Description: Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone—but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her—but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.
"I was thinking it was worth the risk if it meant forever with my faery girlfriend."
"Then he kissed her, not just a brush of lips as she'd done, but a kiss a kiss that scalded her tongue. The tree burst into full blooms. The garden fluttered around her. A riot of flowers shot out of the earth. She was mud-covered as he pulled back."
"Were you hoping for a quest? A seemingly impossible task that you could relay to your queen afterward? Would you like to tell her that you found and slayed the dragon for love of her?"
My Musings: I was really happy to continue Seth's journey in this book. In the last book, Ink Exchange, we took a break from the Aislinn-Seth-Keenan triangle mess, but in Fragile Eternity we get right back into it.
This book was a great read, but Aislinn really made me upset in this book. I don't think she fully grasped the struggle that Seth is going through with him being a mortal and Aislinn an immortal. I just wish she would just punch out Keenan and find a way to keep Seth forever as an immortal.
Keenan is the worst character in this series. I just can't get into his smug personality and his deceitful ways. I am tired of him trying to break up Aislinn and Seth so that he can have her all to his self. I have no pity for him, especially after the things he did to Niall in Ink Exchange.
I will have to say that they ending wasn't that surprising, but the way it happened still boggles my mind. I curious how this will all play out in the next two installments of the series.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and I loooooooovvvvvveeeee SETH!!! He is what keeps me going in the series (as well as Niall).
Book Art: I really love the color scheme on this book: frosty blue, pink, purple, etc. Another perfect cover added to the series.
