Waiting On Wednesday (26): Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.

Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr
February 22, 2011


-Recently, I read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and her graphic novel Santuary. These books were my introduction to a fantastic author and a enthralling series. I can't wait to read the rest of the Wicked Lovely books and check out the new one.
-Isn't this an incredible cover? I love that flower, the girl in the background, and the little sparkles.

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 bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless.

  7. I love the look and sound of this one. The cover is somehow modern and quite gothic at the same time, don't you think?

  9. I read Wicked Lovely and found it terribly dark. Did you enjoy the other books Alison? Would you recommend I give the series another try?

  10. Haha! That's great! I love what I do. Just find it hard to find time to read some days. I have been reading Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCollough for a week now. I read two pages then I fall asleep! Don't know whether it's the book or all the pressure I'm under at the moment.

  11. I've got high expectations for this book. I thought the last one, "Radiant Darkness" was a let down and was disappointed. I can't wait to see how it all ends!
