Description: 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: I thought this was a good follow up to Wings. All of the characters have grown. They're becoming more dimensional, especially Tamani and David. Spells made it even harder to choose between the two lead males. There is also a more inept look into the world of Avalon, and everybody's role in it. This world in Avalon seemed really believable because of one of the problem Pike chooses to deal with in the 2nd novel. It shold that even though there are difference between cultures, there are a lot of similarities.
The one big thing I didn't like was the pacing. It felt like the story was building and building and building, but then when the climax of the story hit, it wasn't as big as I think it should have been. Also, there were certain things about new characters that seemed rushed or too forced. New friendships were formed way too fast for me. These were my main disappointments, but overall it was a good story to continue the series with. I just saw the beautiful cover for Illusions and can't wait for the 3rd book!
