Destined Wings 4 Aprilynne Pike Tamani pressed his forehead against the chilly windowpane, fighting back a wave of exhaustion. Tonight, he was Fear-gleidhidh twice over. The old word was one he normally wore with pride. But it had a richer meaning, one that went beyond the more traditional Am Fear-faire.
Now he played prison warden too. He looked over at his captive. She slept, her cheek resting on her knees, hands cuffed loosely behind her. She looked uncomfortable. Tamani felt Shar stiffen at the sound of her voice, breaking the thick silence. Not sleeping after all. And she could never be harmless, he reminded himself. The small white flower blooming from the middle of her back, marking her a Winter faerie, was proof enough of that.
It filled him with an icy fear he had rarely felt before. He had known. Yuki would eventually have discovered that his affections were a sham, and then he would be at the mercy of a Winter faerie scorned. Better to cut the charade short. The power Winter faeries had over plants also made it possible for them to sense plant life at a distance, so from the instant Yuki had met Tamani, she had known him for a faerie. Known Laurel, too. The Winter had played them all.
David or no David, she belongs here, and you know it. But always against an obvious threat, a violent attacker: a proven foe. Trolls were their enemy — had always been. Somehow, putting her in chains felt worse than killing a hundred trolls. Tamani knew better. If you vouched for me, we could even go peacefully to Avalon. We could stay there together and live in the palace.
Between your power over animals and mine over plants, the world would be ours. You know, the pairing of a Spring and Winter would work really well. Our talents complement each other perfectly.
Her dark, lustrous hair fell forwards, veiling her face, and she sniffled quietly. Was she crying, or stifling a laugh?
Tamani started when a knock sounded at the door. Before he could take a step, Shar moved silently to the peephole. Knife in his fist, Tamani tensed — ready. Was it Klea? And might not. If only they could know for sure. Until they did, Tamani had to assume they were a threat — a lethal one. But with a shimmer of a grimace, Shar pulled the door open and Laurel entered the room, Chelsea close behind. Even after loving Laurel for as long as he could remember, and lately becoming something.

So I have. It also has Tamani, who practically makes up for any faults, but more on that later. I absolutely adored it. Metaphorically speaking, of course. She can be almost ridiculously reckless but at the same time I understand that she does it to protect the people she loves. I would follow that man faerie to the ends of the Earth. I love that about him, and I love the fierce loyalty and the strong sense of love that I can tell he genuinely feels.
