Laurel was found as an infant on her parents′ doorstep in a basket. Although she′s grown up not knowing where she came from, or who her true parents are, she′s lived a normal life-until the day she wakes up to discover that a flower has bloomed in the middle of her back.

Laurel is a faerie, placed with human parents because they own land that holds a sacred entrance to the faerie realm. As Laurel learns more about her true faerie background, she finds herself torn between two loves - a human, David, who has stood by her as a friend and confidante, and Tamani, a handsome faerie who is exciting, passionate, and able to take her back to her faerie roots, should she choose to go with him.

This fairytale soon becomes a nightmare when Laurel finds out that trolls-centuries′ old enemies of faeries-pose a threat to both her human parents and the faerie world. She enlists David and Tamani to help figure out a way to save both her parents, as well as the gateway to Avalon.

About the Author

Aprilynne has been spinning faerie stories since she was a child with a hyper-active imagination. When not writing, Aprilynne can usually be found at the gym; she also enjoys singing, acting and reading. Aprilynne currently lives with her husband and three kids in Utah in the USA, and dreams of warmer climates

Industry Reviews

"The book has a nice mix of danger and romance, with well-developed characters and a quick-moving plot."--School Library Journal "In the current crop of supernatural romances, this one stands out. Silky narration...delicious escapism."--Kirkus Reviews "Aprilynne Pike's WINGS is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds."--Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga

This is a terrific read for the young adult and the young at heart. There are not many books that are able to hold you spellbound throughout but this certainly fits into that category. This is an easy read. Extremely well thought out and portrayed. Strong believable characters are the icing on the cake. Could not wait to read the follow up.
