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.”
“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.”
