Book Review ~ Wings

Title: Wings
Author: Aprilynne Pikes
Rating: 3
Cover: 3.5

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.

Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

Wings is well written and described beautiful and all in all is a good book. Unfortunatley for me,  I like to be captivated and feel like I've entered into the characters world. I also need good twists and turns to keep me picking up the book (or not putting it down). I actually found that at times I began to wonder off into my own mind and not pay complete attention to what I was reading. The one twist the book did have was so predictable, seriously would they really kill off both of the main characters? Really? Despite all this, it was still enjoyable and was unique. I haven't read a thing like it, alot of time and effort must have gone into putting together the background information. It was GREAT! haha very refreshing. I  don't think I recommend you to buy this, but it is a good read for a younger reader.

Books in this series: Wings, Spells.
