Fragile Eternity  - Melissa Marr

tl;dr |✭✭✩✩✩| This book. Sigh. I decided to read it because it went back to Seth and Aislinn, and I so enjoyed their story in the first book. But I hated this book. I really didn't like it at all, and I so wanted to. 

Description Basically: Seth is learning his mortality is a real issue when it comes to dating the now- Faerie version of Aislinn. And he knows if he doesn't figure something out, he's going to lose out to Keenan. Since Aislinn is becoming more and more drawn to Keenan (re: wanting to jump his bones), Seth has decided its time to find a way to become Faerie himself. 

Sigh.  This book. 


That is how I felt about this entire book. I ended up skimming through the rest of the book. I loved Seth, ok. So I hoped that this one following him would be better. But it wasn't Aislinn was frustrating, naive, and dull. She lost any and all fight that she had in the first book. And sure, Seth is willing to do anything for her. But that means he has to go introduce us to some new characters... and that is the queen of all queens of Faery. I don't even remember her name, I couldn't stand her. 


So. We meet Queeny, and she is... weird. Ugh. I don't like her character. She ends up claiming to have a "motherly" relationship to Seth, but it comes off as WAY more creepy and with her description of familial, it makes it seem incestuous. Even though we know Seth isn't her son, the way she talks about him and then acts with him is just creepy and gross. Ugh. It honestly made me angry/sick/ready to give up the book. At this point, I'd all but given up on this series. This book, and Ink Exchange, had the same problem as the first book. The first 100 pages are so slow and dull and hard to get through, but I felt like this story didn't get any better after those first 100 pages. I would not recommend continuing this series to anyone, unless you actually liked this book. Unlike me.
