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.
