Publisher's Summary

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.

No more vampires yay

If like me your fed up of vampires then read it. It has all the thrill of twilight but with a lead character that doesn't have depression and is believable.

My fave bit was when the two lead characters end up fighting for there life in a river.

Wonderful debut novel

Stephenie Meyer described this book as a "remarkable debut" which I admit influenced me to give it a try. The synopsis also caught my interest. Well, now I can add my own recommendation to Stephenie's. Wings is beautifully written with strong characters. It has just the right balance of magic, danger and romance and moves at a steady pace without ever feeling dragged out or rushed. The author's fairy world is well imagined and beautifully described. This is indeed a modern fairytale of the best kind. I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel.
