Return to the world of Melissa Marr's bestselling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion...? Originally presented as a manga series and now available for the first time as a stand-alone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny. The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts-and that's exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert's isolation after decades of carrying winter's curse inside her body. But her seclusion-and the freedom of the desert fey-is threatened by the Summer King's newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself-and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is over.

Professional reviews

"Fairies are known for having a trickster side, but narrator Nick Landrum makes them downright devilish with his sultry tones. Forget the iridescent wings and glitterÑthe fairies in this story mean serious business. Landrum gives heroine Rika a soft, soothing tone to match her reserved and shy nature, while her fox fairy friend and confidante, Sionnach, has a deep baritone that is as hot as the Mojave Desert, which he calls home. Landrum's portrayal of Jace, Rika's human love interest, contrasts beautifully with the character of SionnachÑthe bright tones of youth clashing with the fox fairy's sarcasm. The plot is a bit underdeveloped, but LandrumÕs vocal prowess and clear enunciation will warm ears and hearts. E.E. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
