Customer Reviews of Tempestuous


Rated 5 out of 5 by from I. N.E.E.D. M.O.R.E.!!!!!!!!!!! An exhilerating conclusion to the Wondrous Strange trilogy... only it left me wanting... NEEDING... MORE!!!!!!!! Tempestuous starts off literally moments where Darklight left off. Kelley had just told Tyff (knowing that Sonny was listening) that she didn't love Sonny and never did... all in a ruse to drive Sonny and his green magick away for his own safety. The domino affect of this lie ripples right to the end of this trilogy. This last book ends triumphantly with all of our questions resolved. We find out who was behind all the diabolical events in the first two books and this one... who was behind the beckoning of the Wild Hunt in Wondrous Strange... who was behind Auberon's illness and the mystery of the death of the Greenman, among other wonderings. The story telling was so rich in Shakespeare and faerie folklore. Some characters that we thought trustworthy, were anything but. The loyalties of friends/allies were also in question... some were quite surprising while others I had suspected along the way. Aside from this awesome cast of characters, besides Sonny & Kelley... I think my favourite has to be Fennrys. His character had his faults yet wasn't too proud to admit his weaknesses and vulnerabilities in his wolfish way. He had me saying.... NOOOOOOO Fennnnnnn... at the end of the story... (I'll leave it at that!!) ;) The ending left me breathless.... I was desperating willing the book to materialize more pages... (as if "I" had magick?!!) I wanted so much more of Sonny & Kelley TOGETHER! Their reunion left me saying... YESSSSSSS... FIIIIIINALLY.... and they then went off to fight for the common good... albeit, separately. I get why... but they are just so magical together... I need more of them!! Their chemistry is palpable when they are in close proximity to each other... I WANT more of that... The cast of characters in Tempestuous and the other books in this trilogy are so richly written. You truly care for them... even the not-so-good-guys... because Lesley makes them so dimensional. I loved the wit and snarkiness throughout this entire story, too. There were a couple of *doors* left open, for which more of this story can be told... and that would make me so happy if Lesley did just that! Kelley & Sonny and their family and friends are charasmatic enough and have so much more stories to tell, to continue on... PLEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreaming of Books Review I was so torn while read Tempestuous--not because it wasn’t good, it was great and then some but because its always sad to see the end of a series. Remember Darklight the second book in the series? Well that ended with one doozy of a cliff-hanger ending so of course I wanted to see what Sonny’s reaction would be and how Kelley will deal with the big lie she told. Tempestuous picks up right where Darklight left off so if you’re planning to read the series then reading them back to back would be a good choice. I read the other two in the series almost a year ago and I didn’t go back and reread them when I started Tempestuous so there were some little things like certain characters that I had trouble recalling. Other than that had no problems with the main story and plotlines. This book really showed Sonny’s vulnerable side. After hearing Kelley’s proclamation he leaves in a daze. With nowhere to go he coincidently stumbles upon a underground faerie sanctuary for the Lost Fae. More and more Kelley is coming into her own. She’s learning how to use her faerie powers and she’s one tough cookie. In her mind she’s doing all she can to protect Sonny. I did feel bad for Fennry’s after everything that happened and was revealed in Tempestuous. His feeling were genuine and I do like him a lot but just not as much as I liked Sonny. Like its two predecessors Tempestuous was action packed with romance, intrigue, and a couple unexpected twists. Its one of the few book series that I’ve actually finished reading so if you haven’t read it yet don’t let this series pass you by.

( : Tempestuous: Tepestuous was absolutely awesome! i loved it! after reading Darklight i really wanted to read this right away because i wanted to know what would happen next. this is something i really love about Lesley Livingston's writing. you always want to know what is going to happen next. the beginning of Tempestuous was absolutely awesome. it was soo sad when Kelley turned into a kestral falcon. it broke my heart. i was soo happy when they came together. i was in class reading it and when i read that part i said "awww" outloud and evewryone turned and looked at me. it was veey embarasing but i was soo happy. i was also really happy when Emma and Herne met again. i was soo happy! i got really worried when Sonny found out the truth about himself.i was worried he wouldn't take it very well, but he too it very well whiich made me really happy. i also loved how Kelley accepted Mabh and Auberon as her parents. i was really really surprised to find out that Titania and Gwynn were behind the whole thing! Titania seemed so innocent and Gwynn seemed so trusting. it was just a whole new twist. i loved the ending too! i liked how Sonny saved his father. it made me soo happy! this the best book to end this trilogy!!!
