Synopsis:Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
Wings is a lovely debut novel. I liked the way Aprilynne has written the story. Laurel,though a seemingly ordinary 15 year old girl,sprouts plants on her back one day. Her shock and astonishment at this beautiful 'wing like petals' have been beautifully demonstrated. I like the fact that one gets a thorough insight into her mind-how she is afraid that she is a 'freak',different from all her friends...thus her trying to conceal her wings,keeping it a secret from everyone(except David),even from her parents!
David is the best friend anyone can ever get. He helps Laurel,supports her,even risks his life for her...
Tamani,the beautiful faerie,on the other hand has an elusive attraction about him. He must be visually stunning with all his green hair-ends and all-I can still picture him...is a great sight!
Laurel must have had a really tough time deciding whom to choose-David or Tamani. I am really eager to read the sequel..
I will give Wings a 3.5 out of 5. Thats pretty good considering the narrative actually picks up pace after Tamani's appearance!
Mia is about to turn eighteen and has decided to put down her princess pen for good. This is your one and only chance to find out how it all ends - including the answers to hotter than hot questions like: Is the practically perfect J.P. the real love of Mia's life? Will an election in Genovia mean the end of princessdom for Mia? Is she REALLY the last virgin at Albert Einstein High? And finally, crucially, will Michael Moscovitz return from Japan and make a last-minute romantic gesture just in time to save our heroine from making a VERY big mistake You have "so" got to read the book
This book wraps up the series in a way certain to please all Princess Diaries fans. It is a very fulfilling ending and a much wanted one. Its a fast paced read and I finished the book in one sitting flat! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Personally,never a fan of J.P.,I always though Mia and Michael made the perfect couple and was quite disappointed at their break-up. But the ending proposed by the last book totally satisfies me. It couldn't have been better. I am sure all Mia's fans will agree with me...
Cabot brings her internationally bestselling series to a royal conclusion in the tenth and final installment. I highly recommend it!
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
This is perhaps the best paranormal book I have read so far!! I totally loved it. For me,it surely surpasses the Twilight series. I got hooked onto the story from the very first page.
Becca's writing is brilliant. The plot is multidimensional. Who doesn't like a few unexpected twists and turns? The whole concept of 'fallen angels' has been beautifully dealt with.
Patch and Nora are the perfect protagonists and make the best pair! Nora with her 'no-time-to fall-in-love' philosophy and Patch with his easy charm and delving-into-your-mind antagonizing intelligence make a perfect foil for each other. And Patch is so hot!! I wish he was mine...*sigh* I totally recommend this book! Its a great read. I am yet to meet a person who does not like this book! The book is super cool and Patch is super hot!!
