Description from the book:
Discover Melissa Marr's mesmerizing world of Faerie . . .
The desert is far away from the schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that's how Rika likes it. Once a mortal and now a faery, Rika seeks isolation and revels in her ability to appear invisible to humans. Then, she meets him. Artistic and kind, Jayce is the last person Rika wants to hide from.
But change is coming, challenging Rika's freedom and her new romance, as her past pursues her, even into the heart of the desert. . . .
In-a-word(s): Desert Fae
So we see Keenan as a manga graphic image! Cool. I thought this book was a great way to portray the fae world. Per Wicked Lovely theme, it goes into a budding love relationship between human and fairy all set in a desert environment. It's volume 1 of a series so we're left with a cliffhanger. However, I loved the images and the storyline so far. Looking forward to volume 2.
