Illusions Book 3 in the Wings Series by Aprilynne Pike

I know its been A LONG TIME since I read Wings (book 1) and Spells (book 2) - but I grabbed this while at the university waiting for my ride. Not a bad read and I was able to finally jump back into it, I had forgotten the entire story line lol.

There's a love triangle - Laurel (a faerie) David (a human) and Tamani (another faerie from Avalon) - Laurel has to choose 1 or the other, or neither for her own saniti and theirs.

The author introduces another character Yuki - Japanese exchange student - well we all know she's not, we know she's a faerie - but we don't know if she's innocent or evil, a spring or winter faerie. Tamani takes the time to get to know her and track her to try and find out... you wait til the end of the book to get any idea AND UMM I'm PISSED how it stopped... seriously... I kept going back and trying to see if I missed a page or two lol. Just smacks you in the face and it ends.

Good book though. Now that I'm back into it, can't wait for the next one! Destined is due out 4/28/12

Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life is returning to normal, Laurel discovers that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.

Soul Thief - Demon Trappers Daughter Series

Soul Thief is the second in the series by Jana Oliver. 

Seventeen-year-old Riley has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. As if that’s not enough, there's Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad. With all the hassles, Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether.

But as Atlanta’s demon count increases, the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, and pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever…
My Review:
Riley is in a love triangle (sorta) when we leave the first book. In this one she looses one and really falls for another. Leaving the third totally twisting in the end (but we all know we want them together!!). I was really surprised at Ori - the level the author took it too with their relationship. WOW - shows you what men can really be like.

Not a lot of killing per say in this book - more of the story line laying out and getting all the facts and other characters introduced. From the witches, necromancers and the auction... I'd be a little twisted up with emotions and that's what gets Riley going in this book.

I held on and didn't let go til it was over and I want the next book :)

Take a peek at Amber in one of their dresses. This one is from their Short Prom Dresses selection.

 LOL don't mind the miss matched socks, she was so eager to try it on. We even got a smile!

I'm impressed, not easily done with a prom dress. We've gone to Debs, Department stores and so on. The zippers break, the sequins falls off... they are SEE THROUGH!! OMG I won't go on. has high quality items! There is almost 6 layers under that skirt!! Tons of tulle that has a finished edge, a colored skirt, a white skirt... She never once complained that it itched. LOL The stitching is great... did I mention her dress from the other night has already started to tear! Not this one, its got tons of comfort lining and its sewn beautifully.
The straps to hold the dress up are even nice lol.

Ok enough about me going on and on about the dress... follow the links and check out the dresses!!

Their selection of prom dresses are fabulous... Love them.
Amber favorite is the High Low Dress with the sweetheart neckline
