MY REVIEW:  This one is not going to be one of my top books.  It was a little slow and it was hard to follow where the author was going with the plot.  But once all the pieces came together and the plot was forming it ended up being a good story.  You learn a little more about the fairy world.  The author base her story on Romeo and Juliet which Kelly is about to perform on stage.  Just like Romeo and Juliet it seems that Kelly and Sonny also have some challenges to go through.  Which one of them will end up being the darkling or the darklight within them; will the other one be able to control it or over power it?  Will they have a tragic ending to their story similar to Romeo and Juliet’s?
