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 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, the rebels are hurtling toward one outcome: war. Armed with knowledge and hope, Kiora is determined to change that path, but will fate allow it? Or will it teach her a hard lesson about following her own destiny?
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 war is building. Innocent people die and good people unintentionally do horrible things.
This isn’t one of those stories where everyone survives. It’s the realistic type where most die and the cost to defeat evil is ginormous if not seemingly impossible. However, there is still hope to free the people and rebuild the land out of the survivors.
The banter between the characters is amazing and very funny. I read most of the book with a smile on my face because it just seems so natural. Plus, without it, the book would have just been depressing. I loved learning more about the characters and getting the chance to delve deeper into their pasts – especially Alcander’s. Just when you think you’ve learned all there is to know about him, you see a different side of his personality. I liked the romance in the book and I love the direction the love triangle is taking.
Heck, I love the direction the whole book is taking. Pieces are starting to fall into place building up to the final confrontation between Kiora and the Shadow. Kiora’s destiny is a lot bigger and more complicated that I could possibly have imagined and I would not want to be put in her shoes. Well, except for the magic part.
I’m not sure if the next book, Wings of Lomay, is the final book or if it is intended to be a longer series. Either way, I’m sure I’ll enjoy them all.
