Darkest Mercy (book review)
Written by Melissa Marr.
Darkest Mercy is the final book in the Wicked Lovely series (although I just saw Marr released an ebook in January 2011 called Old Habits that is set between Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity. hmmm....) Finally... FINALLY... we get back to Aislinn, Seth, Keenan and Donia.
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 everything.
The thrilling conclusion to Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless.
I could not put this book down. To the very last page I was wondering how it would all end. I think I read it in 2 days... even with the girls keeping me busy. I read every moment I could. I'm not really sure what I can say without ruining the book for anyone planning on reading. Melissa Marr definitely has a way of making me feel connected to her characters. She makes you believe in fairies and, somewhat, in happily ever after.
