“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.

Description

Faerie can't lie . . . or can they?

Much has changed since autumn, when Kelley Winslow learned she was a Faerie princess, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved the mortal realm from the ravages of the Wild Hunt. Now Kelley is stuck in New York City, rehearsing Romeo and Juliet and missing Sonny more with every stage kiss, while Sonny has been forced back to the Otherworld and into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the remaining Hunters and Queen Mabh herself.

When a terrifying encounter sends Kelley tumbling into the Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but destined to be cut short. An ancient, hidden magick is stirring, and a dangerous new enemy is willing to risk everything to claim that power. Caught in a web of Faerie deception and shifting allegiances, Kelley and Sonny must tread carefully, for each next step could topple a kingdom . . . or tear them apart.

With breathtakingly high stakes, the talented Lesley Livingston delivers soaring romance and vividly magical characters in darklight, the second novel in the trilogy that began with wondrous strange.

Praise For Darklight (Wondrous Strange Trilogy #2)

“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)
