In 1533 (on an alternate earth), Hesar kidnapped the youngest Prince of Chalea Riain Cree. He frees himself only to be captured by the Northwinds aristocracy. When Prince de Vienes learns the identity of his prisoner, he quickly realizes that their enemy’s enemy is their friend as they fight Hesar and do not need to alienate the powerful Cree dynasty.
Riain wants to go home, but suffers debilitating and potentially deadly Labyrinthian Fever, de Vienes’s daughter Suzanna is the healer, but she has her own evil agenda involving her ailing patient. Only his mother, a member of the Multitude, understands the threat Suzanna poses to her son and enters the Shadowlands seeking help from the Oracle.
Fantasy readers will gain immense pleasure from the deeply vivid complex PRINCE OF THE WINDS. The hero struggles with overcoming his illness and evil to do the right thing. Suzanna is quite the character spinning a dark web throughout the taut story line so that the audience receives a terse thriller inside a fantasy realm. Charlotte Boyett-Compo shows her tale spinning abilities to paint a unique world with this fresh but darker than usual (at least from this wonderful author) epic fantasy that will send readers to the four corners seeking the tremendous “Wind” novels.
