Tempestuous (book review)

Written by Lesley Livingston.

Tempestuous (Wondrous Strange) is the 3rd and final book in the Wondrous Strange series.  I finished Darklight (the 2nd book) almost exactly a year ago.  At the time I absolutely couldn't wait for this 3rd book to be released.  As I started this book I totally confused this series with Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series.  (I read all of the books available in her series last summer.)  I was glad I could go back in my blog here and figure out why I was confused.  (Too many fairy books maybe?  Nah)

Like the first 2 books, Livingston connected her story to on of Shakespeare's plays.  This time it was The Tempest.  I'm not as familiar with The Tempest as I was with Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet (I assume I'm not alone) but the excerpts Livingston included made me want to get a better idea of what it's about.

Description from LesleyLivingston.com...

“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.
