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.

My Review:

Nazafareen has her powers back now and is having a hard time keeping her temper in check so that her powers don't get away from her and she causes a whole lot of damage.

A thousand years ago the Vatras tried to burn the world up and imprisoned friends of Nazafareen and now she has joined forces with a group of people to rescue her friends. To save her friends she must find the three talismans before the Vatras do or it could cost them more than they are willing to pay.

This has been a wonderful journey with Nazafareen, Javid, Darius and all the characters, in getting to know them more and watching Nazafareen fight her temper. While Nazafareen does have this very bad temper she cares more for her friends than to let it get out of hand and she will do whatever she has to, to save her friends and stand up for what is right. Nazafareen maybe a girl with a temper but she has a big heart for her people and always tries to do the right thing no matter what it may cost her.

I have enjoyed walking this journey with Nazafareen and all the other characters and learning about their world and the Greek mythology. I couldn't read it fast enough to get to the end to find out how it all turned out. I mean you never want a good book to end but sometimes you just got to know, right? After reading book one Nocturne I was glad that I had book two Solis so I could just jump right into it when I finished Nocturne.

If you like reading books about mythology and magic then you are going to love Solis but let me suggest that you read book one first as you don't want to miss out on a thing.
