About the Book"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 said, her voice barely above a whisper.
"Then I guess I'll be waiting forever."
Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she 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, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable. She is forced to make a choice—a choice that could break her heart.
The cover almost describes the book perfectly. I love the cover.
Things that I liked: I loved that this series is about faeries! I haven’t read anything like this before. I loved the details that Aprilynne Pike put into the creation of Laurel’s double life and both worlds that she must live in. I liked that even Laurel’s enemies were of supernatural instead of another human trying to poke and prod her like a science experiment. I love the adventures that Laurel must go through to save David, Tamani, Avalaon, and herself.
Things that I didn’t like: The only thing I didn’t like was that it felt slow as time, but at the same time I wanted to continue on with the adventures of Laurel, Tamani, and David to see how they defeat their enemies.
Overall: I would recommend this to anyone and I look forward to reading the third books, Illusions.
Until next time, Happy Reading!
