“I don’t love Sonny Flannery.”
That’s the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn’t know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats—to a haven for Lost Fae that’s hidden deep underneath New York City.
But Kelley’s not about to let things end in heartbreak. To get Sonny back, she’s got to find out who’s after his magick—and how to use her own. She’s got to uncover who’s recruiting Janus Guards to murderously hunt innocent Faerie. She’s got to help rebuild the shattered theater company she called family. And she’s got to do it all without getting dangerously distracted by the Fennrys Wolf, whose legendary heart of stone seems to melt whenever he’s around Kelley.
The intrigue and romance that began with Wondrous strange and Darklight come to a stormy head in Tempestuous, the breathtaking conclusion to Lesley Livingston’s ravishing urban Faerie trilogy.
I love the Faerie world that Lesley Livingston has created and it never disappoints. Tempestuous was no exception. The third installment was just as delightful and action packed as the first two books. This one picks up right where Darklight left us hanging and I was sucked in from page one.
It had been a year since I read Darklight and I was a little fuzzy on some of the details, but it didn’t take me long to remember things and get right back into the story. Its hard for me to say too much since this is the third book in the series and I don’t want to give anything away, but I must say if you haven’t read this series yet you are missing out! I love Livingston’s take on the Faerie courts. They aren’t terrifying like some, but they aren’t fluffy either. They are a perfect balance of the mischief and mayhem that you would expect from the Fae.
Kelley is a wonderful main character! She’s strong and she is very accepting of the things that are thrown her way. She doesn’t whine or feel sorry for herself, which is rare in Fantasy YA. Her relationship with Sonny is fantastic also. In this book it wasn’t as prominent as in the other books, but their connection and feelings for each other are undeniable. Sonny is also a great protagonist, although I always find myself being more anxious for Kelley’s chapters.
Overall, this is a fantastic series. One of my favorites! They are full of Faerie intrigue and and fascinating characters! The blurb says this book was the conclusion, but it didn’t feel like the conclusion! I hope there are more!!
