Kiora thought she had never heard a lie until she was sixteen. But she was wrong. Her entire existence was based on nothing but. She thought that evil did not exist. Lie. That magic was not real. Lie. And that the land of Meros was all there was. One more lie.
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.
*A review copy was provided by the author for an honest review*
In a world where magic and evil doesnt exist, Kiora's life -and those around her - is going to change dramatically. I'm not too much into sci-fi however I did enjoy this one once I got use to the world setting so for those that really enjoy a good sci-fi you'll want to pick this one up.
For a thousand years the land has not known that evil has been lurking right around the corner and knows nothing of the magic nor the magical beings that are there amoungst them. Kiora has been chosen as the Solus to protect the people. This is something that she finds disbelieving because she doesnt see herself as being one to stand up to evil and concur it. With every Solus there is a Protector and in this case it would be the King's son, Prince Emane. I could see where the whole love/relationship was going to end up but I did like seeing the relationship blossom and grow into what it came to be.
In a world created to start second guessing people's every intention with magic and a love that is so strong Wings of Arian is beautifully woven together and even though I'm not a sci-fi person I will be picking up book 2 when released to see what is coming next.
