Review: Darklight by Lesley Livingston

Faerie can't lie . . . or can they?
Much has changed since autumn, when Kelley Winslow learned she was a Faerie princess, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved the mortal realm from the ravages of 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 into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the remaining Hunters and Queen Mabh herself.
When a terrifying encounter sends Kelley tumbling into the Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but destined to be cut short. An ancient, hidden magick is stirring, and a dangerous new enemy is willing to risk everything 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.
With breathtakingly high stakes, the talented Lesley Livingston delivers soaring romance and vividly magical characters in darklight, the second novel in the trilogy that began with wondrous strange.


This book. Oh goodness! My thoughts are jumbled so bear with me. Sonny was just plain amazing. I wish there were more coverage of his time hunting the members of The Wild Hunt. Let's back up for a second. I listened to the audio version of this book and it was read by the author. Seriously amazing! To hear the story read exactly the way the author intended was pure magic!!

Anywho, I  kept hoping and waiting for Kelley and Sonny to be reunited. I was looking forward to a sweet reunion, which I got but it was short lived. Once again, the creatures of the Otherworld were on the attack. 

We get to see more of the Fennrys Wolf and I loved him! He was one of my favorite characters. I found his laid back attitude but thirst for a good fight quite endearing.The only thing I didn't like was the hinting that Fenn was developing romantic feelings towards Kelley. Ugh, why?! There's plenty of action, plot twists, and drama with being tangled up with the Underworld, we don't need a possible love triangle too. I'm crossing my fingers that this plot line meets a short end at the beginning of book 3. And Mahb! I can't figure her out. She's so two faced but we haven't learned why yet. 

All in all, Darklight was a great second book and didn't fall prey to the typical Second Book Syndrome where it's just filler.
