Wings of Nestor
Series: Solus #3
Publication date: June 24th 2013
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?
"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 to put an end to "The Shadow", a powerful unknown villain that has brought the fantasy world full of magic to heel. The first descriptions of "The Shadow" reminded me of "The Nothing" from "The Neverending Story". It's fueling it's own bid for immortality by leeching magic from the different species of beings from the land.
By far the description of the island of Toopai was the most enchanting. The dragons with their chameleon like scales was breath taking.
I had been under the impression that this was the last book in the "Solus" series. I'm thrilled to say I was wrong! Though again I'm left at a miserable at the book ending on a cliff hanger.
Between the discovery of who "The Shadow" is. The terrible truth of what trying to sidestep a fated path,and the heart breaking description of a beautiful red haired,red winged boy symbolizing the cost. A love triangle that even leaves the reader unable to choose who to root for... Well it's definitely a series that will engage readers of both genders and ages.
I will definitely be reading the next book in the "Solus" series as well as reading the first two books in the series so I can enjoy the complete spectrum of emotion the author has filled each character with."

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.

Series: Solus #2
Published: November, 2012
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.
