Return to the world of Melissa Marr's bestselling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion. . . . Originally presented as a manga series and now available for the first time as a stand-alone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny.The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that's exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert's isolation after decades of carrying winter's curse inside her body. But her seclusion—and the freedom of the desert fey—is threatened by the Summer King's newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself—and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is over.

Got a copy to review, but the Wicked Lovely series just seemed all over the place to me, so I don't think I'll be reading this one. But who knows?
"There were words he could say, wicked phrases and lovely reminders, but they would only hide the lie." (126)How did I have no idea this book existed? When I found out that Melissa Marr had written another book set in the Wicked Lovely world (based on the graphic novels), I can't tell you how excit...
