Melissa Marr - Veszélyes ​játék
A ​tündérek kedvesek és bájosak? Épp ellenkezőleg: erősek, veszélyesek, s az emberek világában élnek. Hol láthatatlanok, hol pedig álcát öltenek, és nem sokan tudják, kik ők valójában. Ám a 17 éves Aislinn tudja: a tündérlátás képességével született, amely számára inkább teher, mint áldás. Mindig ott vannak körülötte, látja a kegyetlenségüket, de a nagyanyján kívül senkivel sem beszélhet róluk. A legjobb stratégia elkerülni őket… Egyes számú szabály: Soha ne hívd fel magadra a figyelmüket! Kettes számú szabály: Ne beszélj a láthatatlan tündérekkel! Hármas számú szabály: Ne bámuld a láthatatlan tündéreket! Már késő. A nyomába szegődtek. Egy halott lány és a farkasa, valamint egy félelmetes, ugyanakkor ellenállhatatlan vonzerőt sugárzó fiú, Keenan. Vajon mit akarnak tőle? Az eddig biztonságot nyújtó szabályok már nem működnek, s minden veszélybe kerül: Aislinn szabadsága, halandó élete, és a legjobb barátja, Seth, aki talán már több mint barát. Fokozatosan kibontakozik egy évezredes történet átokról, beteljesületlen szerelemről, gonosz erőkről és kitartásról. Talán nem tökéletes minden, de az lehet. Tündérintrika, halandó szerelem, egy ősi játék kegyetlen szabályai és a modern elvárások összecsapása - erről szól Melissa Marr 21. századi tündérmese-sorozatának első kötete.

The ​New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series delivers her first novel for adults, a story about the living, the dead, and a curse that binds them. Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the tender attention her grandmother, Maylene, bestowed upon the dead of Claysville, the town where Bek spent her adolescence. There wasn’t a funeral that Maylene didn’t attend, and at each Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual: three sips from a small silver flask followed by the words “Sleep well, and stay where I put you.” Now Maylene is dead and Bek must go back to the place—and the man—she left a decade ago. But what she soon discovers is that Maylene was murdered and that there was good reason for her odd traditions. It turns out that in placid Claysville, the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected. Beneath the town lies a shadowy, lawless land ruled by the enigmatic Charles, aka Mr. D—a place from which the dead will return if their graves are not properly minded. Only the Graveminder, a Barrow woman, and the current Undertaker, Byron, can set things to right once the dead begin to walk

Melissa Marr - Törékeny ​örökkévalóság
A ​tündérek világában, akárcsak az emberi lények birodalmában, a szerelem és a hatalom körül forog minden. Amikor Aislinnból, a tündérlátó halandóból Nyárkirálynő lesz, nem mennek fényesen a dolgok a négy tündérudvar körül. Beteljesületlen szerelem, sértett büszkeség, bosszúvágy – meg egy igazi bajkeverő, Bananach, a hollólány ármánykodása egyre jobban veszélybe sodorja a tündérvilág törékeny békességét. Boldogság nélkül ugyanis az örökkévalóság fabatkát sem ér. Márpedig Aislinn boldogtalan, mert szerelme, Seth halandó, és így mindketten tudják, hogy előbb-utóbb el kell búcsúzniuk egymástól. Sorcha, a Magas Udvar és az egész tündérbirodalom királynője boldogtalan, mert magányos. Niall, a Sötét Király boldogtalan, mert a vele történt tragikus események ellenére képtelen ellenállni a kísértésnek, hogy ártson másoknak. Pedig ott él közöttük minden boldogság és békesség kulcsfigurája. Egy halandó, aki szabad bejárással bír mindegyik tündérudvarba. Élvezi bizalmukat, hallgatnak a szavára. Befolyásos… és a védelmük alatt áll. Sorcha, a tündérbirodalom királynője gyengéd érzelmeket táplál iránta... A halandót Seth Morgannek hívják, ő Aislinn szerelme. Seth rájön, hogy nincs más megoldás: neki kell tündérré válnia ahhoz, hogy szerelmével együtt élhessenek az örökkévalóságban. Azt is tudja, hogy ez egy csapásra helyrebillentené az egyensúlyt a többi szenvedő életében is, hiszen Keenan és Donia újra egymásra találhatna, Seth ott állna Niall mellett, hogy visszatartsa a gonosz kísértésektől, és Sorcha sem lenne többé magányos. Elindul a Magas Udvarba, hogy alkut kössön a Tündérkirálynővel, és bebocsátást nyerjen az örökkévalóságba. Csakhogy az egyezségnek ára van. Amikor tündérként visszatér a Nyár birodalmába, Aislinn éppen megragadta Keenan csuklóját, és megborzongott: nem a hidegtől, hanem örömében, ahogy az elektromosság átcikázott a bőrén és a csontjain. Tagadhatatlanul szexuális töltetű élmény volt. A fiú keze a csupasz hasán nyugodott, és ez majdnem olyan erotikus volt számára, mint Sethtel. Nem lökte el magától a fiú kezét, nem engedte el a csuklóját. A bőre életre kelt a napfénytől. Keenan napfényétől. Felsóhajtott, amikor egy erősebb napsugár a fiú tenyeréből kiindulva a bőrébe hatolt. A szeme rebegve lecsukódott, ahogy végighullámzott rajta a vágy. Seth ráébred, hogy Aislinn és Keenan időközben vészesen közel került egymáshoz. Nem adja fel, harcolni akar a lányért, vissza akarja szerezni Aislinn szerelmét.
