faeries are cool (new vampires)

Carlsen have got me translating the third in Melissa Marr's bestselling urban fantasy quartet of Wicked Lovely novels, this one entitled Fragile Eternity. Read about the book here>> and visit Melissa's website here>>.

Tons of readers for this, I reckon. And one of the characters smokes. Faeries are cool.
