A hauntingly beautiful fairy tale about love and loss, this Echo North companion novel is perfect for fans of the Winternight Trilogy.
In the dark, cold reaches of the north lives a storyteller and his daughter. He told his daughter, Satu, many stories—romances like the girl who loved a star and changed herself into a nightingale so she could always see him shining—but the most important story he told her was his own. This storyteller was once the formidable North Wind, but he lost his power by trading it away in exchange for mortality—he loved her mother too much to live without her. The loss of his magic impacted more than just their family, however, and now the world is unraveling in the wake of this imbalance.
To save the North, Satu embarks on a perilous journey to reclaim her father’s magic, but she isn’t the only one searching for it. In the snow-laden mountains, she finds herself in a deadly race with the Winter Lord who wants the North Wind’s destructive powers for himself.
Satu has the chance to be the heroine of her own fairy tale, only this one has an ending she never could have imagined.

❧ Bookish Coven Rating
Such a small word, love. And yet it is the oldest power in the universe. It is what the world is made of. It pulses and stretches inside of me, warm and strong and good.”
“Wind Daughter” is a companion novel to “Echo North” and while you don’t have to read them in order, there is an overlap of characters that make the story easier to follow and there are of course mild spoilers. I read Echo’s story first, which I loved (review of that book will be posted soon!) so I was really excited to dive in her world so soon! The story is very atmospheric and even though I wasn’t as fond of Satu as I was of Echo, she eventually won my heart.
Emotion leaks out of me in salt water, no matter what kind it is–if I’m happy or sad, pensive or wistful, I cry. The only way to stop it is to shove my feelings deep down, frost them over with layers of ice. Hope the ice doesn’t crack.”
Without going into too many details of the plot, “Wind Daughter” is a magical tale of loss and compassion, of love and heartbreak. A really good enemies to lovers tale.
The author expands on the lore of the previous book, and overall the world building is great, the characters are nicely formed and the prose is reminisced of a fairy tale.
Stories unfold inside of me. I am ready, at last, to take charge of mine.”
I greatly enjoyed reading “Wind Daughter” and I’m looking forward to reading more of Joanna Ruth Meyer’s works.
