Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour for book three in the Solus series, Wings of Nestor, and wanted to read the first two books in the series prior to reading the third. See my review of Wings of Arian here. (Chrissy had 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!
I’m again annoyed with myself for waiting a day to write the review (Wings of Nestor is calling to me from across the room). Hurry up, self! Tell the world how much you liked Solus #2 so you can get going on Solus #3! Go! Write! Tell them about the awesome new world with the awesome new bad guys! Tell them about Lomay, and the second set of wings, and the pretty half-ostrich people, and … Ooooooohhhhh. Tell them about Alcander. Delicious, gorgeous, magical Alcander. Yum. What about Emane, you ask? Oh, he’s just as delicious as ever, but now there’s a distinct Edward-versus-Jacob vibe. I love it.
Anyway. Wings of Tavea is great and I’m confident Wings of Nestor will be too.
(By the way, I’m getting a t-shirt made that says “Team Alcander.”)
Would I recommend it: Yes. Read it. Well, read Solus #1 first. Then read Wings of Tavea. Then get your t-shirt made.
Will I read it again: If I have time, YES. Goooo Team Alcander!
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.
