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?

Laurel the main character gets more involved in the fairy world, Avalon,( when she discovers she is a fairy after blooming her wings which are petals) and Tamani, his love interest from the fairy land, but a the same time she is still with David, her boyfriend from the human world. I would have loved if she chose who to be with already but not maybe in book three. Great way to put suspense Pike. This sequel to Wings was way better then the first one. It had more action. Put poor Tamani, I feels sorry for him, shame on you, Laurel. I think I'm ready for book three Illusions.

Cover: What is the name of the flower on the cover? I’m very intrigued…. Anyway, the cover is fine…

Laurel:

I HATE HER!!! I hate her because she can’t decide who she wants to be with… She wants to be with David but at the same time she’s happy when she’s with Tamani… What Tamani said to her was right… That she’s got the best of both worlds and for me she doesn’t deserve it… Sometimes I feel like she’s just with David because she really doesn’t want to be in Avalon and that she’s only with him because she doesn’t know what else to do… I also hate her because she seems to be just using Tamani… Whenever she’s in the fairy world (or Avalon) she always insists that Tamani has to be with her even though Tamani sometimes hesitates because of his ‘status’ in Avalon… I understand that being in a world you’re not familiar with is quite scary that’s why you want someone you know to be with you, but still… The only thing that I and Laurel agree is about the ‘status or rank’ of a fairy in Avalon (because that’s really discriminating)… Conclusion: Until the end, I HATE HER!!!

Tamani:

I feel so sorry for him… He always breaks the rules for Laurel but Laurel doesn’t seem to care about that or even appreciate it… I hope he just moves on and find someone else for him… I’d be happier… =)

Story:

The story, like its predecessor, an ordinary one… I didn’t see anything exceptional in the story… Nothing was making me long for a sequel (except the sneak peek for the third book)… I really can’t say much because as I said earlier nothing about this book imprinted in my mind…

Sneak Peek for Illusions:

This might be the only thing that made me somehow want to read the third book… See, the sneak peek was somewhat a shocking revelation… I really didn’t expect him to be there, I know he had a plan but I never thought about that in a million years… I just really wish she’ll return his feelings for her… Or he’ll just move on and find someone else…

Rating:

I rated this book three stars not because I like it but because this book made me react about Laurel’s actions… And in that way this book affected me… And for me, that’s quite worthy of a three stars… But seriously, I thought of giving this book two stars…

L goes to Avalon for the summer to learn more about her Fall skills and her culture. Back in the human world her boyfriend is waiting for her and her beat friend has found a boyfriend. L's mother is distant and her father supportive. L is trying to get used to her new life and an enemy from her past comes after her and the people she loves. They are saved by a mysterious person and in the end L has to choose between Tam and David.
I really liked the look into fairy culture and how L responds to it!
Good Points
Tamani!!!!!
