Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Devri Walls' "Wings of Arian"

Title: Wings of Arian (Solus #1)
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Genre: YA Fantasy

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.

My Review:

OMG!!!! OMG!!!! OMG!!!! That doesn't even begin to cover how I feel about this book!! I can't even get over the fact that I was able to review it!! "Wings of Arian" has romance, adventure, lies, passion and intrigue. Devri engulfs the reader into the extraordinary and beautiful world and holds us captive until the very end. So what's this story about??

Imagine your world as you know if was a complete lie. That's exactly what happens to  Kiora. Yes only sixteen and her life is crumbling around her. Kiora comes face to face with creatures she never even knew excised. If only that were the end of her problems, the vile ( but hilarious) Dralazar  would love nothing more than to rule over it all.

 Now Kiora must take this unwanted  journey on her own, she will have a Protector in the form of the yummy yet irritating  Prince Emane *sigh*. If they want to live, Kiora and Emane must learn to trust each other if only they could stop arguing!  Here's where the story really heats up y'all *giggle*  I loved all the sexual tension and snippy conversations between these two!!
Can Kiora learn to trust Emane and will she long enough to defeat Dralazar? Will they both put their pride aside long enough to follow their hearts?
What I Thought:

There was SO much going on in "Wings of Arian, however I never felt lost or confused.  I adored every one of the characters even the ones I probably shouldn't have (Dralazar) He sent out his little minions to do his job but some how things always seemed to backfire on him. 

The love/hate relationship between Kiora and Emane was so entertaining to watch.  They absolutely hated each other but underneath all of that hate there was smoldering passion just waiting for a trigger to explode. 

The writing in "Wings of Arian" was so realistic, I honestly felt like I was right there through the entire book. It was all so vivid and breath taking. This book truly has a little bit of something for every one!
Title: Wings of Tavea (Solus #2)
Publication Date: December 11, 2012
Genre: YA Fantasy

Kiora is rapidly learning that evil and lies come in shades of black and white and swirling greys, but nothing could have prepared her for the shock of leaving Meros.
Kiora and her protector Emane step through the pass into a world they never knew existed but were always meant to save, only to find it far worse than they could have ever imagined. Good has been forced into hiding for its own survival, while the rest of the land bows to the Shadow, a force that pushes any remaining thoughts of Dralazar from Kiora’s mind. This land is full of new creatures, each more dangerous than the last. Her visions have taken on a deadly twist, and magic, or what comes of it, was never so real. And then there is Alcander: a Tavean, their guide, and an entirely different kind of trouble.

Book Title: Wings of Nestor (Solus #3)
Publication Date: June 24, 2013

Kiora needs answers. Who is the Shadow? Who is Jasmine? Are they connected? And even more pressing—how can she stop the Shadow from using her dreams as a map to find them? They have escaped three times, but are living on borrowed time—and everybody knows it.

Kiora’s search will push her closer to Alcander, send her to the dragon mountain of Toopai, and lead straight back to Meros—where magic will finally return to the land of no magic. Answers will be uncovered and plans unearthed that have been waiting for thousands of years.

But with the Shadow’s forces gathering, the rebels are hurtling toward one outcome: war. Armed with knowledge and hope, Kiora is determined to change that path, but will fate allow it? Or will it teach her a hard lesson about following her own destiny?
