Publisher's Summary

A magical romance blossoms in the follow-up to WINGS, the bestselling novel described by Stephenie Meyer as "a remarkable debut".

"I can't just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can't 'steal' you away. I just have to wait, and hope that someday you'll ask," Tamani said. "And if I don't?" Laurel asked, her voice barely above a whisper. "Then I guess I'll be waiting forever."

It's been almost a year since Laurel discovered that she is a faerie, placed with human parents as an infant to help protect the gateway to the faerie realm of Avalon. Although she's come to accept her true identity, Laurel refuses to turn her back on her human life-and especially her boyfriend, David-to return to the faerie world. But when she is summoned to Avalon to relearn her long-forgotten faerie magic, Laurel must depend on the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani.

Her feelings for him are undeniable, and she is forced to make a choice-a choice that could break her heart. When a deadly enemy resurfaces and puts both Laurel's life and Avalon in danger, Laurel must draw on all her human strength as well as her faerie skills to save both of her worlds and all of those she holds dear.

Critic Reviews

“Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers.” (Booklist)

9/10

I loved reading this book as it caught my imagination, i could picture it all in my head and could dream, now i listen to it and its just so beautiful as i can close my eyes and i'm there, the narrator is not the best and at first i wasn't going to listen because of it but I got used to her reading and love the story too much

So fantastic story 10/10
Narrator 8.5/10

A Spellbinder.

This book continues the story of Laurel, who suddenly grew a huge blue flower out of her back, just one of the things which told her she was a fairy.

Not the kind of stuff for a fortyish woman to read, right? wrong! This is not a book for babies, but either for the young or the young at heart. In short, for anyone fascinated with the Faye, and who always wanted to be one, and wondered what it would be like. wonder no more.

I liked this book better than its predecessor, as we saw the inside of the realm of Avalon, and Laurel's poignant struggle to reconcile her two worlds, and the two rather hot guys tugging at her heart. Personally, I think she chose the wrong one, but, there you go!

All in all, with the well told, quick moving story, and the beautiful naration, I found this a lovely read, and can't wait for book three.

absolutely love the story.

absolutely loved it. frustrated that the narrator changed the pronunciation of Tamani's name between the first book and the second book. but otherwise great.
