From GoodReads

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.
My Thoughts
This series for me has had a lot of ups and downs. Mostly ups though. And somewhere in the middle of this book, I was like OH NO I am so not going to like this ending. But man I was totally wrong. Melissa Marr really ended it the only way it should end. And even though I was leaning towards something else I am really glad she was writing the book and not me because she gave it a perfect ending.

I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I have to say it is one of my favorites in the series. Although I am still not sure I got my Seth back that was in book one, I am still happy. You were able to see ALL the characters we have come to love in the first 3 books. (The main ones in the 4th didn't play major roles.)

The one person I want to talk about, I really can't because that would contain waaaay too many spoilers. 

If you are a fan of the series then you WILL for sure love this book and you will be satisfied!!


  1. Awesome! I plan to read this one after I finish up my other book. I have about 50 pages to go! Can't wait to read this though!

  2. Yaaay! Sounds like a great installment. I finished Wicked Lovely but I still need to get Ink Exchange and the others to read this one. :D Great Review. I'm looking forward to reading this. :D
