Tempestuous (Wondrous Strange #3)
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 magickand how to use her o...more
I was really mad about the whole "I don't love Sonny Flannery." thing, because really I just wanted to read about Kelley and Sonny sharing some lip action. Luckily there is still some hot lip action going on... and Sonny isn't the only one getting some, if you know what I mean...
This is such a marvelous series. Livingston is a brilliant writer... her stories really are a work of art, sometimes I get lost in her descriptions. And I mean that as a compliment.
I think this was probably my least favo...more

I. N.E.E.D. M.O.R.E.!!!!!
An exhilerating conclusion to the Wondrous Strange trilogy... only it left me wanting--needing--MORE!!!!
Tempestuous starts off literally moments where Darklight left off. Kelley had just told Tyff, knowing that Sonny was listening, that she didn't love Sonny and never did... all in a ruse to drive Sonny and his green magick away for his own safety. The domino affect of this semi-regr...more
WOW!. . . I hate giving anything away, so all I can say is if you like faerie books, read this series! It just got better and better. The first two in the series, Wondrous Strange and Darklight, I would consider a low five stars, but this one blew those two out of the water! Just the r...more
Tempestuous is an exciting, action packed ending to Lesley's Wondrous Strange series. With all the plot twists, the "who done it" mystery finally revealed, and Kelley and Sonny finally realizing their powers full potentials, I couldn't have asked for a better ending. The faerie courts are at war, allies are broken, new ones made, new characters are introduced, other character's end their journeys and some make choices that completely surprised me. Tempestuous is non stop action and one...more
First of all, Kelley pissed me off in this book. She makes some really stupid decisions that make me want to shake her and shout, "What are you thinking, you idiot!?" Then, of course, sh...more
So, when I knew it was the time to read Tempestuous, I read once again Darklight (yes, I didn't have with me the copy of Wondrous strange).
I read the Spanish edition of the book, and once again I was thrilled with the cover-art and how beautiful it looked in...more
“The third and final entry in the series that began with WONDROUS STRANGE (2008), this ends the story just right...The romance! And the battles! And all the Shakespeare! It’s enjoyable [and] well plotted.” --Kirkus
“This book brings the trilogy...to a careening, crashing, chaotic conclusion. Livingston's artistry at creating imaginary worlds that exist side by side with contemporary New York remains strong...Fans of the first two entries will gulp this one...more
I like how the parental issues Kelley has with her parents are reunited. I like how Sonny gets to find out who is dad is.
I feel bad for Mabh. I know she's wicked, and she...more

It was... simply amazing to be back in the fairy world with Sonny and Kelley. I was a bit scared to have some problems copming back into this story, as I've read the second book a long time ago, but as soon as I've read the first chapter, I knew what happened so far.
I really love this particular fairy world, as it reminds me on the Shakperian fae and isn't too abstract like other fairybooks these days. The language was once again great to read, and even if it wasn...more
However, there were a few things that bugged me throughout the book, and particularly at the end. This book picks up immediately after the end of the second. Sonny has just lost it and Kelley decides that in o...more
Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston lived up to its name- it made me angry and left me with conflicting emotions.
I really wanted this trilogy to end on a high note, but the final installment in the Wondrous Strange trilogy, Tempestuous, just didn’t do it for me.
First off, I must say this fast-moving novel does give closure to the Wondrous Strange trilogy. Unfortunately, from the middle of Darklight I predicted who the “bad guy...more
As the story progresses, we learn that the Janus Guard is acting out of the ordinary, with some being loyal to their original missive, and others being violent, destructive, and seeking out vengeance on all Lost Fae. Nobody knows who to trust...more
Eccoci al terzo e ultimo magico appuntamento con le fate di Shakespeare! Come il volume precedente, anche questo inizia con i nostri due innamorati separati, stavolta per volere di Kelley, disposta, seppur tra mille dubbi e pressioni esterne, a schiacciare l'amore che Sonny prova per lei pur di proteggerlo. Il ragazzo vaga intontito trovando rifugio tra le Creature Perdute, ma tra i Giano si nascondono dei traditori...more
Second I can't stand it when the coupled are apart in books D: it makes me wanna cry or scream or skip the entire plot until get back together! It's just so GRR!!! D:
Third, we got to know some of the characters even better we got so many personalities it was amazing!
I loved the story for who was behind it all and even though I'd already guessed who it was it was amazing!
What I didn't like was how confusing t...more
I believe books should flow through a person. It should be enjoyable and exciting, at the same time keeping you wondering about what will happen next. It should keep you reading for one thing.
This book is the third book in the 'Wondrous Strange' series. I loved the first book, it was funny and really enjoy...more
There's nothing I hate more than reading a book and have it all figured out halfway through. Luckily, that wasn't the case here. I had some theories by the end of the second book about what was going on and who was behind it. While my suspicions were right to some extent, there were still some surprises thrown my way.
Tempestuous picks up right where Darklight left off so if you’re planning to read the series then reading them back to back would be a...more
I think it's because I've read the books one after t...more
