Return to the world of Melissa Marr's bestselling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion...Originally presented as a manga series and w available for the first time as a stand-alone vel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny. The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie 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-is 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.
