Warriors of Wing and Flame is the second book in a new young adult fantasy series Sisters of Shadow and Light by author Sara B. Larson. I loved the first book and I was completely enchanted by the tale of the two sisters and their bond in Sisters of Shadow and Light , so I was really excited to get the second book and dive right into it. The Sisters of Shadow and Light series will appeal to fantasy lovers young and old. It is reminiscent of classic fairy tales, and the story still manages to feel fresh and unique. I know this was originally meant to be a duology, but I am still holding out hope that there will be more books, whether they are a continuance of this series or a spin off. Warriors of Wing and Flame ends at a good place, with the story nicely wrapped up, but I can still envision plenty of things that would allow the story to continue on in this world, and I am really hoping that Sara Larson gives us another book! (or several)
My Favorite aspect of the first book was the bond between sisters, Zuhra and Inara, and I have to say that was my favorite aspect of the story again. Warriors of Wing and Flame, like the first book, was told in dual narrative between the sisters; however, this story focused more on Inara. I loved that it did because Zuhra was more of the main character in the first book. It was nice to see Inara shine in this one. I love Sara B. Larson’s ability to make a story feel magical. Her writing is beautiful and easily transported me back to the magical world of Visempirum. This book takes place right after the events of the first book, which puts our main characters right in the middle of a continuing adventure. View Spoiler » Along the way, the sisters have help from family and friends and I just adored everything about their journey. It was heartfelt, and though sad at times it was so wonderful.
The Sisters of Shadow and Light series makes me feel a whole spectrum of emotions. The Sisters of Shadow and Light series is a story of adventure, magic, friendship and the bonds of sisterhood. Sara B. Larson does a fantastic job of making the story feel sweepingly epic and magical. I love Sara’s story telling abilities. As much as I loved the characters, I think Sara’s writing and story telling stole the show for me. I will read anything she writes because her stories are always so beautifully written. If you are a fan of fantasies, then Sisters of Shadow and Light and Warriors of Wing and Flame is a must read duology for you. I loved the writing, I loved the world and I really loved the two sisters. This book was great, and I am still keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed that we get another book in this world!
