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.
- I received this book free though Xpresso Book Tours.
See my review of the first book, Nocturne here. And see my reviews of the Fourth Element trilogy books 1 & 2 here and book 3 here. I strongly suggest you read at least Nocturne before reading Solis, but if you read the Fourth Element trilogy first you’ll have a lot more of the character’s backgrounds and the Fourth Talisman series will carry more emotional weight.
It’s hard to review another Kat Ross book, simply because they are all amazing! Nocturne left off at a huge cliffhanger, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Solis. It did not disappoint.
It’s thoughtful, mature (not as in x-rated, but as in developed and substantial,) and exciting. I love the complicated relationships between characters and the conflicting motivations (sometimes within the same character.) For a fantasy book this keeps it really grounded.
The world building is excellent. The books is fast-paced. What else can I say? Kat Ross hits another one out of the park. Fantasy readers who haven’t yet been introduced to her NEED to get their hands on one of her books.
