Desert Tales: A Wicked Lovely Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Return to the world of Melissa Marr's best-selling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion....
The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the faery courts - and that's exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert's isolation after decades of carrying winter's curse inside her body. But her seclusion - and the freedom of the desert fey - are threatened by the Summer King's newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself - and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is over.
Originally presented as a manga series and now available for the first time as a stand-alone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny.

3 things bummed me out on this book. 1 - It was extremely short! 2 - kinda pricey for being so short! $8.06 for 275 pages?? 3 - The ending was kind of rushed.
But overall an excellent novella to add to the series. I would really love to see a few more come out as well. Are you reading this Melissa? (Or one of your helpers?) :-)
I do recommend this read. Even though this says it's a stand alone book, I truly believe that it's not. There are too many things that come up and characters that you will wonder about. Reasons for why things are the way they are and so on. These things can get you confused if you haven't read the other books in the series. However, I really don't think you'd mind doing that. Because, now I actually have to go back and re-read the whole series again. Why? Because this story brought back so many memories of what the series was like and reminded me of how much I loved it! So I am going to go back and get lost in Wicked Lovely "land" again. LOL Happy Reading whether you decide to read it as a Stand Alone or as part of the series!
The book in a nutshell: Sad girl sees boy. Sad girl stalks boy and falls in love. Boy is in trouble so sad girl saves him. Boy falls in love with sad girl. Sad girl magically saves the day from imagined threat that doesn't really exist based on anger and distrust. The end. Oh and sad girl is a fey (previous Winter Girl) and boy is a mortal. Queue the QQ!
