Review: Illusions by Aprilynne Pike

Title: Illusions

Series: Wings #3

Author: Aprilynne Pike

Published: May 3, 2011 by HarperCollins Publishers

Book Description: “I don’t do patrols, I don’t go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I’ll keep you safe,” Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. “Or die trying.”

Laurel hasn’t seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life is returning to normal, Laurel discovers that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.

This is the third installment of Aprilynne Pike’s Wings Series.

Quotes: “I’m not asking for forever,” Tamani said. “Yet. I’m just asking for a moment.”

“Oh my gosh, is that an iPhone?!” Laurel asked, her voice unconsciously rising in pitch and volume.
Tamani looked up at her, his expression blank.”Yeah?”
“He has an iPhone,” Laurel said to David. “My faerie sentry who generally lives without running water has an iPhone. That’s. Just. Great. Everyone in the whole world has a cell phone except me. That’s awesome.”

Review:  I started listening to this audiobook through scribd just before the new year and finished it after. I really enjoyed this story about Fairies and I was totally team Tamani. I really enjoyed Laurel’s character and was slightly sad when she didn’t accept David. I really loved the world of Avalon and would love to escape there. I also loved Laurel’s parents. These books really kept my interest and so far I have yet to find another series that I’m as hooked on.

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. I really recommend it if you want to read something fun.
