Violet Wings - Victoria Hanley A well-constructed, original middle-grade novel, a bit light on length and a bit more could have been going on, especially as regards the status issue (violet fairies are "better" than a "green" or "red"). I liked the emphasis on Feyland, rather than on Earth, though the importance of human happiness + godparents + sonnia + fate of fairies should be explored in greater detail as it is a unique (to my experience thus far)facet of their world and race.

Is this the first in a series? Because my first reaction was that the story is far from resolved. Lily Morganite is still on the loose.The Council is questionable. Zaria's parents are still missing/trapped by glacier time magic. Why is Zaria so gifted - able to improvise her own spells? Why are magically gifted faeries born less often? Just what was it that Jett thought was going to change? All these questions deserve answers and I hope we get them.
