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?
I am so glad that I got the chance to read this series because they are really great fantasy novels. Complex, imaginative and filled with all the right emotions. It is impossible to read them without feeling connected to the story and caring about the characters. I am sad to say goodbye as each book was a pleasure to read.
Wings of Lomay is a solid conclusion to the Solus series and contains everything I could have possibly wished for and plenty more besides. It tied together so many loose ends, was filled with may twists and turns, and slowly pulled me into a captivating world.
Though the characterization isn’t the best, the characters have grown tremendously over the course of the four books. Even the minor characters develop and change and I enjoyed seeing some old friends who make reappearances. The dialogue though, is definitely awesome. The humourous exchanges between Drustan, Alcander and Emane were fun to read and brought a smile to my face. Kiora’s relationship with Alcander has grown stronger as well and I loved seeing the two of them together.
The battle scenes are tense and exciting. Choatic is definitely the adjective I would use since many things happen at once and we are treated to multiple POVs. This also means there is never a dull moment making the book hard to put down. Kiora’s magic has improved once again, making bigger and more complicated plans possible.
Kiora continues to struggle with learning to overcome her regrets and let go of the feelings of guilt that eat away at her confidence. Loss has a big presence in the book due to the massive numbers of lives lost, and affects all of the character’s in different ways. Destiny continues to play a big role, coming true in the most surprising of ways.
The ending was bittersweet but I am very happy with how the series concluded.
