Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

I'm sort of still reading Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. This book is interesting, in the fact that I'm not yet all that invested in the main character, which is why I'm finding it quite hard to finish the book. I actually like the secondary characters, such as Donia and Seth and Nial and even the Winter Queen a great deal more. Hey, I never said I was nice. lol. If I had to choose favorites, the two who would tie probably would be Seth and Donia for different reasons that are similar.

Seth is this amazing character who is extremely patient and fiercely protective of Aislynn. He would do anything for her, but he will also not push her into anything that she doesn't want either. He's extremely loyal and faithful to her and would probably risk his life for hers or resign himself to whatever decision just had to be. And Donia, she is similar in a sense as far as her love and loyalty to Keenan goes. Her difference is that she's bound by her duties and she has no choice, but to make the decisions that she does or else face the consequences laid out by the Winter Queen.

Melissa Marr's writing style is wonderful and beautiful, in the way she pays a great deal of attention to detail and the beauty in the way her words flow. The imagery she creates with her words, is a world I wouldn't mind getting lost in for a little while until I find myself having to return to reality. I just wish that her main character would somehow connect with me, but perhaps this will be a book that will come to cherish later for the simple fact that I was able to acknowledge smaller character's with other roles to fill, other than relying on the main character.
