Review: Tempestuous by: Lesley Livingston

Tempestuous (Wondrous Strange, #3)Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The end of Ms. Livingston's trilogy brings mystery, possible betrayal, Faerie Court War all into the mix. The book picks up with Kelley learning all the secrets pertaining to Sonny and his true heritage and her need to protect him, the Court, and those that would use that knowledge for good or bad - so by wiping memories, giving back protective spells, and convincing him she doesn't love him.. because faeries can't lie (but she can). The Janus Guard has been corrupted and is now killing for killing sake, Herne and his Tavern are attacked which the Greenman is stolen, all while Auberon is slowly whithering away from the inside dying.

This book took a while to enjoy as much as Ms. Livingston's others. I had to push myself to get through almost 200 pages to really get to enjoy what I have come to enjoy from her as an author. The book is worth the read to finish the series out, and has beautiful touches within it - but there is that feeling as you read that the book was rushed and her heart wasn't as exposed on paper as it was in the previous novels.
