Our first ever guest review!!
Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide
eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering
petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and
danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.
one is a fairy tale, I just love fairy tales. They are all about chiseled, fair
prince charming, evil villains and very helpless princesses. But this book has
one thing which is so different, that it makes it stand out from all those
fairy tales lying in my bookshelf, this book paints an entirely different image
of fairies. Read on and you will find out.
when my friend told me she had a love story which had fairies in it, I was
psyched. She bought it to school the next day. I started reading it and that
was it.... I couldn't put the book down.
This story is about a girl (Ok-ok I know every book has
one but she is somewhat different) Laurel who is a faerie (yes I know the
spelling is wrong) a new type of being as she is also a plant. (Ok I know what
you are thinking that I am insane and how can fairy's be made out of plants but
believe me its true) Anyways she is from Avalon, a kingdom which is full of
faerie beings and is ruled by winter faeries. There are four types of faeire's:
1) The winter faeries who are the most powerful ones in
the bunch and they are on top of the hierarchy system
2) The autumn faeries who are also known as mixers and
they make portions for the rest of them. These portions are to cure the sick or
to overcome the trolls-their natural enemies.
3) The summer faeries like... no love doing fireworks,
they are a type who use their powers to entertain the Fae's (plural of
4) And the spring faeries. Most of them are guardians and
the others are the helpers.
The most important thing about these faeries are that
their jobs can’t be imitated by other season Fae's like an autumn faerie's work
cannot be done by a summer faerie or a human (believe me David tried....oops
silly me, I forgot to mention whose David, but don’t worry as always I will be
there to save the day). And for shopaholic’s like me, let me tell you that
shopping at fairs or markets of Avalon is completely and utterly FREE! CAN YOU
So I should save the day and tell you about David.
Okay so Laurel was like a hard-hit (not exactly like one
but somewhat similar to it) She was planted in the human world while she was a
sapling (or a baby. But folks let’s not forget that she is a plant) and she was
also given a memory portion to forget all about Avalon. She meets David in a
school when her family moves into a different city.
Let’s fast forward it people... there is also another
hero in this book. His name is Tamani and he is a fellow Fae just like our
heroine Laurel.[are you getting my gist here?! ;) ]. So when Laurel starts
liking-oh no! I think we past that stage after the first five chapters of the
book-loving David, Tamani is given the signal to enter Laurels life. Who is
Laurel going to choose finally.... I kept on wondering but you don’t come to
know this in this part, there are 3 more parts left to it and the last part
will tell you all about Laurels decision!!!!
So people in team David (he is sooo cute) please raise
your hands and all the Tamani fans (including me) (god he is gorgeous) please
No story goes smoothly for long; there is always a stone
in its path, what say you people?! Well this story has one too but over here
it’s a troll who won’t stop at anything to take the land Laurel's family owns
because it has the gate to Avalon. He can go to any lengths so people be aware
not to get on the bad side of this or any other troll.
This is all the major things this story is about and if
you wanted the story to keep surprising you with all its suspense you should
have thought about it before reading this review.... cause I can never stomach
anything. I have to blurt it out. Nevertheless there are some parts I forgot to
mention so you can read and find it out.
Lots of love and Nutella,
Sara Paxton as Laurel, Alex Pettyfer as Tamani, Gregg Sulkin as David, Gérard Depardieu as Barnes, James Marsden as Shar and Christina Hendricks as Chelsea
