My pick this week:
Format: Paperback, 200 pages
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….
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—are 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.
Originally presented as a manga series, and now available for the first time as a standalone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny.
I'm so excited for this! I LOVED the Wicked Lovely series!!! I own the Desert Tales mangas and I've read the first two, but I'm still curious about how the story will change as it goes from one medium to another. And I'm just homesick for that world... already the cover design and font fit in so well with the other books!
What do you guys think of my pick? Have you read the Wicked Lovely books or the manga? And what are you highlighting this week?
