Wondrous Strange

It had such promise, and it disappointed. I got this one for Christmas There was an attempt at an explanation- she graduated early from high livinvston.

Then one day, she meets a weirdo in a park and ends up rescuing a kelpie from a pool in Central Park, and that ends up pulling her into the supernatural world of the faerie. There was also humor in there that was a nice surprise. Sonny is a stolen child in Auberon’s Fae realm, now serving as a Janus: Her face felt hot. Having lived all her life hidden in the mortal realm, she is unaware of being a Faerie princess, stolen from the Faerie realm as an infant. Her stubborn but highly entertaining attitude stayed in check throughout the entire novel, and I loved every minute of it.

Shiny, twinkly, nothing-wrong-with-her, everyone-loves-you MarySue.


I simply cannot say enough good things about this novel. At seventeen, Kelley Winslow has finished school and moved to New York wondroous pursue a career on the stage. Now, Kelley must come to terms with her heritage – and her growing feelings for Sonny – if she wants to save not only herself, but also the human world that she holds dear.

Anyway, getting back to the book, the main character is a girl named Kelley who is involved livingstom the Avalon theater company in New York. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be mergedredirectedor deleted.

For a paranormal romance, it is a little simple, but I still love the characters! She’s honest, she imperfect, and she doesn’t pull the Bella card.

Back when I was younger and this book gave me stars in my eyes lol. The beginning of this book is much better than the end, however. Well, those concepts are all here, but Livingston brings more Wondrous Strange to me offered a very clever, very interesting amount of mythology and folklore to explain the faerie world.

I think she’s the first character I’ve encountered who’s done that I graduated early too! Dec 22, Kimberly Derting rated it it was amazing.

Even the minor characters stood out to me, and they were fascinating. I promise I did NOT do that on purpose! The main character Kelly was brave and spunky, but not so much so that she lost her femininity.

The end was satisfying again with the looking hopefully to the future as opposed to the everyting-is-so-happy-with-rainbows-and-pants-that-never-wrinkle ending though it left me desperately hoping that a sequel is in the works.

And the names were stragne bit cringeworthy I’m undecided as to whether I would read more. Also, I loved that Livingston chose to tell Wondrous Strange using double perspectives. Parts of the interaction between Kelley and Sonny are hilarious, as he isn’t quite accustomed to some modern speech patterns, and they sort of baffle and confuse each other when they first meet and later as well. When Sonny discovers her true identity, an interlinking chain of events threaten to destroy both the realms, mortal as well as Faerie.

Kelley was 17 but was living in New York without any adult supervision.
