Review/Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston

Friday, December 31, 2010



"I don't love Sonny Flannery." 

That's the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn't know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats—to a haven for Lost Fae that's hidden deep underneath New York City. 

But Kelley's not about to let things end in heartbreak. To get Sonny back, she's got to find out who's after his magick—and how to use her own. She's got to uncover who's recruiting Janus Guards to murderously hunt innocent Faerie. She's got to help rebuild the shattered theater company she called family. And she's got to do it all without getting dangerously distracted by the Fennrys Wolf, whose legendary heart of stone seems to melt whenever he's around Kelley. 

The intrigue and romance that began with Wonderous Strnage and Darklight come to a stormy head in Tempestuous, the breathtaking conclusion to Lesley Livingston’s ravishing urban Faerie trilogy.


Once again, Lesley Livingston’s third and final book in her amazing fae series has successful transported me to NYC to follow Kelly Winslow as she attempts to make sense of the duel world that has become a part of her life. Tempestuous’ plot is not only complex, but suspenseful with several unexpected twists. I read this book in one sitting and the ending was completely satisfying, except for the fact that I will grievously miss Kelly and Sonny’s adventures. 

The title fits perfectly with the action in the story as both Kelly and Sonny are dealing with the aftermath and revelations revealed in Darklight. Kelly also is having a difficult time coming to terms with her feelings about her father, Oberon, and the fact that he is dying. As with Livingston’s first two books the action and suspense is non-stop. Much is revealed in this final adventure, and I loved every minute. 

I realize that this review is a bit short on details, but since Tempestuous picks up immediately after Darklight ends, any details would spoil the overall effect of the story. What I can say is that if you love stories about the fae and have yet to read this series then your are missing out.

I'm really eager to read this series. I love the covers and I've heard such good things about them. I think Amazon may be calling to me!!!

I definitely need to read this series. I got a sample on my Kindle. I can't wait to check it out! I've been in faeries since I read The Iron Fey series.

First I want to say a huge thanks for keeping this short on the details as I can not wait to explore this one on my own!! I'm so excited to read it and a bit sad that it's the end...but all good things must come to an end right?

People who have a fine house and also a reasonable earnings may not be typically located around the totally free websites. Whenever they can't have the funds for for you to sign up for a site then you definitely have to wonder the reason if this person may be for [url=http://coachfactoryoutlet2w.webs.com/]coach factory store online[/url] you. I know that I have spoken to people who tell me they cannot afford to pay to join a website for dating and they then go on to tell me they have no job, they cannot afford a phone, they cannot afford to [url=http://coachfactoryoutlet2w.webs.com/]http://coachfactoryoutlet2w.webs.com/[/url] take someone out, they go to a charity shop to buy their clothes and so on. This is fine if this is your lifestyle to but for people who have a better lifestyle there is no need to get involved.A word of warning for females only. Women should beware of the men who want to rush them into meeting very quickly, they will get lots of such offers, usually from people who have a lot to hide or who are not fussy about who they spend time with. The chances are that the guy who is in a huge rush to meet you was saying the same thing to another woman an hour ago and a different one this morning. Either they are extremely [url=http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/]cheap coach factory backpacks[/url] lonely and longing for some company - in which case wonder why - or they are simply not bothered about what you are like or your personality or how compatible you are, which makes the either very stupid, married, only seeking a quick fling or desperate.
You must make sure you possess voiced for you to them for some time so that you can meet and not on the web although around the phone way too. Steer with just about any male whom pronounces he has definitely not bought a usual [url=http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/]http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/[/url] land line phone at home or is never able to take your calls straight away evenings or weekends. Likewise be suspicious if he is usually unable to meet up then and wants to meet you for just an hour or so during the day.Profiles should be honest. They have a right to know that you are divorced but they do not have a right to immediately know why and how long for. You are competing with thousands of people on the same site [url=http://bagsoutletsonlines.com/]coach factory outlet online[/url] so you have to shine out over and above the others. Do not tell lies in order to make yourself sound more successful or exciting. Pretending to be much younger or saying you own a successful business when you do not will only backfire later and watch out for the others online that do that.

You will find 1000s of sites that come with dating services, many are customize built to fit personal needs, for instance online dating for that through 40s, online dating regarding lesbians, online dating regarding huge [url=http://coachfactoryhandbagoutlet2u.webs.com/]coach factory outle[/url] people, dating for nudists, which makes it easier and easier to make sure that you join the sites that suit your needs rather than wasting money and time on ones that do not. Some sites are totally free [url=http://coachfactoryhandbagoutlet2u.webs.com/]http://coachfactoryhandbagoutlet2u.webs.com/[/url] to join but then charge you if you send or receive messages, others are completely free to join and use and you can send and receive messages without ever spending any money. Word of warning - keep your feet on the ground, some of these tailor made sites are pandering to people who fantasise, such as the ones that offer women the chance to date a good looking, young, millionaire. Millionaires do join such sites but you will find [url=http://www.aicon.com/coachfactory.html]coach factory online[/url] that most of the members on such sites are the needy poor women wanting to meet them. The sites that are specifically for people wanting casual sex and for married people wanting secret liaisons are usually frequented by men and they tend to become very disappointed when they find out that most of the other members are men like themselves.
Of course you choose to do have odd people today at this kind of sites nevertheless the select few stay as well as air inside the real-world far too as well as you could have met these individuals just surrounding the corner while you went along to some sort of golf club. Odd [url=http://www.aicon.com/coachfactory.html]http://www.aicon.com/coachfactory.html[/url] people are not exclusive to online dating.Do not let the cost of a paid for site worry you. They are a good investment. For the price of a few drinks you could end up with a fantastic partner. A lot of the paid for sites are very good and do not cost much. Another word of warning - beware of the totally free sites. They seem like a bargain, but you often get riff raff on them and because those sites are free the people do not take it so seriously. A [url=http://coachfactorystore3w.webs.com/]coach factory online store[/url] lot of them sign up and do not even bother to go back and check their messages. People who are unemployed and unemployable and who can spend all day long sitting at their computer.
