Praise for ‘Wicked Lovely’:
“Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into.” Publisher’s Weekly
“The fantasy of being pursued by two young men is alluring in itself, but when one is a pierced and tattooed sexy outsider and the other is a blindingly beautiful King of Faery, how much better can it get? Readers will beg for a sequel.” Washington Post
"This is a magical novel… the first book in a trilogy that will guarantee to have you itching for the next instalment. * * * *" Bliss
Melissa Marr was voted in high school the “most likely to end up in jail”. Instead, she went to graduate school, worked in a bar, became a teacher and did a lot of writing. Her novels Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity and Radiant Shadows are published by HarperCollins.

I have made no secret that the Wicked Lovely Series has been my favorite of all time. Wicked Lovely is my number one favorite book. It was the first novel I had ever read where the faeires were dark and mean and twisted and I loved it! No other book I've read has come close to capturing their world the way she has created it. That being said, there were some books in the series I liked better than others.
Wicked Lovely was my favorite, but it might be replaced by Darkest Mercy. This was a beautiful story that wove all the threads left behind from all the other books and tied the knot. Old characters came back, some new characters were added and the old battle with War final came to a showdown. The twists and turns while you saw them coming had twists and turns you could never see coming because you didn't know they could happen. But this is a faery tale and all things are possible. Even Keenan returning. (Grrr)! But he is a little more likable in this story. Seth is there in a predicament of his own. And Aislinn trying to keep things together.
The final showdown is so chaotic that I had to keep rereading to make sure I knew what was going on. Who was where and what had happened if anything to my beloved characters. The aftermath is bittersweet and surprising. This is where the stranger especially comes in to play. And that's it. It's all I'm going to say because I'm not going to ruin the story for anyone. It's amazing and very complete and must have been very difficult for Melissa to write. But she did such a great job and I am so happy that I didn't have to wait for my preordered copy to come. I will reread it because I got it yesterday and read it in one night. No way was I going to bed without knowing the ending. And the final pages were a huge surprise and so befitting who they were about I almost laughed except they were done out of love. I will say there is a lot more romance in this final book, but there would have to be because of the conflicts between Seth, Ash, Keenan and Donia. But it's not detailed, just very fitting.
I am such a huge fan of Melissa Marr's work. I know Graveminder comes out in June and I believe she has another trilogy she's writing totally unrelated to this series. I'd love to have her creativity and imagination. But, instead, I will settle for reading the worlds and characters she creates and the stories she weaves so magically. If you like faeries and haven't read this series, what are you waiting for? I think it sets the standard by which I measure all other stories about faeries. Oh, and the cover is much better when you see it in person!
I read an ARC of Darkest Mercy in January that was on a tour thanks to Melissa Marr getting extra copies. My review is based on the ARC.
I really hated Keenan through the whole series. This book, I actually liked him. He finally made the right choices. He finally stopped manipulating and lying Ash. He had obstacles to face, and I even cried at some of the stuff that happened to him, but he finally chose love. Ash grew stronger and stronger throughout the series. I really liked her as a character. Seth is perfect for her. I also liked Donia. These two are fierce queens. I'm glad most of them got their happily ever after!!!!
This is a great series!!! It is both light and dark. The characters are well thought out, and you grow to love them. I recommend to all!!!!!
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.
