One of the newer things in bookstores these days is "Wings" by Aprilynne Pike. This story is intriguing and wonderful as it fully immerses you into a world of faeries, in which faeries are so much different than any folklore I have ever heard or read about. It was a quick read and the writing was not too challenging but really a fantastic story. I finished it in about three hours because I was so into it. It is going to be one of four books in a series and was Pike's debut novel. It is really a wonderful, original story that is up and coming and fresh and just plain fantastic. Also, for all you twihards out there, this book was given a wonderful review by Stephenie Meyer!
Aprilynne Pike's best-selling debut, Wings, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl named Laurel who discovers she is a faerie sent among humans to guard the gateway to Avalon. When Laurel is thrust into the midst of a centuries-old battle between faeries and trolls, she's torn between a human and a faerie love, as well as her loyalties to each world. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
