Send the messengers for the Faery Courts. This is the end.

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.

Music Monday is a feature where I post a video of a song that reminds me of something or someone I’ve read…anything that relates to it in my mind.

What songs remind you of certain books or character?? Create a post and leave the link or just tell me about them in the comments. I’d love to know!!

This song could be for no other than Niall and Irial.

These two have the most intense relationship in the series, and I love them. The fact that they are sexy and deadly, but love with such an intensity is what makes them so appealing to me. I think especially Irial. He’s loved Niall all these centuries, even when Niall refused to even talk to him. And now, they are both together in the Dark Court and Niall could not live without Irial, even if he tried.

The Perishers are a band that has been around a while now. I first heard this song during a very touching scene in a rather crazy movie called “London” with Chris Evans (yum!) and Jessica Biel. I instantly fell in love with it!

It’s always made me teary eyed, but not as much as I thought of it relating to Irial and Niall, especially in Darkest Mercy. Hope you love it!

    Oooh. I love the Perishers! I was introduced to them years ago when "Sway" was played on a particulary heartwrenching scene if Veronica Mars :)
