Tempestuous (Wondrous Strange #3)
That's the lie Kelley Winslow is 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 he...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
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
The problem was/is that I couldn't really remember much that happened in the previous two books. Soooo. It took me a little while to catch on. Anyway, that's my fault, not Ms. Livingston's. I've read too many books that are similar to this one. Need, Wicked Lovely, Wings, Tattoo, Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception, Tithe, Fairy Tale...you get the picture. In all of these books someone discovers they are somehow involved with fairies.

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
Jeg tror, at jeg havde alt for høje forventninger til denne bog. 'Sort lys' sluttede af sådan et spændende og hjerteknusende sted, men da jeg åbnede 'Stormen' var der absolut intet spor af den stærke slutning fra bogen før.
Dette er uden tvivl den bog i trilogien, jeg holder mindst af - bogen manglede simpelthen b ...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
An awesome end to this series, and a great pick up from where the last book left off. I am really happy with the balance of the real world, fae world, romance, action, and adventure. There are quite a few twists and turns, but the characters are still truthful to who they are, and you can see the development from book one. I think this was the strongest book of the series. And I loved the ending.
And this little reference to book one:
...Sonny Flannery stared down at her, his face a st ...more
I don't regret reading these books as they were released, but, if ...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
Tra i vari young adult che ci sono in circolazione sicuramente la trilogia della Livingston ha saputo mettere in campo la sua originalità. Far rivivere in una dimensione urban fantasy i personaggi che popolano lo shakespeariano Sogno di una notte di mezza estate ...more
Faeries don’t lie. They can’t lie. So when Kelley Winslow told Sonny Flannery she didn’t love him, that “[she] never did and [she] never will,” he had no reason to doubt her words. Kelley was Faerie after all. A Faerie princess. The daughter of King Auberon and Queen Mabh who was taken from the Otherwo ...more
I found myself loosing interest in the trilogy about half way through “Darklight” but my interest was renewed by the ending. Luckily, Livingston kept the pace up in this conclusion, and she pulled me into the world she created. I found myself rooting for Kelley in this book whereas I was indifferent to her in the books prior. I really enjoyed this finale. The Shake ...more
Why did I read the entire series, you might ask? I made myself read all three books because they wer ...more
Oh Fenn! Arggh!! (all I'm saying)
Sonny and Kelley of course are fantastic together.
I was however shocked how early on in the book the lies started being revealed but such is fiction :-)
Any way it was a good read; some unexpected alliances, some unexpected sacrafices *maybe not so much* but in theory.
A nice closing to the triology; may I just ...more
So far, this is hard to get into - lots of characters and new made up sci fi vocab terms to try to keep straight. But, maybe that's what happens when one reads the 3rd book in a trilogy w/o having read the previous two.
Okay, it gets better by p74 beca ...more
3 stelle e mezzo
Ed eccoci qui, alla fine dell’ennesima trilogia.
Ammetto che, c’è stato qualcosina che ha stonato un po’ rispetto ai precedenti. In primis, i protagonisti. In secundis, i sovrani delle corti. In terzis, il finale.
Partendo dal fatto che adoro i libri di fate, devo dire che sono un po’ allibita dal grado di crudeltà praticamente nullo. Sì, ok, qualche scena cruda c’è, ma cristo… Sono membri del popolo fatato, mica le amiche di Campanellino Trilli. Un po’ di stron ...more
