Since the dawn of time, the Faerie have taken. . . . For seventeen-year-old actress Kelley Winslow, faeries are just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery, whose steel-gray eyes mask an equally steely determination to protect her. Sonny guards the Samhain Gate, which connects the mortal realm with the Faerie's enchanted, dangerous Otherworld. Usually kept shut by order of icy King Auberon, the Gate stands open but once a year. This year, as the time approaches when the Samhain Gate will swing wide and nightmarish Fae will fight their way into an unsuspecting human world, something different is happening . . . something wondrous and strange. And Kelley's eyes are opening not just to the Faerie that surround her but to the heritage that awaits her. Now Kelley must navigate deadly Faerie treachery—and her growing feelings for Sonny—in this dazzling page-turner filled with luminous romance. Wondrous Strange is a richly layered tale of love between faerie and mortal, betrayal between kings and queens, and magic . . . between author and reader.

Unreadably bad.If I found a fairy horse in my bathtub, I'd call animal control. Come on, you're mature enough to move to NYC on your own and make a living as an actress but you don't know how to call the police?It probably didn't help the book that the main love interest's name is Sonny, and when I ...
I really enjoyed this book. It featured a young actress, Kelley Winslow, who finally gets her big break landing the lead role of "Titania" in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream (one of my favourite of Shakespeare's works), and Sonny Flannery, a member of an elite group of guards working for King ...
This book has been on my TBR for so long (since I first got my Kobo!). I kept putting off reading it, stuck between being interested enough to purchase it initially and contemplate reading it every time I finished a book, and not feeling quite intrigued enough to start reading it. Here is the Kobo s...
Well, it's finally great to see a young adult novel that doesn't have a love triangle in it! That alone should give this book five stars, however it doesn't because I am not that easy to please. Should note there are some spoilers in this review.Again, I really wish Goodreads had a half star system....
