For Serious Faery Lovers Pt.2 - Lesley Livingston!



Acclaimed author, Lesley Livinston presents Darklight, the sequel to Wondrous Strange, at the Turning Pages Literary Festival. This is part of the day long celebration of books for children and teens on May 15th. Lesley will be presenting at 6pm at The Musem (10 King St. W. Kitchener).
LESLEY LIVINGSTON is the author of critically acclaimed Wondrous Strange, as well as an actress. She has a master’s degree in English from the University of Toronto, where she specialized in Arthurian and Shakespearean literature. She is a principal performer and founding member of the Tempest Theatre Group, based in Toronto.



Reviews for the first book in the trilogy, Wondrous Strange:

"The narrative is rich with incident and mounting tension.... it builds on the familiar without sacrificing originality...” – Quill & Quire, Starred Review

“Oh, bestselling Twilight, thou hast a strong contender…with mastery, Livingston handles the dramatic agony of growing up… as a young adult fantasy, this book has it all.” – The Globe and Mail

In Darklight, the sequel to Wondrous Strange, Kelley Winslow finds her NYC acting career blossoming as she takes the lead in Romeo and Juliet. But she also finds herself desperately missing Sonny Flannery—who was forced back to the Faerie Otherworld, charged with a dangerous mission by Kelley’s father, King Auberon.

When Kelley finds herself thrown into the Otherworld following a deadly chase in Central Park, her passionate reunion with Sonny is cut short. Ancient magick is stirring, and a dangerous enemy has Sonny and Kelley caught in a web of Faerie deception that could tear their love apart.

If you only get to see one author that day, see Lesley. She completely rocks. The books are great, and she does great readings. A favourite in my house, for sure.
