Review: This is the final installment of the Wicked Lovely series =( I’m so sad to see it end, but oh my, what an ending! Marr wraps everything up tightly. She leaves nothing undone. All my favorite characters from each of the books were featured in this final book, except for Ani and Delvin, although they were mentioned. What I was really excited about was that Keenan got a bunch of ‘screen’ time. I always wanted more of him and I finally got it. And I have to admit, Donia never really stuck with me until this one, so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself truly rooting for her and Keenan. A new character is introduced who plays a pivotal role, and all the faeries are on edge around him. For the first half of the book things move along in a predictable pattern as the faeries gravitate toward the battle with War. Marr’s writing is absolutely beautiful, and although it felt at first like this was just going to be a long wrap up, her writing kept me turning the pages, and I was surprised when a couple of twists took place, completely shocking me there near the end. I can honestly say I NEVER saw this one thing coming. Aislinn also had some shocking discoveries, and I’m happy with her decision. Seth, oh Seth. I’ve loved him from the start. I wish I could have gotten just a wee bit more of him in the book, seen more of his new faerie talents, but we are led to believe he has a bigger purpose in store for him. But that just makes me want to read more! The steamy is taken to a new level as the summer and winter courts yearn for their loves. I think I fanned myself more than a few times while reading. Yeah, it’s that hot. I even found myself imagining where the next book might lead for these characters. Gah! All right, enough of my whining that’s it’s over. This was an amazing book. Amazing series. One of my all-time favorites, and I think Ms. Marr did a fantastic job! If you haven’t read any of these books yet, straighten up and go get them! With Marr’s literary meets edgy prose, they are bound to become classics in the YA genre.
