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

Kiora’s search will push her closer to Alcander, send her to the dragon mountain of Toopai, and lead straight back t

"I did it for you!" Alcander yelled, stepping closer to her.
"I did it because I love you! I did it to keep you alive!"

This series...what more can I even say about it? It gets better and better with each book. Devri has stolen my heart with this series. I am not an emotional person while reading books, at all. I do get attached to characters, but never to the point of being really emotionally upset (aka: getting all teary eyed over them). This book made me almost cry like a baby multiple times th

A lot has happened to Kiora and Emane since the start of the Solus series. Kiora went from a normal girl to the one who can save them all, the Solus in a matter of days. Now she is with Emane, her protector and they have traveled to Meros where she will have to face an incredible darkness, her feelings for both great men in her life and her destiny.

At the end of Wings of Tavea, I was not Alcander's biggest fan. I mean here was this guy, who thought he was all powerful, and gods gift to well eve

Love the characters of these books! Even the heroine which i didn't at first. You can see her grow, very slowly, but she does. Story progresses with an even, nice pace as well.
Not the best review ^ i know but i would totally recommend these books!

Okay this review is more about about wings of Tavea and Nestor together.


First off I read people's reviews about how frustrated they were regarding Kiora's and Alcander's relationship. However, it made sense to me. I guess I saw Emane as that first romance, but although I really liked him I found her attraction to Alcander fit more with who she was becoming. As Alcander pointed out Emane coddled her and I believe the confidence Alcander showed in her is why she falls for him mor

Spoiler Alert:
This started a little slower, I had a hard time with Kiora. She was always making sure in the other books to focus on task on hand and keep Emane at bay. But in this book shes lusts more for Alcander and therefore not focused and top that baby off she won't listen to Lomay or any one whose trying to tell her to stop avoiding her destiny. In the end, shes causes more pain and destruction and cries a whole hell of a lot. Sorry but it's all so frustrating / Love and War.

Wings of Nestor is both breathtaking & heartbreaking as we join Kiora, Emane & Alcander for the penultimate book of the Solus series.

As the synopsis tells us ‘Kiora needs answers’ and now, more so than ever with her every move being discovered by ‘the Shadow’ who constantly finds Kiora through her dreams and knows just where & when to strike, so when Kiora discovers how she is being tracked, she is forced to take drastic act

This is a challenging review for me to write for several reasons. The first is because I loved the first two books in the series so much and the second is because I’m struggling to find the words to describe this book and my feelings towards it. As some of you may know from my reviews on the first two books in this series, Walls has managed to create a series that is rich in visual images, enjoyable characters, and leaves you wanting more long afte

What was suppose to be the final book is now another fun and action filled addition to the Solus series! In Wings of Nestor, the stakes are even higher for Kiora as she tries to fight the evil that is the Shadow. While she has defeated one evil, this one is proving to be an even tougher challenge. Kiora must hone her magical abilities, as well as learn to fight in the absence of magic. Being the prophecized savior is certainly taking its toll on her, and I enjoyed watching Kiora grow even as she ...more

This book starts pretty much where Wings of Tavea ended. I liked that it was Alcander on the cover and was hoping to get to know more about Alcander in Wings of Nestor. I was not disappointed. We get to know a whole lot more and pretty much find out why he is so bitter about all of this. I did feel bad for him. I liked him a lot.

The story continues with the Shadow being after Kiora and the rest of the area. Evil is growing and with Dralazar, now dead, we wish it had ended. But the Shadow is eve

*Please read the first two books in the Solus series before perusing Wings of Nestor*


Unbelievable! I thoroughly enjoyed the first two installments to the Solus series, but the third out shines them in every aspect. Wings of Tavea is perhaps my favorite in the series. They are all so  amazing that choosing one is nearly impossible.  

The revelations are remarkable!  I literally had to stay up the entire night for this one. The connections from Wings of Arian to this novel

The Solus series just keeps getting better and better. Wings of Nestor is my favorite installment so far.

One of the strengths of the books is the settings and Nestor is no different. Here, we're taken to imagery-rich places like Lomay's secret invisible mansion off the coast, the Tavean palace, the underground tunnel where the Wings of Nestor are, a secret hideout underneath a lake, and my favorite, Toopai, the dragon island, which is so beautifully written. This world is so creatively written

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

I am really glad I signed up for the Wings of Tavea blog tour in February because otherwise I’d be missing out. They are set in an intriguing fantasy world and have the perfect mix of action and great character dynamics.

The third book felt a lot more polished than the previous two and I loved the overall flow to the story. The plot slowly built up, escalating to a giant battle at the end. Wings of Nestor was, as I predicted, a lot darker than the previous two which makes sense in a land where wa

Wings of Nestor, the third book the Solus series, is another absolutely amazing installment. We travel all over the world and see so much I sometimes feel as if I've read more than one book. Don't get me wrong, it's not so packed that it's too much - it's just the right amount. Things move at the perfect pace to make the book fly by and still allow so much to happen that I don't even know where to begin.

Alcander and Emane change by leaps and bounds and really start to emerge as main characters i

Mousehead and Tales review of "Wings of Nestor" Solus ,#3
I have to say that while reading this book for my review I regretted not having read the two books that lead up to book 3.
Even without the entire back story I was drawn into the beautifully detailed character and world building described by author Devri Walls.
The story at this point is mainly told through "Kiora's" p.o.v.
From what I put together from the details of the story "Kiora" is a gentle hearted young women who has been prophesied

Just click the tour banner below to go to the post, and you can read the first chapter of the first book there as well. I loved this series. Check it out. (there is also a great giveaway too!)

I loved Wings of Nestor so much! These books just keep getting better and better. Each character from Kiora to Alcander to Emane has continued to grow in strength . This book really focused on Kiora still trying to accept her destiny of being the Solus and in doing so she makes mistakes and she learns from then. I absolutely loved Alcander even better in this one and how he continues to let down his barriers for Kiora and I just loved the moments between him and I am so happy that Kiora picked h ...more

I finished this book late last night just after midnight and then proceeded to spend the next two hours sleepless as I dwelled on what had happened and how much I LOVED where this story had gone. As you can imagine I woke up a little late today but no less enraptured with the Solus series. I hate spoilers and so I won't say to much but I think Alcander may have made my top 10 list for male characters! Seriously, check out the cover! After book two I was so torn between what I wanted for Emane an ...more

Walls keeps improving with each book, which makes WINGS OF NESTOR my favorite of the series! There's not a dull moment in this story. It's jam-packed with action, romance, adventure, dragons, heartbreak, magic, and dragons. Did I mention dragons??

I love how much Kiora has grown as a character. I was rooting for her and backing her up when none of the other characters believed her. I didn't anticipate the twist in the story, which is great--I love getting surprised by stories!

Hey guys, finished Wings of Nestor(Solus #3) and just like the previous books it did not disappoint. It was as thrilling and action pqcked as the others. I must say, the author is extremely creative to come up with such spells and magic enchantments. I am still wavering on who i think kiora should end up with, Emane or Alcander, but then again... visions will also play a role. That is all i will say on that matter.

Between fantasy and reality

 Wings of Nestor is the 3rd breathtaking installment in the Solus series and I am still spellbound. This fantastic, magical world that Walls created is so wonderfully developed and the story continues to be interesting and unpredictable. Kiora improves in this book and Emane and Alcander are both wonderful. I am sad because whichever choice she makes in the end, one guy will be hurt by it. Since Alcander is bonded to Kiora, she is his one and only for his life. In this

I Love this series. It's the first series where I can't choose who I like most in the love triangle. I've always lived Emane...but Alcander isn't a bad guy, just hardened by war & loss. Kiora has a tough decision to make.
This book has a lot of action where Kiora really pushes the limits of her magic. She also makes a new ally who sheds light on who the Shadow is.

This series has gotten to me. The author has done such a good job of writing a story that is action packed. That allows the characters to grow. That allows them to make mistakes and learn from them. Just awesome. And the triangle works too. I'm a fan of Emane. He has a distinct disadvantage in this world. But doesn't allow it to stop. Arcander is willing to admit when he's been wrong. And they support her even when they think she's making the right choice. The secondary characters continue to ad ...more

Another great book to the whole series,but now I'm excited for the end. I really love how the author is still amazing us with new twists and turns in the book. I'm not going to ruin anything, but this book was I feel more about using logic and feelings to make decisions. I believe in this day and age not a lot of people do. Also I love on how we continue to see kiora grow up and truly embrace her destiny. On to the last book!

Ok, so I had a little bit of a hard time getting into Book 2, The Wings of Arian. Probably because I waited so long. But Devri Walls grabbed with page one in Wings of Nestor and didn't let go.

There was so much going on! I laughed and I cried. Well, I cried a lot. I mean a lot! She got me good with this. I can't wait for the next one!!
