Laurel is a teenage girl who's been home-schooled and is now starting high school. David takes an immediate liking to her. As she starts high school, she feels very different than her peers and she soon finds out why. She's a faerie; she begins to sprout wings and little by little learns more of her past.
The book started out very slow, and I set it aside for a few weeks. It took a while to get the action going as we learned more about Laurel.
There have been many comparisons made between this book and the Twilight series. Stephenie Meyer did give this book a hearty endorsement saying it was a remarkable debut. There are some similarities. Laurel is the new girl in school. She's kind of aloof and prefers to keep to herself. There is a love triangle between Laurel, David, and the mystical Tamani. I also felt the pacing of the book was a bit similar to that series. The action starts later in the book and leads to a dramatic end, leaving a feeling that there will be a sequel.
I believe this is the first of a trilogy. I have to say I loved the last chapter. It was beautifully written and it made me hungry for the sequel. If you can stay with this book, I think it's worth it, and I am excited for the sequel.
