Darkest Mercy is an Urban fantasy novel by Melissa Marr. It is set in the same universe as Marr's previous YA novels, but is not a sequel to Radiant Shadows; rather, it is a companion novel like Ink Exchange was, focusing on a different set of characters.

Critical response[edit]

Kirkus found it hard work, "for fans only".[1] However RT Book Reviews was much more positive, seeing it as an excellent if shocking conclusion to the series.[2]
