Destined by Aprilynne Pike

Tamani looked at her gravely, and reached up to tuck her hair behind her ear.

He hesitated for an instant, then his hands found the sides of her face, pulling her to him. He didn't kiss her, just held her face close to his, their foreheads resting together, their noses almost touching.

She hated how much it felt like good-bye.

Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful — and deadly — of all, and Klea plans to use her to help conquer and destroy Avalon. But Klea's reach extends far beyond one wild Winter faerie. With Tamani, David, and Chelsea by her side, Laurel prepares to face what may be Avalon's final days, in the stunning conclusion to the Wings series

First line:
"Tamani pressed his forehead against the chilly windowpane, fighting back a wave of exhaustion."

Interesting series, characters and story. I liked the first book I think.  But this last one delivers and gives some closer. 
Klea is evil and feels justified in taking over Avalon. Yuki is her minion. Can either of them change?? 
Laurel and her friends must fight to preserve Avalon. There are a few twists and plots that I didn't expect. 
Who does Laurel pick? It's pretty obvious from the beginning of the book. 

L: No
S: No, kissing
V: Fighting trolls and bad guys

Laurel thinking up solutions
David & his sword
Chelsea helping

Klea didn't seem very bright
The big fight wasn't much of a big fight in the end
