Darklight (Wondrous Strange #2)
When a terrifying encounter in Central Park hurls Kelley into the Faerie Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but all too brief. For Kelley and Sonny have been plunged into a game of Faerie deception and wavering allegiances in which the next move could topple a kingdom . . . or tear them apart.
I really liked how Darklight alternated between Kelley and Sonny’s point of view. It was great in the beginning since we got to see more of the Otherworld, even though Kelley was still in New York. Then once they’re reunited it became less necessary, but still enjoyable. Of course, they get separated again, since there’s something after each of them. Sonny is much more important character this time, and we learn something about him that changes everything for him and Kelley. Their romance is really sweet, but we don’t get too much of it, because of the circumstances.
The ending of Darklight was heartbreaking! Kelley had to make a really tough choice, but it was the only way to protect Sonny, and possibly the mortal world. The fractures in the gates are getting larger and more numerous, and new types of Fae are leaking through and wrecking havoc. I loved learning about these new creatures, even though they’re up to no good. I don’t think Darklight moved the plot forward too much; it just added some new complications that drag us further from a resolution. That’s the only reason this one gets one less star, but I’m finding that’s typical of the second book in a trilogy.
