“If you enjoyed Lesley Livingston's Wondrous Strange, as I did, you will fall on this sequel with delight, savoring another chance to travel alongside these characters and delve further into their history. All those scenes in the theater still mark it as different, and Sonny and Kelly's scenes together are as enchanting as ever. I fell into the magic of this world and couldn't get my hands on the sequel quickly enough.”
-- Angela Mann, Kepler's Books & Magazine, Menlo Park, CA


Description

Faerie can’t lie . . . so they say

Despite the allure of the Faerie magick now coursing through her veins, Kelley Winslow’s just trying to get her New York City life back to normal. That means theater rehearsals for Romeo and Juliet and nightclub outings with roommate Tyff, even though Kelley misses gorgeous changeling Sonny Flannery so much her heart could burst. But Kelley’s newfound abilities have not gone unnoticed by malevolent eyes.

When a terrifying encounter in Central Park hurls Kelley into the Faerie Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but all too brief. For Kelley and Sonny have been plunged into a game of Faerie deception and wavering allegiances in which the next move could topple a kingdom . . . or tear them apart.

Praise For Darklight

“Fans of Livingston’s first book, Wondrous Strange (2009), won’t want to miss this action-packed sequel....Bad-boy Fennrys adds an interesting wrinkle in Kelley’s devoted but increasingly strained relationship with Sonny.... Readers will anxiously await the concluding volume.”
-Booklist

“In the world of Twilight read-alikes, Livingston’s novels stand out. Kelley has personality and spunk that Bella and others are missing, and the “star-crossed” romance between Kelley and Sonny is more emotional and genuine than others in this genre.”
-School Library Journal

“Will enthrall fans, and its cliffhanger ending will leave them screaming for more.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
