Wicked Lovely is a great summer read. My Goth daughter loved it and so did I. It has a fine message and some well-crafted and edgy characters, along with a nice blend of folklore that takes you beyond Disney and Froud into the world of Faeries and cold iron. I'm looking forward to the next one by Ms Marr!

Wicked Lovely is a stunning compisition of elegantly gothic language and a killer plot. Strong and real characters flesh it out, and turn a fantasy novel into an uplifting and empowering literary epic. I have read few books that I would rank above Wicked Lovely. It is a great read for any teen girl who is looking for engouragement as she struggles through life. It's a reminder that at the end of the day, we need to go with what feels right. Great plot, Great ending, Great message, Great book!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "First-time novelist Marr gives the oft-tried modern faerie story a fresh infusion of glamour, thanks to a likable pair of protagonists, a page-turning plot and an ample dose of sexual tension. Seventeen-year-old Aislinn has a secret; she sees fairies everywhere — working their mischief and doggedly following her for reasons she does not understand. Even when she looked away, she heard them: laughing and squealing, gnashing teeth and beating wings.... They were out in droves now, freer somehow as evening fell, invading her space, ending any chance of the peace she'd sought. One of them, the handsome Keenan, takes a particular interest in her. He is the Summer King, on a centuries-long quest for his queen, the one person who will be able to help him unseat his vicious mother, Beira, the Winter Queen. Keenan has chosen incorrectly over the years; the latest to accept his offer is Donia, who now lives in Beira's icy thrall. Beira offers Donia a deal: prevent Keenan from finding his proper queen, and Beira will release her spell over her soul. Aislinn confides her secret to her friend Seth, whose steel-walled home (an abandoned train) protects her from the fey. As Keenan pursues Aislinn, convinced she is his true mate, secrets emerge about Aislinn's family history and she wrestles with the decision to become the Summer Queen. Aislinn and Seth are a smart and compelling couple who must make tough choices throughout. Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into. Ages 12-up. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

"Review" by , "The romantic scenes are delicious. The fantasy of being pursued by two young men is alluring in itself, but when one is a pierced and tattooed sexy outsider and the other is a blindingly beautiful King of Faery, how much better can it get? Halfway through the book, I knew which characters I wanted to end up together, and that made me read greedily on. Readers will beg for a sequel."
"Synopsis" by , In a world unseen by mortals, the forces of Summer and Winter are at war. Two Faery Courts have been seeking the Summer Queen for more than nine centuries — one to restore the power of Summer and the other to banish it in this gritty modern Faery tale.
"Synopsis" by ,
A magical romance between a boy cursed with invisibility and the one girl who can see him, by New York Times bestselling authors Andrea Cremer and David Levithan.

Stephen is used to invisibility. He was born that way. Invisible. Cursed.

Elizabeth sometimes wishes for invisibility. When youre invisible, no one can hurt you. So when her mother decides to move the family to New York City, Elizabeth is thrilled. Its easy to blend in there.

 

Then Stephen and Elizabeth meet. To Stephens amazement, she can see him. And to Elizabeths amazement, she wants him to be able to see her—all of her. But as the two become closer, an invisible world gets in their way—a world of grudges and misfortunes, spells and curses. And once theyre thrust into this world, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how deep theyre going to go—because the answer could mean the difference between love and death.

 

From the critically acclaimed and bestselling authors Andrea Cremer, who wrote the Nightshade series, and David Levithan, who wrote Every Day and co-wrote Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohen and Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green, as well as many other novels, comes a remarkable story about the unseen elements of attraction, the mortal risks of making yourself known, and the invisible desires that live within us all.

Praise for INVISIBILITY

* " Levithan and Cremer again prove themselves masters of their craft. The inventive, enrapturing story that follows involves spellseekers and a curse-casting grandfather, but Stephens and Elizabeths journey is largely about redemption, self-acceptance, and love. Cremer and Levithan make Stephens invisibility something every reader can relate to, and therein lies the magic." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A must-read for both the realist and the romantic!" --Teen Vogue

"This dynamic duo has crafted a magical NYC love story that brings everything wonderful from their previous books into a novel that packs the adventure and plot twists of the Curse Workers series with a story that celebrates the joy of being honest and truly VISIBLE to another person."  --Justine Magazine

"[An] enigmatic mash-up of fantasy and romance set in contemporary real-world Manhattan. The collaboration of Levithan and Cremer creates a seamless narrative." --Booklist

“An interesting tale with plenty to offer, thought-provoking and entertaining all in one. “—TOR.com

“I hear David Levithan—his soulfulness, his tenderness, his yearning, his love—when I read this book. I hear Andrea Cremer—her careful and credible world building, her necessary specificity, her other-worldly imagination.  It's a potent combination in a story about a Manhattan boy whom no one in the world can see.” --Beth Kephart, author of Small Damages

“Once in a while, along comes a book like this one, written by two great authors, with a fun premise and nice execution, and I don't feel like I need to cover my enjoyment of it with a cough and a sheepish grin. So thanks for that, Andrea Cremer and David Levithan!” --ForeverYA

Invisibility is a novel that is both beautifully romantic and magical while hosting a storyline that is wickely dark and frightening.” --Tales of the Ravenous Reader

“Invisibility is a fascinating and unusual take on a modern love story with a whimsical, timeless romance vibe.” --The Compulsive Reader

"The characters are also so effortlessly likable." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Cremer and Levithan craft a tale of love and magic in their first collaborative effort." --School Library Journal

"A fast-paced supernatural thriller that will surely leave readers wanting more.[A] love child of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Levithans Every Day." --Kirkus Reviews

"Synopsis" by ,
 
Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didnt show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

Could she leave Jeb and her parents behind again, for the sake of a man she knows has manipulated her before? Will her mother and Jeb trust her to do whats right? Readers will swoon over the satisfying return to Howards bold, sensual reimagining of Carrolls classic.

Praise for Unhinged

"I really enjoyed the first book of this series, but Unhinged cranks the Wonderland experience up to 11. It's just ... WOW! The last few scenes dangle Alyssa's next adventure with shockers enough that I found my jaw needing a bit of assistance in coming off the floor. Write quickly, A.G. Howard! I need that next book!"

--USA Today

"Howard excels in sensory and sensuous descriptions."

--Kirkus Reviews 

"As intense, dark, and weird as the first volume, this worthy sequel creates a parallel narrative that brings the action out of Wonderland and into Alyssas hometown."

--The Bulletin of The Center for Childrens Books

"A dark beauty fills the novel's pages, which will mesmerize teens with a taste for magic, romance or suspense. Unhinged lays the groundwork for a third book where anything could happen--it is Wonderland, after all."

--Shelf Awareness
