Excerpts: 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 magic 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.

From the Publisher

Quotes: “What did the Faerie that attacked you look like?”

“Super creepy. Ripped jeans, weird tattoos, bad hair. And, come to think of it, really nice boots…”


“On his feet.”

Sonny winced and rubbed his temples. “Where were you attacked, Kelley?”

“Okay, see…that was a joke.”

― Lesley Livingston, Darklight

“He can’t die! He’s the bloody King of Winter.”

Don’t be absurd,” said Bob, rolling an eye at the wounded Janus. “Just because he’s immortal doesn’t mean he can’t die!”

― Lesley Livingston, Darklight

My Review: I started listening to this during one of my readathons and so far don’t get the point of the storyline. Must listen to the last one as I simply can not start a series and not finish it!

My Rating: I gave it 1 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Would I recommend: No, because the storyline really wasn’t appealing to me.
