“A year ago Laurel discovered that she is a faerie, placed among humans when she was a baby. Although she’s come to accept her true identity, Laurel refuses to turn her back on her human life – especially her boyfriend, David.
But the faerie realm is in grave danger and when Laurel is summoned, she must trust charismatic faerie-guard Tamani. Laurel’s feelings for him are strong, and she is soon forced to make a choice that could break her heart…”
After reading Wings (review here) I couldn’t wait to get stuck into this book to find out what happened next for Laurel. I just have to mention how much I love this cover – the picture above doesn’t really do it justice because in real life the whole cover shines, it is truly stunning!
Straight away I was absorbed back into the story, this time we learn so much more about Avalon, the different kinds of faeries and their social standings. Everything is so imaginative and I really enjoyed learning about it all alongside Laurel.
We found out more about Tamani in this book because Laurel spent much more time with him, I loved these moments and as I go through this series I think I’m definitely leaning towards ‘Team Tamani’. Laurel’s time at the festival was great and had me hanging on every word I was reading. The love triangle is certainly becoming more explosive, this was something I had hoped for and still hope for in the books to come.
The addition of Klea in this book was interesting, I felt very unsure about her and sense that there is much more to come from her including her reasons for doing what she does.
The book ended on a cliffhanger and left me desperately wanting to know what Tamani is up to! I have now ordered the next two books in the series so I won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
A fantastic, addictive book that is joining the ever-growing one day read list!
