Overview

Un altro anno scolastico sta per cominciare e Laurel è finalmente felice. La sua storia d'amore con David procede a gonfie vele da quando lei ha rinunciato a vivere ad Avalon, tra le fate, per stargli accanto. Certo, non è stato facile dire addio a Tamani, ma Laurel è sicura di aver fatto la scelta giusta. Il primo giorno di scuola, però, accade qualcosa che turba la serenità appena conquistata: mentre attraversa il corridoio affollato di compagni, Laurel si ritrova a fissare un paio di occhi verdi e misteriosi, che conosce fin troppo bene. È lui, Tamani. In un istante il sentimento che credeva di aver dimenticato la travolge, insieme con il ricordo dei brividi e delle emozioni che solo lui riusciva a farle provare¿ Ma le notizie che porta Tamani interrompono bruscamente i suoi sogni a occhi aperti: la sua vita, e il regno di Avalon, sono di nuovo in pericolo. La minaccia, questa volta, viene da un nemico oscuro e potente, un nemico contro cui gli incantesimi delle fate potrebbero non bastare. Per Laurel è un momento cruciale: ignorerà la sua vera natura per restare con David, oppure combatterà per proteggere Avalon al fianco di Tamani? Il tempo stringe, perché l'insidia potrebbe essere ovunque. E anche le persone più insospettabili potrebbero nascondere segreti sconvolgenti. Come Yuki, la nuova studentessa dai delicati tratti orientali che sembra apparsa dal nulla¿. Il terzo, attesissimo e romanticissimo capitolo della saga inaugurata con Wings . Un romanzo pieno di suspense, amore e magia, che ci farà sognare fino all'ultimo, imprevedibile colpo di scena. Open publication - Free publishing - More david David Lawson on Facebook

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“The Wings [series] continues with a twist. A dramatic conclusion will leave readers anxious for the next installment.”
Romantic Times
“Wow. Pike has taken her already acclaimed series and turned the story up a notch. It’s full of plot twists and character development that keep the pages flying. I can hardly wait for the next book!”
School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—In Aprilynne Pike's sequel (2011) to Wings (2009, both HarperTeen), Laurel, a faerie adopted by human parents, expects this year to be different. Barnes is gone, hopefully taking with him the threat to Avalon, and Tamani seems to be honoring her wishes and staying away. On the first day of her senior year of high school, Laurel realizes how wrong she was. Tamani, a faerie, shows up posing as a foreign exchange student named Tam. This creates relationship issues between Laurel and David, a human, as they try to deal with Tam's arrival. But the even bigger issue is that Laurel and Avalon are still threatened. Klea, the black clad gun-toting troll hunter, also asks Laurel to take care of Yuki, a faerie unknown to Avalon. As more trolls are cited and Laurel and her friends are attacked, it appears that Yuki and Klea may be the biggest threats of all. Pike recaptures the excitement of the first book and fills the story with suspense and a surprise twist at the end. Mandy Siegfried does an excellent job of portraying the characters with all their quirks, and perfectly gives the secondary characters their personas. The greater focus on Laurel and Tamani's friends helps to flesh out the tale and makes this more than just a love triangle. Fans of the series will anxiously await the final title in the trilogy.—Sarah Flood, Breckinridge County Public Library, Hardinsburg, KY
