Spells" by Aprilynne Pike [4]

A year ago Laurel discovered that she is a faerie, placed among humans when she was a baby. Although she's come to accept her true identity, Laurel refuses to turn her back on her human life - especially her boyfriend, David.

But the faerie realm is in grave danger and when Laurel is summoned, she must trust charismatic faerie-guard Tamani. Laurel's feelings for him are strong, and she is soon forced to make a choice that could break her heart...

The second book in this series and it starts off about six months after where "Wings" the previous book left off. Laurel is summoned to the Academy of Avalon to start learning her role as a faerie and while it is all quite thrilling and adventurous she is struggling to learn the basics as a faerie. Her friendship with the guard Tamani is starting to have an impact on her relationship with her boyfriend David, lines are starting to get blurred.

Then there is the danger of the trolls and Barnes who has been hunting her. Life couldn't be anymore difficult but wait...yes there is always something more and Laurel has to find the "faerie" in her to stay alive.

Really well written second novel to this series....but as usual we have to wait for the next installment!

I probably enjoyed the first book a little more than the second, but that doesn't mean that the series isn't good because it is. Great books for young teenage girls, they will love reading it.
I'm assuming the next installment is out sometime in 2011. Looking forward to it.
Beautiful covers too, I bought the U.K versions but the others are pretty too.

I rate this book 4 stars.
