Warriors of Wing and Flame is the second part of author Sara B. Larson's Sisters of Shadow and Light duology. The story alternates between 18-year old Zuhra, and her 16-year old sister Inara. Picking up immediately following the events of Sisters of Shadow and Light, things are at a tipping point. Zuhra has returned home from Visimperum, home of the Paladin’s, bringing with her long-lost father Adelric, and a team of Gryphon Ri

Warriors of Wing and Flame was a satisfying and sweet conclusion in the Sisters of Shadow and Light duology.

This installment picks up from where the first book left off. Barloc has escaped and now its up to our favorite sisters Zuhra and Inara with the help of their family and friends to stop him before he brings death and destruction to their home Vamala and Visimperum.

Like the first book, this is told in 2 POV's, Zuhra's and Inara's. While Inara was under her roar mental state in the first boo

Phew. I’ve been waiting for this book! I finally read it, and here we go... The finale.


The sequel picks up much where the cliffhanger leaves off in the first book. I noticed this time around it was harder for me to distinguish between the sisters, Zuhra and Inara. This made for confusing reading at times, and I’d have to break to turn back a few pages to remind myself who it was. Maybe it’s because Inara grew so much that she resembled her older sister. Nevertheless, it was confuddling at times.

Hold on tight because this story is one wild and exciting gryphon ride!

Spoilers for book 1 below:

Picking up where SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT ended, Zuhra and Inara are finally reunited but the cost is high. The deaths of others including their grandfather and almost Inara. Barloc has escaped with Inara’s power and continues to kill. He must be stopped at all costs. But the more he kills the more powerful he becomes. If they can find him, will they be strong enough to stop him?

Warriors of Wing and Flame picks up right where Sisters of Shadow and Light left off. Inara no longer has her intense Paladin powers after Barloc steals them following his gruesome attack. After years of thinking that she was completely powerless, Zuhra finds out that she is in fact an enhancer, which is a rare gift among the Paladin. And if both of those things weren’t wild enough, now that the doorway between Visempirum and the human world has been reopened, Zuhra and Inara have been reunited ...more

After reading the first book in this duology, I was anxiously awaiting this book. The first book left off in a cliff hanger place so it felt like a rough place to end and a long time to wait. You really must read the first book before you read this book.

This book picks up pretty much where the last book leaves off. It has excellent pacing and plenty going on that kept me interested in the story and invested in the characters. I loved the mix of adventure, action, romance and magic. I also loved

Well here I am back talking about the sisters Zuhra and Inara. As the previous book ended Inara cruelly had her Paladin powers quite literally ripped out of her by Barloc and this sequel catches up right after the events. The story is told equally by both sisters which gave great insight into their thoughts and feelings although I confess a couple of times I had to check which sisters point of view I was reading . Why ? I think that previously Zuhra had dominated as one, she was older but perhap ...more

Oh, my heart! Warriors of Wing and Flame picks up where Sisters of Shadow and Light left off, and I loved every action-packed second of it! Barloc escaped, and Zuhra and Inara must work together with friends and family to defeat him before he destroys all that they hold dear.

Sara B. Larson creates a magical world with cool powers and fantastic magical beings. Her writing is beautiful and immersive, easily pulling the reader into a world with gryphons, magic portals, murderous monsters, and more.

Mon avis en français

My review in English

I loved the first volume and I was really looking forward to discovering the rest of Inara and Zuhra’s adventures after all the events that had taken place.

Now that the two sisters are together again, they have to deal with the consequences of everything that happened beforehand, and it’s far from easy! With their allies, they will soon have to go after Barloc in order to neutralize him. Unfortunately, Barloc is becoming increasingly powerful and deadly.

'Warriors of Wing and Flame' is the second and final book in an enchanting young adult fantasy duology that fans of the genre and of the author are definitely going to love. I've read several of the author's other books - including the first book of this duology - and absolutely loved them. After finishing the first installment, I couldn't wait to see how Inara's and Zuhra's stories wrapped up.

The main characters, Inara and Zuhra, continued to be incredibly realistic and easy for me to connect

Warriors of Wing and Flame is the second and last book in the Sisters of Shadow and Light duology. I very much enjoyed this conclusion to the series, enjoyed the mix of fantasy action (big battle scenes) and character growth.

Zuhra has returned home, bringing with her her long-lost father and teams of Riders with their gryphons. But they must now face the devastation they found upon their return. Inara is reeling from the loss of her powers and the Paladin are desperately trying to track down the

I am so happy I had to the opportunity to read & review Warriors of Wing & Flame by one of my favorite locals Sara B. Larson. I loved sisters of Shadow & Light so much!

These two sisters are so badass! Both of them have unique abilities and we get to see so much more of them in Warriors. I really like that even in moments where they're separated they can still feel each other to some extent. Their bond is so strong and no matter what they will fight to get back to one another.

Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan-Tor/Forge for providing me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I requested this ARC not realizing that it was book 2 of a series, so I had to pick up book 1 to give it a full review. The first book was disappointing - there were some problematic things I saw with parental relationships and romances but Warriors of Wing and Flame did improve in generally doing away with some of the problematic relationships there were.

Warriors of Wing and Flame by Sara B. Larson picks up almost directly where Sisters of Shadow and Light leaves off. Barloc has escaped and now it is up to Zuhra and Inara and friends to stop him before he destroys all that they know and love.

I enjoyed this book more than the first one. That happens a lot but I think it's because I understand the world better than before and understand the characters. I enjoyed the pacing for this book and the author's writing. The story picked off after book one (kind of right after). This book was more complex though I wished there was a bigger villain. I wanted to get to know more about him and felt that I didn't. Though I did enjoy the main characters and the supp

Warriors of Wing and Flame was a highly anticipated sequel for me, and Sara B. Larson did not hold back!

From the twists and turns, the heart-wrenching sacrifices Inara and Zuhra make for the good of both worlds, and the non-stop action, I couldn't put this one down! I've been a huge fan of Larson's books since she wrote the Defy trilogy, and I can't wait to see what happens next in this tale!

Thank you to Tor Teen and NetGalley for giving me a chance to read this eARC.

I loved the first book of this duology and was looking forward to reading this sequel. There was a lot to digest in this final book but it was a very emotional, enjoyable ride.

My Reactions:

My Attention: I read this book in two days so it’s safe to say it had my attention.

World Building: I really love this world the author created. I want to ride on a gryphon and be a paladin!

Zuhra and Inara both grapple with the aftermath of Barloc's betrayal and the gateway between Vamala and Vispempirum being reopened.

I did not like this one as much as I liked book one. Don't get me wrong, it was a good ending to the duology and I 100% understand why the author made all of the decisions she did and I know other people will probably really like it, I just had the hardest time liking the chapters that Inara was narrating/wanting to read, which in turn meant that I wasn't as engaged for about half the bo

I had not yet read the first book in this duology, so I read both books back to back. There is so much to love in this series – magical god-like creatures, the human and magical worlds connected by a gateway, an intriguing magic system, gryphons and gryphon riders (!), and an impending war between the humans and magical beings that our protagonists must stop – but my absolute favorite thing about this series is the bond between sisters Zuhra and Inara.

WARRIORS OF WING AND FLAME is an intriguing conclusion to a YA fantasy duology about sisterhood. This book picks up where the first left off with Zuhra and Inara once again together, but the world is under attack from Barloc, the jakla who has stolen others' (including Inara's) Paladin powers. Mourning the losses among them and their disconnect once again from their home world, the small group of Paladin now in the citadel must regroup and try to find a way to track and stop Barloc before he des ...more

Warriors of Wing and Flame is the gripping conclusion to the Sisters of Shadow and Light duology, starting shortly after Sisters ended. Inara and Zuhra are back trying to save Vamala and Visimperum, while trying to figure out life, romance, and the boys they have given their hearts to. In Warriors, we get redemption, excitement, and new adventures for our two favorite sisters.

This was such a good conclusion to this duology and offered a clean and satisfying end to the journey that we followed Zuhra and Inara on.

This book starts off straight after the events of the first book and I was happy to be back in this world with these characters. I liked how this book brought minor characters to the forefront, allowing us to learn more about them. I was also happy that Inara really grew as a character, which was one of my issues with Sisters of Shadow and Light. I really lik
