Wings of Arian by Devri Walls
Series: Solus #1
Published: April 24th 2012
Wings1Synopsis:

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.

Wings of Tavea by Devri Walls
Series: Solus #2
Published: November, 2012
WingsSynopsis:
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 3
Wings of Nestor by Devri Walls
Series: Solus #3
Publication date: June 24th 2013
NestorSynopsis:

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

Her search for help will push her closer to Alcander, send her to the dragon mountain of Toopai, and 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, it looks like the land’s path is hurtling towards one outcome: war with the Shadow and death to all rebels. Armed with knowledge and hope, Kiora is determined to change that path. But will fate allow it? Or will it deal her a hard lesson about following ones own destiny?

Excerpt

Alcander followed her silently back to where Eleana stood, waiting. As they stepped through the boundary, Eleana started in surprise and then leaned forward as if she had seen a ghost. “Adair?”

Alcander looked uncomfortable. “No, I’m sorry. That was my grandfather.”

“The resemblance is remarkable.”

“I have been told that.”

“Alcander, this is Eleana,” Kiora said.

“I have heard much about you.” Alcander gave a shallow bow.

“Prince Alcander, has Kiora told you what we are requesting?”

Alcander looked at Kiora, who was intently studying her feet. “No, she has told me nothing.”

“Kiora has told you her theory of how the Shadow is finding you?”

“She has.”

“I believe she is right. I think the Shadow is scrying for images of Jasmine. It explains the problems Lomay had with the Wings, as well as how you have been found three times in such a short period.”

“But that would mean . . .” Alcander trailed off.

“Yes. It is scrying through every dream or vision there is.”

Alcander went pale. “The amount of magic that would take would be—”

“Very large, yes.” Eleana nodded. “Alcander, I need to ask you a question. When the gates were sealed to Meros, one of the Lights had been taken by the Shadow. How many does it have now?”

Alcander raised an eyebrow. “Epona does not know?”

“Unfortunately, we don’t know anything that happened after the gate shut. The magic we used to lock ourselves away also kept the Wings from receiving visions of anything outside Meros.”

“The Shadow has them all.”

Eleana’s eyes closed for a moment. “That would easily supply enough magic to do what we are suggesting.”

Alcander inclined his chin. “What do you need from me?”

“I need you to join minds with Kiora.” Eleana looked apologetic.

Alcander jolted and looked to Kiora. “Is this what you want?” Turning back to Eleana, he demanded, “Have you told her what that entails?”

Eleana evaluated Alcander. “I was more worried about your acceptance than hers.”

Alcander scowled. Stepping toward Kiora, he set his hand gently on her arm. The magic flowed between them. Kiora looked into his eyes. “Kiora,” he whispered, leaning his forehead against hers. Her stomach leaped. “I know you’re confused, but you need to understand. If you do this—if we do this—it will make the bond even stronger than it was. You will understand me in a way no one else does.” He swallowed, his voice rough. “And I you.”

Kiora bit her lip, trying to tear her gaze from Alcander’s searching eyes. “I don’t think we have a choice.”

Alcander’s fingers tightened around her arm before relaxing. “There is always a choice,” he said. “We can find another to stand in my place. We can find Lomay.”

“But when?” She put her hand over his. “What if I fall asleep? What if next time, we don’t get away from the Shadow?”

He looked intently at her. “I will do this for you. I am willing. And you know why. But I need you to understand the implications of this. The bond we have—” Kiora looked shyly away. “It will only grow stronger. You will not be able to hide it.”

Kiora gulped. From Emane. That was what Alcander had meant, but not said. “I understand.”

The turmoil raging inside Kiora swelled into an all-encompassing storm. The magic coming from Alcander was different as he touched her this time, softer. It was blissful, and she was carried away in it. She could feel her magic flowing to him in return. Emane would be crushed, but this had to be done.

And underneath the logic of the choice, a desire flickered. She wanted to understand Alcander, to see behind all his walls. He must have seen the desire in her eyes as she looked at him because his gaze grew tender and the magic flowed even stronger.
