"I don't love Sonny Flannery."

That's the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn't know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats—to a haven for Lost Fae that's hidden deep underneath New York City.

But Kelley's not about to let things end in heartbreak. To get Sonny back, she's got to find out who's after his magick—and how to use her own. She's got to uncover who's recruiting Janus Guards to murderously hunt innocent Faerie. She's got to help rebuild the shattered theater company she called family. And she's got to do it all without getting dangerously distracted by the Fennrys Wolf, whose legendary heart of stone seems to melt whenever he's around Kelley.

The intrigue and romance that began with Wondrous strange and Darklight come to a stormy head in Tempestuous, the breathtaking conclusion to Lesley Livingston's ravishing urban Faerie trilogy.
Taschima's POV:

In this conclusion to the Wondrous Strange trilogy Miss.Livingston delivered with a plot full of action, secrets and a kick ass heroine.

We start off right were we left off on the second book, so it goes pretty fast after that. It's like the book is full of adrenaline it needs to consume. Kelley just lied to Sonny, telling him she doesn't love him. Sonny is crushed, Kelley is crushed, heck even the theater is crushed. So Sonny and Kelley part ways, Kelley need to learn the secrets that lie inside the Faerie world in order to protect Sonny, and she also need to learn how to use her magic. Sonny on the other hand has nowhere to go, and so without direction he takes a train that will open his eyes to a world he always knew existed, but never thought he'd experience. Put this two stories together and then add Faerie lies, plots and secrets and you got yourself a great ending for a great series.

I loved how Lesley executed this ending! It was just right. I needed a book to read because I was taking the Greyhound from my mother's house to my current apartment, so I decided to give Tempestuous a go. I read it and didn't stop for a minute. Pretty much devoured it. I think Wondrous Strange fans will love this book. It's my favorite out of the series!

It's my favorite because of the plot line, and because of how the characters grow and adapt. Sonny had to learn to adapt to a new environment, a whole new world where he wasn't the King's trusty knight nor Kelley's lover. And Kelley needs to learn how to control her mother's power. Plus she has to find out who's behind everything, and she needs to act in the Tempest play. A lot of work! Plus the battle scenes were pretty kick ass. You also get to see more of Kelley's mother and father, plus her "aunt" and Sonny's father!

It was just a great, rounded, would read again kind of book. A fantastic balance of everything that works. Plus we get to see Kelley kick some actual butt, who doesn't want to see that!?

Merry Christmas!
