Book 4 in the Wicked Lovely series
Hands Down I have to say this is the best in the series so far. Marr has done it again and again in just 4 books. As Marr branches out into two characters that have been slowly coming into play, one would think they might be 'bored' with the series not being about the 'main' characters. Ani and Devlin's story is just what the book/series needed to give it the edge. The twists Marr is throwing into the series only give you that butterfly stomach feeling you get from the roller coaster. We see more action in this book; more tension; more suspense.
Ani is struggling with finding her place and thus just going through the motions of doing her duty to the court. She's special so she has to, but doesn't being special give her the niche she needs to fit it? Or will it put her at risk?
Devlin has been living in shadows of his sister his whole life...is it time for him to do something else?
I'm hoping Darkest Mercy is on my door step when I get home, but I'm already devastated that it is the last in the series...
