Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-After discovering that Yuki is a Winter Faerie, Tamani, Laurel, Chelsea, David, and Shar must figure out what she and Klea have planned for Avalon. By holding Yuki hostage, they learn that Klea knows where the Gate is located and that she plans to enter Avalon with an army of trolls. The only option is to enter before she does and to prepare Avalon for the troll army. The costs to defend Avalon will be high and lives will be lost, relationships damaged, and heroes made as David and Chelsea become the first humans to enter Avalon since Arthur. Armed with Excalibur, David may lose himself in the process and Laurel will have to think like Klea in order to save the day. Aprilynne Pike's action-packed, fast-paced conclusion (HarperTeen, 2012) to the "Wings" series takes place over the course of a single day. Her characters, particularly David, are complex and well-developed. Mandy Siegfried's narration is excellent and her tone is perfect for the story. The bittersweet but appropriate conclusion will satisfy most listeners. Perfect for fans of the series and those who enjoy paranormal romance.-Sarah Flood, Breckinridge County Public Library, Hardinsburg, KY α(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"A strong closing chapter..." (Kirkus)

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)

“Pike’s 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))

“The action begins fast and furious and never really stops.” (Booklist)

It has all come down to one final battle. A battle that will test everyone's ability to remain strong against an enemy who is seemingly unstoppable.

One last chance to stand together to protect all of Avalon from the wrath of an enemy who knows no mercy. An enemy who will stop at nothing to win. And who will destroy everything and everyone who gets in their way.

As Laurel, Tamani, David and Chelsea prepare for the fight of their lives, they will discover an unlikely hero in their midst. Someone brave enough to take up arms and lead the charge. Someone who is willing to pay whatever price is required in order to defend Avalon against the onslaught of enemy forces. Someone who may not come through the battle unscathed.

Ill-prepared, up against the greatest threat Avalon ever faced and with the odds stacked against them, everyone will have to fight. Everyone will be in danger. And not everyone will survive.

***

Destined is the thrilling, action-packed, nail-biting and bittersweet conclusion to Aprilynne Pike's Wings series. This gripping and tension-filled story will keep readers on edge as they follow Laurel on one final adventure through Avalon that will put her and her friends in more danger than they've ever been in before.

With a whirlwind pace, deadly threats at every turn, an intense battle whose outcome will determine Avalon's fate and a choice that will break someone's heart, this story will captivate, tease, torment, surprise and delight. And with each twist, the suspense will continue to build, all leading up to the stunning and dramatic series conclusion.

Not missing a beat, Destined picks up where Illusions left off and drops readers right into the heart of the action.

First Impressions: The ending of the last book in this series, Illusions, killed me. Killed me! Talk about a major cliffhanger! AND this new book took FOREVER to come out at least that is the way it felt. I adore this series; it's one of my favorites, so I was so excited when I received this book for review. It's the final book in the series and I'll just say now that it was worth the wait! I will try to keep my review spoiler free so that any fans won't try to come and cut my fingers off for giving away major plot points. If you haven't read the first three books, you need to run out an get them as soon as possible, especially if you are a faerie lover like me!

Characters & Plot: Oh, the plot twists! Aprilynne Pike definitely knows how to create fabulous plot twists that you don't see coming until they are in your face and jumping off of the page. This book was fast paced in the beginning, slowed down through the middle a bit, and picked up speed again towards the grand finale.

All of the loose ends were tied up nicely in this book, which I believe is why the middle section of this book felt a little lengthy and descriptive. I had to go back through and reread certain parts so I could completely follow what was being told. Geez, this is a HARD review to write because if I say anything, I practically give the whole book away! I may just have to come back and edit my review closer to the release date so I can give away something!

I know the burning question everyone wants to know: Who did Laurel choose to be with? I can't tell you! My lips are sealing, but it is so hard keeping it a secret. I won't even tell my best friend who is also a huge fan of this series, but I gladly passed along my copy to her so she could read it and find out for herself.

Format: Hardcover
Wow, we have been on quite a journey with Laurel and starting the last book was a bittersweet experience for me. I have to admit that I was not blown away with the last book, Illusions. I enjoyed it, but it did not love it. In the dedication of Destined Aprilynne talks about wanting to finish strong and thankfully that is exactly what she did. This final installment is by far my favorite in the series and I was so happy Aprilynne was able to finish out on a high note.

The ending of Illusions left us with quite a cliffhanger. We pick up with Laruel, Tamani, Chelsea and David right where we left them, guarding Yuki. We discovered that Yuki is a winter faerie working with Klea. Their end goal is the destruction of Avalon. Since the pair is looking to take over Avalon a battle that lasts for almost the entirety of the book ensues, making it nearly impossible to walk away from this story. So many lives are lost, many of them being characters we have come to love. It was tough to watch Laruel lose people she cares about, but unfortunately when there is a war lives are lost. Aprilynne does do a nice job of setting the scene for the battles and they were exciting to read. They take place all over Avalon and I was thrilled to see more of this mystical world, even if it was under such tragic circumstances. Avalon fascinates me and I always enjoy the story taking us there to explore it.

The love triangle is still going strong in Destined, but it becomes very clear as the book progresses that Laurel has made her decision. I cannot say whether I was happy or not about it, because I have been very vocal about being team Tamani, so any opinion I give on that will be a giveaway.
