Buy This Book:
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.

**Beware, if you have not read Wondrous Strange, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW!**

Wow, where do I possibly begin with Darklight? I adore this series so much. The premise is so enthralling: Kelley is actually the daughter of the Winter King and the Autumn Queen, stolen away when she was a baby by a mortal woman whose son was also stolen by the fey. That son just so happens to be Sonny Flannery, the boy that Kelley is madly in love with.

Fun, right?

Not just that, but Kelleys’ father, Auberon, has taken his side of Kelley’s birthright from her, leaving her with only her mother’s very potent, darker magick. At the Samhain gate is cracking, letting creatures through and making more work for the Janus guard.

This book was a perfect continuation of Wondrous Strange. It picked up slightly after WS ended, and immediately threw you into action. Kelley takes a trip to Central Park, which she should be avoiding, and from there things go bad.

What really surprised me about this book is the not-so-subtle hinting at Team Fennrys!!!!!! WHOA. From the moment that he started getting some major air time, I couldn’t stop thinking, “Okay, this is going somewhere. But where?” I’m also slightly chagrined to say that I can totally see Kelley with Fenn… But I don’t think it would be right. She belongs with Sonny.

If you liked Wondrous Strange, you’ll love Darklight. I was turning pages frantically, needing to know what happened next. In fact, I started at finished this book in just over 2 hours. I give this novel 5 out of five stars.

  1. It's right there is many similitudes between French and Spanish :). I've learned spanish during 5 years but now I've started russian classes in college :D.

    If you want to come in France, stop by Bordeaux I live and study there :).
