Book review: Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr

I want to start out by repeating my warning from my review of Ink Exchange:
If you haven't read Wicked Lovely [my review] or Ink Exchange[my review] yet don't start with this one(and don't read this review cause it will contain spoilers from the first two books)! This series has to be read in order to make sense to the reader.

First let's take a look at the book trailer:

First line:

Seth knew the moment Aislinn slipped into the house; the slight rise in temperature would've told him even if he hadn't seen the glimmer of sunlight in the middle of the night.

Product descripton cortesy of Amazon:
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.

My opinion:

This is the best book so far in the Wicked Lovely series. When I finished this book I wished I had number four in hand but of course it is not released yet and won't be either for awhile.
Fragile Eternity evolves much around Seth and what he is willing to sacrifice to be with Aislinn. A royal fairy could make him immortal but non of his friends in the fairy courts wants to help him. They know it's not easy being a fairy and having your mortality taken away from you. Seth is acting like a young boy in love and tries his best to figure out a way that he can have forever with Aislinn. He doesn't want to let Aislinn go for anything in the world, especially not to the summer king, Keenan, who is right by Aislinn's side all the time, waiting for Seth to disappear from her life.

One of the strongest dark fey, Bonanach, is thirsting for war among the fairy courts. Bonanach does what she can to ignite tension between the courts.
Does Seth have to let Aislinn go? Will there be a war? I guess you have to read the book to get these questions answered.

My rating of this book:

4 points out of 5 possible.
