The book itself was a good read and any Wings fan will like it, however the uneventful moments in the book did make it a little bit harder to get through.

Synopsis

"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."

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 returns to normal, Laurel realizes 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.

Good

Fans will revel in the idealized characterizations, breathless abstinence romance, lurking danger and newly explicit Arthurian parallels.

I was excited to find out what happens in ILLUSIONS and after the last page I felt as if I didn't have any answers.

The love triangle aspect of this series was existent in both of the previous books, but this aspect is in full swing in this book.

Essentially this book is made up of character interaction, stuff that wouldn’t be as entertaining to sort out during Book Four, which I anticipate to be at least mostly action and plot movement.

Taylor has only grown stronger as an author, and her writing has continued to mature and develop.
