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?


Author Bio:
Devri Walls lives in Kuna Idaho with her husband and two kids. She has worked as a music teacher and currently, a preschool teacher. She majored in theater and her love of a story still drives her today. Thankfully, she has finally found an outlet for all the voices in her head. Her first novel, Wings of Arian, is available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and Apple. The second book in the Solus trilogy, Wings of Tavea is scheduled for release Nov 2012.

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 in the own right.  It's rumored they may not even hate each other anymore.  Both will do anything they can to support Kiora, but hey wonder what will happen if she doesn't follow her destined path.

Kiora is continuing to grow in her powers and winning over new allies in her battle against the Shadow, but she beginning to fight her destiny.  She wants to find a way to defeat the Shadow without a battle that would cost thousands of lives.  This changes her course and she discovers new places long thought destroyed by time and returns to her home of Meros to bring a small part of the story full circle (it was a major Ohhhhh so that's what that was for moment - I love those).  She discovers that every action has a consequence.  Some absolutely horrible (I cried - really - I cried) and some so amazing I wanted to jump up and down (I restrained from scaring my family).

Any series that can bring such a emotional reaction to its characters is one that is sure to be a great series.  One that can pull this off three books in a row, well that's one that will never leave my bookshelf because I know I will want to read it again and again.

I need to come up with a rating for more than five stars - off the chart good stories.  Any ideas???
