"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."
Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.
But just as life is returning to normal, Laurel discovers that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.
This is the third installment of Aprilynne Pike's Wings Series.

My take on the book: Wow. This book once again was really good. Illusions by Aprilynne Pike has us jumping from Tamani to Laurel, in terms of who the third person narrator is, which is something that I adore. I think that the book wouldn’t have been good without the little sections of Tamani being the focus that the book wouldn’t have been as good. From the very beginning to the end of the book had me wanting more and more.

Laurel is still stuck between wanting to be in a romantic relationship with either David or Tamani. Some people might like the whole love triangle thing but for me I’m just a little bit worried about which scorned lover would turn on Laurel if they were influenced enough from the other side. This book seemed like it was filler which is a good thing since we learned more about Tamani, David, and mostly everyone in this book. We even got to meet and learn more (SPOILER!!) about a new faerie named Yuki (END SPOILER!!). We also learn a lot about her and a little bit more about this troll hunter, that we met in the last book, by the name of Klea. We all know that I hate filler books but this filler books, but I feel this one is a necessary for this series.

I am going to be giving Illusions by Aprilynne Pike a five stars rating because it was soo good. When I wasn’t reading I was worrying about what Laurel was getting herself into or if Tamani and David would stop trying to be jerks around each other and what type of faerie is Yuki?! All really good questions that got answered in the book, which gave me more questions. That cliffhanger Aprilynne Pike had for us was the worst one ever. Well not the worse one but it sucks to know that I won’t be able to read Destined by Aprilynne Pike for a while. But, wow I can’t wait to read it, when I am able to get my hands on that book. I really want to know what happens for Laurel and her friends. and even more about Yuki.

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
