Spells by Aprilynne Pike

Title: Spells
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Reviewer: Stephanie
Genre: Teen Fantasy
Rating: Love
Alerts/Warnings: There is some violence, mild sexual references and some swearing.
Premise: 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? (

Opinions: "Spells" is the sequel to "Wings". I very much like the idea behind these books. Laurel as a faerie trying to protect her family and friends from Trolls who are trying to take over Avalon.

It's fascinating and very well written. I like that we get to see more of Laurel as a fae and her trying to fit in to both these worlds she is being placed. It is definately interesting to see the pull she gets from both sides.

Overall, it's a great book. There are more "alert" moments in this book than in Wings. But I very much have enjoye this series and am anxious to read the next book in the series.
