Book Description (from dust cover):
Although Lauel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn he back on her human life — and especially her boyfriend, David — to return to the faerie world.But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable. She is forced to make a choice — a choice that could break her heart.
So I read and reviewed Wings in January of 2010. I really enjoyed it, especially the non-creepy faeries. With just over a year between, I had forgotten many of the details about Wings by the time I read Spells. Fortunately, that didn't cause any less enjoyment in my reading of Spells. I remembered some details, I lived without remembering others. And I suspect the lack of memory helped with my acceptance of the love triangle thing. Because I'm pretty sure David played a larger part in Wings, but I didn't have any problem liking Tamani (his rival for Laurel's affections) in this one.
I still appreciated the lack of creepy faeries; I liked the further glimpse into Aprilynne Pike's version of a Faerie World (and their class system). Overall, this book was a pleasure to read. I look forward to the 3rd in series, Illusions, due out in May of this year. And maybe I won't have such a gap between its publication and my reading it.
