Book 2 (Book 1: Wondrous Strange)
In this sequel to Wondrous Strange, Kelley Winslow finds her NYC acting career blossoming as she takes the lead in Romeo and Juliet. But she also finds herself desperately missing Sonny Flannery-who was forced back to the Faerie Otherworld, charged with a dangerous mission by Kelley’s father, King Auberon. When Kelley finds herself thrown into the Otherworld following a deadly chase in Central Park, her passionate reunion with Sonny is cut short. Ancient magick is stirring, and a dangerous enemy has Sonny and Kelley caught in a web of Faerie deception that could tear their love apart.
I enjoyed this book a lot. It was just as entertaining as the first. The book begins with Kelley and Sonny being separated after the events in the first book. Kelley is living her life as an actress on stage and she is learning to harness her powers. Sonny is spending his time on order from the winter king Auberon to hunt down and kill the remaining members of the Hunt. In this book all 4 of the faerie leaders are introduced. Auberon for winter, Mabh for autumn, Titania for summer, and Gwynn for spring. A backstory on how the 4 realms were developed and a bit of history on the greenman is revealed. The greenman being the one who created the 4 gates that connect the faerie world with the mortal world. Kelley and Sonny’s relationship is strained in this book. They never really get to spend any time together which saddened me. More of Sonny’s backstory is revealed. Also, there isn’t too much action until the end of the book. The book ends pretty much how the first ended. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoyed the first and are excited about what will happen next.
There is a third book in the series and the cover can be seen on Lesley Livingston’s website.
