SummaryAdd a Summary
The previous books in the series followed the four faerie courts of Summer, Winter, Dark, and High. Aislinn, who once human before she became queen of the Summer Fae, begins the book alone, wondering where Keenan (her king) and Seth (her lover) have disappeared to. Keenan is busy strengthening his court by searching for allies for the coming war. Donia, the Winter Queen, also prepares her court for war. Meanwhile, Niall the king of the Dark court is crazed by the death of the former Dark King, Irial. Seth leaves the safety of the High court in the hopes of helping his friends.

The Wicked Lovely series has been a bumpy ride. I adored Wicked Lovely and couldn't understand the changed point of view in Ink Exchange, especially seeing as how at the end she wasn't even turned into a Faery. I then loved Fragile Eternity and especially Niall and Irial's complicated relationship to each other in Radiant Shadows, now having said that it was hard to let the cast go in Darkest Mercy. Keenan and Donia, on opposite sides, are preparing for war while still pining after one another. Ash is trying to strengthen her court while fighting her own need for both Keenan and Seth. Seth meanwhile doesn't realize just what it means to be Sorcha's heir. He sometimes only thinks of what he considers important, from a still human perspective, and not from a Fae one. This causes Seth difficulties in this book.
The story covered a lot, and the reader barely had time to take a breath. All around though it was a fantastic ending. For some it might be anti climatic, for others, just right.
