DESTINED!

So, our first Trick or Treaters were actually . . . our kids! Apparently the gate on our gated community really works! Wow!

And, um, we may have a LOT of candy left over. I wonder what I'll do with all that candy . . . :D

But you all didn't come here to listen to me ramble about how my middle name is Hershey. Without further ado, here is my treat to you!!!


(Clickie for biggie.)

Yay! Swoon! Better than chocolate!!!

Well, it's a close second at least.;)

Happy Halloween!!!

Ciao!

Soline97 said...

Is this the American cover or the UK one? Because we always have a different cover -_- It looks more like the American one, which sucks for everyone in the UK as it's beautiful.

Just finished rereading the series.
Goddess help us all.
Im seriously itching for this amazzing beautiful book DESTINED to come out. I cant wait to find out what happens to Yuki, will she become good?, what happens with Laurel, does she end up with Tamani!, what happens to Yuki's Mom, does she get out of prison, was Yuki her only plan, are they working with Trolls? Ooohhh i cant wait!
Aprilynne your amazing

29ad22a0-02b8-11e1-b03c-000bcdca4d7a said...

Haha. A chapter a month? Thats giving away wat to much. Te way te book left off the first couple pages will tell you more lol. Aprilynne i know your not that foolish, lol. Your amazing i know that the wait will be worth it. Now that im done rereading your series, im now back to rereading the vzmp academy. Anywho i love you. You created a world so amazing, your right next to J.K Rowling , the #1 author who created the best world i know. Avalon and the world of Laurel are right there at #2. I cant express how huge that is and how amazing that is. Your a creative genius, your husband is truly a lucky man and your children will grow to be creative seedlings. Your awesome. Lol ill stop commenting 3 times a day now.

Lol. And my dog's name is Hershey!

Anonymous said...

I just love the cover! Spells was outstanding, Illusions was breathtaking, and now, Ms. Pike, you are just spoiling me! And by the way, does this happen to be **SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ILLUSIONS** Yuki's blossom? Oh, I can't wait! **ANOTHER SPOILER** David and Chealsea should be together since they are humans and Tamani and Laurel are made for each other as young fae! Love your books, Ms.Pike!!!!!!!

Kate Solomay said...

It was interesting to read! I hope all is well celebrated Halloween!)

Dana said...

I have not found what I wanted

29ad22a0-02b8-11e1-b03c-000bcdca4d7a said...

Aprilynne I love you. Ive commmented too many times but yet I find myself on your page everyday. I really enjoyed the short story of Yuki's perspective, I was just wondering if that was just a deleted scene? Are we gonna see more scenes like that in the last book to fill us in? (You dont HAVE to answerthat one) . And are you gonna put up anymore shorts before the last book comes out in April?

Sarah-la said...

Ahhhh I love this series! I literally can't read anymore books until I read Destined!

Sarah-la said...

The Wings series is now my life! I literally CAN'T read another book until I've read Destined!

Do you have a date yet on when Destined will be available?

poostein dobby said...

When will it be released?!!!
looks EPIC!!!! gosh, i cant wait to read it!! <3

Lilly said...

Gorgeous!!! Probably my favorite cover so far. BTW, Illusions was my favorite so far. The books just keep getting better, but if Laurel doesn't end up with Tam, there will be some serious disappoint over here ;)

29ad22a0-02b8-11e1-b03c-000bcdca4d7a said...

I think your an amazing author.
You inspire me to continue to write and do what I love.

Teen Bookcase of Wayzata said...

Earth Girl said...

When can you leave a preview!!!!! I absolutely love the cover!!My favorite is Illusions though. When your done with this series make sure you do another one!! <3

Anonymous said...

Beautiful! I have one question...

Ashley 13 said...

I'm a BIG FAN! I LOVE YOUR BOOKS, I read non stop. I hope you continue the series. Have you ever thought of making a television show for the books you have written. That would be so AWESOME if they made it into a show when you were down with the series.

I am so, so excited for the next book. I am a little young to read the series myself but they are absolutely amazing! 'Wild' was a truly spellbounding book (literally!) and I can not wait to see if Laurel chooses David or Tamani. I would would be torn if I was her, because they are both so awesome! Please carry on writing more brilliant books!
