Illusions (Wings #3) by Aprilynne Pike
My Rating: 4/5 cups of coffee
“But love is something that has to be as selfish as it is unselfish. You can’t make yourself love someone because you feel like you should. Just wanting to love someone isn’t enough.”
This was the third book of the Wings series. I think this book is not so good like the first 2 books. I mean this book was great but it’s lacking of excitement and adventures. Maybe I just expect more from this book but I got disappointed, not really but maybe a little. The good thing about this book is the Love Triangle of Laurel, Tamani and David and that was exciting. I really can’t guess who will be Laurel’s choice, is it Tamani or David? But she loves them both but differently. I like David despite of his bad boy image when it comes to Tamani and I like Tamani more because he’s very protective to Laurel and he really loves Laurel whatever happens.
I get annoyed to Chelsea in this book because she’s still in love with David. Is that what you called a friend? Anyway good thing Laurel understands and she didn’t think of Chelsea differently because of what she’s going to do after the winter dance, which is breaking up with Ryan because David is sad. Ugh! And Oh oh! Tamani got an iPhone. Lololololol! That’s what I like about this book, faeries using iPhone. Oh, I forgot Yuki, the shy type unordinary girl and not to mention that she is a Winter Faerie. Oh my golly gushy gushy gosh!
Well anyway at the end it was full of surprises and a damn cliff-hanger, so damn cliff-hanger. Overall, I like it but not like the first 2 books, just for the sake of the series. But I’m still in love with the characters and the story, this book just has it flaws but its fine, I’m still reading the last book, Destined. I’m just waiting for the paperback edition. I’m not into hardcovers. Lol~

“I can’t just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can’t ‘steal’ you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you’ll ask.”
“And if I don’t?” Laurel said, her voice barley above a whisper.
“Then I guess I’ll wait forever.”
This book made me miss my boyfriend. David is such a sweet boyfriend and Tamani was a great protector. I love these two fictional characters! I’m inlove again, I guess.
But sometimes it makes me wonder if David has feelings with Chelsea because he cared a lot when Chelsea was kidnapped. Maybe they’re just really a good friend. It makes me think because Chelsea had a huge crush on David before Lauren arrived in Crescent City.
Well, the book has a great ending. Another cliff hanger because there is a sneak peek of Illusions at the end of the book. And I read it that Tamani is in their school. Oh God! I can’t wait to read the 3rd book. But I haven’t got a copy yet but soon. Really really soon.
Overall, I’d enjoyed the book. Especially the love triangle between David, Lauren and Tamani. But sometimes I can’t absorb all the faerie thing. I get confused sometimes. Anyway, its for the sake of Lauren being a faerie. I hope she did not forget Tamani after all he has done to her over the years. I love this book so much.

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
This is the first book I’ve read about faeries. Well, I think it was okay to change my imagination from vampires, science, war, death and etc. So I read this even though it has a lot of bad reviews.
Well the story went so well, I love the way Laurel was trapped with two guys David and Tamani, one human and one faery. I love LOVE TRIANGLES! But I wanted to know how Laurel end up in the human world, well Tamani talks about it but it’s no enough. The author should include it but maybe she will, in the other books. I hope.
Overall, the story is great. Will read the second book ”SPELLS”.
