With Aleric telling her that evil is knocking on the door and that she is the only one who can stop them she has a choice to make. Refuse, or start the wildest most painful ride of her life.

She reluctantly dips her toe into her new existence of magic and threads, dragons and shapeshifters, and the person who wants to take control of it all: the evil Dralazar.

However, this journey was never meant to be hers alone. She will be accompanied by a Protector. To her disbelief, and utter irritation they name the hotheaded, stubborn, non-magical, (albeit gorgeous) Prince Emane. They will have to trust each other with their lives, but right now Kiora would settle for a non hostile conversation.

And now it comes down to this, If you had never heard a lie, would you know when you heard one? Is knowing good from evil innate? Kiora finds herself having to decide who lives and who dies on those very questions.

REVIEW: Wings of Arian is a phenomenal novel that compliments the fantasy genre exceptionally well. This story has adventure, mythical creatures, heroic characters, and energy with a touch of romance. Kiora has just found out that she is someone very important to the magical community, she is the Solus. As she is pulled into this fantasy realm where things are not as they seem, a great burden is placed on her shoulders…a great battle has been waging for thousands of years between good and evil and now they need her help. Her loyalty is strong although she has lost everything that means the most to her in her world. She originally has doubts as to how a child, such as herself, can provide such greatness as prophesied. As the adventure begins, she meets friends and allies along the way including her Protector, Emane. Together, they must make decisions that could decide the fate of their kingdom as they know it.

While reading this story, the author really pulled me in with all of the creative, magical creatures that play a role in training the Solus in her destined duties. My favorite character is Morcant, an allied dragon who has a short temper and a vastly pure heart. He provides Kiora with a friendship that only her elders can understand. His fierce loyalty to Kiora gives her not only the strength that she needs, but wisdom to carry on through her continued adventures. Another character that resonated strongly with me is Emane. I tried really hard to dislike Emane at first, but his charm and unyielding devotion to Kiora, as her friend and Protector won me over in the end. The other characters in which I did not name in this review are all wonderful supporting characters to this story; however, Morcant and Emane are the two that made me relish in the adventure that much more! Since this story is fantasy, I recommend it to men and women who enjoy reading about magic and adventure. It definitely was that! I really appreciate the entirety of this book. This is the first book in the Wings Series and I am very enthusiastic about starting book two here in the near future. I did find a lot of errors; however, I did not feel that it took too much away from the story. It is easy to read and the author is very descriptive with emotional viewpoints and appearances. I found most of the characters exceptional and important to the grand scheme of the story. Overall, I rate this novel with five stars due to the creativity and flawless back stories that each character shared.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Devri Walls lives in Meridian, Idaho with her family and one adorable little mutt. She writes in all things fantasy and would do just about anything for a working magic wand.

 She graduated with a degree in theater and has studied vocal performance most of her life. She now teaches voice lessons when she’s not writing novels, cooking dinner, playing taxi, spending time with her amazingly supportive husband or trying to read.
