First, things I look for in reviews: no sex. Even though there is a romance, yes a bit too convenient and early on in the book, it works and is cute, not too unbelievable or over the top. Just the right amount for a 14 yr old in my opinion.
There are several curse words that were not necessary, in my opinion, but were at least the milder variety. And did, actually, make me laugh, so...shame on me, lol.
The theme is not new, a girl chosen to save her people from evil, but done in a sweet, refreshing voice. The author shows a great progression in the main character, a girl, from a timid, less than confident girl to a young lady who has come to recognize her own worth. I read the author's blog after finishing the book and this was no accident on her part.
Also, all the characters have depth. The Pegasus has a wonderfully dry sense of humor, the dragon is a hoot...shapeshifters, fairies, etc... A great range of characters.
This book made me smile and laugh a lot, something I really enjoy in a book. I read a review that compared it to a cross between Graceling and Eragon. I've read both, and this did remind me a bit of Graceling, which is MUCH darker than this book and not something I let my 12 yr old read.
I wouldn't quite give it 5 stars, just because I have read a few lately that knocked it out of the ballpark, but this was a close 4 stars. I will definitely read the sequel. And I just told my daughter she could read it :D
I knew generally what was going to happen but by the time it did happen, I wanted anything but. The romance is sappy and the two united faster than I liked. The banter between Kiora and Emane was really cute in the opening chapters. But it was nice to have a relationship in a YA novel that was healthy. They cared for each other without the controlling, possessive, and jealous nature that many couples have in this age bracket.
Although the characters are 17 or so, this book is a very clean read. There's hints but nothing more on screen than a kiss. There was more action on that Go Daddy Superbowl commercial than what this book shows. So, both MG and YA readers can enjoy this book. There's some violence, but again it's downplayed. The focus is more on the intent of the characters than on the gore. (A-)
In the first book of The Solus Trilogy - Wings of Arian - Kiora learns that her entire life - her entire world - has all been lies. It feels like nothing is true anymore and everything has been turned upside down in an instant. Not only that, but now it seems that there's evil demanding control of everything and she must go on a journey to save the world. Just when she finds out a bit of seemingly good news, that she doesn't have to take this perilous journey alone - that she will be guarded by a Protector - things continue to go from bad to worse. The Protector that must journey with her is non other than the very irritating and stubborn Prince Emane - whose hotness is rivaled only by his hot temper. Kiora must embrace her destiny and take the plunge into the unknown to save herself and her world from destruction. Will she be able to succeed?
This was a really wonderful fantasy that blends all the right amounts of magic, alternate realms, and strange creatures together to form an awesome novel. The characters were really interesting, if not a bit stereotypical at times. I really liked Kiora right away - she was such an innocent girl before her world got flipped upside down. She shows a lot of character growth throughout the book as she steps up to take on her tasks and face her destiny head on. I was able to identify and empathize with her early on, so I was definitely rooting for her to succeed through the story. Prince Emane was the stereotypical hottie with a bad attitude, but had so much more underneath that nobody knew about. I really loved the intricate details and descriptions that the author put into creating the world of the novel and the history and politics surrounding the characters and the storyline.Read more ›
