Spells






By Aprilynne Pike



Summary: 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?


My Thoughts: First, I want to say I have heard a lot of good and bad reviews about this series. I have heard a lot of people say they wouldn't even attempt to read it. Sucks for them! I loved it! I read Wings in a day and started Spells the next day and read it in 2 sittings. I loved them both. I did like Spells a little more though. In Spells, we are once again introduced to Laurel, her family, her friend Chelsea, her boyfriend David, her other "friend" Tamani; who is a fairy! In Wings, Laurel slowly realized she was a fairy and by Spells, she has accepted this and is trying to cope with it and lead a normal life. Of course nothing can go as planned because she has Trolls hunting her down, wanting crucial information from her. I don't want to give away the whole plot but I loved this book.This book revolves more about Laurel going to Avalon and spending time getting to learn about her heritige (being a fairy). I truly adore this series.

I started off so torn between David and Tamani. I mean, come on, David seems like a sweetheart and the kind of guy who will always be there for you. Yes, that's comforting and hot but than there is Tamani who comes off as a hunky awesome guy. You know you shouldn't like him because Laurel is already with David.But you find yourself thinking, come on Tamani, get the girl! And on top of his greatness, he's a fairy! By the time the book ended, I was rooting for Tamani and wanted Laurel and Tamani together. There was so much tension between them I had to reread a few paragraphs just so I could savor it more than once. A big grin would cross my face. Sorry David but I'm more in love with Tamani. Its been a while since I've loved a guy in a book and I'm still awwing over Tamani. Can he please be real? Pretty please! I just loved these books! They are so good!


Overall: Loved it! I'm team Tamani! I actually liked Laurel too. The kissing scene between Laurel and Tamani- HOT! I just adored Tamani's personality. The chemistry between them was so awesome. I wish book 3 was already out! The cliffhanger on the last page of Spells makes you just sit there and say, what what what? What is going to happen next???

Cover: Its cute. I like the flowers.

What I'd Give It:



Question: I guess Miley Cirus is going to play Laurel in the upcoming movie. I don't like/dislike her. Honestly, I'm more interested in whose going to play Tamani and David. What do you think? Who should be cast as them?

I just finished reading Wings and I'm about to write my review I liked it!
Is it official that movie thing?
I jsut saw The Last Song yesterday and I really didn't like Miley in it, I hope she won't be in the movie o.0

Cindy said...

Not sure if its official but it is on her IMDB page, so it looks that way. I don't care for her either way really. I'm really interested in whose going to play Tamani though. LOL

I’m glad you enjoyed this one. I can’t wait to read it. I loved Wings.

I've been having problems making my mind up about this book too. I've read negative reviews on it, the people made this series seem like it was for preteens or under. But I should just read the book and find out myself if I like it. I'm glad that you like this series.

I really enjoyed Wings, and I'm looking forward to the sequel. I'm glad to see that you liked it so much! It makes me even more excited for Spells.

NO!!!!! NOT HER! I absolutely ABHOR miley and her acting. I can't watch anything with her in it.

Kristin Rae said...

I just checked out Wings from the library... I can't say I'm excited now about reading it picturing Miley as the MC... they are oversaturating her market.

Lena said...

GLEEE! Awesome review. In Wings, I was torn between David and Tamani too. Probably leaning more towards Tamani. ACK! I can't wait to read this now!

Oh gee I like David more but Spells sounds good it might change my mind about Tamani :o

Maria the Bookworm said...

I really hope Laurel ends up with Tamani :D Great review!

Kimberly said...

I hate that she's with David!!! I read this book in one day hoping that it would finally end the way I wanted but nope! I feel like David has nothing on Tamani. I wish at the very end it said something like look for the next book. I had to find online that it is only 2 of 4. If this a movie, I don't think I would see it because it would ruin what I picture that characters as. Especially if Miley Cyrus plays Laurel. As if by the end of reading Spells I didn't despise her enough already! I hope she makes the right choice between boys and redeems herself in the third book!Team Tamani! :)
