My Thoughts

Having read Darkest Mercy (Wicked Lovely, #5) by Melissa Marr the fifth and final chapter in the Wicked Lovely series I have to say nothing turned out quite like I expected. First, several characters were killed which I didn’t see coming. Then several characters changed roles and did unexpected things. All in all, a really interesting and explosive way to end the book series and well done.

In this final book, we find that the fairies from all the courts must find a way to work together to overcome one fairy who by sheer defiance has called herself queen and is out to destroy all that is and will be. But working together could prove harder than expected when discord and unseen obstacle keep getting in the way of saving what each value.

Melissa Marr has a way of capturing your attention from the first word to last and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen when you turn the page. For nothing is as it seems and with each new discovery comes the knowledge that people aren’t what they seem and they hold more secrets then you can think to imagine.

I so urge you to read this book and the whole series for that matter. The book series is captivating and engaging. A true truly good series right up there with Harry Potter and Hunger Games.

  1. Hmm, it’s been such a long time since I lost myself in a good book I wouldn’t really know what to recommend! Right now I am in the middle of a bible study so my reading time is either in my workbook or my bible. LOL!!

  2. Sounds like an interesting end to the series. There’s been a bigger trend on tv to kill off characters and defy the traditional roles of the characters, like in The Walking Dead. Sounds like this book keeps you guessing in the same way.

  3. I recently liked “Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles, and “Paper Love” by Sarah Wildman. I’m currently reading “Here I Am” by Jonathan Safran Foer, and I have gone through stages of hating it and loving it. I’m currently loving it!

  4. I’m always looking for new series to read and will definitely look out for this one. I always want to wait until all the books in a series are out before I start reading! I want to know what happens!
