Summary

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 best-selling Wicked Lovely series will leave listeners breathless.

A satisfying conclusion to a superb series

I have loved every one of these books and was beginning to feel a little nervous about this one as it was the final instalment in an excellent series. I needn't have worried it was outstanding all the loose ends throughout the books were cleverly tidied up no one is left dangling and you feel thoroughly satisfied with the outcome. I just hope that Melissa Marr has plenty more left in her as I have become quite a fan. The narration for this series was spot on although I did enjoy the voices by the first narrator in Wicked Lovely probably the best.

Fantastic finale

This is the final instalment of an excellent series about the world of fairies that live alongside the mortal world. Darkest Mercy cleverly pulls all the threads of each of the four previous books together and satisfyingly concludes each one. I have enjoyed listening to the series and found it a lot darker than anticipated considering it is aimed for the young adult category. If you enjoy a good love story with dangerous consequences then I recommend considering the Wicked Lovely series.

If you are a fan of the series, maybe.....

I loved this series, or should i say i loved it up until i read this book. This was the final installment in the Wicked Lovely series. I could have done without purchasing this, it was definately mediocre when compared to the others in this series.(which i thought were fabulous!) and the ending? well, all i can comment on that is "what a disappointment!" I should have passed on this one.

The Gang’s All Here!

Pretty sure every character from the Wicked Lovely world is in this book.
It’s a roller coaster ride and chock-full of shout-at-loud shocking moments! I wish I read it sooner; just about every loose end from the entire series is wrapped up in this novel. Soooo good.

Wonderfully Read

I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series. The continuity of having the same narrator throughout the series was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend this series, and this narrator.

Loved it!

I already have the first four in paperback copies, and haven't been able to come across this book in store yet, so when I saw it was available on here, I jumped on it! I'm so glad that I could finally finish this series up and it was a wonderful book overall! It took a little adjustment from typically reading to the audio book, but this was entirely worth it!

great

I adore this story line and LOVE the Author.... I would most definitely recommend this series to anyone who likes gritty mythological characters that are seeded in the true legends of these creatures. . not the fluffy sparkle fairytale's of the present

Great series.

I wished there was more but I guess everything must come to an end. I hope to see this become a movie or tv series one day 😍. A big thanks to Melissa Marr for her great work! 👌💯
