MY REVIEW:  This story is about Kelley finding out about the power of a lie and true love.  Unlike Darklight which was the second edition of this three part series of Wondrous Strange this was a more active plot.  There were more depths and stories between the plot.  If you are someone who needs a active plot or finds it difficult to read; this would be a great book for you.   I found Darklight difficult to read because of its slow pace.  The author includes many of the events that the reader and its characters finds out with in Darklight through out  Tempestuous pages.  If you do decided to skip Darklight, a reader will not fill lost while reading Tempestuous.  At the end I am pleased how the story of Kelley and Sonny ends.  This series was not my favorites among many of the series I have read in the past.  But overall it was not bad and I will always support authors who get inspired by well/unknown classic authors like Shakespeare in creating their own stories in hopes of new generations to get inspired and take the opportunity to read the classics.
