Darklight is the sequel to Wondrous Strange (2008).
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.

I absolutely loved Wondrous Strange. Loved the characters, enjoyed the take on the faerie world. I was not as impressed with Darklight. It was hard for me to get into the first half of the book. Once I got to the middle, it took off though. I think I was mostly irritated at Sonny and Kelley who were supposed to have fallen in love in Wondrous Strange, but weren’t acting like it anymore. They were being jealous, untrusting, and getting mad at each other for no reason. I’m still intrigued by the series, but not as excited about it as I was after reading Wondrous Strange.
