One of my favorite series is the Wicked Lovely Series by Melissa Marr. And In honor of The Release Radiant Shadows This Tuesday I am going to tell my Wicked LOvely Journey.
I, like alot of people, was lost for books after the release of the last Harry Potter book. I had books that I wanted to read but, I wanted another Series that I could be excited about. Around that time I was really into Snow White ( Not the disney version more along the lines of Snow White a Tale of Terror (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qz1qRGxgCws)
I was looking through barnes and nobles, and yes you guessed it I picked up Twilight. It was 2005 and the hype was pretty low key at the time, a few websites but nothing to crazy. I read the next to books and then the flood gates opened. The fourth book was being released, a movie was coming and I was caught up in the hype of it all. But I kept seeing this book : Wicked Lovely, I would read the back of the cover and then just set it back on the shelves.
I became an Anti Twilighter after the release of BD and the movie, and joined a site for people who didn't like twilight as well. I came across a post about the books Wicked Lovely and heard what an author had said about the series (it wasn't good). So what did I do?
I bought Wicked Lovely.
The next day I ran out to buy Ink Exchange and then had to wait 6 agonizing months for Fragile Eternity to come out.
It was only after I had read all three books that I found out about the Rath, I know alittle late, but I joined none the less. And I am better for it. I have meet some of the coolest people on their, like Heather, Aine, Alice, Cam, Tiger, Teagan, Em, and so many more.
And I have never meet an Author kinder than Melissa Marr. She's like a ninja coming in and helping us with our questions about the books and Teasing us with hints for upcoming Releases. Small snippets of her work and even deleted scenes.
I was lucky enough to recieve an Arc of Radiant Shadows, and all I have to say for now: Is WOW be ready for a Wild Ride.
