Live Chat with Melissa Marr--Darkest Mercy & New cover for Jessica #2

Yesterday was the live chat with Melissa Marr on her Wicked Lovely series, mostly pertaining to the fifth book in the series, Darkest Mercy. I'm not sure if you can replay the conversation, but here's the URL anyway: http://www.vivolive.com/harpercollins/melissamarr ! I believe you could ask a question in the messenger box, and she would answer, like, live on camera or something, hence the embed video player. I'm so mad that I missed it!

Darkest Mercy--Synopsis: (highlight to reveal)
"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 to 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 thrilling conclusion to Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless."

Has anyone gotten a chance to read it yet? Share your thoughts on it with me. :)

And look what I stumbled upon this morning...

Yes, it's official. At least I'm assuming it is. They finally have a cover up! For Jessica fans, highlight for the summary:
"When Jessica Packwood found out she was a Romanian vampire princess, she had the shock of her teenage life. Turns out that was the easy part. Now, married to Prince Lucius Vladescu, she has to claim her throne and convince a vampire nation she’s fit to be their queen. But Jess can’t even order a decent meal from her castle’s Romanian staff, let alone deal with devious undead subjects who would love to see her fail.

And when Lucius is accused of murdering a vampire Elder and imprisoned without the blood he needs, Jessica finds herself alone, fighting for both their survivals.

Desperate to clear her husband’s name and win his release, Jess enlists the help of her best friend Mindy Stankowicz and Lucius’s mysterious Italian cousin, Raniero Lovatu. But both of them are keeping some dark secrets. Can Jess figure out who to trust – and how to rise to power – before she loses everything, including the vampire she loves?

Full of romance, mystery, and danger, the highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side shows that sometimes a princess has to earn her “happily ever after” – with a sharpened stake in hand.

Cannot wait for this next book! I actually picked up Jessica's Guide to the Dark Side to re-read it. So, expect some blogging about that one. Hopefully, it's as good as it was the first time I read it. Feelings on a book can change, you know... 

Thanks for reading!
