Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

Rating: 5/5
Kelley Winslow is an actress trying to make end meet and suddenly she is playing Titania in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Sonny Flannery is changeling, that is a part of the Janus guard. The Janus Guards job is to protect the world of humanity from the Fae that slip through Samhain Gate. Their worlds couldn't be more different, yet they are connected.
Sonny can tell that Kelley is different from the moment he finds her. He is instantaneously drawn to her, Kelley is his "Firecracker". Kelley does not understand why this man is following her or why he has this delirious claims that she is out of this world. Soon, they learn the truth, and realize how much trouble that they are truly in.
This is one of those books, where you sit in a chair and don't move until you are completely numb or have to get up for some reason. The characters are amazing. Kelley is an amazing protagonist. She had her flaws and about a million reasons why I liked her. For example, She isn't like, "There are fairies!" after he tells her. She reacts how most people would react, by laughing. Sonny is a lovely male character, that I want to learn more about. He kicks some major butt with the Fae and still saves the girl that he likes, which is something I find a great characteristic.
I also loved the plot. It was very interesting. Faeries + Theater = A Happy Sarah. The theater parts were amazing and so were the faeries. I liked the concept of two different worlds, that are only linked for a small part time. I liked how Kelley rejected that she was a faerie and slowly realized that she was. This book is amazing and I recommend it. If you like Tithe trilogy and Wicked Lovely Trilogy, I believe that you will enjoy this book.
Peace out, Sarah.


  1. HarperTeen sent me a copy and at first I was doubting it (dark fairy fantasy isn't really my thing) but now I'm excited to dive in! (:

  2. My butt got numb while reading this one too. I really enjoyed the theater parts and reading about the fairy world.

  3. Want to read this one very badly! But still haven't got around to it yet.
