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.
