In the second volume of the Fourth Talisman series, Nazafareen’s path takes a twist, setting her on a journey into the heart of the maelstrom…
It’s been a thousand years since the Avas Vatras tried to burn the world to ashes. A thousand years since they were imprisoned in the brutal wasteland called the Kiln. But revenge is a dish best served cold—even, apparently, by the children of fire.
In Delphi, Nazafareen joins forces with the followers of Dionysius to rescue her friends from the Oracle’s dungeons and seek out the three talismans whose extraordinary powers stopped the Vatras before. With her own breaking magic growing stronger by the day, she must walk a razor’s edge to control her volatile temper. And if the Vatras find the talismans first, their last hope will die.
In the frozen wastes of the Valkirin range, Victor strikes an uneasy bargain with bitter enemies to keep his tenuous grip on the Maiden Keep. The other holdfasts are coming for him. But it’s an enemy within Val Moraine’s walls that may prove to be his downfall.
See… I told you when I reviewed Nocturne that Solis was just around the corner and that I was going to review it for you. Do you really expect that one of Kat’s books slips by me without reading and reviewing?
Nah… you (my beloved readers) know way better than this!
So when we left Nocturne, things were not good friends!
Truth be told, they are not looking much better now, but I got my wish and my favorite peeps found each other again.
I do not think I would have coped well, with Darius and Nazafareen were still together at the end of Solis! So YAY thanks Kat!!
We have made progress, things are happening… We get to have a bit more backstory about those Talismans and what may be going on at the moment. Kat gives us a little and holds out on a lot! But as I said we have a much-improved understanding now. I am assuming at the end of book 3 it will make all clear… so we wait.
I still hate the Pythia of Delphi.
Such a hateful person… I am really starting to wonder about her and I cannot help myself to think that she may belong to one of those “witches” families (Danai, Valkirin or Marakai). Could she be actually Vatras when you take into account her hatred of them?
I am speculating here, cause it has been bothering me. There is a huge twist surrounding her that I cannot wait to read!
I would be very curious as to what your possible guesses would be guys. Any suggestions? Have I lost it totally?
It comes as no surprise then when I tell you that Solis is a must read and well you really do need to have read Nocturne first. If you are addicted to the series already then, you already know this is some awesome stuff!
I am starting to think that I actually need these books as hard copies because as I am reading, I think of a previous plot point in the previous books and it is a pain in the behind to actually do that with ebooks. Yup. I think proper books in my hands stat! With intricate series, it makes it easier methinks!
Kat, well I do not need to tell you that you have slayed it again and now we wait for book 3. I always recommend starting with The Midnight Sea and going from there.
I really hope you all love Solis as much as I did!
