Overview

È iniziata l'estate, ma la vita di Laurel non è più la stessa. Ora che sa di essere una fata, non può ignorare le sue responsabilità nei confronti del regno di Avalon. E così, quando viene convocata dall'Accademia delle fate per un corso intensivo di magia, decide subito di partire. Ad Avalon, Laurel potrà finalmente essere se stessa. Imparerà gli incantesimi che le permetteranno di difendere le porte segrete del regno dal temibile Jeremiah Barnes e realizzerà così il suo destino. Ma tornare ad Avalon significa molto di più. Vuol dire rimettere in discussione tutto e ferire la persona che più ama al mondo, il suo dolcissimo fidanzato umano, David. Perché lì rivedrà Tamani. Sono passati molti mesi dal loro ultimo incontro, e Laurel crede di averlo dimenticato. Però, quando lui la stringe di nuovo tra le braccia, professandole amore eterno, dentro di lei si risvegliano emozioni inebrianti, emozioni che David non è mai riuscito a farle provare. Ancora una volta contesa tra due mondi, e tra due ragazzi tanto diversi quanto irresistibili, Laurel dovrà compiere una scelta dolorosissima, che forse le spezzerà il cuore per sempre. Ma la salvezza di Avalon è appesa a un filo e per Laurel è giunto il momento di decidere: qual è davvero il suo posto, tra gli umani o tra le fate? Qual è il suo futuro, con il tenero David o con l'affascinante Tamani? il secondo, attesissimo capitolo della saga di Wings. Una lettura piena di magia, romanticismo e avventura, una travolgente storia d'amore.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist (starred review)
“Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers.”
School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—After learning the previous year that she is a fall faerie, Laurel spends her summer vacation in Avalon, the home of the faeries in Aprilynne Pike's sequel (2010) to Wings (2009, both HarperTeen; Recorded Books, 2010). Laurel learns to defend against troll attacks, hoping to defeat Barnes, the troll who almost killed her and her friends the previous year. After leaving Avalon, Laurel begins to feel the conflict of being a faerie brought up in the human world and tries to decide between her human love, David, and the faerie sentry from her past, Tamani. She must also decide if she can trust the gun-toting Klea who offers her protection. Laurel's indecision may cost her friends' lives as Barnes stalks her for revenge. Pike accurately portrays the angst of growing up and the conflict of being part of two different cultures. Mandy Siegfried reads the parts with all the emotions the characters experience and brings Laurel to life, showing her neediness and her strength. The story includes an abundance of background information, and Laurel's relationships dominate much of the tale. The cliffhanger ending will leave those following the series anxious for the next book. Give this to those who enjoyed the love triangle in the Twilight series.—Sarah Flood, Breckinridge County Public Library, Hardinsburg, KY
Kirkus Reviews
In clean, fresh prose, never wilting in momentum as some middle volumes do, this second installment stays fragrant throughout. Laurel's a faerie, and faeries are plants. On her back, a blossom sprouts annually; she binds it down under her shirt to keep the secret. Briefly visiting magical Avalon, where she was born (but which she doesn't recall), she studies plant lore and faerie society. As is traditional in supernatural romance, two boys want her: human David, warm and devoted, and faerie sentry Tamani, sizzlingly attractive and pining for Laurel's return. Trolls stalk and entrap Laurel and her loved ones in the human world, seeking revenge and the gateway into Avalon, while a slick human woman with a special-ops team helps defeat trolls but rouses Laurel's suspicion. As in Wings (2009), Pike brazenly codes physical deformity and asymmetry as evil, and her engagingly clear prose sometimes blunders into floridness when describing Avalon. Among the current cornucopia of supernatural romances (and despite the presumably unintentional humor of a heroine who literally tastes like nectar), though, this one blooms. (Fantasy. YA)
