Wings of Tavea ( The Solus Series Book 2 ) by Devri Walls
Wings of Tavea is Book 2 in the Solus Series, a young adult fantasy series.
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.
ABOUT DEVRI WALLS:

***Read Wings of Arian first***
***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.
Wings of Tavea, quite literally held my mind captive. As much as I needed to finish it quickly, the desire to prolong the story because I didn't want my enjoyment to come to an end. I thoroughly enjoyed the new circumstances but also felt the same home sickness of the characters and still harness a desire to read Wings of Arian again. I want to enjoy the euphoria of a first love as much as possible.
The story continues where Wings of Arian ends. The striking new personalities that emerge from the introduction of new characters ensures there will be no need to refresh any monotony. I had to step back for a second at just the how much the traits belonging to both Emane and Alcander resembled one another. Taking Kiora’s love for Emane into consideration, I had to calm my nagging suspicions of an upcoming love triangle. Because of Kiora’s steadfast purity I can't believe what actually happened! It's intense and Kiora’s emotions are easily empathized leaving the reader feeling as lost as she.
The author is wonderfully inventive and I can only hope she spends the rest of her life writing these incredible books for us!
I am officially addicted to the Solus series and wasting time before jumping into book three is impossible.
Another 5 star book! You WILL enjoy it just as much as I have.
