Conar McGregor barely survived the horrific Labyrinth and his subsequent freedom as the Dark Lord seeking vengeance against his long time enemy the evil sorcerer Kaileel Tohre. He remained alive in the Labyrinth and afterward by dreaming of his beloved wife Liza. However, while he was thought dead, Liza, who loved Conar with her soul, married his best friend Legion A’Lex. Her second spouse loved her even before she wed Conar, but hid his feelings until he concluded that his friend was dead.
However, Conar returns from the dead and wants Liza back. Legion has tasted heaven and feels his wife reciprocates so he refuses to cede the field to Conar. Liza must choose between her first husband who she loves with all her soul and her second spouse who she loves with all her heart. Kaileel plans to use the triangle to kill Conar.
The sixth tale in the Windlegend saga, WINDDREAMER, is a terrific dark romantic fantasy that centers on a triangle that will tear at the hearts of the audience as each of the trio deserves better than fate’s latest torment. Conar is a battered tortured soul whose solace is Liza and knows Legion has been a loyal friend; Liza loves both her men who she feels deserve the best, which she begins to believe is not her as she struggles to choose knowing one will be shattered; Legion is a good person who loves Liza and cherishes his fond friendship he once had with Conar. Throw in the evil Machiavellian sorcerer into the already entangled relationships lead to a great fantasy although reading the previous tales especially Book V, WINDREAPER, enhances the experience.
