Description

In Wondrous Strange, Kelley Winslow starts living her dream. Seventeen years old, she has moved to New York City and started work with a theatre company. Sure, she’s only an understudy for the Avalon Players, a third-tier repertory company so far off-Broadway it might as well be in Hoboken, but things are looking up—the lead has broken her ankle and Kelley’s about to step into the role of Titania the Faerie Queen in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But Faeries are far more real than Kelley thinks, and a chance encounter in Central Park with a handsome young man named Sonny Flannery plunges her into an adventure she could never have imagined. Sonny and Kelley find themselves drawn to each other—and into a terrible plot that could spell disaster for both New York and the Faerie realm alike.

Much has changed since 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. In Darklight, 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.

In the days after Darklight, the Avalon Theatre has burned to the ground. The shadowy figure poisoning King Auberon is still at large, and Kelley and Sonny are torn apart—because of the lie Kelley told that changed everything. In Tempestuous, Kelley tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, while Sonny takes refuge with a band of Lost Fae in an abandoned reservoir beneath Central Park. But those who would steal the Green Magick are not finished yet. A final showdown is coming, one that will put Sonny and Kelley’s love for each other to the ultimate test—if they survive that long.
