Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Aprilynne Pike’s Wings is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds.” Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight Saga
“Pike weaves an enthralling story of danger and love. This reinterpretation of the faerie story is one that will captivate readers with its plausibility and imagination.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Mandy Siegfried faithfully conveys Laurel’s fear of being different and her disbelief of her magical identity…Siegfried’s credible teen voices will draw in young listeners…The tense pacing of Laurel and David’s death-defying escape from thug trolls is especially delicious to hear.” AudioFile
“A blend of sweetness and surprise.” Booklist
“Replete with budding romance, teen heroics, a good smattering of evil individuals, and an ending that serves up a ready sequel, this novel nonetheless provides an unusual approach to middle level fantasy through its startlingly creative premise…Inventive and unexpected plot twists carry the book.” VOYA
“Has a nice mix of danger and romance, the world of magic and the world of high school, with well-developed characters and a quick-moving plot.” School Library Journal
“Silk narration…delicious escapism.” Kirkus Reviews
