I know I usually start off my reviews with a quick summary of the story, but this time I'm truly at a loss. And that's not a good thing.
I enjoyed Wondrous Strange enough to want to search out the sequel. Unfortunately, Darklight falls victim to the second-book curse. The writing is fairly good, but the plot is sorely lacking. I was more than halfway through the book when I realized that I had no idea what the plot was. After finishing the book, I'm still not sure. It seems to be a series of seemingly unrelated incidents that lead up to a major revelation about one of the characters and a cliffhanger ending.
Fans of the series will want to find out what happens next, of course. I'm going to be on the lookout for the next book so I can find out what happens to Kelley and Sonny. But I wasn't impressed with this part of the trilogy. I'm sure what happened in Darklight will turn out to be an important and integral part of the story... but at the moment it's left me unsatisfied and a little frustrated.
Overall: 3 out of 5
