Review

In the previous book, Kiva challenged the old traditions to become a Windwalker. Her actions inspired other women to join other sects that were traditionally closed to women and, even though there are some who are opposed to these changes, women's roles in this society continue to evolve as the threat of Sharun invasion looms over the Basin. When the son of one of Kiva's mother's friends goes missing, Kiva promises to find the boy. While searching for the boy, Kiva's brother and several other residents seem to disappear into the sand. Kiva is determined to find her brother and her search leads her to a place between life and death.

I am so happy that H.G. Chambers decided to continue this thread and expand upon it! The society and culture continue to be as robust as in the previous book; however, much of the Basin's politics are secondary to the action and adventure elements of the plot. The society's culture, while also secondary, provides an interesting explanation behind the disappearances. I greatly enjoyed this glimpse of this world's religion and mythology. Chambers continued to amaze me by building on the picturesque desert landscape he created in the previous book while creating new settings and characters for Kiva to interact with.

Kiva's character continues to evolve as she embraces her duties as a Windwalker. During her adventurous search for her brother, we learn even more about Kiva's opinions and views of the world around her. I thought Kiva had the potential to become an engaging character in the last book, and Chambers seems to have put a lot of effort into creating a female protagonist who is strong and likable.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again; Kiva and the "Windwalker" series are comparable to Moreta's and Nerilka's narratives found in the "Dragonriders of Pern" series. I can't wait to see how Chambers continues this amazing fantasy series.

I was born in British Columbia, Canada, but spent most of my youth on the beaches of Maui. Throughout my life, I’ve been fortunate enough to explore my passions. I’ve had harrowing experiences as a helicopter pilot, drying cherries in the desert mountains of Washington state. I’ve toured with a band down the eastern seaboard in a $2,000 van, surviving on Arby’s fixins, and selling CDs for gas money. I’ve built websites and designed logos for businesses all over North America. Of everything I’ve tried, writing fantasy is by far the most exciting and fulfilling.

My whole life I have been fascinated by stories. Especially the kind of stories that transport you into incredible worlds where the impossible becomes real; where epic battles between good and evil rage across the centuries. This sense of escape and wonderment are what I hope to embody within my own work.
