Wicked Lovely Desert Tales : Sanctuary by Melissa Marr

Wicked Lovely Desert Tales : Sanctuary by Melissa Marr
Published: Los Angeles : Tokyopop, 2009
Series: Volume One Wicked Lovely, Desert Tales

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. . . .

I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked the concept but at the same time I'm not sure that there was really much to the book.
I liked the drawings although I found it difficult to tell who was a guy and who was a girl. I only found out when they referred to the person in question.
Also there weren't many words even for a manga type book. So I found it hard to tell what was going on.
One redeeming factor was that it was about fairies and it also had a character I knew from the book Wicked Lovely.
Overall, I didn't love this one but I didn't hate it. I'm thinking it might've just been an introductory book to the rest of the series but I'm not entirely sure. I'll read the next one when it comes out and from there decide if I'll continue to read this series.
My Rating: φφ
