Summary : Six months have passed since Laurel saved the gateway to the faerie realm of Avalon. Now she must spend her summer there, honing her skills as a Fall faerie. But her human family and friends are still in mortal danger--and the gateway to Avalon is more compromised than ever.
When it comes time to protect those she loves, will she depend on David, her human boyfriend, for help? Or will she turn to Tamani, the electrifying faerie with whom her connection is undeniable?
My Opinion : It's official; Aprilynne Pike has mastered the art of cliffhangers! So here's something; cliffhangers are stupid! They break my heart and make me want to cry! Okay, maybe not, but they make me... unhappy. Really unhappy and frustrated.
Alright, so I really liked the first book of the series, Wings, from the well-known bestselling author, Aprilynne Pike. I liked Spells as much as I did with Wings, but I felt like Spells had something more to it. Something that made the reader excited just thinking about the next time he/she'd read it. Something magical.
Since I'd read a lot of bad reviews about this book (and now I know not to trust too much someone else's opinion, unless you know you have similar book tastes), and so, I wasn't sure about reading. But, hay, I thought, my library lends me the book for free; what do I have to loose? Only time to read another book. So I decided to try it; wise and clever decision you should make too.
The writing and plot had many twists I didn't see coming(stupid me! Sometimes book are so obvious, you don't see it coming, you say; Oh! It's too obvious, the author won't do it, but she/he does it!). And, the writing was fun and light; what you expect from a fairy/faery/fae/fey book.
Even though Laurel can be sweet and nice and caring, I thought she was plain mean to Tamani; she kept coming back to him even thought she wouldn't be with him. She was like; 'Oh Tamani, I don't need you, Bye! Oh Tamani, I need you, Hello!'.Even though I hated that, it was just part of the story, and so that's why I care less now. I think she's better off with Tamani (sorry for those who are Team David) and I hope she'll end up with him! David was fun, but, I'm pretty sure he's like pretty much every other boy his age (I hope you know what I mean.... horny, driven by hormones), or maybe that's just I,m wrong, but that's my impression on him.
Oh! I fell in love with the cover; green and a kind of pink red= awesome! I really love the cover! Don't you?
There's still Illusions, the third novel in the series, and an not yet released book in this series. I can't wait to read Illusions; I have it!
