"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." -Wings, by Aprilynnepike Pike
I am giving this one a 4 out of 5 stars for the simple reason alone: I would have NEVER let my girlfriend run off to possibly die with some beautiful man while waiting in the car. However, that is my only critique, and really it's just a personal preference. I've got #tigerblood. #winning.
I received this book on my new iPad 2, and it was the first ebook I ever read. So let me first say to the publishers who thought giving away this book for free was a good idea because it really was. I have been torn for years about the subject of ebooks as there is simply nothing like having a real paper book in your hand. However, it was beyond nice to even read it in the dark while curled up next to my daughter while waiting to fall asleep.
I will not only buy this book in copy for my library, but I now will be purchasing the next two for my IPad 2 as well as hard cover.
You instantly fall in love with Laurel, and David simply warms your heart. I have a thing for little science geeks anyway, and other then the above cited critique David is adorable.
Pike really has a nice little spin on the Modern Fairy Tales, and I can't wait to dig into her world even further.
Go get this book. It's still available for FREE at Amazon.com among other places.
