Review: Destined by Aprilynne Pike

Title: Destined

Series: Wings #4

Author: Aprilynne Pike

Published: May 1, 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers

Book Description: Destined delivers all the romance and action that fans expect as it brings Aprilynne Pike’s Wings series to a deeply satisfying conclusion.

Laurel used to think she was an ordinary girl from Crescent City, California. She never would have believed she was truly a faerie from a realm called Avalon.

Now Laurel must risk her life to save Avalon from destruction by Yuki—a rare and powerful Winter faerie—and troll-hunter Klea. But Laurel won’t have to fight alone; David and Tamani, two boys she loves in different ways, will be by her side, along with her best friend, Chelsea.

Readers of the Need and Graceling series will want to follow Laurel’s story from its beginning in Wings to its heart-stopping end in Destined.

Quotes: “I’m begging you, to come be with me.” And she pressed her mouth against his and murmured against his lips. “Forever.”

For a few seconds he didn’t respond.

Then a groan escaped his throat and he thrust his fingers in her hair, pulling her mouth back to his with a fierce hunger.

“Kiss me,” she whispered. “And don’t stop.”

“Tamani pulled out his cell.

“He has an IPhone?” her mom whispered as the second ring sounded in Laurel’s ear.

Laurel nodded. “I was saving that little tidbit of ammunition the next time we discussed me getting a cell.”

Review: So good yet so sad. I really loved this series from beginning to end. It was quite different from anything I’ve read lately. I’m looking forward to reading more like it! And so far this has been the best fantasy and fairy story I’ve come across yet.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

I would highly recommend this as it’s been my favorite YA/Fantasy series!
