As noted in my post last week, the amazing Melissa Marr spoke at the Tattered Cover in Denver. She was there to promote the newest addition to the Wicked Lovely Series, titled Radiant Shadows.
Hunger for nourishment.Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.
Hunger for touch.
Hunger to belong.
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?
Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series.
Radiant Shadows is the fourth book in the Wicked Lovely series and it definitely doesn't disappoint. Melissa is a master at world-building and story-telling, and she makes it easy to suspend belief and reside in another world for awhile. NOTE: I planned to read the entire series on my annual book club getaway in the mountains this past weekend, but the hot tub didn't lend itself to keeping the books dry -- and I spent a lotta time in the hot tub! Since all the books are signed by Melissa, I wanted to keep them in great condition, so my goal for the week is to finish them before I send them out to the lucky winners.
One lucky winner will receive a SIGNED hardcopy of Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr. Contest begins Mon. May 3rd and closes Monday May 17th. One winner will also receive signed copies of the first 3 books in the series: Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange, and Fragile Eternity on my other blog, Funky Fruit Book Reviews. So be sure to enter there as well for a chance to win all 4!
Good luck and please check out another great book recommendation on Nisa's blog here.
