Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston
The third and final book in the Wonderous Strange series does not disappoint. In fact, Livingston has made an art of love and war, in fact at times combining them with brilliance. Tempestuous manages the entire emotional gamut—fear, loss, love, passion, hate, revenge, temptation. Our faerie princess and actress, Kelly, has some morally reprehensible decisions (though her motivations be admirable) but Sonny’s heroics more than make up for her shortcomings. In all, a great conclusion to a must read Fae series.

Bonus Points: for naming the source of the title quote!
From the pen of Lesley Livingston:”The Hawthorn trees are in bloom and the Fair Folk ride at midnight! For it is Beltane Eve and, on this night, the walls between the worlds thin and, in places, vanish…In Faerie mythology, Beltane is known as one of the “Days of the Open Doors” — one of the four points on the Celtic calendar when the realm of Faerie comes closest to our own. This is a time for celebration — for lighting bonfires and drinking to the health of your friends and the Good Neighbors. It is a time of high magick!”
