Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book:
Yes.  Double Yes.  All the Yes*.  I allowed my son to pull out an entire box of tissues – the LAST box in the house – because I needed to finish the last ten pages, and waiting until his bedtime just wasn’t an option.  For some reason I was under the impression that Wings of Nestor was the last book in the Solus series, but when I got to the end I realized – happily – that I was wrong.

Walls has done it again.  I’m hooked.  Wings of Nestor is absolutely enthralling.  The characters grow, change, and continue to surprise.  It appears that Alcander is winning the “Who Does Kiora Love” contest for the moment, and I still dig their dynamic.  But friends – after watching and listening to Emane over this last book … well … I hesitate to say it, but I’m thinking I may have ordered my Team Alcander shirt too quickly.  Relegating Emane to the friend zone brings out some particularly awesome bits of Emane-ness – even if he is a Witow.

It wasn’t just Emane, either.  Kiora’s visit to Toopai made me tear up a little (even though I still giggled at the name).  And then there’s Alcander’s Uncle.  And Jasmine.  And Ky.  Oh, Ky.  You’ll have to read it.  I can’t spoil it for you.  You’re going to weep (well, you’re at least going to sniffle).  When you get to the end, you’re going to rage.  Then, after the longest five seconds of your life, you’ll realize there’s no way Walls can possibly leave things the way they are – at least not without ten thousand angry fan e-mails – and you’ll sigh in relief.  There’s going to be more, and it’s going to be epic.

Would I recommend it: *see above.

Will I read it again: I’m not sure my heart can take it, but I’m anxiously awaiting the next installment, Wings of Lomay, which I’d be happy to review :::nudge nudge, wink wink:::

About the book:
Kiora needs answers. Who is the Shadow? Who is Jasmine? Are they connected? And even more pressing: how can she stop Shadow from using Kiora’s dreams as a map to find them? They have escaped three times, but are living on borrowed time—and everybody knows it.

Her search for help will push her closer to Alcander, send her to the dragon mountain of Toopai, and straight back to Meros—where magic will finally return to the land of no magic. Answers will be uncovered and plans unearthed that have been waiting for thousands of years.

But with the Shadow’s forces gathering, it looks like the land’s path is hurtling towards one outcome: war with the Shadow and death to all rebels. Armed with knowledge and hope, Kiora is determined to change that path. But will fate allow it? Or will it deal her a hard lesson about following ones own destiny?

About the book – from Goodreads:
Kiora thought she had never heard a lie until she was sixteen. But she was wrong. Her entire existence was based on nothing but. She thought that evil did not exist. Lie. That magic was not real. Lie. And that the land of Meros was all there was. One more lie.

With Aleric telling her that evil is knocking on the door and that she is the only one who can stop them she has a choice to make. Refuse, or start the wildest most painful ride of her life.
She reluctantly dips her toe into her new existence of magic and threads, dragons and shapeshifters, and the person who wants to take control of it all: the evil Dralazar.

However, this journey was never meant to be hers alone. She will be accompanied by a Protector. To her disbelief, and utter irritation they name the hotheaded, stubborn, non -magical, (albeit gorgeous) Prince Emane. They will have to trust each other with their lives, but right now Kiora would settle for a non hostile conversation.

And now it comes down to this, If you had never heard a lie, would you know when you heard one? Is knowing good from evil innate? Kiora finds herself having to decide who lives and who dies on those very questions.

About the book – from Goodreads: Kiora is rapidly learning that evil and lies come in shades of black and white and swirling greys, but nothing could have prepared her for the shock of leaving Meros.
Kiora and her protector Emane step through the pass into a world they never knew existed but were always meant to save, only to find it far worse than they could have ever imagined. Good has been forced into hiding for its own survival, while the rest of the land bows to the Shadow, a force that pushes any remaining thoughts of Dralazar from Kiora’s mind. This land is full of new creatures, each more dangerous than the last. Her visions have taken on a deadly twist, and magic, or what comes of it, was never so real. And then there is Alcander: a Tavean, their guide, and an entirely different kind of trouble.

Kiora’s the Solace. She’s their only hope.
