From the Back Cover
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.

Darkest Mercy is the final book in the Wicked lovely series. These books have kept me entertained and drawn into the lives of those inhabiting the Faery courts for a long time. It's always sad to see a series as captivating as this end, and Melissa Marr has done a fantastic job in tying up most of the threads of the characters. The epilogue, in particular was a great finish, bringing the story full circle.
My only criticism or, in fact suggestion is that some of the ideas seemed a little rushed, and this book may have benefited greatly by coming out 6 months or so later, after some more intensive editing and thought processes. I found that the story involving the Winter court had a great build up - being the strongest court with deep natures and angers etc, but in the final battle, these powers and fury were never actually realised.
Likewise with Keenan's deal with the water fey - something which covered multiple chapters in the beginning of the book - was not a major part of the battle in the end, and the bargain he struck was not spoken of again.
There are many great points about the book however, not the least of which is the resolution of the Dark court story. Irial, ah Irial, my favourite by far of the court Fey - he carries an enduring appeal, and commands a large chunk of attention.
All in all, a good read, and a satisfying conclusion to the series.
