Last night I finished reading Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley for a review for TeensReadToo.
This was a cute fairy story. I think the younger YA audience will enjoy it. And it's a different take on the Fey world. Here, fairies are human-sized, have certain levels of magic (but they only have a certain amount they can use), and they have wands.
I enjoyed reading about Zaria. She was a cute character who had some pretty good morals. But she had a backbone too. Her friends were pretty much the same way.
This was a light quick read. I feel like a lot was left unanswered at the end though. I want to know more about what happened to Zaria's family, and where Lily went. I'm not sure if there is going to be a sequel or not, but I hope there is.
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
