Book Review: Spells (Wings #2) by Aprilynne Pike

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?

Spells is book #2 in the Wings Series by Aprilynne Pike. I had assumed this was a trilogy since it seems like every young adult book that comes out lately is part of a trilogy but alas it’s a quartet so there will be 2 more yet to be released books. Illusions comes out in May and the final book in 2012. Oh how I hate waiting for sequels.  This book had a great ending.  It wrapped up enough to leave me satisfied yet opened things up for something new.

I think I enjoyed Spells even more than then book 1, Wings. I love the character Tamani, seriously Laurel wake up and see what is before you!  You’re a faerie, he’s a faerie, David’s a human.  Easy decision – so don’t make it so hard.

This is a sweet, clean series that I recommend to those who enjoy faerie stories. I really enjoyed learning more about the faerie mythology, much of which was very unique. A good mix of faerie mythology, adventure and romance.

Content: Clean for older teens – a couple of the mildest of swearwords that are swear words in my home but aren’t in some homes, a reference to sex in the faerie world, etc.
