Darkest Mercy – Melissa Marr

darkest mercy


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.

My Thoughts

Darkest Mercy concludes a series that has been difficult for me, at times, and has surprised me in many ways. This conclusion was far better than I could have hoped for.

There is an ever-changing point of view which can be confusing at times. However, it makes the intricacies of the plot move along at a fast, often hurried and harried, pace. Overall, this establishes a sense of urgency and desperation to the overall plot. I read through this book in a matter of hours, barely remember to take note in important facts or things I found worth mentioning.

Every single character undergoes some form of significant change – mostly to their character – as they strive to achieve what they want in the face of pending doom. So much character development – especially with Keenan! – it made my head spin, in a very good way.

While this review remains short, the fact that this is a brilliant conclusion to a strange, intriguing, and sometimes frustratingly infuriating series remains the same. I am very glad I went on this adventure, and I am glad to have learned some things along the way.

I am left now with one pressing question – which series/trilogy to embark on next!
