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 a
traitor within Val Moraine’s walls that may prove to be his downfall.

Solis is the second novel in Kat Ross’s Fourth Talisman series and is
another exhilarating, adventure driven story full of excitement, action
and thrilling romance that will take readers across a dangerous desert
land on the brink of war.
In the heart of Delphi,
Nazafareen desperately searches for a way to rescue her friends
Herodotus and Javid who have been taken prisoner by the Oracle and are
going to be executed. Joining forces with the followers of Dionysius,
Nazafareen and her new allies plan a daring rescue as rumours of the
Avas Vatras, an ancient clan of daevas known to wield fire simmer across
the lands. Unbeknown to Nazafareen, Darius is also being held captive
by the cult of Apollo and determined to outlast his captor even as her
methods become increasingly violent. Wanting to stop the rise of the
Avas Vatras who will surely burn the world to the ground if they escape
their otherworldly prison, Nazafareen will need to find three powerful
talismans capable of stopping them before her enemies do. Yet as
Nazafareen and Darius wage their own fights, will they be able to find
their way back to each other or will they be kept apart indefinitely?
always know when I begin a Kat Ross novel that I’m in for a thrilling
tale. Honestly, I’m yet to read a novel written by her that hasn’t been
spectacularly told and addictive and Solis is really no exception to
this rule. Unfolding in third person and once again following
Nazafareen, Darius, Victor and Culach amongst others, Solis was equal
measure excitement and adventure with moments of romance and friendship
Perfectly written, Solis continues on where
the last novel left off and primarily depicts Nazafareen’s continuing
journey to find a way to restore her lost memories while finding herself
caught in the middle of a much bigger danger driven by the Oracle of
Delphi, the Pythia, who has mysterious but clearly evil intentions.
Author Kat Ross is yet to make the Pythia’s motives known but it’s clear
that her desires for the talismans will play a large part in the
continuing storyline of the series and seeing as I’m enjoying getting to
know the other societies and divisions this side of the gate, I’m keen
to discover what they are down the track.
continues to be a strong character to follow and I feel like she’s as
kick ass as ever. I missed seeing her and Darius together in this
instalment with the majority of the novel seeing them distances apart
although I enjoyed their reunion and continue to lap up any moments that
featured Culach—honestly adore this guy; more than I ever anticipated I
Ending in an intriguing manner, Solis was
another highly addictive and entertaining novel and leaves me keen to
see what Kat Ross does next with the third instalment. I have no doubt
it will be as thrilling and enjoyable as its predecessors.

Great review, Rachel! This sounds like a solid sequel and a great series overall!ReplyDelete
Thank you soooo much, Rachel, I love your review! And I laughed when you said that about Culach because I feel the same way. I kinda hated him in Queen of Chaos but then he grew on me and now I have a serious crush, lol.ReplyDelete
