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 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. 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.

Darkight is just as wondrous and strange as Wondrous Strange. It was a thrill to read. And even though it has been a long time since I've read the first book, Wondrous Strange, I'm actually trying really hard to remember everything, but luckily Darklight retells it again. Ever since Kelley Winslow realized she was a Faerie Princess, found true love and defeated the Wild Hunt, a band of lost Fae, and saving humanity; Kelley's back into her human world and preparing for a play Romeo and Juliet. She is stubborn (just like her mother) yet courageous and determined. And with every kiss that's in the script, she longs for Sonny, a changeling she met, fell in love with, and is stays in the Otherworld, her home. But eventually she gets her ticket back to her native land as she encounters a horrible muggler, and she finally gets to meet Sonny again. But he's changed as a Janus Guard, he is loyal to the the Winter King and he must kill the remaining Wild hunters that roam the land. There is also a powerful magic starting to surface and it's threatening to rip Kelley and Sonny apart.

As I read the book, it reminded me about The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. The main character, Meghan Chase is also a faery princess.

This story blew me away. It is action-packed, romantic, scary and heartbreaking (when you get to the ending). This is one of my favourite faerie series I've ever read. And I can't wait for the next installment to arrive.

"Evil really needs to step up its game."

Sonny pulled Lucky up short and swung around to face Fenrys. "I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to die surprised. And I swear to all the gods, if the last thought that goes through my mind is 'What the hell was that?' I will hunt you down in the afterlife and punch you in the face throughout eternity."
