Destined by Aprilynne Pike

Destined by Aprilynne Pike
2012, HarperTeen
Series: Book 4 of Wings

Synopsis: Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful—and deadly—of all, and Klea plans to use her to help conquer and destroy Avalon. But Klea's reach extends far beyond one wild Winter faerie. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares to face what may be Avalon's final days, in the stunning conclusion to the Wings series.

Why read: Received for review

What impressed me: I loved the sheer magnitude of Destined. The book wraps things up completely, and does so on a grandiose scale without dragging anything out. The book is heavy on the action, everyone's abilities come into play and we get to experience an all out war in Avalon.

What disappointed me: I didn't love the resolution to the love triangle (love square?) that was Laurel, Tamani, David and Chelsea. It was realistic, yet lacked the emotional fulfillment readers will be looking for at this stage in the series.

Recommended: Definitely. If you've enjoyed the Wings saga so far, you have to see how it all ends.
