Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautifultoo 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.
Aprilynne Pike has been spinning faerie stories since she was a child with a hyperactive imagination. She completed her BA in creative writing at the age of twenty at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. Aprilynne lives with her husband and children in Arizona.
“Aprilynne Pike’s WINGS is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds.”
-Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga
“In the current crop of supernatural romances, this one stands out. Silky narration...delicious escapism.”
“The book has a nice mix of danger and romance, with well-developed characters and a quick-moving plot.”
-School Library Journal
