The second installment in Melissa Marr's #1 New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series brings readers back to the land of faerie and delivers another stunning, high-stakes romance. Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow. Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her own life. The tattoo does bring changes-not the kind Leslie has dreamed of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic. Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its allures, and helpless to withstand its perils...

"This dark fantasy has a sinister feel that younger listeners may find scary. After being abandoned by her mother, Leslie, the teenage protagonist, must run the family household while coping with an alcoholic father and a delinquent, drug-addicted brother. Wanting to assert herself, Leslie decides to get a tattoo, an act that brings about her journey into the shadowy faerie realm of the Dark Court and her involvement in a dangerous love triangle. Nick Landrum's measured, controlled, occasionally breathy delivery intensifies the story's feeling of impending doom. Listeners will feel like they're getting sucked into an underworld with little chance of escape. The story and Landrum's performance should appeal to listeners who prefer intense, edgy fantasy.
