Publisher's 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.

    "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.

    "I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH!"

    THIS WAS SUCH A TREAT TO BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD LIKE THIS! I AM SUCH A FAN OF THIS AUTHOR AND THIS SERIES AND WAS SO DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE LOST MOST OF MY VISION IN A CAR ACCIDENT THIS YEAR JUST AFTER BUYING THIS BOOK IN THE STORE AND TO HAVE FOUND IT ON AUDIBLE AND GET TO FINISH IT WAS INCREDIBLE! I CRAVE THE WRITING FROM THIS AUTHOR AND AS USUAL WAS NOT LET DOWN! EVERY BOOK HAS BEEN LIKE TAKING A STEP INTO ANOTHER WORLD-CREATIVE,RIVETING,AND ROMANTIC, ONE YOU JUST CAN'T PUT DOWN YET AGAIN!
    THANK YOU MELISSA MARR AND THANK YOU AUDIBLE.COM

    Story
    "Finally, it's over"
    What did you like best about Darkest Mercy? What did you like least?

    I did like that it ended and Aislinn was finally a badass and stopped whining. I didn't like that everyone gets what they want in the end. There's some suffering, but no really deaths or consequences. Irial didn't even die properly. Ugh. I don't like it when authors can't let go of their characters.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Irial would have stayed dead, Seth would have lost an eye, and Donia would have saved the day. Oh and Keenan would have died too maybe.


    What about Nick Landrum’s performance did you like?

    He was fine. Weird names with weird pronunciations.


    Did Darkest Mercy inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, to listen as quickly as possible for it to end so I could start something else.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Melissa Marr's other books are better.

    "A Great Final 5th Book!"
    What does Nick Landrum bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is his 4th appearance for this book series. The first book was a different narrator. I enjoyed the first narrator more than Nick Landrum.

    With that said, I think he did a good job.


    Any additional comments?

    This final book felt a little rushed. However it was very good and the ending was good.

    "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.
