My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All I can say is WOW! Well, not exactly true, I have much more to say....LOL In the words of "Steven Tyler" as said on "American Idol" --This book is so great, "it is a full and complete sentence!" She brought everything together beautifully. It was pure Wicked Loveliness! It seemed that everything just came around full circle in such a believable and exciting way. The book is quite the page turner. It switches between each of the main characters POV's. It has a few amazing twists that are very shocking. Throughout the whole story I have fell in love with the Summer King, the dark Kings and the Shadow King at different times, but with this final book I found myself loving them all at the same time! Melissa's writing allows you to picture exactly what is happening down to characteristics of each person. I was very satisfied by the ending although not what I thought it would be at all. :) I finished it last night and I am still thinking about it today. It was the last thing on my mind when I fell asleep and the first thing on my mind this morning. I love it when a story is able to really seep into you so much that the feelings and the characters linger with you long after reading the story.

If I could say one thing negative at all about this book, it would be :SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT, warning if you havent read the book , don't read this next section of my review until you do.

It would be that, I didn't feel like I got quite enough closure for Niall, Irial and Leslie. I know Seth kinda tells you the threads he sees but I want, I NEED to know if and / or when is she going to come to the dark court completely and commit to one of them and who would that be? My guess would be Niall but I know she loves Irial to, but her love for Irial seems more caring for a family member. Her love for Niall seems like a real passionate soulmate kind of love. I am so hoping that the next short story Melissa releases (becuz I am pretty sure there is one more she has promised) that it will be to give more closure to their story. "Stopping Time and Old Habits" were both about Niall so we can only hope. Plus I wouldn't mind seeing more from Devlin either.

Spoiler Alert OVer, you can read this next section:

Awesome , Awesome, Awesome! Brilliant story from book one to book final along with all the short extra stories. This is one of my top book series. Melissa has set the standard HIGH for YA Faery books. I am not sure it can get any better than this. :) Thanks Melissa for sharing your beautiful, wicked, lovely story with the world! Cant wait for the films! eeeeeekkkk.... :O
