Alright, alright, alright, finally a review!! Cue all the screaming and excitement since it has been a LONG time since I’ve brought myself to actually sit down and do this because they’ve been piling up for ages. Also, since these are the third and fourth books in the Wings series I’m not going to have a description so I don’t have a chance to accidentally give anything away to those of you who have not read the series yet. For those who don’t know what this series is about, it’s a mythological series about fairies. Now this isn’t your typical fairy that you’ve read about, these fairies are basically plants that look like humans. I know. crazy stuff, but if that’s your genre than go for it.

Now for the review.  As usual, this is just basically going to be a kind of overview of what I thought without giving much of anything away so you have a chance to enjoy it yourself if you find it interesting so you can be surprised by everything that happens.

Laurel…just…no. She still seems to just annoy me in the series, she just seems really selfish at times and doesn’t ever have really selfless moments that I was hoping that she as a character would show as she grew throughout the series. She was almost the biggest disappointment in the series was her lack of growth. There’s just not much more for me to really say about her that doesn’t involve me ranting a bit so I’m just going to move on to Tamani. Gah! Tamani is still my favorite character in this series, he’s just funny, witty, and is really selfless when it comes to Laurel. Just…

I could talk about Tamani for days, and I wouldn’t mind doing that, so go read to find out more so I’m not tempted to do just that. For the story line I feel that it was just kind of blah; it moved along but it was just kind of bumping along a straight path that was at times predictable and didn’t have super exciting moments that I was really hoping for. It just made me sad in the end because I felt like it was just a settled, bland, and really just a unremarkable ending that just didn’t do for what I had hoped it would.

Just go give the series a chance and see if it’s a better fit for you than it was for me, and if not just do it for the glory of Tamani.
