Goodreads Summary: "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.
Review: Tempestuous is the third book in the Wondrous Strange trilogy, the first being Wondrous Strange and the second being Dark Light. My review will be for the entire series. This trilogy is exciting and action packed and Tempestuous wraps everything up nicely. It’s the whole package: Magic, suspense, romance betrayals, mysteries, plot twists, surprises and a big fairy war thrown in.
Kelley and Sonny are likable characters and even though they make mistakes and some frustrating decisions, but you still root for them. When I read the first book, however, I thought that Kelley accepted her heritage rather quickly to be believable.  The secondary characters are great too. I particularly liked Maddox, Fennrys and Puck.
The books are really quick and entertaining reads, I highly recommend them. 
Content: Clean with the exception of one semi-crude reference and mild language in Dark Light.
Summary contains spoilers to the series so highlight to read:
