Return to the world of Melissa Marr's best-selling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion....
The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the faery 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 - are 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.
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.
What did you love best about Desert Tales?
I liked that it was a branch off of the Wicked Lovely series.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Desert Tales?
The fight scenes.
Have you listened to any of Nick Landrum’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, from other Wicked Lovely books. He did a good job. I do miss the first narrator though from book 1.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Ya and no. Yes, because it was good and I wanted to finish it so I could move on to a different book. And no because sometimes it was a little slow.
Any additional comments?
It was a good short story. I would wait to buy it when its on sale, for future buyers.
