While Ink Exchange holds a very special place in my heart, it does seem possible that these books just get BETTER and BETTER. I loved Fragile Eternity with all of my heart, I am just one hundred percent pleased with the way that it played out, except for one thing...please give Donia some happiness!
By the way...big huge spoilers if you haven't read Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange.
Anyway, Fragile Eternity is the mainly Seth's story. Seth is Aislinn's mortal lover. Summer is getting closer and closer which means it's a time of passion for Aislinn and Keenan's court. And they are drawn together more than ever. But Keenan loves Donia and Aislinn loves Seth...whatever will they do?
Seth is still mortal and Aislinn struggles with both knowing they can't be forever and her increasing attraction to Keenan. Seth is also best friends with Niall, who is now King of the Dark Court and just so happens to hate Keenan. So we have all sorts of soap opera and drama and I love it.
Seth longs to be able to protect Aislinn...and the only way he thinks that will happen...and give them a chance at forever is if he becomes a faery.
At first I was a bit skeptical of how this was going to work and what was going to happen. One thing I enjoy about these books as that with each book we get deeper and deeper into the world of the faeries and stakes get raised higher and higher. It really is a fragile peace they have and the conclusion of this book...while in every way starting down the path for the next, simply could not have been more satisfying to me. I absolutely love that Marr was able to weave Seth into this story in a way that made him a significant character on his own apart from Aislinn and maybe even more important than her. I've probably spoiled too much already, but I love these books!!!!
And oh the romantic/sexual tension!! I seriously fell into this book and did not want to come out. It seems so rare these days to be transported completely away by a book and so I'm thankful when it happens!
Things You Might Want to Know: Well, yes, there is talk of sex though nothing too explicitly described, it's there! And a little violence. And maybe there was a little language though nothing too significant.
