Book tour: The Wind Whisperer

Today I'm proud to be a part of the 'The Wind Whisperer tour', hosted by Dark World Books. To view other stops on this tour just click on the banner.

The Wind Whisperer
At fifteen, Anaii is the most important member of her tribe—and the most mysterious. Ever since Anaii can remember, the spirits of the wind have whispered of fertile hunting grounds and imminent enemy attacks. But when her people are ambushed by a brother clan without any apparent cause, the spirits remain eerily silent.
As the village prepares to retaliate, Anaii is pressured by her best friend, Elan, to marry him. It’s an old plea—Elan has spent a lifetime loving her, but Anaii only sees a childhood playmate out of an imposing warrior. Stifled by Elan’s insistence, Anaii escapes into the forest where she meets Jayttin, the beautiful son of the enemy chief.
Enamored by Jayttin’s carefree spirit and hope for peace, she repeatedly sneaks away to be with him, but when her deception is discovered, Elan is devastated. Pledging his lifelong affection, Elan gives her a passionate kiss, and Anaii begins to see her friend in a new light.
While Anaii is tormented over which man she must choose, the wind whispers of a new threat that could destroy both tribes. Only a union will afford a chance at survival, but the reality of that union is based on one thing—which man Anaii chooses to die.

Anaii is the daughter of the chief, but she is more important than just that. She has been given a gift from the gods, a gift to be able to hear the wind spirits  and gather information that can help her tribe, especially escape a brutal massacre from an enemy tribe who planned to attack while they all slept. But why did the Zenni tribe attack after having ten years of peace? Well, that's something Anaii's father wants to find out.

The Wind Whisperer proved to be a beautifully written story with plenty of action and suspense to keep the reader turning the page. Anaii started out as a great character, sympathetic and a bit vulnerable as she's forced to watch (with the help of the spirits) as her village is attacked and the people she cares about forced to fight to protect their home and all of the tribe. But as the story moved on I found Anaii becoming more selfish and couldn't agree with several of the decisions she made. One thing that really annoyed me about Anaii was that she kept Elan and Jayttin dangling, holding back her own emotions from them.

The Wind Whisperer is definitely a unique story and besides the irritations I felt from Anaii's character, it's still a story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Romance, intrigue, action, suspense, as well as a healthy dose of teen angst, all of these combine to make a thrilling read that is hard to put down. I would recommend The Wind Whisperer to anyone who loves a good Native American tale or for anyone who is looking for a well-written love triangle.
