Description


"I can't 'steal' you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you'll ask," Tamani said.

"And if I don't?" Laurel said, her voice barely above a whisper.

"Then I guess I'll be waiting forever."

Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn her back on her human life—and especially her boyfriend, David—to return to the faerie world. But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel can no longer deny her feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani. She is forced to make a choice—a choice that could break her heart.

Praise for Spells…


“Spells is brilliant and lovely. Aprilynne Pike’s talent just continues to bloom and I am almost afraid to see how awesome her next book will be.”
-Carrie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Captivate and Need

“Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers.”
-Booklist (starred review)

“Rich with faerie mythology, this book will leave readers clamoring for the next installment.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

NARRATOR: It’s the March to Victory! Dateline: Hollywood. As our nation throws itself into our national defense everyone is eager to participate! Now five of the silver screen's biggest stars behind the camera have answered the call. Film directors John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, George Stevens and John Huston all accept commissions in the Armed Forces. With such films as "The Battle of Midway", the "Why We Fight" series, and "Memphis Belle", these filmmakers go forth to document this global war. From places like the Pacific islands, Omaha Beach and Dachau their experiences will no doubt forever change how they see duty, sacrifice, cruelty, and the art of the motion picture. In the hands of superb journalist and storyteller Mark Harris these epic tales are woven together with enough grace and skill to rival the filmmakers he profiles. This has been The March to Victory!
