The world of Melissa Mar's New York Times bestselling dark fantasy series Wicked Lovely comes to manga! This three-volume series focuses on Rika, a minor character in Wicked Lovely: formerly a mortal, formerly a Winter Girl, and formerly loved by the Summer King.

The dry, near-empty desert is a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that’s exactly why Rika likes it. Once mortal herself, now she seeks out isolation, and she revels in her faery ability to become invisible to human eyes. Until she meets him. Jayce is a mortal blessed with artistic ability and kindness, and he is the last person Rika wants to hide from.

But change is sweeping the faery world, challenging Rika’s freedom and even her tentative romance with Jayce. And the politics Rika has fled from pursue her, even into the heart of the desert. . . .

Praise For…

PRAISE FOR WICKED LOVELY: “A fully imagined faery world which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into.”

PRAISE FOR INK EXCHANGE: “Another highly addictive read…Compulsive enough to give the Twilight series a run for its money, and dizzyingly more sinister.”
