    • Even better than the first I loved the addition of leprechauns and the mythology of the green man It was cool to see how the author connected the two Excited to see what happens in book three.


    • Three words Sonny is MINE or impressive, exciting captivatingI was even impressed with Darklight than it s predecessor Wondrous Strange Livingston was able to weave an unpredictable and entertaining plot, with all the characters that I had grown to love in Wondrous Strange Not to mention characters that were re introduced like Fennrys Where did this delicious dish come from I ll have seconds please I loved the elements of the Otherworld, Livingston has a beautiful writing style that makes you f [...]

    • This series is hard for me to wrap my head around, I don t love these books, and had to push myself to finish this one, but they are certainly not terrible There are some great moments, they are well written, and I always like supporting Canadian authors I feel that the main problem is that the characterizations fall short, I just can t find myself rooting for Kelley, she has very little in the way of personality and makes stupid errors in judgment on a regular basis Secondary characters like Ma [...]

    • Darklight picked up rather quickly after Wondrous Strange left off, so if you haven t read Wondrous Strange you need to before you pick this one up Lesley Livingston has a way with words that draws the reader in and holds them to the pages until the end Her descriptions are beautiful and to the point The plot is also amazing, I was on the edge of my seat through most of the novel, and by the end when I thought I had everything figured out BAM, new secrets are revealed, characters are different t [...]

    • Darklight is yet again another magical, action packed installment of one of the best faerie series I ve ever read I love how this book continues to enlighten the reader with character development I strongly feel I know about these characters with every page I read My favorite aspect of this second book is experiencing the faerie realm Lesley s choice of words to describe the fae world sparkled literally in my mind with beautiful images I once again fell in love with Sonny, however I also starte [...]


    • Sei talmente imbacuccato che sembra che tu ti sia messo una pecora sulle spalle , esclam Sonny Che cavolo di principe vichingo sei Come la maggior parte dei seguiti non mi piaciuto molto, diciamo che salvo la prima parte e assolutamente non salvo la seconda e il finale.Mi sembra che le poche cose decenti del primo libro qui vengano tutte ribaltate per dare alla protagonista un alone di Mary Sue pazzesco Ancora molte cose non sono certe ma mi sembra che vogliamo mettere in buona luce Autunno e In [...]


    • Livingston follows up Wondrous Strange with a perfect combination of suspense, action, and romance in Darklight After I finished reading Wondrous Strange last year, I jumped online to find out if there would be a sequel and I had to bite my nails because I didn t have an answer So, imagine how thrilled I was to finally get the news of a sequel, I was practically grinning for ear to ear.I love the characters in this series Livingston did an amazing job Kelley and Sonny have been through so much a [...]


    • I love this book I don t know what else to say about it the writing was good, I love the characters I think I m even starting to like Wolf, which is no bueno, cause I m supposed to be rooting for Sonny but I still am , one thing that bugs me is sometimes Sonny and Fenn are very similar Too similar Sometimes Sonny doesn t have much character I guess, I kind of forgot what his like signature I guess Like Fenn is unflappable part of my favorite quote from the book and Kelley is like most heroines i [...]


    • UGH You ll want to throw this book at the wall please dont when you finish it Everything you don t expect to happen happens, and all the things you want to happen don t Not to say this was a bad book, it was just the opposite absolute excellence Not only was it exquisite with its imagery and details, this storyline is endearing as well as dangerous, introducing new definitions to fantastic creatures we thought we knew so well The deep, passionate romance between Sonny and Kelly is pulled and str [...]


    • I wish I had read these books all together instead of waiting so long after I read the first book, but once I got into the story and remembered what happened in the first book, it was easy enough to get back into things.I m a big fan of Kelley and Sonny and I want to see them able to be together in the end, but many books have proven to me that I don t always get what I want The ending of this book leaves things very much in the air It s not a huge cliffhanger, but we do know by the end that the [...]


    • Meno di tre stelline veramente, mi trovo proprio male con questi voti che non permettono le mezze misure arg Va beh, comunque peggio del primo soprattutto nel finale che quasi sembrava Twilight.Kelly piuttosto strana, a dirla tutta Sembra non voler passare per cattiva come la madre, per quando un rapitore cerca di rubarle l orologio a Central Park lei dopo averlo spaventato e messo in fuga pensa bene di inseguirlo quando non ci sarebbe nessun bisogno, ormai fuggito e non le avrebbe fatto del mal [...]

    • Darklight picks up about five months after the events of the first novel The characters here are just as lovable and well rounded as in book one, and the new characters added to the ensemble are just as interesting, detailed and useful No character dropping here everybody has a place and contributes to the overall story And the storyworld of the series is so unique, detailed, and original Unlike Wondrous Strange which took place exclusively in New York City , this novel features world hopping be [...]

    • 4.5 starsI really enjoyed Wondrous Strange and as soon as I finished it I picked up Darklight and read it in a couple hours I really liked this sequel Darklight starts right were Wondrous Strange ends I liked that I got to know about the characters, including Fennrys, who was one of my favorite characters As the plot twists continued answers I had hoped to receive from Wondrous Strange were revealed.The story starts with Sonny, the Janus warrior is back in the faerie realm completing a task for [...]


    • Hendes sarkasme var et godmodigt hint til Sonny om at droppe den overdrevne bekymring Hun kunne godt passe p sig selv Og hvis det blev n dvendigt, kunne hun ogs passe p ham Efter en god, men m ske en smule tr g start p serien med bogen Kelley l s min anmeldelse her , var det virkelig fedt at starte p Sort Lys og blive kastet direkte ind i en sp ndende forts ttelse.Historien starter et halvt rs tid efter sidste bog sluttede og det halve r, har egentligt bare v ret stille og roligt og hverdagsagti [...]


    • It had been over a year since I read Wondrous Strange, so it did take a few chapters for me to settle into Darklight I was actually surprised by how much I did remember from the first book, and whatever I didn t, I was soon reminded of Soon enough I was fully immersed in the magic that is Central Park and the Otherworld Darklight begins six months later with Kelley preparing for her role as Juliet in an upcoming production She s also missing Sonny, who is still trapped in the Otherworld cleaning [...]


    • Fans of Wondrous Strange rejoice Lesley Livingston is back and she s better than ever Darklight evokes the same light fluidity with the heavy faerie battles and somehow still managing to find time to make the crowd swoon over Kelley and Sonny She incorporates Shakespeare, theater, and faerie history in this action packed novel.If you have yet to read Wondrous Strange, do not attempt to pick this book up If you have read Wondrous Strange, brush up with it again There s a lot of dialogue and plots [...]


    • Well, it s clearly been too long since I read the first oneor I read the first one too fast because I had a hard time remembering the finer details of Wondrous Strange and it really seemed to impact my enjoyment of reading the sequel, Darklight That or it was a mediocre middle book I m not sure My problem seemed to start out from page one Things were occuring that I had the smallest grasp of rememberance of Ok, I don t remember this, but I ll go with it It affected my whole reading of the second [...]


    • This is one time that I think the second book was better than the first This book was really a 4.5 for me I am just getting really stingy with 5 stars because I have read so many really incredible books I liked Darklight better than Wondrous Strange, and I think it is because there was a lot of the mystique of the Fey in it and less of the mortal realm That may be because of the new characters that were brought in, and also that I already had been introduced to the world this book takes place i [...]


    • I started Darklight right after finishing Wondrous Strange It was heartbreaking how Kelley and Sonny found each other only to be separated I felt for both of them over how they each struggled with missing the other.I didn t like Kelley much in this second book Sure, I get she was testing her powers but I hated her lack of faith in Sonny Also, what was she doing with Fennrys I know she wasn t unfaithful to Sonny but she still didn t do anything to discourage Fennrys either.I guess Sonny was the o [...]


    • This was a clear improvement over the first book in the series.While this one was still action packed, with all sorts of quick traveling between the realms, there was much character development this time around, and I enjoyed it .Sonny and Kelley have been separated for months, as Sonny continues his mission to fight the Wild Hunt and Kelley tries to live with her new self They are still madly in love, but the physical distance between them as well as the fact that they really don t know one an [...]


    • I loved Wondrous Strange when I read it earlier in the year So I have been looking very forward to reading Darklight It was everything I hoped it would be and then some Darklight starts off about 6 months after the end of the first book and it starts off with a bang There is never a moment without suspense and action.Livingston s writing is superb I m in love with it It flows so smoothly that you forget you are reading a book I also love that you don t just get the story for Kelley s point of vi [...]


    • YessssssssssssssssssssssssssssThank you for not letting me down, Lesley To put this book in one word, heartwrenching Because I dont think that I can put these emotions into words.I started this at about 10 last night and stayed up reading until about 4.That is extraordinary because that means I slowed down and savored every single word of this book and marveled in its deliciousness It took me 6 hours for God s sake And I guess I was a bit sleepy and was also watching big bang theory during the b [...]


    • The ending of this story shows how immature the main character, Kelley, really is I found her decisions throughout the novel to be juvenile, decisions the author decided to include because The plot must go on I m having trouble seeing how a 17 18 year old who is just THIS immature can live on her own and take care of herself It s just so unrealistic I am captivated by the world, and I love how connected this story is with Shakespeare The writing is absolutely beautiful, and the author does a fan [...]


    • Hmm, every time I walk through this park something tries to kill me I think I will go for a walk in this park Oh, Kelley, Fenn and Sonny, along with her Fae parents think it s endearing how adorably stubborn she is I call it too stupid to live Kelley is so TSTL that she continually throws herself into the path of danger thereby hurting herself and those who are unfortunate enough to be tasked with protecting her My favorite part of the story was when the rest of the Janus guard told her off beca [...]


    • Much better than the first one, I think, though I can t pin down exactly on what.It introduces a lot of interesting plotlines and hints to be followed in the next installment, which makes me happy and frustrated at the same time.Well, all the good ones do pMost of the previous characters are present here, and over the course of the story become satisfyingly fleshed out and intriguing,all mysterious with their higher motives and ambiguity except maybe Kelley.I can t say the same for the relations [...]
