As An Addict To This Series, I Was So Let Down

I'll start off by saying that previous to this book, I was in love with Aprilynne Pike's intriguing and beautifully woven story about a girl who discovers she's a fairy. I read the first three books in one sitting for each, and then proceeded to read them again. There was something magical not just about the story, but the writing, and I love, love, loved it!
However, Destined, which claims to be the "perfect ending" to the series, was the biggest let down I've ever read. As oppose to the other books, this one was not as well written; there were choppy paragraphs and the entire story didn't flow nicely as the others had. Another point was that in this last book, none of the characters are likable. You hate David for being so whiny and sulky for Laurel, and then smug and rude to Tamani when he gets Laurel. You hate Laurel for switching her feelings for the entire book and complaining about almost everything. You hate Chelsea because she's trying to be with David and gets huffy and pathetic when she doesn't get him. And of course you hate Yuki because she's being rude to everyone. Even the Winter Queen makes you cringe with every word she says, not because she is a chilling and brilliant character, but because it is so poorly written and she is way to idiotic a character to even find believable.
Now, in no way does this review affect my view of the other three books in the series. However, be warned, that if you do decide to take up the series, you're in for the biggest letdown of your life.

    Good Finale

    After reading the professional reveiws I was convinced this last book in the Wings series was going to be bad. I thought the start of the book was a little boring but after the first chapter or two the book got really interesting. Pike did a great job ending the story. I thought Laurel, Tam, David and Chelsea all got a happy ending, just not the way you'd expect it for a couple of them!

    Farewell

    The story was good, but I didn't care for the writing. It was long-winded at times and the fighting scenes were a tad boring. I was sad at the end of this book to know that I'll not be reading about these characters anymore :(

    My favorite

    This is definetly my favorite in the series. Maybe becuase theres not a ton of boyfriend/romantic stuff. Even though I'm totally for David I think the ending was perfect. I don't see why when David couldn't hold the sword Chelsea couldn't take. But anyway good book.

    No happy ending

    If you love a happy ending do NOT red this book. It might break your heart.
