How is it possible?! I seriously loved Wings of Arian the first book in the Solus series, but book two Wings of Tavea... I dare say I enjoyed even more so than Wings of Arian! I am always very wary of picking up sequels to books I loved, but thank goodness Wings of Tavea surpassed my expectations and completely took me by surprise!

Book One is all about a world that has been devoid of evil and so it was a little too sweet for me at times. Book Two is all about a world that has been devoid of good and so I love ever moment in this land. There was much character growth from both good side and evil. I’m also quite attached to two of the characters introduced in this book: Alexander and Lomay. The plot in this book is slightly more unpredictable than the first, but the visuals are no less breathtaking. I truly love the descrip ...more

I dove immediately into Wings of Tavea right after I finished Wings of Arian. This installment, in my opinion, was a whole lot stronger than Wings of Arian and proves my prediction that it's a series that will really progress.

I don't know if it's because I went into the book expecting to dislike Kiora, but I found myself tolerating her presence a lot more in this installment for some reason. She had her whiny and annoying moments but for the most part, I liked her much much better. Her growth wa

This series is continuing to surprise me. The world the writer created is breathtaking and interesting. Every creature is amazing, especially dragons and Shifters. I love absolutely everything in this series, but the only thing that annoys me a little is Kiora. She is whining almost all the time. Ename is a funny character, brave and loving and I consider him and Alcander the best part of this book, besides the creatures. The storyline is inventiv

Wow! I enjoyed the first book in this series but this second book just took it to a whole new level. It must be the addition of Alcandar who is the type of character that both infuriates you and tugs at your heart strings. I haven't felt this conflicted over a love triangle since the Twilight series! Emane is such a strong person in his own right but his devotion to Kiora, even as he is tortured, made me view him in a new light. Speaking of Kiora she grows by leaps and bounds in some areas and y ...more

Picking up right where Wings of Arian left off we follow Kiora and Emane as they venture beyond the gates into a world they never knew existed, a world they were meant to save. And a world where good is hard to find. The Shadow haunts these lands forcing its residents to bow before it or die. Kiora and Emane quickly realize that this world is much more dangerous than they ever realized. As they try to determine what is safe in this strange new land they stumble upon a fierce warrior who offers h ...more

As I’ve already mentioned, I have found a serious love for Devri Walls and her writing. After having finished the first book of this series, I knew without a moment of a doubt that I wanted to read the second book in order to find out what happens next to Kiora and Eamon. Normally when I pick up the next book of the series, I find that they tend to be not as thrilling as the first was, but that was so not the case with this one. If anything this wa

This review is also posted HERE.

When reading fantasy-themed sequels, I usually have a rather difficult time reimmersing myself to the different worlds. Upon reading the first few pages, I often find myself bombarded with heaps of information that I have already learned some months ago but have forgotten and as a result, reading fantasy sequels becomes a chore and not really a task that I enjoy doing. Info-dumping simply isn't enjoyable, no matter which way you look at it. Honestly, I cannot even

This was such an incredible improvement over its predecessor. I cannot emphasis enough how much better the second book is. So many of the issues I had with Wings of Arian were amended in Wings of Tavea. Firstly, it took me days (with LOTS of breaks) to finish the first book. But this book I finished in just two sittings. Much better paced.

Where there was no back story or history in Wings of Arian, the history really begins to blossom in this installment. We learn about an entirely different area

Not being a big reader of high fantasy Devri Walls has a way of making me love it. With fantastic world building, character growth, a solid plot she takes me into the world she has created and commands my attention. After reading Wings of Arian and loving it, I was eager to dive into this one and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be. It was packed full of action, suspense, and a twist that makes me have a pouty face, but I am sure that it appeals to a lot of people. This book takes us ...more

I enjoyed Wings of Tavea more than the previous book. I had been worried about the Middle of a Trilogy Syndrome, but it only moderately had some of the symptoms. The main one that I can think of is that this book served as more of a set up for the last book rather than moving the plot significantly forward. Luckily, it wasn’t boring though!

We’re through the gate and out of Meros, into a land that is based entirely in magic. Here there are many more types of magical creatures, most of which are m

After Wings of Arian – a wondrous adventure-packed, I wondered what direction Devri Walls would take with Wings of Tavea. And although the 1st installment still remains my favorite, book two comes in close with a 4.5/5 stars rating.

Kiora, Emane, and Drustan returns after a war against Dralazar marking their first chapter in the prophecy — one claiming Kiora and Emane will be the ones to set matters right, as The Solus and her Protector.

As if the Meros was not already creative enough, Devri Walls

For thousands of years, the mountains surrounding Meros has been a barrier and a mystery to the inhabitants of the valley. But, no one ever thought to explore what was on the other side. Their thoughts just got distracted from the mountains to more important things, like, the weather. But all of that has changed. The magical gate separating the valley from a world none of them knew existed as been opened by Dralazar, the same person who erected the gate in the first place. Dralazar, the great ev ...more

Wings of Tavea is book two in the Solus Series. After reading Wings of Arian, I was really excited to jump into this one. It starts back up where book one ends with Kiora, Drustan and Emane traveling through the open gates into an unknown world. They have no idea of what lurks on the other side of the gates; however, they are informed that nothing good has stayed. When they meet Alcander, the Tavean prince is not so thrilled but inclines to take them to Lomay, an ancestor to one of the creators. ...more

After reading Wings Of Arian I was so glad that I had Wings Of Tavea ready to continue with, as I don't think that I could have walked away without reading book #2!

Wings Of Arian is based more around a place void of Evil, Wings Of Tavea is the opposite, its a place void of good; or at least very little good exists.
We know; from Wings Of Arian; that Emane has been give a magical snake armband and when Dralazar tried to remove it, it sunk its fangs into his hand. In book #2 Dralazar has learnt tha

Following Wings of Arian, Wings of Tavea starts off with Kiora, Emane, and Drustan leaving the land of Meros into a land they never knew existed but were always meant to save. This new land is full of new creatures and evil has all but eliminated all that was once good in the land, and Kiora finds she must harness her magic and save a world from the power of the Shadow before it's too late.

'Wings of Tavea', the second book in The Solus Trilogy, picks up right where the first book left off. Kiora has finally gotten on the right path since getting her world turned upside down and started on her journey. However, the things she once saw in only black and white now seem to have shades of gray that are blurring the lines. What she and Prince Emane, her Protector, find once they leave Meros is worse than either could've expected. The Shadow - an overwhelming evil force - has ta

This review originally appeared on my blog, Starting the Next Chapter.

Wings of Arian introduced us to a young girl coming into her powers in a land that had long been devoid of evil... or so she thought. Now Kiora is in for a real shock as she learns just what is really out there. In Wings of Tavea, you're in for an even bigger whirlwind than ever before. If you thought you had seen it all in Wings of Arian, well, you haven't seen anything yet.

This book picks up pretty soon where Wings of Arian left. I enjoyed this book better than book 1 for some reason. Maybe, there was more action?

Kiora, Emane and Durstan are off to a new Adventure. Now that the gates are down they are sent to the other side of the mountain that was blocked off by Dralazar and Eleana via magic. Eleana and the others have sent Kiora & the gang to Lomay for further knowledge and training. The other side is even darker and is surrounded by this unknown evil known

Wings of Tavea picks up right where Wings of Arian ends and we are once again thrown into an incredible adventure with tons of awesome world-building.

Once again, we are introduced to a wide array of fantastical creatures, every one unique.

The characters were developed a lot more, allowing me to connect with them better which I was lacking in the first book. Kiora really grows as a character as she finally sees the full extent of what is destined for her to accomplish and sees a whole new evil. S

This is the second book in the Solus series. There may be minor spoilers if you have not read book 1, but nothing that should ruin your experience. You will definitely want to read book one before beginning book 2.

***Possible SPOILERS. Do not read unless you have read the first book.***

The Solus series is a MUST - READ for magic lovers. Creativity flourishes in unique adventures and uncharted schemes. The prose effectively creates an atmosphere of intrigue. The story-line is truly incredible. Devri Walls meticulously constructed a broad collection of paranormal creatures that had otherwise been a gray area for me.

This book continues shortly after the first, as they decide to journey into unknown territory past the gate that kept them closed in all these years. One of things I loved the most was the new land that they got to explore. The land gets expanded to a place filled with magic and awesome new types of magical creatures for them to meet. The only problem for them is that there’s way more danger and those new people are out to

Walls has a background in theater, and it shows in her writing. Witty dialogue and strong characters bring life to every scene. The fantasy world is brimming with magic and amazing creatures. I was especially fascinated by the interactions between the Taveans, Shifters, and humans.

I love a good love-triangle, and this story doesn't disappoint. The best part--I can't decide whom I want Kiora to be with! That's a sign of a well-written story. No black-and-whites, but realistic gray areas that leav

So, I just want to start out by saying that this is the second book in a series and I did not read the first book, so I was a little lost in the beginning as I was being caught up as well as having the story move forward.

From what I read and picked up, though, I think that even if one doesn't read the first book it is still readable.

Now onwards to the story. I absolutely love high fantasy. In my opinion this feels like one of the most creative genres around because essentially a whole world with

Another amazing job did by Devri Walls! I have to admit I enjoyed this second book in the series more than the first. Kiora it’s more mature in this book, more powerful and strong. She accepted her destiny and she started doing more things and not whine so much. Brilliant job with her! Some new characters were introduced into the book along with a love triangle. I thought this would make me dislike the book, but that didn't happen, even if I liked Emane.
