I'm getting a "Team Alcander" t-shirt made.
Did I enjoy this book: Yes!
I’m again annoyed with myself for waiting a day to write the review (Wings of Nestor is calling to me from across the room). Hurry up, self! Tell the world how much you liked Solus #2 so you can get going on Solus #3! Go! Write! Tell them about the awesome new world with the awesome new bad guys! Tell them about Lomay, and the second set of wings, and the pretty half-ostrich people, and … Ooooooohhhhh. Tell them about Alcander. Delicious, gorgeous, magical Alcander. Yum. What about Emane, you ask? Oh, he’s just as delicious as ever, but now there’s a distinct Edward-versus-Jacob vibe. I love it.
Anyway. Wings of Tavea is great and I’m confident Wings of Nestor will be too.
(By the way, I’m getting a t-shirt made that says “Team Alcander.”)
Would I recommend it: Yes. Read it. Well, read Solus #1 first. Then read Wings of Tavea. Then get your t-shirt made.
Will I read it again: If I have time, YES. Goooo Team Alcander!

Another amazing job did by Devri Walls! I have to admit I enjoyed this second book in the series more than the first. Kiora it’s more mature in this book, more powerful and strong. She accepted her destiny and she started doing more things and not whine so much. Brilliant job with her! Some new characters were introduced into the book along with a love triangle. I thought this would make me dislike the book, but that didn't happen, even if I liked Emane.
Dralazar has returned and he tries to get some compliance from an individual. He quite a villain and he never forgets why he is doing all that things.
The loved triangle it’s formed by Emane, Kiora and Alcander, a new character. The two guys argue over her constantly. Alcander is a lost soul, but underneath that grumpy skin I think there is a funny, loving character and I think he and Kiora will make a beautiful couple.
The author really does a great job at making her world absolutely captivating. This book was a lot more action-packed and intense, than the first book. Devri Walls is a great writer and her writing has a way of forcing you to read her book. I recommend this book!

I have read the sample of Tavea and Arian books. Highly reccomend this book, though please read the first book first. Easier to understand that way. Though I hope Kiora and Emane's love life gets more " steamy " and possibly a love rival for Emane.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

How is it possible?! I seriously loved Wings of Arian the first book in the Solus series, but book two Wings of Tavea... I dare say I enjoyed even more so than Wings of Arian! I am always very wary of picking up sequels to books I loved, but thank goodness Wings of Tavea surpassed my expectations and completely took me by surprise!
If you have not yet read Wings of Arian....WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! This is a series that is not to be missed by any fantasy/adventure lover! Devri has yet again proved herself to be an amazing writer in Wings of Tavea. and while I am a bit sad the third and final book is coming out I am at the same time excited because I can't wait to see what Devri comes out with outside of the Solus Trilogy. I will be for sure picking it up no matter what it is she comes out with next!
Going to briefly go over what I didn't like in Wings of Tavea and that was sadly Emane and Kiora, I enjoyed them so much more in Wings of Arian. In Wings of Tavea though I felt they were a bit more whiny than usual. I understand they have the world on their shoulders and everything, so I am sure that causes them to stress or have nervous break downs like Kiora did about 10 times in Wings of Tavea, but it still did get on my nerves. I still love them, oh yes I do, but they did frustrate me.
Moving on to what I LOVED and that was easily hands down Drustan and Alcander. First off Drustan is just my favorite character now, I love his personality, and I love that he is a shifter. I mean...come on I can not get over still how awesome that would be to be able to transform into a freakin DRAGON whenever you wanted, or whatever you feel like transforming into. Drustan is the friend that keeps everything together I feel, and without him Emane and Kiora would surely have died along time ago!
Now onto our newly added beautiful character Alcander! I feel bad saying this...really I do especially since in my Wings of Arian review I talked about how much I loved Emane and Kiora...well now I am SO in love with the idea of Alcander and Kiora...when it comes down to it I find Alcander was much more interesting than Emane AND I do believe he is the better match for Kiora! I guess we shall see how this all plays out though. (fingers crossed for Alcander!!!!)
Overall this was an amazing sequel to what is so far an amazing series. What I really love about the Solus trilogy is while the romance does play a big part in the story, I always feel at the end of the book the main focus was on good conquering evil, and THAT is what is important. Wings of Tavea is an adventure fantasy that I believe will leave it's readers on the edge of their seat and then dying for book three once they finally reach the end!
