in a trilogy that will guarantee will have you itching for the next instalment. * * * *’. Bliss

“Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into” Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

“The fantasy of being pursued by two young men is alluring in itself, but when one is a pierced and tattooed sexy outsider and the other is a blindingly beautiful King of Faery, how much better can it get? Readers will beg for a sequel” Washington Post

"This is a magical novel... the first book in a trilogy that will guarantee to have you itching for the next instalment. * * * *" Bliss

"It is a read that pushes boundaries and is not afraid to be honest. All the things that make a great teen novel are there, including angst and romance, but in a refreshingly edgy way that may well entice a new audience to teen fiction. 'Wicked'!" From Bump to Grump

"An assured debut... I look forward to seeing Marr's future work." Locus Magazine

"I thought this book had a really great storyline and writing style... The alternative universe was well-explained, and the plot, though complex, was not difficult to grasp. I think anyone over 12 years old should read this book, or they would be missing out on something brilliant."
Red House Reader, aged 13

‘Riveting and dark: I love this tale of a smart, tough girl who walks the razor's edge between an ancient fairy curse and her future!’ Tamora Pierce
