“The third and final entry in the series that began with Wondrous Strange (2008), this ends the story just right. … The romance! And the battles! And all the Shakespeare! It’s enjoyable [and] well-plotted.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Livingston brings this trilogy to a strong and satisfying conclusion, and readers will enjoy every minute, while wishing it did not have to end.” (School Library Journal)
“Livingston’s artistry at creating imaginary worlds that exist side by side with contemporary New York remains strong...fans of the first two entries will gulp this one down with gusto.” (Booklist) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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.
Sonny can't get these words out of his head. He thought that Kelley, his faerie princess, was the only one for him. Now, he doesn't know what to believe.
He retreats underground, where the Lost Fae congregate. Deep within the heart of New York City, Sonny tries to make sense of what has happened. Kelley is also distraught. Forced to lie about her true feelings for Sonny, she desperately searches for the one who wants to steal his magick.
Kelley is afraid that Sonny's power may destroy him, but she is running out of time, and she is still learning how to use her own talents. And why are innocent faeries being killed by Janus Guards? Too many questions and not enough answers. Does Kelley possess the strength and courage to save her people and Sonny?
Livingston's third installment in her WONDROUS STRANGE faerie series does an excellent job of tying up loose ends. These books are distinctly hers. If you are a fan of the recent influx of "faerie" novels, you will know what I mean. Livingston adds her own style and flavor to the traditional faerie stories. She even incorporates Shakespeare and his works into her tales. Shakespeare's The Tempest plays a vital role throughout the story.
You may be sad to see Kelley and Sonny's story end, but it will be interesting to see what Livingston gives us next!
