In the third mesmerizing tale in Melissa Marr’s #1 New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series, old friends become new enemies—and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.

Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone, but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.

Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her, but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.

Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other—all while navigating the shadowy rules and shifting allegiances of the Faery Courts.

Melissa Marr is the author of the bestselling Wicked Lovely series as well as the adult fantasy novelsGraveminderandThe Arrivals. When not writing, editing, or traveling, Melissa is buried under a plethora of books, dogs, and children in Virginia or online at

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good i like this book for two reasons: seth and niall/irial. the hetero love stories honestly rather bore me and i don't like aislinn very much but those three characters are great. and the stories outside of the romance are really interesting and i like seth's quest to become immortal-i don't like that it's for aislinn but i like it in general. and sorcha is cool. and the bonus short story in this book is amazing because nirial. so 3.5/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing The Wicked Lovely Series is by far the best series I have ever read. I have told everyone I know about them and have let many of my friends borrow the series from me. If you haven't read them than you are missing out! The only bad thing I can say about the series is that it ended! I wish there were more!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kinda Getting Boring... I find this series tends to concentrate on the love more than the courts and I find that it's annoying me. I understand that they do mention the King/Queens courts and how they believe they should do what's best for it, but I never really see that happening. Plus, you never really get that experience of King/Queen to court relationship. It's always communication with the other leaders of the other courts. I also found that nothing superly important happened in this book and there was a lot of build up over nothing. The only thing that really happened in this book was the thing that happened with Seth, and that wasn't even all that exciting. There was also a lot of talk about war in the past two previous books, but I have yet to really see any of that happen and I hope that Bananach's hopes do come true just so that I can get some excitement from this series... :P If you ask me, just the first book "Wicked Lovely" is worth reading from this series so far, and you can do it without reading the rest of them since there isn't any real connection between the books plots. The characters are there, but I feel like the plots could all happen without need of the other books other than maybe the explination of Faery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seth is Back YAHOO! SETH, SETH SETH! Okay, I am done. I liked that Fragile Eternity explores Aislinn’s life as the queen of the Summer Court and her love triangle between Keenan and Seth (I’m voting for Seth, like you couldn’t tell). Aislinn’s time with Keenan did make me melt and I felt so guilty because I love Seth. But Keenan does know how to woo a girl. Aislinn’s time with Seth made me melt and a bit jealous because I obviously want Seth for myself. Seth’s friendship with Niall continues to grow and I’m not sure if it’s a good thing with his new status is does make the conflicts between the Summer/Winter/Dark Courts drama grow. I love how Melissa has made Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange link perfectly to Fragile Eternity she has pulled off what Holly Black did so wonderfully with the Modern Faerie Tales series.

Editorial Reviews

“This dark fantasy about survival and transformation is as mesmerizing as its urban faery subjects.”
