I can't just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can't 'steal' you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you'll ask, Tamani said.

And if I don't? Laurel said, her voice barely above a whisper.

Then I guess I'll be waiting forever.

Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn her back on her human life--and especially her boyfriend, David--to return to the faerie world.

But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable. She is forced to make a choice--a choice that could break her heart.

Our customer reviews

Spells was just as engrossing and lovely as the first book. I adore this take on fairy mythology. It's enchanting, unique and filled with the kind of things that I love to day dream about - fairies, flowers, castles, and houses made of trees. The pace that Aprilynne reveals the mythology is perfect. Your immediate questions are answered, but then you realize you now have ten more! Not only that, but Laurel is discovering everything with you. It's so easy to relate to her feelings of being an outsider and not truly belonging. I found it so poignant and beautiful. Even though I was reading this for the second time, I couldn't put this book down until I got to the end. It just captivates me. The chemistry between Tamani and Laurel is amazing. I mean, there's a love triangle and this other guy, David, but seriously. Tamani is so heart-breaking, lovable, and irresistable. I'm addicted to this series.show more
