Review and giveaway: Wings of Arian by Devri Walls

Solus #1
Publisher: Stonehouse Ink
Publication date: 24th April 2012

Thousands of years ago the land of Meros was closed off from the outside world, and over the years the rulers of Meros have told their subjects that evil, lies and magic do not exist. So when village girl Kiora is told that she is the Solus a human gifted with magic who is destined to battle evil, she has a hard time understanding what is expected of her. Kiora learns that the visions she as seen since childhood are a tiny part of the magic that she must now learn to protect Meros from the evil Dralazar.

Wings of Arian is very much Kiora's story as she transforms from a young village girl into the powerful defender of her land, she can't however do it alone and in true fairy tale style she is given a protector who just happens to be the very gorgeous Prince Emane. Their initial partnership is an uneasy one with so much pressure and expectation on them. For Emane having no magical powers he feels useless and frustrated, fearing that he won't be able to be much of a protector for Kiora and for Kiora the scale of what she must learn and how quickly she must do it as at times very overwhelming. I have to say I loved that Emane the protector took a bit of a back seat to young Kiora as she quickly learned what she is capable of, a little bit of girl power is a good thing in my eyes!

Kiora and Emane's partnership turns into love in the most unlikeliest of background but it's actually very sweet and Emane is the perfect fairytale prince that Kiora needs. With dragons, shape shifters, guardians and Pegasus Wings of Arian has everything you would want from a young adult fantasy adventure book. If you are a fan of Maria V. Snyder's Healer or Study series then definitely give this one a go.
