One of the few main ones is when he leaves his home to protect one of the four gates. They open nine days every year, and the king assigned him and the other eleven Janus guards to protect the mortals and magic beings from getting in, or out.

Sonny meets a girl while on his way to the gate, a light in his head. His "firecracker". She is the main cause for all of the trials he faces throughout this story. Because of her, he finds that the Wild Hunt is ready to be called upon. Ready to be released. He deals with a boucca, a black-shuck, a siren, storm hags, Queen Mabh, King Auberon, almost dying (by enemies and even Kelley was an eventual threat at one point), getting stitches, the Kelpie in Kelley's bathtub, the Wild Hunt, and the whole time falling in love with Kelley and trying to keep her safe.

Towards the end of this book, Kelley makes a deal with her father. She wants the Wild Hunt to be over, and for Sonny to be safe. She gives up any magic powers she has, which only gives him more power to rule with. Well, after the Hunt is stopped by Kelley, her father tells her that Sonny will be safe. Except for one problem. He tells her that Sonny must go back with him to the fairy realm. Sonny is allowed one chance to see Kelley though. He doesn't get the chance to talk with her, but he gets to see her play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Wondrous Strange By: Lesley Livingston Continued:
