Review: Illusions by Aprilynne Pike

Illusions by Aprilynne Pike

 "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.

First Line: The halls of Del Norte High buzzed with first-day-school chaos as Laurel wedged herself through a crowd of sophomores and spotted David's broad shoulders.

Review:I freakin love love love Tamani he is such an amazing character!...Now that I got that out of the way on to the actual review... :)

I really enjoyed Illusions mainly because there was way more of Tamani  then the previous two books and then of course we get to see his pov in things also. In this one Laurel isn't really able to brush him aside like she was able to do in the first two books because in Illusions the guy takes up the role of her guardian and is pretty much wherever she is always protecting her. 

The book had some plot development but nothing too exciting happened until maybe the last few chapters of the book.  We are introduced to a new character Yuki who starts attending Laurels school, nothing to alarming except when you add in the fact that she is under Klea's care. Illusions was more so romance based and i'm not even going to lie when I say I loved every minute of it. I love seeing Laurel and Tamani together and it was fun seeing her discover that maybe her feelings for Tamani are stronger then she realized.  I even enjoyed seeing her getting jealous over Tamani flirting with Yuki (although he had alterior motives, the guy clearly only has eyes for Laurel).

Also of course there was David, I don't know why I just don't care for his character at all. He is a good guy, very caring and loyal to Laurel but dammit he is not Tamani ...end of story. For some reason I really see him better off with Chelsea.

The book also ends with a huge cliffhanger although to me it was just so abrupt if that makes any sense. Anyways i'm glad I waited for the series to come out fully before diving into it because I wouldn't have had the patience to sit around and wait for the final book. Overall a great read and if you haven't picked up the series I highly recommend it.
