Cold Iron Heart: A Wicked Lovely Novel Audiobook

Cold Iron Heart: A Wicked Lovely Novel

Author: Melissa Marr Narrator: Kristin James, Tim Paige Release Date: June 2020

How far would you go to escape fate? In this prequel to the internationally bestselling Wicked Lovely series, the Faery Courts collide a century before the mortals in Wicked Lovely are born. Thelma Foy, a jeweler with the Second Sight in iron-bedecked 1890s New Orleans, wasn't expecting to be caught in a faery conflict. Tam can see through the glamours faeries wear to hide themselves from mortals, but if her secret were revealed, the fey would steal her eyes, her life, or her freedom. So, Tam doesn't respond when they trail thorn-crusted fingertips through her hair at the French Market or when the Dark King sings along with her in the bayou. But when the Dark King, Irial, rescues her, Tam must confront everything she thought she knew about faeries, men, and love. Too soon, New Orleans is filling with faeries who are looking for her, and Irial is the only one who can keep her safe. Unbeknownst to Tam, she is the prize in a centuries-old fight between Summer Court and Winter Court. To protect her, Irial must risk a war he can't win-or surrender the first mortal woman he's loved.

So, when Ivy arrives and whisks him off to a magical land, Jack isn't sure whether to be terrified or grateful that someone thinks he's special. With the aid of the tiny faeries, a glaistig, and boy who can re-create the world almost as quickly as the queen breaks it, Ivy might save her home, her friends, and even her mother.

Now that she and Creed are more than just fellow Black Diamonds—operatives for the queen—her priorities have shifted. But her worries about assuming the throne are derailed when it becomes clear that someone—or some fae—is masterminding violent attacks to discourage peace.
