Review--Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr

The Summer King is missing; the Dark Court is bleeding; and a stranger walks the streets of Huntsdale, his presence signifying the deaths of powerful fey.

Aislinn tends to the Summer Court, searching for her absent king and yearning for Seth. Torn between his new queen and his old love, Keenan works from afar to strengthen his court against the coming war. Donia longs for fiery passion even as she coolly readies the Winter Court for battle. And Seth, sworn brother of the Dark King and heir to the High Queen, is about to make a mistake that could cost his life.

Love, despair, and betrayal ignite the Faery Courts, and in the final conflict, some will win . . . and some will lose

The thrilling conclusion to Melissa Marr's
New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless.

Melissa Marr's conclusion to the Wicked Lovey series, Darkest Mercy was quite a fast paced read. Had I started it earlier in the day yesterday, it would've been a one day read. As it was I finished early this morning.

I will admit to some confusion in the beginning. This series has just gone in so many directions with all the different characters, I'm always discombobulated at the beginning of each book. I have to get into the flow with the main characters of this book. But it was still a fascinating conclusion. A lot of the characters we've seen in the past books are there, for the most part, maybe not the Radiant Shadows characters, but everyone else is there.

The war is on and with any way there are casualties and sacrifices. The ending was truly epic in some any ending to a series is really. There were surprises almost at every turn from each character.

Overall I give this one 3.5/5 stars. A slightly lower score just because I was confused for a good part of the beginning trying to get caught back up with the right characters. But still a great ending to a great series!

  1. I enjoyed it. It was a fast read. I just don't like how Seth turned out. In the first book I loved him, then he kinda started acting different..
