Book Review: Stopping Time by Melissa Marr

Title:  Stopping Time

Author:  Melissa Marr

Leslie walked away from the Dark Court, determined to reclaim her life and live it on her own terms-even if it meant leaving behind the two faeries who love her. She knows Niall and Irial watch over her, and she would give almost anything to keep them from hurting. But she resists the pull to be with either one of them.

Someone knows about Leslie’s past, however, and is intent on using her to reach the fey. And he doesn't care who gets hurt.


a.) Characters: 3/5 score.  Leslie has grown since we last seen her in Ink Exchange.  I think it’s cute how the faeries watch over her, but it would get annoying if she was trying to leave their world.  Leslie doesn’t seem to think much about that.

b.) Plot: 3/5 score.  I think this wasn’t needed, but it made me have more questions about Niall and Irial’s past relationship.  The whole time Leslie was being stalked, I knew who it was.  I mean, think about it.  It becomes pretty obvious.  

c.) Writing style: 3/5 score.  Simple.  It was only a 50 pages in the back of my Fragile Eternity copy (which is awesome!).  It was a short read, but we got to feel each character: Leslie, Niall, and Irial.  

Rating: 9/15 total

This kind of tied up loose ends for me but it also brought up a whole new set of questions!
