Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's #1 New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series.

Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.

Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries' coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani's death.

Ani isn't one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin's plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?

    " I liked this book as much as the first one and I am looking forward to reading the fifth book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Miller | 1/29/2014

    " A little bit slower in the beginning, but once the backstory of a relatively new main character is laid out, this story really takes off and goes crazy. So now everything is very well established for the final story when all hell is probably about to collide. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christie | 1/17/2014

    " Didn't like this one as well as the others, but will continue to read the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madeline Anderson | 1/9/2014

    " I simply could not put this book down. Those of you without ARCs, I really do pity you, because...wow. If you take the awesomeness from the first three books and combine them together, you get this book. It is better written, it is exciting, it is romantic, it is sexy, it is bloody, and it is not what you would expect. Melissa Marr really outdid herself, and I am ravenous for more! Of course, now I have to wait longer than everyone who DIDN'T get an ARC, so I'm gonna be anxious for a while...At least I have the first four novels to keep me company! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 1/1/2014

    " To me this felt like a side story to the series.I liked the chemistry between Ani and Devlin but I wasn't suprised by the end.I missed the rest of the guys(Ash,Seth,Kennan & Nial)and wished they could have been in it more often. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy Ahlsen | 12/29/2013

    " Didn't like this one as much as the first three. Hopefully she'll get back into her stride in the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoey | 12/17/2013

    " the beginning of this book is kind of borring but as it goes on you can tell how in love ani and devlin get. i didnt want the book to end but it had an amazing ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Doleanu | 12/15/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michtaeudy | 12/15/2013

    " It started off slow but it was worth reading on. In this book you get to know Devlin, the High Queen's Bloody Hands and Ani, the Gabriel's daughter a lot better. Plus the ending had a surprise twist I never could have imagined. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abernathy | 11/28/2013

    " Melissa marr writes a wonderful world with these fearies. The ending left my leg shaking for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/9/2013

    " This was my favorite book in the series. I really like the characters in this one and I actually liked the way this one ended opposed to the rest in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greenfairylv | 5/3/2013

    " I wasn't sure if this book would get me like the others. Devlin was kind of a prick in the other books and Ani I just found annoying, but I feel in love with both of them. Two characters definitely worthy of their own book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♥Kelsi♫ | 4/1/2013

    " the romance was good, i felt like this wasnt as good as the other books in the series like the 1st one. It was alright for me, it stretch way too long and didn't get to the point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Matzke | 2/18/2013

    " This was my second favorite of the Wicked Lovely books. It kept you on the edge of your seat and had a lot of sexual tension. The only thing I didn't like about it I feel like I shouldn't mention because it could be a bit of a spoiler. It is definetely worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ~Blade~ | 11/26/2012

    " Major improvement from the last three. I quite enjoyed the dark twist and how it was about a member of the court instead of the head. I loved the romantic twist as well. "

    " They just keep getting better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Lorsch | 8/2/2012

    " Honestly? I feel like Marr is making this way more complicated then it needs to be. I didn't feel like I understood Leslie as a character, which made me feel distant throughout the entire novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ciecie | 2/19/2012

    " Sometimes it monotonous reading her books but in the end they are worth her continuous repeating. She could probably say what all happens in her book in three sentences. "
