Title Warriors of Wing and Flame (Sisters of Shadow and Light #2)

Author Sara B. Larson

Release Date October 27, 2020

Publisher Tor Teen

Description from Amazon

The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.

In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.

Initial Thoughts

I had been waiting to get my hands on an ARC of this book since I finished SOSAL. I sent an email to Tor Teen in February and they fulfilled my wish in May. Please note, it’s July right now and I know I will be reading this book again in October when it comes out.

Some Things I Liked

  • The romances. SOSAL focused on Zuhra and Raiden and I loved that WOWAF focused more on Inara.
  • Rich world building. I loved the worlds Sara B. Larson created in the Visempirum and the human world. I thought the impact the Paladins had on the human world was really well explained and I thought there was a mindfulness in the way both groups impacted the other.
  • All the feelings. This book took me through a full spectrum of emotions. For a single book, it had a lot of action and so many things happened in a short period of time. I laughed, I cried, and everything in between.
  • Tying up of loose ends. I liked that everything was neatly tied up at the end of this series.

Series Value

As mentioned above, I liked that everything was neatly tied up but I still think there is plenty of spin-off / sequel value here. I’d love to see more about these characters and the world of the Paladins.

Final Thoughts

I just loved this book. Despite being an October 2020 release and numerous other obligations, I read it right away. Thank you so much to Tor Teen and Sara B. Larson for providing a copy – I loved this series so much.


Recommendations for Further Reading

  • Defy by Sara B. Larson – if you like her writing, do yourself a favor and check out her other books.
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber – if you liked the sisters element and the world building of this story, try the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber.
  • Furyborn by Claire Legrand – if you liked the dual POV and complexity of the world building and you’re looking for something a little more mature, give this series by Claire Legrand a try.
