Pressestimmen

“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))

Das Cover

Das Cover ist richtig toll. Mir gefiel schon das zu Band I so richtig gut. Erneut haben wir das Blumenmotiv im Zentrum. Es ist diesmal eine rote Blüte, deren Blätter zu Boden fallen. Der Hintergrund ist in einem silbrigen Grün gehalten und passt wirklich hervorragend zu der roten Blüte, die durch den extremen Farbtupfer gleich ins Auge sticht.
Für mich eine gelungene Gestaltung.

Kurze Inhaltsbeschreibung
[Spoiler für Band I]

Laurel weiß nun, das sie eine Herbstfee ist. Sie ist eine Zeit in Avalon. Dort geht sie zur Schule und muss lernen, was andere Herbstfeen ihres Alters bereits können. Sie lernt Zauber und natürlich alles über ihre Magie. Dies geschieht vor allem zu ihrem Schutz. Denn auch wenn sie glauben das Barnes tot ist, machen die Trolle immer noch Jagd auf Laurel. Sie werden versuchen durch sie nach Avalon zu kommen. Notfalls auch mit fiesen Tricks, denn da sind ja noch Laurels Freunde und Familie.

Schreibstil und Storyverlauf

Die Geschichte beginnt mit dem Teil, der in Avalon spielt. Laurel ist dort, um zu lernen. Als Leser erfährt man in diesem Teil einiges über die magische Welt der Feen, Laurels früheres Leben und das, dass sie zurücklässt, wenn sie sich entscheidet zurück in die Menschenwelt zu gehen. Außerdem steht ihre Freundschaft zu Tamani im Vordergrund, die natürlich nicht nur Freundschaft ist. Ganz sicher von seiner Seite aus, aber auch Laurel ist hin- und hergerissen.

Format: Taschenbuch
Ich habe mir den zweiten Teil der Serie gekauft, weil mir der erste Teil Wings wirklich gut gefallen hat. Leider fand ich Spells sehr enttäuschend. Ich musste mich regelrecht durchquälen. Es passiert so gut wie gar nichts in dem Buch, außer dass sowohl David als auch Laurel ständig unter Anspannung stehen aus Angst das Barnes wieder kommt. Dazu kommt der ewigliche Konflikt von Laurel sich zwischen David und Tamani entscheiden zu müssen. Das ständige wie toll und graziös die Elfen doch sind und das im Elfenland alles Friede, Freude, Eierkuchen ist und sogar Shakespeare sich seine Inspirationen von den Elfen geholt hat, finde ich einfach nur nervig. Auch das Laurel sich einfach nicht an die Gepflogenheiten der Elfen halten will und Tamani andauernd in für ihn peinliche Situationen führt, finde ich nicht schön gemacht.
Erst auf den letzten Seiten wurde ich mal von der Spannung gefesselt, aber das war auch dermaßen schnell vorbei, dass es nicht einmal das wieder raus gerissen hat. Ich bin schwer am überlegen mir den dritten Teil überhaupt zu kaufen, wenn er so schlecht ist wie der zweite, Nein danke!

Ich habe das erste Buch auf deutsch gelesen und fand's klasse. Da es den zweiten Band auf deutsch nicht gibt, hab ich ihn mir auf englisch bestellt. Und bin begeistert! Alles macht irgendwie mehr Sinn... Tolle Story, gut geschrieben... erinnert nur ziemlich sehr an die Twilight-Saga. Ich freu mich schon auf den dritten Band(natürlich in englisch ;).

Aprilynne Pike--I have faith in you that you'll eventually give us the conclusion we're all cheering for! 23. Juni 2010
Von Sunny Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was looking for a quick, escapist read a few weeks ago and picked up "Wings." I had heard great things about it, and while it wasn't quite as amazing as everyone had said, it was enjoyable. I was intrigued enough by the character Tamani to want to find out more.

"Spells" was a decent read. I debated between 3 and 4 stars, and decided on 4 stars because of Tamani. Girls, say it with me: "TEAM TAMANI ALL THE WAY." "Spells" wore a little thin in a few parts, and here's why: Laurel cries. A lot. Laurel is needy. A lot. Laurel and David make out. A lot. Honestly, it felt like every few pages Laurel and David were making out, and it got pretty nauseating after awhile. I liked David just fine after reading "Wings," but after "Spells," I don't know how anyone could be Team David. All of the Laurel/David chemistry from "Wings" vanished, so every time they spewed lovey words and kissed, it felt really strange and forced. I like a good romance as much as the next girl, but I was SO tired of the make out sessions by the end of the book. I have hope that making David annoying in this book is all part of a big plan to eventually bring Laurel and Tamani together. I don't know how ANYONE could be cheering for David at this point.

And poor Tamani. Laurel's treatment of him was completely appalling. She toyed with him and strung him along to the point where I really couldn't stand her by the end. Let's hope Laurel was acting like this so we can see the process of her maturing and growing as a character in later books. Go Shar for finally putting Laurel in her place regarding her deplorable treatment of Tamani. Poor Tamani seemed a little defeated for a lot of the book, as he wasn't quite as confident and flirtatious as he is in "Wings." Pining for Laurel is just sucking the soul out of his character. Let's hope he comes back as his charismatic, charming self in Book 3 because I'm weary of selfish Laurel using him and bringing him down!

And the conclusion? Anyone who's read the book knows what I'm talking about. I kind of felt like how I did when I read "Little Women" for the first time and literally threw the book against the wall when Jo refused Laurie. At least there will be two more books for Laurel to mature and make the right choice.

I have faith in you, Aprilynne Pike, that you'll eventually give us readers the conclusion we're all cheering for. I understand that there are two books after this one so you can't exactly resolve the love triangle just yet. All I'm asking is that eventually Laurel will grow up and be with Tamani, and please give us at least one book where she and Tamani are happily together (conflict is okay...just let them face it together). Don't pull a Jane Austen (my favorite author) and make me read 400 pages waiting for the two character to get together, and then I only get to relish five pages where they're finally happy.

Ready for Illusions 3. Februar 2011
Von Randa Leonard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
It took me all of one day to read Aprilynne Pike's "Spells." I couldn't seem to put it down. However, it was not entirely because it was a great read. Let me start by saying that I did enjoy the book. Again, Pike has done a great job at developing her characters, and creating a plotline that was irresistible. The story flowed in such a way that finding a good stopping point in which to take care of matters outside the book never really presented itself.

What I found to be less that enjoyable was the main character's inability to commit to one love. As a reader, I tend to really get into my books; especially if they are as good as this one. Laurel, the heroine of the story, is torn between her two potential lovers throughout the book. What I found very conflicting storywise, was Laurel's entire love situation. As a character, she seemed to be drawn instinctively to her fellow faerie, Tamani, and he to her. The words and actions that Pike portrayed in Laurel/Tamani scenes would make the reader believe that Tamani was her real love. Throughout the book, she seemed to be constantly drawn to Tamani on a level that was much stronger than that of her "emotion" (or lack therof) for David. Instead, it felt like she was throwing herself at the human, David, for no real reason. This was a problem throughout the book, and I was not very happy with the way Pike presented Laurel's feelings for the two.

To sum myself up: it was a very good story. What I was upset about was the author's choice of words in certain scenes that seemed to make the characters "love situation" seem a bit off. I ended the book feeling completely frustrated, and essentially hating the main character. So I am impatiently waiting for the next installment "Illusions" to hit the shelves, so that I can hopefully make some sense of the main character's unwillingness to fall for the right guy.

Spells by Aprilynne Pike 18. August 2010
Von A Bookworm's Haven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
We come back to this world at the beginning of the summer where Laurel has been summoned to Avalon to take classes and learn more about her faerie heritage. This education is also supposed to help her learn how to make potions that will help her defend herself against the never-ending parade of trolls that are after her. I was eagerly looking forward to reading about Avalon in this book and hopefully getting to meet more of the fae that live there. Laurel is studying at the academy in Avalon with fellow faerie, who all remember her, but she has no clue who any of them are. I can imagine that it is hard enough to go to school and be the new kid, but to be at that school and have all of them remember you, but you have no recollection of them must be a nightmare. I felt for Laurel because she was trying hard to get to know people, but her friendliness was not always reciprocated. It was also interesting to see how the hierarchy works in Avalon, not all fae are created equal here and it shows in their houses, clothes and possessions. Things are quite different in Avalon and my only disappointment in this book is that we did not get to spend that much time there as I would have liked. I enjoyed hearing about the different types of potions, but I would have liked to see more. Maybe Aprilynne is saving that for one of the next books, I am not sure but I hope we get to go back there and explore more.

I have to say though after reading this I am still team Tamani, sorry David, you are a super nice guy, but there is something about Tamani that makes me think he is a better fit for Laurel. The festival is my favorite time with Larual and Tamani, I loved how they both push each others comfort zones, I will not say anymore than that because I do not want to spoil anything, but it's good. On the down side, throughout the story I almost feel like Laurel is trying to deny who she is, which irks me a little. I get that she is just getting used to being a faerie, but some of David's behaviors in this book are a little strange to me and I think Laural is taking safe way out of both the love triangle situation and her being a faerie.

Overall I really enjoyed this sequel; I liked getting to know some of the fae that lived in Avalon and getting a glimpse into that world. I am looking forward to the next book in this series, even though I don't think there is even a title for the next one yet, anyone know?

'Spells' will leave you breathless! 10. Januar 2012
Von Literary Meanderings - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
*Spoilery if you haven't read Wings!*

Okay, seriously, just pack my suitcases right now. I am moving to Avalon!

Spells begins a number of months after the events of Wings. The time has come for Laurel to depart from her "normal" life to the academy in Avalon, where she will be taught what it means to be a Fall faerie.

Laurel struggles with learning all of the things she missed and has forgotten while "posing" as a human. She isn't sure what to make of just about any of her peers at the academy. Some seemed to have missed her, others seem to wish she wouldn't have come back, while others seem to be indifferent altogether. She also learns that in faerie hierarchy, Spring fae like her friend/more than friend Tamani are treated as no more than servants - and she does not like standing by quietly while it happens.

While Laurel is in Avalon, she and Tamani grow closer than ever and when it's time to go back home to David, she becomes confused. I have to say that I hated Laurel at some parts in this book. She treats Tamani pretty badly and I just wanted to reach my foot into the book and give her a swift kick in the derrière. As far as the love triangle goes, I truly hope she ends up with Tamani. David is nice and all, but his character is boring and doesn't have much development. :(

After trying to balance her two worlds, human and faerie; Laurel fails miserably. After lying to both David and Tamani, she just may end up losing it all.

Then... all the while Laurel is having problems with her love life and trying to hone her Fall abilities, the trolls are causing trouble again. BIG TROUBLE. A couple new plot twists are introduced in this book as well. It should make for an interesting third installment!

- - -

The pace of this book was nice. A little slow to start, but not really a big deal for me. I knew the goods were coming! I feel like I am the minority here, but I enjoyed this book oodles more than Wings! Spells just had so much magic... and being able to follow Laurel and Tamani around Avalon was my favorite part. Pike painted a magnificent picture! Amazing imagery. I honestly could read about Avalon all day. ^-^ For me, this was a wonderful follow-up and I am planning to read Illusions sometime in the next week.

A fun faerie sequel superior to its original 13. Januar 2011
Von Erin K. Simons - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Spells is an anomoly in books, movies -- heck, almost anything. It is a sequel that is actually better than its story of origin.

In this follow up to series starter Wings, Aprilynne Pike sends newly blossomed faerie Laurel away from her home, her parents and her friends in the our world to study magic in Faerie. As an Autumn faerie, Laurel is a mixer -- one of the rare, talented faeries who can combine elements to create magic through potions, tonics and enchanted elixers. With the trolls continuing to threaten both her human and faerie families, Laurel understands that learning this magic is critical to everyone's safety.

This change of venue allows readers to explore Avalon, the faerie realm from which heroine Laurel was sent years ago to live among humans. This is good for two reasons: first, it lets Pike flex her ample imagination with some serious world-building. From the flashy spun-sugar bubbles and bejewelled marketplace of the Summer fae to the simple gourd homes of the spring folk, this faerie world is gorgeous and beautifully described. It's one of the best things about the book. Pike also develops atmosphere through Tamani's anecdotes and lessons, using faerie vernacular and explaining customs to help readers learn about Avalon along with Laurel.

Second, it allows Laurel -- and readers -- a chance to learn more about Tamani. Tamani, Laurel's childhood friend (and eluded childhood love) is a breath of fresh air in the series. He provides a good perspective of the inner workings of faerie society. In addition, he has undeniable chemistry with Laurel and sets up a believable and properly conflicted love triangle -- almost a prerequisite for YA novels of this genre.

Still waiting at home in the human world is sweet, studious David. David is the perfect man-of-science foil for Tamani's man-of-magic. It's a further example of Laurel straddling both worlds, trying to live in both without committing fully to either.

If you liked Wings, Spells is not to be missed. I'll look forward to continuing Laurel's story in Enchantments.
