[UPDATE!!  Check out my review mini-review of Darkest Mercy here!]

Greetings from the Cornfields of IL!!

I'm sitting in a coffe shop in Mattoon, IL finally able to use my computer and I had to put this up!!  I'm so excited about this book!!  Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely Series is one of my favorite YA reads and I can't wait for the last book Darkest Mercy to come out.  The cover has just been released and I love it!!  

Darkest Mercy (Wicked Lovely #5)
by Melissa Marr
March 1, 2011

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 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 exhilarating conclusion to Melissa Marr’s New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless~ 

What Melissa says on her Live Journal

I know that an earlier version of the Darkest Mercy cover has been posted out & about.  It was only live in Harper's catalogue for less than 12 hours, & it started popping up everywhere.  The pulled it, but it's been re-loaded all over.

Thank youto those of you helping tell folks that it was NOT the final cover.

This is . . . well, almost the final cover.  The vines are still wrong, but the effects are in place now.  I love it.  Please, meet Donia (portrayed by Linda) on the cover of the final WICKED LOVELY book . . . LOVE the steam & sunlight.

I can't wait to read about Donia!  She is one of my favorite characters, and I'm excited to see how Melissa pulls together all the Wicked Lovely books!  I'm a little sad, though, that it's going to be over!  But at least it looks like there's a movie in the works!  The Wicked Lovely Series screenplay is rumored to be written by Caroline Thompson who did The Corpse Bride and Edward Scissorhands, so that sounds awesome!!

Do you love them as much as I do?
