I couldn't let myself like it too much, the main character kept annoying me. But I liked Tamani, so I couldn't give the book a terrible rating

A very good second book. Liked seeing more of Avalon. I have never been a fan of the cast system, so am in agreement with Laurel that it needs to change. Hopefully the next two books will see the end of it.

Once you get through the first few pages, you're enveloped in the words, as Laurel struggles to be integrated inot Avalon society, and learns that she may play a larger roll in the impending battle than she may have thought

this book wasn't as good as the first book but i loved it all the same. It was kinda of boring in the middle but it picked up quickly. By the end of the book you find out more things about the fairies and about Laurel and Tamani than you wouid of if you stopped reading it. I will definitely read the third book because this series is addiciting even with some boring parts that make you want to stop you just want to keep reading and reading it until it's finished! It;s different from any story i have ever read before. Great story! :)

In Spells, we are once again introduced to Laurel, her family, her friend Chelsea, her boyfriend David, her other "friend" Tamani; who is a fairy! In Wings, Laurel slowly realized she was a fairy and by Spells, she has accepted this and is trying to cope with it and lead a normal life. Of course nothing can go as planned because she has Trolls hunting her down, wanting crucial information from her. I don't want to give away the whole plot but I loved this book.This book revolves more about Laurel going to Avalon and spending time getting to learn about her heritige (being a fairy). I truly adore this series.

I am so torn between David and Tamani. She loves David and to her is sixeen and feels like a human, she's also a fairy and drawn to Tamani. I have no doubt of Tam's love for Laurel or David's for that matter, I do feel that she loves David more and though she loves Avalon does she want to return there full time? all she's ever know is the human world. The cliffhanger on the last page of Spells makes you just sit there and say, what what what? What is going to happen next???
Can't wait for the next book.

"it'll take months, Tamani, This is a huge endeavor you're undertaking" - I know Tamani replied. You ready for this? Shar asked? "Yeah," Tamani said, a grin spreading across his face. " Oh, Yeah."
