Title: Destined

Series: Wings, Bk 4

ISBN: 9780061668128

As soon as I woke in the morning after staying up half the night reading the 3rd book in the Wings series, Illusions, I picked the story up with Destined.  This last book in the series is quickly paced.  It has to be.  The entire thing is set with 1-2 days.  And the majority of that time is spent in Avalon (the place of the faeries).

Revelations are made, battles are fought, and for a moment I thought maybe this wasn't the last book in the series after all (it is - something I'm happy about since further books would have ruined the story).  And you know how when you're watching a movie and stay for the credits you can maybe catch something extra at the end?  That's kinda how this worked.  "Author's Note" = credits and "The Last Word" = extra scene at the end.

I'm satisfied with how the series ended and wold be happy to read more by Aprilynne Pike.  It seems she has a new series coming out about a fallen goddess, the first of which is titled Earthbound.


  1. You make me want to clear my schedule and catch up on this

    1. You need to. =) I was dilly-dallying, but I was glad when I actually finished it after that little push of encouragement.

  2. Jo, now that I have my goals somewhat formed, I know I won't get to it unless I find this series on audio. The 52/52 challenge will be to make a dent in my Kindle books. This year, I'll probably be listening to more books too. :) So there's a chance!


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
