“I don’t do patrols, I don’t go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I’ll keep you safe,” Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. “Or die trying.”

Laurel hasn’t seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life returns to normal, Laurel realizes that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.


This series is definitely on the lighter side compared to other, darker faery series. But I tell you what’s not light, Tamani’s love for Laurel! And Spells left off on a heartbreaking cliffhanger, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.


About Aprilynne Pike

Aprilynne Pike has been spinning faerie stories since she was a child with a hyper-active imagination. At the age of twenty she received her BA in Creative Writing from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. When not writing, Aprilynne can usually be found at the gym; she also enjoys singing, acting, reading, and working with pregnant moms as a childbirth educator and doula. Aprilynne currently lives with her husband and three kids in Utah, and dreams of warmer climates. Aprilynne Pike’s #1 New York Times best-selling debut, WINGS, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl with a not-so-ordinary destiny. In this tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever…

    I've yet to read this series. I keep hearing so many different reviews. Mostly so-so. And I have so many books to read first. So you would definitely recommend this series then?Melissa @ SheShines

    I am so excited that Wings is a free e-book right now, because I can't wait to read it! I've already bought the second book too! Now I'm kind of glad I waited if there is a cliffhanger! Now I won't have to wait long. Great choice. :)Jennifer of Little Shelf

    I have this one, but I have to read the rest of the series first! I'm really looking forward to reading them all together—softens the blow of cliffhangers! :D

    Yay! Have you visited Aprilynne Pike's blog? She's been posting excerpts from Illusions, and gah! they just make me more and more excited for this book! What did you think of the cover change (or at least the font difference and how they're reissuing it with this new font)? Awesome pick :).
