Darklight by Lesley Livingston

Characters: 19/20
Plot: 18/20
Originality: 19/20
Writing: 20/20
Recommendation: 19/20
Overall: 95/100 or A
Since last Autumn, when Kelley Winslot learned that she was a Faerie Princess, she fell in love with Sonny Flannery, who is a changeling guard. They saved the mortal realm from 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 has to hunt down what is left of the Wild Hunt. An horrible encounter sends Kelley into the Otherworld and has a reunion with Sonny. Ancient magick is stirring and a new enemy is emerging and is willing to go anything 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.
I loved Wondrous Strange, it was such an amazing book that I couldn't wait for next book. Darklight starts a bit after Wondrous Strange ends. Kelley still has her amazing personality, but she didn't have the spark from the last book. I think that it could be that she missed Sonny. Sonny was the strong person that he was in the last book. I loved how the romance became more intense and you could tell that they missed one and another. I also loved how the smaller characters were expanded on and you got to learn more weakness about the characters. The plot was really good. It wasn't predictable and also it was entertaining. Darklight is really Original, and it didn't remind me of any other faerie book. Livingston is a great writer and I can't wait for the new book. I recommend this to anyone that read Wondrous Strange and enjoyed it. Also anyone that loves faeries would love this series, so start Wondrous Strange and enjoy this beautifully written series.
