Editorial Reviews

Aislinn is the new faerie Summer Queen, but she loves the mortal human Seth. Since all of faerie is on the brink of a cataclysmic war, the Summer Queen's infatuation is distracting her and endangering her subjects, not to mention the entire world. Narrator Nick Landrum uses a gentle, whispery voice, and he reads at a leisurely yet deliberate pace. His delivery suits the story, which does not have much action; instead, characters spend a great deal of time intensely conversing. Landrum's lack of vocal variation makes it occasionally difficult to tell which character is speaking. But if listeners enjoy the romance and intrigue, they'll gladly do what it takes to sort out the characters.

Publisher's Summary

Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone - but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her - but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.
Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

Could have been so much better

I personally loved the book Wicked Lovely, and I didn't hate Ink Exchange(though it was rather slow). I bought Fragile Eternity expecting the return of Aslinn to be entertaining, or at least a book that would bring the series forward. All I read was the constant complaining Aslinn who cries for months and a Seth who is weak and tempermental and who seems so uncaring while in Farier, even once he learned the difference in time he still expected her to understand without asking anyone to ask her to just wait for him and he will explain when his time is done..but no..he says nothing, even knowing she has to be hurting. Unfortunately it doesn't even keep the series going, except creating more problems and burning more bridges. Every moment with the high queen who becomes a mother made me feel like the book couldn't end fast enough, they drove me crazy, Seth just seemed to change so much of who he was/is.

reader is slow, monotonous- or maybe its the book?

I have listened to the first 2 books in the series mostly enjoying both of them. The narrators could have both been better, but the plot kept me listening to them. I liked the reader much better when he read the last book.

That leads me to believe it is merely the book that is bad. I have had it in my library for the last 2 months and have only been able to stand about half of it. Every time I start it up again I think "Oh yeah, now I remember why I turned this off!"

Halfway through the book it still appears to be going in no particular direction, it is slow, and they keep revisiting characters I have had no interest in learning more about from the first 2 books.

I had to write a review for this to spare others the regret. Even if you enjoyed the first two books like I did you will probably find this one a lost cause.

Another good installment...

A warning for those of you hot-footing it to this after Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange - yes the story progresses but this leaves you pretty high and dry with nothing really resolved. Even though I knew I was almost at the end I was really surprised when it stopped - I couldn't believe Ms Marr had left me quite so bereft of resolution - it's all still to come. That said, if (as a non-teen listener) you can overcome your desire to shake Aislinn and tell her to get a bit of backbone, this is a fun listen. It's certainly not all sweetness and light, and Aislinn is let down by all and sundry, poor soul, if I'd been her I'd have said sod it and left - but then there'd be no story!
I shall certainly keep on with the series.

Good but not as good as the previous book

Although I enjoyed this book I felt it wasn't as exciting as the previous two. I felt the story took a long while to develop and then as soon as the excitement kicked off the book ended. A little disappointing but I enjoyed it none the less and will probably continue with the series
