Praise for WINGS
"Aprilynne Pike's WINGS is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds."
-Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight Saga
"An enthralling story of danger and love. This reinterpretation of the faerie story is one that will captivate readers with its plausibility and imagination."
"Silky narration . . . delicious escapism."
"[The book] has an interesting love triangle… The writing is accessible and easygoing, but pace and tension gathers efficiently in the background." TheBookBag.co.uk
"The story is well-written; Laurel's developing relationships… are convincing and the plot rattles along with enough conviction to hold your interest." School Librarian

To begin with I was still thoroughly intrigued by Klea, she was mysterious and I wasn't sure if she could be trusted. The arrival of Yuki also raised many questions and it wasn't until the end of this book that we start to get an idea as to who they both are.
Chelsea still provided some funny moments and even Shar made me chuckle at his confusion over his iPhone. The faerie guards were more integrated in the human world this time and I really enjoyed that part of it.
Laurel was more confident in this book than the other two and I enjoyed seeing this growth in her character. For a while Tamani seemed to be losing some of his cocky charm that I liked so much but soon picked it up again towards the end, yay! The animosity between him and David was also much stronger this time and when they finally came head to head I found it very exciting.
After reading this book I'm still `Team Tamani', although I do like David and I think he is a great friend for Laurel to have, but I feel like it makes more sense for her to be with Tamani (probably something to do with the fact that they are both faeries).
This was another intense instalment that I read in less than a day, I found it so difficult to put this book down especially towards the end when they were slowly piecing the clues together.
Every one of these books have had a fantastic ending that left me wanting more, I already have the last book Destined so I can't wait to get started on it to finally find out how this amazing series ends.
I thouroughly enjoyed the previous books in the series, Wings and then Spells, but this book is unarguably the best yet in the series. I found the addition of new characters refreshing and loved how often Tamani was present compared to the other books.
Another thing I found extremely lovely was the parts of the book from Tamani's point of view. I thought it was interesting to see how things were on the other side of their relationship.
The only thing I disliked about this book was the annoying but admittedly very clever cliffhanger at the end. I am now desperate to read the next book in the series, Destined. I suggest you buy both books together as you will undoubtedly be hungry for more after finishing this book. The free super-saver delivery is very handy.
A beautiful book filled with magic which any fans of Harry Potter or Twilight will definetely enjoy. I found this book completely and utterly amazing.
