Review: Destined by Aprilynne Pike

Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful—and deadly—of all, and she is working with Klea to conquer and destroy Avalon. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares for a fight she never thought she would have to face.
Filled with heart-pounding action, sweeping romance, and higher stakes at every turn, Destined is the series conclusion that readers have been clamoring for—with a twist that will leave them breathless.

Cover Art:  Gorgeous cover, probably my favourite due to the beautiful blue colour.

Review: 

[Book 4  in the Wings Series]

The final book in the series was a great one. I’m glad it ended on such a strong note. This fourth and final book is filled with action from cover to cover. The battle travels across the worlds and into Avalon where there are surprises, heart-wrenching moments, and page-turner after page-turner.

I’m happy to say I have no real complaints about this book and how it ended. The action scenes and thoughtfulness were well developed and easily conveyed. The writing was simple, but it was easy to imagine Pike’s words come alive. As for the romance, yes, Laurel eventually chooses. The romantic scenes were interspersed between all the action and war, which was a good change in my opinion [the last two books being romance-heavy]. But, to contradict myself, I had hoped for a little more character-character interaction.

At the end of the book, there is an epilogue of sorts. A letter from one of the characters to another. So sad. That is all I’ll say.

The book [and series] ends on a good note. Definitely will recommend this series for those who love paranormal-romance, action, and beautiful world building. All four books are fun, fast reads.
