Jul 28, Annabelle Marie Veronica pi,e it it was amazing Shelves: While it’s had its ups and downs like any other series, I’ve found it thoroughly enjoyable and a;rilynne book provided a satisfactory and bittersweet final novel. It also has Tamani, who practically makes up for any faults, but more on that later. I absolutely adored it.
Destined (Wings, #4) by Aprilynne Pike
Metaphorically speaking, of course. She can be almost ridiculously reckless but at the same time I understand that she does it to protect the people she loves.
She’s definitely grown from the beginning of the series and now to the end, and her maturity was especially remarkable in this novel. Laurel certainly isn’t a little girl anymore. I would follow that man faerie to the ends of the Earth. He’s just so freaking hot, and it is useless and pointless to deny it. He’s sweetly protective and very strong; he’s almost never afraid to back down but he picks his battles. I love that about him, and I love the fierce loyalty and the strong sense of love that I can tell he genuinely feels.
He tries to do what he honestly believes to be the right thing. In booksI am afraid I did not like David at all. But in Destined, he absolutely grew on me. I actually really grew to love him too in this book.
: Destined (Wings) (): Aprilynne Pike: Books
He’s brave and not afraid to offer his life for the greater good, which is so admirable. Byy doesn’t hesitate to stand behind Laurel and he’ll bh there for her when she and the faeries need him. I generally don’t really like her and only every once in a while have the drstined moment where I could see byy to her. But in Destined she really grew as a character and I couldn’t help admiring her. She’s a wonderful, fiercely loyal friend, and it’s fairly obvious that she would follow Laurel over a cliff.
So you can imagine how action-packed it is. There’s almost never a bored moment, and I usually had almost no time to catch my breath. I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation at pretty much all times. I couldn’t resist falling headlong into pjke story. Some things were stupid. Some things were so stupid they actually made me laugh out loud, hence the barely-five-star rating. Still, overall, I absolutely loved aprilyynne plot! It kept me entertained and interested, and I was never bored, which always counts for something.
I can’t even tell you if I was happy or sad with the decision because that would make it instantly obvious. I won’t even put it under a spoiler tab at this time because this book is super new and I don’t want to be the one who gives everything away. I will say that there’s a lot of fluffy romance, but it’s serious too. Some real decisions need to be made. It’s not really an easy decision for Laurel but she does make it.
That’s all I’ll say. Aprioynne first book was sweet but clearly the work of an inexperienced writer; now, in her fourth book, she’s a mature and established writer. Her writing voice has become absolutely beautiful and I love it so much. In Wings and Spells we get Laurel’s voice; in Illusions and Destined Tamani’s voice joins her, showing her increase in diversity. Tamani’s voice is better than Laurel’s, in my opinion, but I’m probably biased. It was heartbreaking in some ways but devastatingly beautiful in others.
There were happy endings, there were sad ones. People died, people lived. Just like in life. It was realistic desrined believable and clearly well thought out. In my opinion, the letter at the back pi,e the book cements everything as still more real and more heartbreaking, but be warned: It’s not all happy, not at all. So heed Aprilynne’s warning before you read the letter if you decide to do so.
I thought Aprilynne did a wonderful job, and I’m looking forward to seeing future works from her such apriynne Life After Theft. The title and prospect seem interesting, and also I have a fetish for the name Jeff, because there is this cute guy named Jeff who sits next to me in my physics class and this other aprilgnne handsome guy named Jeff who used to be in my class and then there’s a third adorable Jeff and…uhhh, I’m rambling.
So I’ll stop particularly since my boyfriend will read this. But anyway, I’m looking forward to Aprilynne’s future projects. Read more of my reviews on Sparkles and Lightning!
More Tam, pretty please: He’s the best part of this series.

Review: Destined by Aprilynne Pike
And yes, there will be spoilers. I’ll be honest and admit that the Wings series has been of a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s not the best written book I’ve ever read or the worst for that matter.
Destijed it had a level of entertainment that k Actual rating: But it had a level of entertainment that kept me around till the end. At least that’s what I tell myself because as I dove into Destined I just couldn’t help but think how incredibly boring it was.
And that greatly b me since I was just looking for a light, fluffy read. Instead I was left with a story cornier than a box of Kellogg’s cereal.
