Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments, dark and light, by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from under the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.

From the gentle tones of a story-teller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with . . . or to fear.

Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.

    " Some fantastic short stories collected here; including two that I have been yearning to read for some time now. I finally have 'Old Habits' and 'Stopping Time' - celebrate! The Wicked Lovely fan in me is incredibly satisfied and content now. "

    " ohmigosh I loved this collection. It makes me sad that this is truly the end of the wicked lovely series though. Oh how i wish that series would go on forever. "

    " I'm really glad I read to learn how people's stories ended in Wicked Lovely. I also liked the happy stories. But some of the "nightmares" were totally unnecessary. "

    " Really good, I'm glad that this was written it was all the between stories of what happened that wasnt in the novels. The short stories were amazing I loved them all. "

    " Loved these short stories. Marr is a wonderful story teller and I loved the Wicked series short stories. Love me some Niall and Irial most of all. These stories are magical and full bodied. I would not mind them being turned into full stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Linden | 11/3/2013

    " I liked this book, although in parts the stories would end just as the storyline had you hooked "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/25/2013

    " This is actually a 3.6, so I rounded up. I really liked the short stories, but actually would have preferred fewer Wicked Lovely characters. I wanted more bredth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Llamalover | 10/19/2013

    " Because i have not read the wicked lovely series, some of the stories in here did not make as much sense to me as they would to someone who has read the series. I was still able to figure it out though, and the stories were as exciting as any book would be. I loved the story about the selchie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K. | 10/12/2013

    " I was thrilled to finally this book. I love short stories and it was great to see some of the loose ends from the Wicked Lovely series tied up. Must read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 3/19/2013

    " Honestly, I would give this book 2.5 stars. Not terribly impressive writing but it was fun reading the shorts associated with the Wicked Lovely series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 11/27/2012

    " About half the book was supporting short stories to Wicked Lovely and those made the book for me. The other short stories were ok but the Wicked Lovely stories were why I finished it. The Seth/Niall story (Unexpected Family) was my favorite with Old Habits a close second. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystal | 6/13/2012

    " it was pretty good, it gives a few short stories and some inside looks at familiar authors that capture our creative interests. There are some that i wished would be turned into stories or that they'd continue on a few more pages. Enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shilo | 3/21/2012

    " nice mix of Wicked Lovely shorts (mid and post-series) and stand-alone short stories that packed a punch. "
