In the second book of this four-part series, Spells takes place a few months after where Wings left off. Once again, Aprilynne Pike encourages you to enter a world of faeries with that same writing style that's so easy to get into.
After learning in the first novel that Laurel was a faerie and that she had an important role in protecting the faerie world from trolls, Laurel thought she might be able to return to a somewhat normal life in the human world with her human boyfriend, David. But no, she can't. Once again, Laurel is drawn into the faerie world after she's summoned to study at the Academy of Avalon to learn the skills of a Fall faerie and to better protect her family (and the rest of Avalon for that matter).
There's a lot of weight on her shoulders, but there's still time for some play too, especially when faerie sentry Tamani is there to help show her around. Laurel comes to learn more about her birthplace and the lifestyles of faeries, but she also comes to realize her growing feelings for Tamani- feelings that might have already been there but she had chosen to ignore because she had David.
Two boys from two different worlds- Laurel is caught in between. But how can she choose between them? There's more at stake than Laurel's love life though- the threat of incoming trolls who have been biding their time is looming.
Spells was just as intriguing as the first novel, and if you enjoyed the first one, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one too.
