Spotlight Series: Wings

Critically acclaimed, internationally best-selling author Aprilynne Pike has been spinning tales since she was a child with a hyper-active imagination. At the age of twenty she received her BA in Creative Writing from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. When not writing, Aprilynne can usually be found out running; she also enjoys singing, acting, reading, and working with pregnant moms as a childbirth educator and doula. Aprilynne lives in Arizona with her husband and four kids; she is enjoying the sunshine.

Wings was the first YA faerie book I truly loved. Aprilynne Pike has perfected the unique origin of the creature that makes there faeries unlike any other you've read about in the past. The Wings series is an exciting quartet of books that will take you on a fantastic ride and eventually give you the closure you desire.

Important Characters to Know
Laurel - You're average teenage girl who learns she's not only a faerie, but an important one at that.

Tamani - Laurel's personal guard. Faerie. Has loved her since childhood.

David - Laurel's human boyfriend.
