Destined delivers all the romance and action that fans expect as it brings Aprilynne Pikes Wings series to a deeply satisfying conclusion.
Laurel used to think she was an ordinary girl from Crescent City, California. She never would have believed she was truly a faerie from a realm called Avalon.
Now Laurel must risk her life to save Avalon from destruction by Yuki—a rare and powerful Winter faerie—and troll-hunter Klea. But Laurel wont have to fight alone; David and Tamani, two boys she loves in different ways, will be by her side, along with her best friend, Chelsea.
Readers of the Need and Graceling series will want to follow Laurels story from its beginning in Wings to its heart-stopping end in Destined.
PRAISE FOR DESTINED:“The greatest part: the WINGS series reaches the perfect ending. The worst part: it has to end!” Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series
“The action begins fast and furious and never really stops.” Booklist
“Pikes clever and innovative way of reinventing fairy tales and myths to make them her own is wonderful. The story is rich in vivid details, action, adventure, and romance.” Romantic Times (Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars)
“In this last installment of the Wings series, destinies and betrayals are unearthed at breathtaking speed. The series is action-packed, and the final chapters of the story are no exception. A thrilling page-turner, many readers will read the book cover-to-cover, barely daring to breath.” Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)
Tamani looked at her gravely, and reached up to tuck her hair behind her ear.
He hesitated for an instant, then his hands found the sides of her face, pulling her to him. He didn't kiss her, just held her face close to his, their foreheads resting together, their noses almost touching.
She hated how much it felt like good-bye.
Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful—and deadly—of all, and Klea plans to use her to help conquer and destroy Avalon. But Klea's reach extends far beyond one wild Winter faerie. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares to face what may be Avalon's final days, in the stunning conclusion to the Wings series.
