Book Review: Fragile Eternity

Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr is ranked at the bottom of the Wicked Lovely books, but it is still an amazing installment. I think that really says something about the series and Melissa as an author… when you can still love the one you like the least.

This book goes back to the Summer and Winter Courts and the protagonists from Wicked Lovely. Ash still loves Seth, but is drawn to Keenan. And then there’s Donia who has been in love with Keenan for a long time. The story grows more complex as new obstacles are thrown in the way.

The most exciting thing about this book, though, is the new court. The High Court. Not new as in newly formed, but new to the series. The High Court is run by Sorcha, one of the first faeries, and right now they live in Faerie. So not only do we get to meet new characters, but we get to see an entire new world.

I'm really enjoying re-reading this series! Don’t forget to check out this entire amazing series: Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity, Radiant Shadows, and Darkest Mercy. And while you’re at it be sure to read the manga trilogy and “Stopping Time” and “Old Habits”, short stories set in the Wicked Lovely world.
