Shadow Wings by Rate Wagner and Kelly St Clare Review

Summary

King Irdelron is dead. Lord Irrik is now Lord Tyrrik and free from his blood oath. Ryn is part drae, part phaetyn and she knows nothing will ever be the same again. Her 18th birthday draws near and with that, her drae transformation. Tyrrik refuses to leave her side, which is making it hard for Ryn to try and move on. Right before she transforms, Kamoi, a phaetyn prince, asks them to go with him to Zivist Forest, home of the phaetyns. King Caletyvn asks Ryn, Dyter, and Tyrrik to go and try to make alliances for when they fight against the drae Emperor Draedyn. While traveling, they must be careful not to attract the unwanted attention of the emperor. After Ryn transforms, the emperor will feel her energy and come looking for her. Ryn still doesn't trust Tyrrik but needs him to help her control her drae side. Ryn doesn't know if she should trust Kamoi but wanted to learn more about her phaetyn side. Can she ever trust anyone again? She must find out who she can trust and how she can help save the kingdom.

Feedback

This was an amazing second entry into The Darkest Drae series. I honestly enjoyed this one way more than the first book. There is more story and plot to this book which heightens the interest. Ryn, Tyrrik, and Dyter must travel the land to try and form alliances against the evil Emperor Draedyn. They start by going to Zivost Forest where the phaetyn live. On the way there, Ryn’s transformation begins. I really enjoyed seeing Ryn come into both of her powers. Her transformation and learning her drae side was very absorbing. The color of the scales and the way they take over the body is something a reader can truly imagine. There is so much more development of this world because we get to see past Verald and harvest zone 7.
Ryn. Holy pancakes, can I just talk for a minute about how much I love her character? In all honesty, she is amazing. She has such a strong personality and her sense of humor had me smiling practically throughout the whole book. I love her relationship with Dyter and am glad we were able to get more of him in this book. And then there is Tyrrik. Since book one, I knew Tyrrik was going to be an amazing character. At some points it was really frustrating to read because you know Ryn and Tyrrik are supposed to be together. Ryn has to overcome her past and learn to trust him. We get more personality from each character and the reward is huge. All the of them work so well together to truly create a wonderful book.

Final Thoughts

Overall, Shadow Wings by Raye Wagner and Kelly St. Clare was an amazing read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy. The story is rich and fun to read. There is always more action and snarky comments by Ryn. A growth in the characters relationship is truly rewarding. I highly recommend continuing the series with this book and cannot wait for book 3 to come out!
