Summary from HarperTeen:

Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. 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. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost—regardless of her plans or desires.
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.
Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st century faery tale.

My Review:

      I was excited about starting this series from the get-go. After finishing the Iron Fey series by: Julie Kagawa, I needed to get started on some more faery stuff! This seemed like the perfect solution, and I had heard lots of marvelous things about this series beforehand. And now I have my own marvelous things to say about it!
    Aislinn's ability to see faeries is apparent on the first pages of the book, which I liked. It automatically hooked me onto something unique about Aislinn's character. She seemed pretty smart about avoiding the faeries, until she met Keenan.
    It seems like Keenan has real feelings for Aislinn, but he also talks about courting her like it is a duty he has to fulfill, all business. It confused me a bit at first as to where his true feelings lay. As for Aislinn, she seemed to be constantly swallowing her feelings for him, no matter that they always came back up eventually. This definitely qualifies as an potential love triangle because of her blossoming relationship with Seth, that she isn't ashamed of.
     Seth was one of those eccentric people who seemed a bit off to me at first but I came to love him a lot. His eccentricity, I found, was what really made him different and compatible with Aislinn and her Sight. The fact that he lives in train cars was so cool and mystic to me!
    My favorite character that I really connected with and understood was Donia. She was in so much pain all the time and she brushed it off knowing that she must fulfill the vow she took when she took on the Winter Queen's chill, all because she loved Keenan that much. She seemed to be just hanging on all through the book until the end, not recognized or credited enough for the risks she took and the love she still secretly held for Keenan.

    The book in all was awesome. It was paranormal fantasy but there was a lot of interpersonal things going on too that would be found in a contemporary novel. The perfect balance. Now my desire to read Ink Exchange has peaked again writing this review!

I started this book a few months back, but wasn't able to get into it. Definitely going to give it another shot now. Thanks for the review!
