    This book was a bit difficult to rate. I didn't know whether I wanted to give it a three or a four. A three because I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the second volume... but I did enjoy it and didn't find too many faults in this volume so I just went with a four. Plus, I have been somewhat of a fan of the novels so... I guess I can just say this. If you aren't a huge fan of the series, then I would rate this a three. If you are, a four. Alright onwards! I can't believe it's over. I was actually This book was a bit difficult to rate. I didn't know whether I wanted to give it a three or a four.

Plus, I have been somewhat of a fan of the novels so... I guess I can just say this. If you aren't a huge fan of the series, then I would rate this a three. If you are, a four. Alright onwards! I can't believe it's over. I was actually enjoying myself whilst reading these. They were so much fun! It's short, cute, a little on the annoying side, but entertaining overall. You don't have to read all the books to understand what is going on. However, you will have to read at least the first two to three books in order to understand what is going on in the plot because it can get very confusing very fast if you don't. Then again, if you're reading the third volume of this manga then you probably know that already. XD I think the third volume, though not as amazing as the second, was still a very good read and a great way to bring the trilogy to a close. All loose ends were tied up and some of the big issues I had in the previous books were solved in this one. In fact, I don't have too many complaints about this one. One or two things about Rika but that's to be expected. She a female lead in a YA based manga so, naturally, she's going to be a little stupid. But more on that later. I'm just really glad I chose to pick this manga series up. Melissa Marr has made me very happy. Her work can be hit or miss with me so I can never be too sure if I am going to like what she is going to throw my way. With this manga series, however, I was quite happy with the results. She created a storyline unique to the world she created and it worked. In this volume, she managed to solve all the questions you had with the last two in an orderly manner. The only thing about this volume that made it a bit slow for me was the fact that there was hardly any action. A lot of the action came towards the end of the book. It was okay but I would have liked a bit more of punch in the last novel. Another that irked me the wrong way was the mush scenes. Too many for my liking. I just... vomit every time Jayce and Rika were together. To me, it was romantic. More nauseating than anything else. Still, it wasn't too bad and I was able to pull through towards the middle. Besides those two things, the story was great. I really liked it. I'm not saying too much about the plot because I am always too afraid that I might give too much away. Just trust me when I say that Marr did a pretty good job with this. It was a lot of fun to read through. Xian Nu Studio did it again! The art work~ So pretty~ I've said how much I love the art in previous reviews so I won't go on and on about it again. I'll keep it brief. I love their style. They know how to capture the characters emotions well and they just know how to move scenes along even if there's no dialogue being said. One panel really stood out to me in this volume and that was the one where Summer and Winter collided. It was beautiful and I was left in awe! It's such a great drawing style and I would so read more works drawn by them in the future. It's time to talk about the characters! I will have to say that I do not like Rika one bit. I think she's selfish and shallow... BUT! I do think she improved a little in this volume. Key word: little. She's still selfish and shallow but at least she wasn't boy hopping like she was in the last volume. Here. She was mad at Sion for most of the manga because of what he did in the last volume (if you read it, you know what I mean) but I found that to be stupid. The reason he did what he did was because he cared for her. He saw her as family and wanted her happiness. If she can't see that then she's stupid, which she is. *Rolls eyes* Whatever. She's not the best main character. Jayce is still dull. He's nice to her but he does nothing but support her the entire way through. TAKE SOME ACTION YOU NINNY! And there was a scene her that really got under my skin. When Rika told him to not go with her because it's dangerous, he says how he wants to be with her but for her not to worry because he has his own life.. he just wanted her in it. It just sounded really arrogant to me. I would have been pissed if someone said that to me. Then again, I have a short temper. XP In any case, he was boring. Maili was epic as always~ And sexy~ And badass~ She's the bad guy but I still love her! XD Keenan was still a douche. Donia was beautiful! I love her~ It was nice seeing them interact in the manga and to see some flashbacks to the first novel! ^_^ They were pretty to look at. My absolute favorite character, Sionnach, was awesome~ As if that would change! I won't rant to you about how awesome I think he is (I did that in my last review) but I really do love how caring he is. I love how he developed his relationship with Rika into that of a brother/sister one. It was cute. He introduced his girlfriend, Carissa, and I first I thought she was going to be a pathetic girl... but she turned out to be pretty cool. Very understanding. We don't see a lot of her... but I feel she would be a great match for my love~ Ah~ Sion~ How I wish you were here so I can just do yums with you~ <3333 Anyway, if you love Wicked Lovely, pick up this manga series. I feel like it would right right up your alley! It's so much fun and entertaining that you won't even feel like you spent time reading it. It goes by so quickly. I know I really enjoyed it and I usually have a hard time reading Melissa Marr's stuff. The plot was good, the characters had life to them (minus Jayce), and the art is amazing! At the very least, check it out of your library. If you read the novels, you should at least read these once through. I know after reading all three volumes of the manga, I will be adding it to my collection. ^_^ Anyway, that's it for today! I shall return tomorrow with another manga/graphic novel to review... because I am still very much addicted to them! XD

    I honestly have no idea what to say. It wasn't awful? But it wasn't engaging either; this elicited zero emotional response from me. :l Well the Wicked Lovely series has always been hit or miss for me, I wasn't into all of the books either. I guess I'll just slot the manga into the miss category. 2 stars

    I pretty much just binge read this manga trilogy. It was good but I can tell that it is missing important stuff from the original novel series. Some events seem incomplete. I *might* even consider reading the full YA series after these.

    Thank God for Melissa Marr, seriously. In an ocean full of been there-done that - or, as our friend Gwen would say, "Same Shit, Different Author" - Marr's stories have formed an oasis of sorts for us. They're beautiful, tragic, unique, and captivating - Wicked Lovely is one of the best contemporary series out there, not to mention one of our favorites. Which is why we were so very EXCITE to find out that Marr had done a Wicked Lovely manga. Well, that and because manga is AWESOME. The best part is Thank God for Melissa Marr, seriously.

The best part is that, where a lot of other YA authors have had their stores adapted into graphic novel format, Marr has gone the extra mile here and penned a whole new tale set in the Wicked Lovely universe for her manga. So not only do we get to see some of our favorite characters in action, but we don't have to read the same story over again to do so. We get some new mythology, new characters, and new developments, in addition to a gorgeous rendition of the world we've come to enjoy so much. Read more at You're Killing.Us

    I liked seeing Keenan again, and maybe? (kind of?) getting a peek at his trips to desert.

Again, character development and strong female characters are what make this book really enjoyable. I have also learned that the manga style of drawing (if there is such a thing, maybe it's just this artist. Someone clear this up for me?) is not meant for me. And yes, I'm going to read the novelization.

    Yup it's official. Of the new characters in this short series, Sionnach is my fave. He's cunning and will do whatever it takes to keep his people safe. Almost sounds like Keenan, except that he's never willing to be anything other than what he is: a fox faery who is equally loyal and deceitful. He reminds me quite of bit of Irial, actually. Also, Donia gives Rika a huge compliment: You would've made a lovely queen. (sighs. I love Donia.) These are a quick read & I'm glad I got them from the l Yup it's official.

    i wasn't really sure what to expect, so i think i was slightly disappointed with the way things ended. it makes sense, but i think i wanted more action, tension, suspense. it all just seemed a little too easy. as in the first two, i enjoyed seeing the depictions of donia and keenan as well as the rest of the fairy world. i'm still a big fan of rika, although jayce still hangs too much in the background for me. i also find myself liking shy more and more as i learn more about him and what makes hi i wasn't really sure what to expect, so i think i was slightly disappointed with the way things ended. it makes sense, but i think i wanted more action, tension, suspense. it all just seemed a little too easy. as in the first two, i enjoyed seeing the depictions of donia and keenan as well as the rest of the fairy world. i'm still a big fan of rika, although jayce still hangs too much in the background for me. i also find myself liking shy more and more as i learn more about him and what makes him tick; i don't think i really understood him previously. i'm sad to see the end of this manga series - what can i say, i love this world and want more.

    In this last volume, Maili is still trying to get to the alpha position and the desert faeries are getting restless. In order to get rid of the Summer King and Maili alike, Rika decides to offer her fealty to the Winter Queen. I wished there were consequences to getting the Winter Queen's help. As it is now, she's like a deus ex machina, getting rid of all of our problems too easily. Faeries are supposed to be untrustworthy, right?

I liked the Desert tales - for solitary faeries - like a separate mini-series on the side :) i liked when Shy/Sionnach freaked when Rika told him she swore faelty and he thought it was to Keenan, who they hated, but it was actually Donia - and they finally got Maili banished from the desert since Rika and Shy were the alphas :) and Rika and Jayce finally met Shy's girlfriend at the end, Carissa! :D shy <3 carissa rika <3 jayce

    They gave alot of information in a short ammount of space. Though I liked how it was done and characters were easier to follow things just don't line up. If keenen was gone for months where was he? Traveling ever where ok.... but how is he then back to don so fast when Tina shows up. I just think it was a whole story in a short ammount of space.

    Great conclusion to this mini-series! I'm in love with the artwork ^^ I'm so excited this is being adapted into an entire novel (or at least one based on it)! Re-reading vol.2 and then this one made me realize how much I miss Melissa Marr's fairies and their world :(

    This is the third book in the Desert Tales graphic novels by Melissa Marr. I had to admit that this was my least favourite of the three. I still love the illustrations, but this instalment of the story wasn't as engaging as the others. I would still recommend this trilogy to graphic novel fans.

    Awesome ending to a cute story and great way to segway into the the last book. The art again is fantastic and I feel I get a look at how Donia and Keenan really look in the books. This is a great tribute to the series and anyone who love the series should check it out.
