    Great ending to this series!!

    DARKEST MERCY, by Melissa Marr, is the final book in the Wicked Lovely series. The previous books lead up to a action-filled, suspenseful, and romantic ending to the series.

    No character was safe in this book. The faeries that I got to know and love throughout the series were tested to their limits against the prospect of a fight against War. I liked the multiple POV structure of this book. Marr weaved her characters in and out of each other's lives to create an amazing web of intrigue and suspense. The pressure of the Courts to be strong overwhelmed the reagents, and I was curious to see how far they would all go to protect their fey.

    The love quadrangle between Ash, Keenan, Seth, and Donia supplied some heavy sexual tension. Marr definitely tortured her characters through their decisions, and in turn I, as the reader, was tortured! Some incredible events transpired just between these characters but it was astonishing and such a perfect path laid for these characters which I never saw coming.

    My only disappointment was the ending of this series. I will always pick up a book that Marr writes and these books will stay in my library for a long time. It is sad to see the end but I am very pleased with the result.

    A cover note: How GORGEOUS is the cover? The Wicked Lovely Series has always been know for its great covers but I think this one blows them all away. That flower and the colors make this book one to pick up even if you have not read the series. Major props to the art department on this one

    Just tap..

    No one dies what are you all spazzing about? Keenan made a bad choice and sure "true love conquers all" but i dont like the choices. I would have ended it differently than what she did but hey, thats just me.. i dont like seth and i think aislinn should have gone the other way in love. Aislinn is one of those, wait.... no one loves me? Ill turn around to one or the other of these boys i cant seem to stop hurting!! Ugh. Dissapointed in this series wish i never read them and spent so much money.

    I Also Recommend:

    A wicked great ending to a Wicked Lovely Story

    When originally starting this recommended series, I liked the 1st book, the other books seemed to stray from the main characters, but then figured out that Marr was trying to create a picture of an entire world so each book focused on different parts of each court. My ratings were 3-3.5*. Each book was emotional and you could realy feel all the characters were experiencing. But, I wasn't sure I wanted to continue with another series - not that it was bad, but because I wasn't sure where she was going with the story. the series was enough to keep my attention. I decided to stick with it and was pleasantly surprised. The 5th book promised to tie everything together - my stars have gone to 4, it did tie everything together, there was no extra garbage that was unnecessary, to the point to the facts of each matter, on to what needs to happen and I now rate the overall series with the final story would be 4 stars. The final book really delivers.

    Mixed Feelings

    At first it was kinda slow because of people grieving about their loses. I loved the surprises and sacrifices though. Anyone who wants to read this book should read all the books in order first so you can better appreciate every character.
