Saving Sol’kyr takes place in the middle of Race Against the Dark when Haylie/Ka’lei goes into a coma. This is stated in the forward at the beginning of the book. This book can be read alone but I would suggest reading Race Against the Dark first. Only because some of the chapters can be confusing if you haven’t read the series before.
What I didn’t realize in Race Against the Dark was that Sol’kyr was so damaged. I thought he was a little aloof. So I wasn’t ready for the PTSD diagnosis that Morough gave him. When it was revealed that Sol’kyr was a child assassin and abused by his parents, I wanted to cry. But it did explain a lot that I didn’t understand in the first book (if that makes sense).
Seeing Punkin in the state that she was in triggered his PTSD. Sol’kyr blamed himself for not going back to rescue Punkin and he blamed himself for her being near death. As Morough tried to explain to Sol’kyr, it wasn’t his fault. He did not have the resources to go and rescue Punkin. Again, I was near tears because I agreed with Morough about that.
I loved, loved, loved that cats were used as therapy animals in this book. I didn’t even think about them in that sense. Emotional support animals, yes. But trained therapy animals, no. The effect that Punkin and Fable had on Sol’kyr was immediate. He smiled, something that Morough mentioned that he didn’t do unless he was trying to charm the ladies. He was also more at ease. He lost that haunted look that he had. I wanted to cry when I was reading those scenes because, well, I know what it’s like to live with PTSD.
The end of the book was great. Now, I said I wanted to cry during certain scenes with Morough and Sol’kyr. I did cry when Iliastaire, Morough’s father, told Sol’kyr that he tried to get him out of the hell hole that he grew up in. That Sol’kyr was the son of his heart. Talk about waterworks. Other than that, I can’t really go into the end of the book (Booo, I know). But I will say that it does tie directly into certain events in Race Against the Dark.
Also, all proceeds from this book are going to help a cat in need. So, go buy it and help a cat out!!!
My Summary of Saving Sol’kyr: 4 stars
Saving Sol’kyr was a great read. I enjoyed reading about Morough, Sol’kyr, Velicor, and Lin’ra’s mission to go find Punkin. It ended up turning into a rescue mission for Punkin and a mission to try to heal Sol’kyr. Like I said above, though, I would highly suggest reading Race Against the Dark before reading this book. There are references and chapters that will confuse you if you don’t.

I received this book in return for an honest review.
I liked the book, I just liked it, but it was better than the "Race Against the Dark" in which the time frame takes place. Don't get me wrong the "Race Against the Dark" was a good read and recommended when picking this one up, I had a hard time loving it. This book is making reconsider, along with the help of Amriss's "Mage of Legend," which all have, including this book, my favorite character in Amriss's world, Velithor, I am going to give "Race Against the Dark" another shot.
That aside, this book was a nice, peaceful read. It didn't really show signs of getting to anything important until about 60% in, but I think that was for an introduction to the characters; a more in-depth introduction than she was able to do in "Race Against the Dark." which is a nice change of pace. It was also nice to get the story from the opposite point of view, where with "Race Against the Dark" is from Haylie/Ka'lei's point of view, this one is from Morough's point of view. What I enjoyed the most from this book was the experiences of elves that have never seen the human world and how they reacted to things here that aren't in their own world. I like books about that sort of thing, so that's what really drew me into reading it.
To top it off it is for a good cause and if nothing else you get something for helping the cause and I hope you enjoyed the book as much as I did.
