Spells by: Aprilynne Pike

Spells (Wings #2)

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?

I was so pleased to buy this sequel.  On the first book I fell in love with Lauren's world and wanted to find out more about it.  In this book Laurel learns more about her faerie truth and her real world.  She is dating David but still has deep feelings for Tamani who is clearly on a mission to win her heart.

The characters that were introduced in ‘Wings’ were explored more in this second novel. Laurel has been thrust into a position of great responsibility and is being torn between her human life and her inherent faerie gifts. David and Tamani’s love for Laurel intensified greatly and had me on the edge of my seat wondering which part of her she would follow to decide who she wanted to be with.

The chemistry between both these characters and Laurel was so strong and alluring it made me heartbroken at the end when she actually made her decision. Both these guys have amazing qualities that any girl would love, but as in most hard choices in life, Laurel had to be true to herself in deciding which life to lead.

I am completely in aw of the writing style of the author.  Every little detail explained helps to attract readers of  all ages to this amazing story.

My favorite character continues to be Tamani and I will continue rooting form him until the end.

I give this book four of five hearts.

Tammy :)
