Description: All teenagers have problems, but few of them can match those of Aislinn, who has the power to see faeries. Quite understandably, she wishes that she could share her friends' obliviousness and tries hard to avoid these invisible intruders. But one faery in particular refuses to leave her alone. Keenan the Summer King is convinced beyond all reasoning that Aislinn is the queen he has been seeking for nine centuries. What's a 21st-century girl to do when she's stalked by a suitor nobody else can see? A debut fantasy romance for the ages; superlative summer read.
Review: I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. All the characters are just fantastic. I love Aislinn. She is a down to earth girl that just wants to go to school and hang out with her friends. She just wants to have a simple life. Unfortunately it does not work out that way for her. She has lived with the ability to see faeries. Everyone in her family has this ability. Throughout the book we discover all the obstacles she has to overcome.
There is a love triangle between Aislinn, Keenan the Summer King, and her friend Seth. I absolutely love Seth. He is my ideal guy. He has tattoos and piercings all over, but he is a kind and understanding person. Seth is very affectionate with Aislinn that I just had to keep reading for him.
The only issue I had with the book is that is jumps back and forth between different perspectives throughout the book. The writing is fantastic and the story just flowed. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
