After not getting much more of Seth and Aislinn's story (started in Wicked Lovely) from Ink Exchange, I was most anxious to find out what happens. I really enjoy Melissa Marr's work! She takes Fragile Eternity in a direction I did not expect. I love when an author does that. When I first finished the book, I was not happy with the ending; however, upon further reflection, I came to terms with it. With most authors tying up their endings very neatly, there's something to be said for an author with the chutzpah to leave an ending open to interpretation. That's exactly what Marr does here, and it works. Fragile Eternity is a must-read for YA fans and fans of faery tales.
Just One Gripe:
It took me a while to respect the ending.
The Best Thing About This Book:
I love both Seth and Aislinn. They are such strong, well-developed characters.
Appropriate for a younger audience:
