Review: Sanctuary (Wicked Lovely: Desert Tales #1) by Melissa Marr


Sanctuary (Wicked Lovely: Desert Tales #1) by Melissa Marr

Paperback, 192 pages
Published May 1st 2009 by The Bowen Press

Discover Melissa Marr’s mesmerizing world of Faerie . . .

The desert is far away from the schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that’s how Rika likes it. Once a mortal and now a faery, Rika seeks isolation and revels in her ability to appear invisible to humans. Then, she meets him. Artistic and kind, Jayce is the last person Rika wants to hide from.

But change is coming, challenging Rika’s freedom and her new romance, as her past pursues her, even into the heart of the desert. . . . – Goodreads

My Opinion: This is a manga of the series and the art is well done in my opinion. It starts off with the main character, Rika, and she is a solitary fae that Keenan wants in his court. However, she doens’t want that because she used to be a Ice Princess, one of the girls that had the winter’s chill in her thanks to picking up the staff. The story is set in the desert.

Rika falls in love with a human and she tries to protect him. Its a short story that has two more volumes in the series, Challenge and Resolve.  This is what the story is basically.

Overall: 3 out of 5
