Spells by Aprilynne Pike


First Line: Laurel stood in front of the cabin, scanning the tree line, her throat constricting in a rush of nerves.

It's been a year since Laurel found out she was a faerie.  She has returned to Avalon for a summer of training, the first she can remember.  She feels devastatingly behind her classmates, but is continually being reassured that all things considering she is catching on faster than anyone could  have hoped.  Her love triangle only intensifies as she straddles the fence between her human life and her faerie life.  She unintentionally, but still selfishly strings both David and Tamani along.  Most of her relationships are strained by now - especially the one between her and her mom.  Laurel feels ignored and unloved by her once thoughtful and caring mother.  Her mother feels unneeded and nervous, direct result of finding out the heritage of her adopted daughter.  The threat of trolls is a constant  cloud over Laurels life and once they make their appearance it brings with it even more stress.  
This action packed, young adult, fantasy thriller ends like it started, with lots of questions and most definitely at the edge of a cliff.
